Guarantee and Compensation
Barco provides a guarantee relating to perfect manufacturing as part of the legally stipulated terms of guarantee. On receipt, the purchaser
must immediately inspect all delivered goods for damage incurred during transport, as well as for material and manufacturing faults Barco
must be informed immediately in writing of any complaints.
The period of guarantee begins on the date of transfer of risks, in the case of special systems and software on the date of commissioning,
at latest 30 days after the transfer of risks. In the event of justified notice of complaint, Barco can repair the fault or provide a replacement
at its own discretion within an appropriate period. If this measure proves to be impossible or unsuccessful, the purchaser can demand a
reduction in the purchase price or cancellation of the contract. All other claims, in particular those relating to compensation for direct or
indirect damage, and also damage attributed to the operation of software as well as to other services provided by Barco, being a component
of the system or independent service, will be deemed invalid provided the damage is not proven to be attributed to the absence of properties
guaranteed in writing or due to the intent or gross negligence or part of Barco.
If the purchaser or a third party carries out modifications or repairs on goods delivered by Barco, or if the goods are handled incorrectly,
in particular if the systems are commissioned operated incorrectly or if, after the transfer of risks, the goods are subject to influences not
agreed upon in the contract, all guarantee claims of the purchaser will be rendered invalid. Not included in the guarantee coverage are
system failures which are attributed to programs or special electronic circuitry provided by the purchaser, e.g. interfaces. Normal wear as
well as normal maintenance are not subject to the guarantee provided by Barco either.
The environmental conditions as well as the servicing and maintenance regulations specified in the this manual must be complied with by
the customer.

Environment
Do not install the projection system in a site near heat sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust or humidity. Be aware that room heat rises to the ceiling; check that temperature near the installation site is not
excessive
CAUTION:
Harmful Environmental Contamination Precaution
Environment condition check
A projector must always be mounted in a manner which ensures the free flow of clean air into the projectors ventilation inlets as well
as free flow at the ventilation outlets. The installation must also allow easy access to the consumable parts ( dustfilters, lamps, ...)
For installations in environments where the projector is subject to airborne contaminants such as that produced by smoke machines
or similar (these deposit a thin layer of greasy residue upon the projectors internal optics and imaging electronic surfaces, degrading
performance), then it is highly advisable and desirable to have this contamination removed prior to it reaching the projectors clean
air supply. Devices or structures to extract or shield contaminated air well away from the projector are a prerequisite, if this is not
a feasible solution then measures to relocate the projector to a clean air environment should be considered. Make sure that the
projector never runs with dirty dustfilters as this will dramatically reduce the lifetime of the consumables. It is advised to clean the
dustfilters on a regular basis and to replace them at any lamp change. Barco reserves itself the right to refuse warranty replacement
of consumables if they have been used in a projector with dirty airfilters. Only use the manufactures recommended cleaning kit which
has been specifically designed for cleaning optical parts, never use industrial strength cleaners on a projectors optics as these will
degrade optical coatings and damage sensitive optoelectronics .
Failure to take suitable precautions to protect the projector from the effects of persistent and prolonged air contaminants will culminate in extensive and irreversible ingrained optical damage. At this stage cleaning of the internal optical units will be non-effective
and impracticable. Damage of this nature is under no circumstances covered under the manufactures warranty and may deem the

2. Installation guidelines
warranty null and void. In such a case the client shall be held solely responsible for all costs incurred during any repair. It is the
clients responsibility to ensure at all times that the projector is protected from the harmful effects of hostile airborne particles in the
environment of the projector. The manufacture reserves the right to refuse warranty repair if a projector has been subject to wantful
neglect, abandon or improper use.
What about ambient light ?
The ambient light level of any room is made up of direct or indirect sunlight and the light fixtures in the room. The amount of ambient
light will determine how bright the image will appear. So, avoid direct light on the screen. Windows that face the screen should be
covered by opaque drapery while the set is being viewed. It is desirable to install the projection system in a room whose walls and
floor are of non-reflecting material. The use of recessed ceiling lights and a method of dimming those lights to an acceptable level
is also important. Too much ambient light will ‘wash out’ of the projected image. This appears as less contrast between the darkest
and lightest parts of the image. With bigger screens, the ‘wash out’ becomes more important. As a general rule, darken the room to
the point where there is just sufficient light to read or write comfortably. Spot lighting is desirable for illuminating small areas so that
interference with the screen is minimal.
Which screen type ?
There are two major categories of screens used for projection equipment. Those used for front projected images and those for rear
projection applications. Screens are rated by how much light they reflect (or transmit in the case of rear projection systems) given a
determined amount of light projected toward them. The ‘GAIN’ of a screen is the term used. Front and rear screens are both rated
in terms of gain. The gain of screens range from a white matte screen with a gain of 1 (x1) to a brushed aluminized screen with a
gain of 10 (x10) or more. The choice between higher and lower gain screens is largely a matter of personal preference and another
consideration called the Viewing angle. In considering the type of screen to choose, determine where the viewers will be located
and go for the highest gain screen possible. A high gain screen will provide a brighter picture but reduce the viewing angle. For
more information about screens, contact your local screen supplier.
Image size
The projector is designed for projecting an image size with a screenwidth from 1.00m (3.3ft) to 6.00m (19.7ft) with an aspect ratio of
16 to 9.

