Projector Overview
The J Series is a family of high resolution video/graphics 3 chip 1080p HD, SXGA+, WUXGA and WXGA
projectors, see Table 1.2 J Series Projectors for specific models. These projectors are based on next
generation DLP™ technology provided by Texas Instruments.
1.3.1 How the Projector Works
The projector accepts data/graphics and video input signals for projection onto front or rear screens. Light is
generated by a Xenon lamp, then modulated by three Digital Micro-mirror Device (DMD) panels that provide
digitized red, green or blue color information. Light from the ON pixels of each panel is reflected, converged
and then projected to the screen through a single front lens, where all pixels are perfectly superimposed as a
sharp full-color image.
1.3.2 User Interface Overview
The projector can be controlled using a menu system displayed on the image. The menu system can be
controlled by an IR remote, wired remote or through the built-in keypad. The LCD screen and built-in keypad
allow some functions to be controlled without the need of an OSD display, and provide a quickly accessible
interface to view error reporting. The functions on the OSD can also be controlled using the Christie Serial
Protocol, using a serial or Ethernet connection to the projector. The Web interface provides access to the menu
system as a Virtual OSD (On-screen display) and to features that maintain the software and settings.

ADVANTAGES
CONSIDERATIONS

Requires separate room or enclosure.
Usually good ambient light rejection.
Installation cost is usually higher.
Requires less space behind screen than other
rear screen installations.
More involved to perform setup.
2.2.3 Front Screen Installations
In front screen installations, the projector and audience are positioned in front of the screen, which can be flat
or curved.
Flat screens offer a gain of about 1.0 with a viewing angle just less than 180 degrees. This type of screen
reflects incident light equally in all directions so the audience can see the display from various angles.
Curved screens have a gain greater than 1.0 with a viewing angle much less than 180 degrees. This type of
screen does not reflect incident light equally in all directions; instead it is concentrated in a viewing cone. The
audience sitting within the viewing cone area will see a brighter image than those sitting just outside the area.
2.2.4 Rear Screen Installations
There are two basic types of rear screens:
• Diffused: A diffused screen has a surface which spreads the light that strikes it. Purely diffused screens have
a gain of less than 1.0. The advantage of the diffused screen is its wide viewing angle, similar to that of a flat
screen for front screen projection. This type of screen is suitable when a wide viewing angle is required but
there is low ambient room lightening.
• Optical: Optical screens take light from the projector and redirects it to increase the light intensity at the
front of the screen and reduce it in other areas. A viewing cone, similar to that of a curved front screen
installation is created. This type of screen is better suited for brightly lit rooms where the audience is situated
within the viewing cone.
2.2.5 Screen Size
Choose a screen size appropriate for your lens and application. If the projector will be used to display text
information, the image size must allow the audience to recognize all text clearly. The eye sees a letter clearly if
eye-to-text distance is less than 150 times the height of the letter. Small text located too far from the eye will be
illegible at a distance no matter how sharply and clearly it is displayed.
To fill a screen with an image, the aspect ratio of the screen should be equal to the aspect ratio of the image
(expressed as the ratio of its width to its height). Standard video from a VCR has a 4:3 or 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
For example, to display a VCR output with a 4:3 aspect ratio onto a 10-foot (3m) high screen, the width of the
screen must be at least 13.3 feet (4m).