A 100% Off-Axis position means that the position of the centre of the lens is shifted by half the screen height.
Never use a short throw lens in an Off-Axis installation. Shifting the lens will not guarantee optimal image
quality.
CAUTION:
Only for projectors containing a Server (Single Board Computer) : The harddisk in the server is
formatted in horizontal position but can operate in all axes (6 directions). The projector should not be tilted
more then +/- 5 degrees from these positions, otherwise error rates will increase.

Setting up the RCU address
What has to be done ?
To allow the communication between the RCU and the projector the RCU has to be programmed with the same address as the
projector.
This address must be in the range 0–9.
To know the address of the projector, one can visualize it in projection mode (on screen) as well as in standby mode (shown with
the LED’s on top cover of the projector).
For more info on addresses see the appendix
At this stage the image projected may happen to be upside down or mirrored, this can be set in the Installation
menu under Projector orientation (see further setting up the projector’s orientation).

The projector’s address will be displayed on the screen in a Textbox
Programming the RCU
1. Push the address key If the address is not entered within 5 seconds, the RCU returns to its default address (zero address) and
controls then all projectors in the room.
2. Enter the same address with the digit buttons within 5 seconds after pushing the address key.
The projector can now be controlled with the RCU.
R59770079 BARCO ID H250/500 23/07/2007

5. Setup
For example : if the projector address is 3, then press "3" on the RCU to set the RCU’s address to match the
projector’s address.
Common address/Projector address : Beside the projector address, the projector disposes also of a Common
address which can be set to “0” or “1” (by default “0”).
In other words, an RCU set to address “0” will always control a projector regardless of its projector address
(since it uses the common address).
5.5
Setting up the projector address (only if necessary)
What can be done ?
The projector is shipped with projector address set to ”0”
In some cases the projector address must be changed, for example if an unique RCU is used to control 2 or more projectors (independently).
In the OSD menu Projector Address, the following addresses can be programmed :
•
Projector address: address defined by the user, may be from 0 to 255
0-9 is used for RCU communication, 0–255 being used for RS232 serial communication.
•
Common address : address may be 0 or 1

5.10.2 Automatic startup
What can be done ?
The automatic startup allows to bypass the standby state i.e. start up without going in standby state after switching on the projector.
This means that the automatic startup allows immediate restart of the projector after a power failure (breakdown), i.e. without passing
through the standby state, by recovering the previous settings (previous source,...).
This function can be disabled if undesired or inadequate for safety reasons, etc.
CAUTION: If the Automatic startup function is enabled one must be aware of the fact that it involves safety
precautions
Make sure that the projector (or the operators!) will not be affected by altered environmental conditions when
restarting at power resume.
Unless it is required, it is advised to leave this setting OFF.
In case of a power breakdown, this may introduce unwanted conditions at power resume : projector starting
up with high lamp temperature conditions, bad PC status, ...
How to enable/disable the Automatic startup?
1. Press MENU to activate the Tool bar

Aspect ratio
Aspect ratios
The standard aspect ratio used in broadcast television is the 4:3 ratio. However, most of the DVD sources use nowadays the wide
screen 16:9 or even the Cinemascope TM 2.35:1 aspect ratio.
Some DVD sources may even use the anamorphic 16:9 or anamorphic 2.35:1 to take advantage of the higher vertical resolution
offered by the 4:3 ratio. The “anamorphic” term means that the original wide screen image is squeezed in order to fit the 4:3 aspect
ratio.

Possible aspect ratio settings and their effect on different sources
We can conclude that the thumb rule for DVD projection is to always leave the projector in 4:3 format except when dealing with
anamorphic sources where the 16:9 setting allows the best reproduction.
The Auto function calculates an aspect ratio based on the information stored in the image files.
Selecting Auto in case of a Video source may shrink the image horizontally

Input balance
Introduction: Unbalanced color signals
When transporting signals, there is always a risk of deterioration of the information contained in the signals.
The alterations of the three color signals will happen independently i.e. the colors will end to be unbalanced,

The objective of input balancing
The objective in input balancing is to “set” the same black level and the same white level for the three colors of a particular input
source.
Black level setting : brightness
White level setting : contrast
The same absolute black and white level for the three colors allows the same reference for Brightness and contrast control of the
picture !
These two references also set the range in which the ADC will work for that particular source ( this explains also why each input
balance setting is linked to a particular source and thus saved in the image file).
How can it be done ?
To balance the three color signals of a particular source there are conditions; in fact we must know the black and the white level of
the source i.e. :
1.
the source in question must be able to generate a white signal, ideally a 100% white (background) full screen pattern
2.
the source in question must be able to generate a black signal, ideally a 100 % black (background) full screen pattern
B
A
Image 7-38
White balance : In the projector, we will set the contrast for each color until we get a 100% light output picture when projecting a
100% white image (image A)
Black balance : In the projector, we will set the brightness for each color until we get a 0% light output picture when projecting a
100% black image (image B).
The changeover from min to max is indicated by the apparition of bright spots also called “digital noise”
R59770079 BARCO ID H250/500 23/07/2007

7. Advanced
An alternative to a full screen White/black pattern is the standard gray scale pattern, the white bar will be used
for white balance and the black bar for black balance.

9. Adjust the blue white level (gain) on a minimal value
Note: this minimal value is not necessary , provided that the 2 other colors are not influencing too much the color to be adjusted,
in fact the aim is to minimize the effect of the two other colors since there is a risk of reaching too soon the transition
(bright spots) due to the contribution of these two other colors signals.

Introduction to Image files
Image files
An image file contains the main characteristics of a source (number of active lines,...). The projector’s memory contains a list of files
corresponding to the most common sources : standard files.
When a new source corresponds to one of these files, a custom file is created. The file is not automatically saved as a custom file.
The Save as... function allows to create and save a custom file.
The active file can always be edited in order to fit exactly the source specifications.
AutoImage creates automatically the best suited image file (custom file) for a new source. AutoImage is used
when :
- a new source is detected: AutoImage creates a new custom file which can always be edited if necessary.
- the AutoImage is launched via the button on the RCU, the projector’s OSD or from the desktop’s OSD
File notation
The notation of the image file happens as follows :

The AGC hold interval is the time interval in which the AGC is inhibited (AGC hold = no update in video amplitude measurement),
the advanced parameter allows to choose a short or long hold interval.
A long AGC hold interval eliminates Macrovision ® disturbances since the AGC is hold during a long interval, thus reducing the
probability to encounter a Macrovision ® pulse.

x, y coordinates of Red Green and Blue. These parameters are used by the DynaColor™ adjustment.
Image 7-77
The projector color gamut is defined by the triangle formed by the x, y coordinates of Red Green and Blue
Due to the tolerance on optical components the x, y values of this color gamut of each projector will differ.

Cleaning the lens
To minimize the possibility of damage to optical coatings, or scratches to lens surfaces, we have developed
recommendations for cleaning. FIRST, we recommend you try to remove any material from the lens by blowing
it off with clean, dry deionized air. DO NOT use any liquid to clean the lenses.
Necessary tools
Toraysee TM cloth (delivered together with the lens kit). Order number : R379058.
How to clean the lens ?
Proceed as follow :
1. Always wipe lenses with a CLEAN Toraysee TM cloth.
2. Always wipe lenses in a single direction.
Warning: Do not wipe back and forwards across the lens surface as this tends to grind dirt into the coating.
3. Do not leave cleaning cloth in either an open room or lab coat pocket, as doing so can contaminate the cloth.
4. If smears occur when cleaning lenses, replace the cloth. Smears are the first indication of a dirty cloth.
CAUTION: Do not use fabric softener when washing the cleaning cloth or softener sheets when drying the
cloth.
Do not use liquid cleaners on the cloth as doing so will contaminate the cloth.
Other lenses can also be cleaned safely with this Toraysee TM cloth.

10. Troubleshooting
Only when applicable : the air pressure value shown is the actually set environmental air pressure (note that
in case of extreme air pressures, this can be set via RS232, the default/factory value set being 1014 mbar)
For Barco certified service technicians only: For more information on possible hardware failures refer to the
Service Manual.