020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
2-9
Section 2: Installation and Setup
2.2.6 Ambient Lighting
The high brightness of this projector is well suited for locations where ambient lighting might be considered
less than ideal. A typical room with ceiling lights and windows rarely requires special attention. Contrast ratio
in your images will be reduced if stray light directly strikes the screen. For example, when a shaft of light from
a window or floodlight falls on the image. Images may appear washed out and less vibrant. Avoid or eliminate
stray light sources directed at the screen.
2.2.7 Ventilation
The projector vents and louvers provide ventilation, both for intake and
exhaust. Never block or cover these openings. Do not install the
projector near a radiator or heat register, or within an enclosure. To
ensure adequate airflow around the projector, allow free air exchange to
the projector with a minimum clearance of 25cm (10-inch) on the left,
right and rear sides of the projector from any walls or other
obstructions. Never obstruct the air exchange to the projector.
2.2.8 Other Considerations
Other considerations and tips to improve your installation:
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 40°C (104°F). Keep the projector away from heating and/
or air conditioning vents. Changes in temperature may cause drifts in the projector circuitry, which may
affect performance.
• Keep the projector away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy, such as motors and transformers,
slide projectors, speakers, power amplifiers, elevators, etc.
• Use a screen size appropriate for the venue but not larger than required. Installing a large screen in a small
room is similar to watching television at a close range; too large a screen can overpower a room and interfere
with the overall effect. As a rule, be no closer than 1.5 times the width of the screen.
2.3
Projector Position
2.3.1 Throw Distance
Throw distance is the distance measured from the front feet of the projector to the screen. This calculation
determines if there is enough room to install your projector with a desired screen size and if the image will be
of the right size for your screen.
To estimate the throw distance take the horizontal width of the screen and multiply it by the lens throw ratio.
The result determines approximately the distance the projector should be positioned from the screen to project
a focused image large enough to fill the screen. For example, using a 0.73:1 lens, throw distance would roughly
be 0.73 x screen width.
2-10
J Series 2.0, 2.4 and 3.0 kW User Manual
020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
Section 2: Installation and Setup
IMPORTANT! Use the lens and screen size to calculate the precise throw distance using the lens throw
calculator provided in the Dealer Section of the Christie Website, or use the tables provided
in 020-100221-XX. Due to lens manufacturing tolerances for lens focal length, actual throw
distance can vary ±5% between lenses with the same nominal throw ratio.
2.3.2 Vertical and horizontal position
The correct vertical and horizontal position of the projector in relation to the screen depends on the lens type
and the screen size. Ideally, the projector should be positioned perpendicular to the screen. This way, the image
will appear rectangular instead of keystoned (trapezoidal).
The vertical position of the image can be offset (that is moved above or below the optical axis) by adjusting the
motorized lens mount. The amount of vertical offset available depends on the type of lens installed in the
projector and can be limited if horizontal offset has been applied. Vertical offset can be expressed as the
percent of half the image height or the number of pixels of shift from lens center. See Figure 2-1 Vertical
Offset Examples for illustrated examples of vertical offset.
Table 2.1, Table 2.2 and Table 2.3 specify the vertical offset of each type of lens.

The horizontal position of the image can also be offset; that is moved to the left or right of optical center, by
adjusting the motorized lens mount. The amount of horizontal offset available depends on the lens installed and
if the image has already been vertically offset. Horizontal offset can be expressed as the percent of half the
image width or the number of pixels of shift to one side of lens center. Table 2.4, Table 2.5 and Table 2.6 each
show the horizontal offset of a lens type. See Figure 2-2 Horizontal Offset Examples.

Lifting, Hoisting, and Stacking
For any new installation, you will likely have to safety lift or hoist the projector into place. Keep in mind the
following guidelines for safety.
2.4.1 Lifting Guidelines
All models include handles for convenient hand transport only; such as when a projector is lifted from a
shipping container to a table.
Note the following:
• The handles are intended to support the weight of 1 projector only.
• The handles are intended to support a projector for a brief time only.
• The handles are not safety points; nor points from which to hoist or suspend the projector.
The handles cannot support more than 1 projector. Do not use handles for
extended time periods. Do not use the handles as safety points, or as points
from which to suspend or hoist the projector.
Maximum stack = 3 projectors. Stack first, then hoist.

2.4.3 Hoisting Procedure
This procedure applies to one or more projectors. To hoist a stack, first
stack 2 or 3 projectors according to the stacking procedure included in this
manual. Never stack or hoist more than 3 projectors together.
1. Remove the projection lens to prevent possible damage during hoisting.
See 5.2 Replacing the Projection Lens.
2. If the projector is inverted, retract the adjustable feet to prevent the
hoisting hardware from getting caught.
3. Attach a safety cable to each of the 2 eyebolts mounted on the bottom
of the projector.
NOTE: Add eyebolts (2) if non-inverted. When hoisting a noninverted projector or stack, add 2 safety eyebolts in the front and rear
threaded holes provided on the top of the projector. Ensure the eyebolts
have an adequate rating for the load. Secure safety cabling to both
eyebolts.
Always use at least 2 safety cables for any
hoisting.
Attach safety cables to the 2 eyebolts.
4. Attach the rigging hardware by securing your rigging
components to the appropriate rigging points. There are 8
sliding points provided on the bottom. Tighten the nut at
each required location to prevent sliding.
NOTES: 1) Use at least 4 rigging points for all hoisting.
2) Use straps, clamps or cabling with load capacity
adequate for the total projector weight. See Section
Section 7: Specifications. 3) Do not join the rigging
straps or cables to a common point, keep separated as
shown.
• Maximum stack = 3 projectors
• Stack first, then hoist
2.4.4 Stacking Procedure
NOTE: Installation requires at least 2 people.
Projectors can be stacked in either the upright or inverted position. Do not mix orientations (i.e., inverted with
upright) in a stack. Secure a maximum of 3 projectors with the stacking mounts as described below.
Do not stack more than 3 projectors. Never attempt to manually carry a stack.
Christie stacking hardware required. The top projector could slide off and
cause injury or death.

Section 2: Installation and Setup
1. Position the projectors.
• Place each projector to be stacked on a secure
table or cart.
• Place 1 projector on its side to access its adjustable feet, and stacking legs.
• Orient the other projector in either upright or
inverted position as required (remember, each
projector in a stack must be in the same orientation).
2. Fully retract each foot (4) as far as possible by
turning them clockwise.
• If upright, retract the feet on top projector.
• If inverted, retract the feet on bottom projector
3. Extend the stacking legs (3) by turning them so that
at least 1 inch of thread is visible on each. This clearance
accommodates the up-or-down movement for aligning the
images from the stacked projectors. Ensure that you extend all
3 legs equally so they are level.
• If upright, extend legs on top projector (shown)
• If inverted, extend legs on bottom projector
IMPORTANT! Extend stacking legs equally, by at least 1 inch.
4. On the rear stacking legs, loosen the nuts so the
legs have some lateral movement for easier
alignment with the stacking mounts on the
other projector.
• If upright, release on top projector
• If inverted, release on bottom projector

Section 2: Installation and Setup
5. The 3 safety pins must be removed from the stacking mounts so that
the stacking legs can fit into the mounts.
• If upright, remove the pins from the mounts on the bottom projector
• If inverted, remove the 3 safety pins from the mounts on the top projector
6. With 1 person on each side, lift the top projector on to the bottom
projector, aligning all 3 stacking points between projectors. The legs
(4) should fit inside the stacking mounts.
Minimum of 2 people required.
7. On each stacking mount, turn the adjusting wheel slightly until the
hole in the top portion of the mount lines up with the hole in the stacking leg.
NOTE: You can increase leverage by using a screwdriver in the holes.
8. At each of the 3 stacking points, insert the safety pin fully through the holes in the stacking mounts and
stacking legs. Ensure that each pin is fully inserted to engage the safety lock and secure the projectors
together. Failure to engage the safety lock could cause the projectors to separate and result in injury or death.
Critical Safety Procedure. Failure to engage the safety lock could cause the
projectors to separate and result in injury or death.
9. Before hoisting, firmly tighten the nuts on the 2 rear stacking legs. If you are ready to align the projectors
to one another, leave these nuts slightly loose until after the alignment.
10. Repeat steps 1–9 if stacking a third projector.
Never stack more than 3 projectors.

2.4.5 Alignment Procedure
Stacked projectors must be correctly aligned to one another so that the resulting display is optimized and as
sharp as possible. If you are also hoisting the stack, hoist the stack into place first and then align. Lock all
stacking hardware into place to maintain your alignment.
IMPORTANT! Ensure the stacking legs are extended at least 1 inch and are slightly loosened.
Before You Begin
• Always align to the fixed projector. In floor-mount or table-mount (i.e., non-hoisted) stacks, you will align to
the bottom projector as shown in drawings below. In hoisted stacks, align to the top projector.
• Leg nuts must be loosened before alignment; otherwise the stacking mounts will not turn and allow
movement of the projector.
Alignment Procedure:
1. Position the fixed projector (first) image as desired and align the other image(s) to it as described below.
2. Display the Grid Test Pattern. To distinguish each image, enable “Red” for 1 display and “Green” for the
other. See 3.6 Image Settings Menu if you need help enabling colors.
3. Focus the images for both projectors.
4. Adjust the Zoom and Offset on the top projector to precisely move its test pattern display on to the bottom
test pattern. When properly aligned, all red/green grid lines in the combined image will turn yellow.
• If all lines are well aligned, skip to Step 6. b. to lock all stacking mounts.
• If alignment needs fine adjustment, proceed with the next step.
5. Turn the 2 rear stacking mount wheels to move the top
projector as necessary to achieve well-aligned center lines. Use
a screwdriver in the holes around the rim of each adjusting
wheel for better leverage and control.
How to move the image. Turn independently; each stacking
mount acts as a pivot point for the opposite edge of the display.
For example:
• Turn the right mount to tilt the left portion of the image up or
down
• Turn the left mount to tilt the right portion of the image up or
down
• Turn the mounts together to raise or lower the top image like
an offset adjustment, or turn the front stacker
If the center lines form an “X”. This indicates that the
projectors (and images) are slightly tilted in relation to
one another. Turn 1 mount to raise 1 side, and/or turn the
other mount to lower the other side.
If the center lines are parallel, but misaligned:
• If center lines are out by the same amount from top and
bottom, use lens offsets (on top projector) to bring the
center lines into alignment.

2-19
Section 2: Installation and Setup
• If center lines are parallel, but others are not, turn the front stacking mount wheel to bring the center lines
into alignment.
6. Align the edges of the grid with center lines aligned:
a. Adjust zoom (top projector) to align the edges of its image with the other image.
b. Adjust focus. When aligned, all lines from the combined red/green grids will be yellow.
7. Secure all stacking wheels and leg nuts:
Critical Safety Procedure.
• Turn all 3 stacking wheels until they are firmly secure against the rest of
the stacking mount.
• Secure both 2 rear leg nuts against the bottom of the projector.
8. Repeat Steps 1 to 7 if stacking a third projector.
2.4.6 Mounting
There are several methods for mounting the projector. Depending on your chosen
installation, one method may be more suitable than another. In typical front and rear screen installations the
projector can be mounted to a secure and level surface, such as a table or cart. Carts are useful when the
projector has to be moved during a presentation or from site to site. It is recommended you lock the wheels on
a cart, when it is in position, to prevent someone from accidentally moving it during a presentation.
Ceiling Mount
The projector can be inverted and suspended from the ceiling using a specially designed ceiling mount 104104001-XX. This mounting is recommended for fixed installations and for those that want the projector out of
plain view or have limited amount of space for the projector and audience.
Use only the Christie approved ceiling mount kit designed for your projector.
See the installation instructions and safety guidelines provided in the kit.
2.4.7 Adjusting Projector Height/Tilt
Adjusting Height
You can modify the height of the projector to remedy a slightly
uneven mounting surface by adjusting the four feet threaded into
the bottom chassis. Turn each foot clock-wise or counterclockwise until the projector is level on all sides.
Tilting the Projector
In the landscape orientation, the projector can be rotated to any
angle (roll/pitch) and tilted to any vertical angle (i.e., you can tilt
the face of the projector up or down as much as desired for your
installation). For maximum lamp life, side-to-side tilt must not
exceed 15 degrees. Tilt angles including portrait mode are allowed
as shown.

Section 2: Installation and Setup
2.4.8 Basic Optical Alignment
Only perform image alignment on-ce the projector is fully assembled and powered up in its final location.
Basic image alignment ensures the image reflected from the DMDs is parallel to and well-centered with the
lens and screen. This initial optical alignment is the foundation for optimizing images on the screen and must
be completed before final boresight adjustments. Before beginning ensure the projector is properly positioned
relative to the screen.
Basic Optical Alignment Procedure
1. Display a test pattern: Appropriate for analyzing image focus and geometry, such as the “framing” test
pattern showing the cross-hair centered across the image. Press the TEST key on the remote keypad or use
the built-in keypad and press the soft key that displays Test on the LCD display.
2. Course focus: Do a quick preliminary focus and (if available) zoom adjustment with the primary lens. Do
not worry about consistency across the image at this point, just center focus. It is good practice to have
zoom adjustment color and focus adjustment color in the center of its range.
3. Center the image in the lens: Holding a piece of paper at the lens surface, adjust offsets as necessary until
the image is centered within the lens perimeter. A full white field works best for this.
4. If necessary, center the image on the screen: If the projector is mounted off center to the screen axis,
then offset the lens as much as required. Aim the projector over slightly towards the center of the screen,
but use caution when doing so, as too much tilt will cause excessive keystone distortion. Lens offset will
not.
5. Re-check side-to-side leveling: With the framing pattern on screen, double-check projector leveling so
the top edge of the image is parallel to the top edge of the screen.
6. Throw Distance: Ensure the projector is positioned in the throw distance range for the particular lens.
Folded Optics
In rear screen applications where space behind the projector is limited, a mirror may be used to fold the optical
path. The position of the projector and mirror must be accurately set - if considering this type of installation
call your dealer for assistance.

Boresight Alignment Procedure for CT Lens Mount
To adjust the boresight on a J Series projector equipped with a CT lens mount, see the Boresight Adjustment
Procedure instruction sheet found on the Christie website P/N: 013-100141-04.
Boresight Alignment Procedure for ILS Lens Mount
1. Display the Boresight Test Pattern by pressing the TEST key on the remote keypad or use the built-in
keypad and press the soft key that displays Test on the LCD display, then UP ARROW KEY to cycle to
Boresight, then Enter.
2. Focus the image on cross-hair pattern I. Evaluate the focus on cross-hair image II and III. If all 3 images
are in focus, no further action is required. If boresight is required see step 3.
3. If boresight is required, refer to Figure 2-3 Cross-Hair Pattern to understand how the adjustment screws
on the lens mount affect the corresponding cross-hairs on the test pattern.
NOTE: The capscrew may be under a plastic cap, remove and retain before adjusting.
4. Loosen the 3 locking setscrews on the lens mount, see Figure 2-4 Screw Locations.
NOTE: The setscrews must be backed out several turns to avoid contact with the inner lens mount plate.
FIGURE 2-3 CROSS-HAIR PATTERN
FIGURE 2-4 SCREW LOCATIONS
5. Fine tune the focus of cross-hair pattern I by adjusting the appropriate capscrew, see Figure 2-4 Screw
Locations. Adjust until the cross-hair image is in focus with minimal flare.

Section 2: Installation and Setup
6. Adjust cross-hair pattern II, by adjusting the appropriate capscrew, see Figure 2-4 Screw Locations. Adjust
until the cross-hair image is in focus with minimal flare.
7. Adjust cross-hair pattern III, by adjusting the appropriate capscrew, see Figure 2-4 Screw Locations.
Adjust until the cross-hair image is in focus with minimal flare.
8. Repeat step 5, 6, and 7 as required until all 3 cross-hair patterns are in equal sharp focus. If the boresight is
acceptable, see step 11. If the boresight does not appear to be converging to an acceptable level of image
quality or if the lens will not focus over the correct range of throw distances, then the boresight requires
coarse adjustment, see step 9.
9. The original factory boresight can be recovered approximately by positioning the 3 setscrews, see Figure
2-4 Screw Locations. Position the setscrews flush with the front face of the lens mount plate and in contact
with the inner lens mount plate. This may require adjusting both setscrews and capscrews.
10. If further action is required. Repeat #2.
11. Lock the setscrews so they do not shift, and re-check the boresight quality.

Connect Communications
2.5.1 Remote Keypads
NOTE: The response to a wired keypad must be enabled in the Communications menu. See Section 4 Web
User Interface for more information.
To control the projector, direct the IR remote towards the display screen or the projector IR sensors.
Alternatively, connect a wired (tethered) version of the remote to the XLR connector labeled as Wired
Keypad on the input panel.
As an alternative to the projector keypad or remote, you may wish to communicate using a PC or other
controller. Such a device sends commands and receives feedback via serial links (RS-232 and RS-422), or
Ethernet communications. See the Serial Command document provided in the Dealer Section of the Christie
Website, 020-100224-XX.
2.5.2 Serial Port Connections
RS-232 and RS-422 serial ports are both available on the projector: You can connect a device with a serial
interface, such as a computer to either of these connectors (not both) and control the projector remotely by
entering specific serial communication commands. See 3.9.7Communications - Submenu and the Serial
Command document provided in the Dealer Section of the Christie Website, 020-100224-XX.
2.5.3 Connect RS-232
Two nine-pin D-sub connectors, labeled RS-232 IN and RS-232 OUT on the input panel, are dedicated to serial
communication. Using the appropriate serial communication cables, connect the controlling source, such as a
personal computer to the RS-232 IN connector. Set the projector baud rate to match that of the computer. See
Section 3 Operation for details on changing the baud rate.

2.5.6 Connect Multiple Projectors
RS-232 Network: To connect multiple projectors in a network with serial communication:
1. Connect the controller source to the RS-232 IN connector of the first projector in the network.
2. Use another serial communication cable to connect one end to the RS-232 OUT connector and the other
end to the RS-232 IN connector of the next projector.
3. Continue this pattern of connection with all projectors in the network.
NOTE: The last projector in the network will only have a connection to the RS-232 IN connector.
Mixed Network: To control multiple projectors with a computer/controller having an RS-422 interface:
1. Set them all to the same baud rate as your RS-422 controller.
NOTE: You must enable this combination of RS-422 and RS-232 in the Communications menu. Set the
“Network Routing” option to “RS-232 and RS-422 Joined”, see Section 4 Web User Interface.
2. Chain the projectors together by connecting an RS-232 OUT (Null Cable) of the first projector (already
connected to the computer/controller) through the RS-422 port straight thru to an RS-232 IN on the next
projector in the chain. Continue connecting projectors in this manner until the last projector in the chain, so
that only the last projector has one unused port RS-232 OUT.

020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
Section 2: Installation and Setup
Communication parameters, such as baud rate, must be set to match the particular controller device, before
connecting as a network. See the documentation that came with your controller device to determine the proper
baud rate. See Section 3 Operation for help changing the projector baud rate. To communicate to all projectors,
set the Network Routing to RS-232 and RS-422 Joined.
NOTE: Connect only high quality, properly wired serial communication cables. Each RS-232 communication
cable should be no more than 50 feet in length.
Ethernet Network Setup: To add projectors to an Ethernet network, use standard CAT5 cables to connect
each projector Ethernet port to a hub on the network. A controller or PC must also be connected to the hub.
NOTE: A wireless router can be used to communicate to the projectors via 802.11b/g.
Setting the Projector IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway: See 3.7 Optical Aperture.
Changing the Port Number: On some Ethernet networks, firewall restrictions may require that the port
number of the projector be changed from the default of 3002. If so, enter a new port number in the Ethernet
Settings menu or include the new port number.
2.5.7 Separate Networks
By default, communications which originate from one type of serial controller—RS-232 vs. RS-422 vs.
Ethernet—stay on the corresponding network path. A “separate” setting indicates this separation for Network
Routing in the Communications menu, see Section 4 Web User Interface. If you are using an RS-422
controller, for example, it will communicate only with the projector to which it is connected unless you change
this setting to either RS-232 and RS-422 Joined or All Joined.

2.5.8 Communicate to all Ports
To relay all messages to all ports—RS-232, RS-422, and Ethernet—set the Network Routing option in the
Communications menu for each projector to All Joined, see Section 4 Web User Interface. This configuration
is useful if you are using a non-RS-232 controller with the RS-232 linking available between these projectors.
For example, you may want to use both an RS-422 compatible controller and an Ethernet connected PC for
working with a network of projectors linked via their RS-232 IN/OUT ports.
• To isolate just RS-422 communications, select RS-232 and Ethernet Joined. Only projector 1 will respond
to the RS-422 controller.
• To isolate just Ethernet communications, select RS-232 and RS-422 Joined. Only projector 1 will respond
via Ethernet.
2.5.9 System Integration - GPIO Connector
The GPIO connector located on the input panel provides a flexible method of interfacing a wide range of
external I/O devices to the projector. There are 7 GPIO pins available on the 9pin D-Sub GPIO connector,
which are configurable via RS-232 commands. The other two pins are reserved for ground and power - see
table below for pin identification.
NOTE: The serial cable required for connecting the external device to the projector’s GPIO connector, must
be compatible with the external device.

an input if you want the projector to respond to something the device does and as an output if you want the
external device to respond to an action taken by the projector. For example, configure the pin as an output if
you want the lighting in a room to automatically dim when the projector is turned on.
By using the GIO command, you can also set the state of each output pin as high or low. By default, the state of
each pin is high. The voltage applied to pins in the high state is +3.3 V.
A low state (or value of 0) will be read on an input pin if the
circuit attached to the pin is open. A high state (or value of 1)
will be read on an input pin if the circuit attached to the pin is
shorted to ground. This corresponds to a switch closing event.
Pin
Open (0 or L)
Pin
Closed (1 or H)
Example. Turn room lighting on when the projector is turned
off (Assumes a control/automation unit is configured to turn the lights on when pin 2 of its input goes high).
(GIO+CNFG “OOOIIII”)
Set pin #2, 3 and 4 configuration to output and pin 6, 7, 8 and 9 to input
(GIO+STAT “HLXXXXX”)
Set pin #2 to high, pin 3 to low and the state of all other pins unchanged
(GIO+STAT)
Request the state of all pins
(GIO+STAT “HLLHLLH”)
Reply of pin states - H means pin is high, L means pin is low
(GIO+CNFG)
Request the configuration of all pins
(GIO+CNFG “IIIOOOO”)
Reply of pin configurations - pins 2, 3 and 4 are Inputs, pins 6, 7, 8 and 9 are Outputs
NOTE: The strings in the commands refer to pins 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 in order from left to right.

Connect Sources
Sources are connected to the input panel located at the back of the projector. The Input Panel allows one image
processor board and up to 4 input cards to be inserted. The input cards are hot swappable, meaning they may be
plugged in and out while the projector is active. The image processor should only be replaced when the
projector is off or when it is in standby mode.
There are seven option input cards available:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
High-Definition Multimedia Interface/Twin HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
Analog BNC
Dual 3G/HD/SD-SDI (Serial Digital Interface)
Dual Link DVI
Video Decoder
DMX512 Interface
Twin DisplayPort Input
These cards slide into the option slots located at the rear of the projector and can be used in any slot. One or
more of the option slots may be used with any combination of option cards, including multiples of the same
card type. There may be up to 2 active inputs displayed at any time, either from one card or from 2 cards.
These 2 inputs can be routed to outputs or to the main or PIP video image.
2.7.1 LEDs
LEDs are located on the faceplate of each input card and indicate the following:
• Power ON - Green
• Signal Valid - Green
• Signal Invalid - OFF
2.7.2 Twin HDMI Input Card
This card accepts one or two HDMI inputs, and can route one or both inputs to the card’s outputs. Any input
from any card can be looped out of this card. The output label ‘1-OUT’ loops out the main image being
displayed on the projector. The output labelled ‘2-OUT’ loops out the image displayed in the picture in picture
(PIP). Any input from any optional input card can be looped out of this card. There are 5 LEDs on the module
faceplate. The PWR on the left side indicates power is applied, and that the card is initialized. The LEDs to the
right side of the corresponding connectors indicate that a valid signal is detected. In the case of the output, the
LED indicates a signal is currently being looped out.

Section 2: Installation and Setup
2.7.3 Analog BNC Input Card
This card accepts several types of sync modes. In 5-wire sync mode all 5 BNC connectors are used. If H and V
connectors are swapped, this card will still operate normally. An analog graphic source such as a VGA from a
PC can be connected. The card can operate in 4-wire sync mode, which accommodates 4-wire RGBC sources.
The composite sync cable can be connected to either the H/C BNC or the V BNC. The card supports 3-wire
RGB or YPbPr sync modes, sometimes called sync-on-Green (SOG). In this mode the H/C and V connectors
are not used. The sync is connected to the Green/Y BNC connector. This card offers no loop out capability.
There are 2 LED’s on the module faceplate. PWR indicates power has been applied and the card is initialized,
signal indicates a valid signal has been detected.
2.7.4 Dual 3G/HD/SD-SDI Input Card
This card accepts both standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) serial-digital-interface (SDI) signals
from 1 of 2 standard-definition (SD) or high-definition (HD) 3GHz SDI sources. Both single-link HD and
dual-link HD signals are accepted. The card has two SD/HD-SDI outputs, each of which is “loop through” for
its respective input. There are 3 LEDs on the module faceplate. PWR indicates power has been applied and the
card is initialized, and the two signal LEDs indicate a valid signal has been detected on the respective input.
2.7.5 Dual Link DVI Input Card
This card accepts a single DVI signal with or without High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)
video signal over a DVI-I connector and analog video signals over the DVI-I or 15-pin VGA connector. The
module can simultaneously support a digital signal on the DVI input and an analog signal on the VGA port,
however it does not support 2 analog signals at the same time. There are 4 LEDs on the module faceplate. PWR
indicates power is applied and the card is initialized, and the other 3 on the right side of the corresponding
connectors indicate that a valid signal has been detected.

Section 2: Installation and Setup
2.7.6 Video Decoder Input Card
This card accepts and decodes standard definition (SD) video. This includes CVBS (composite video), SVideo, and component sources. This card supports as many as 6 video signals, four of them on BNC
connectors and two on 4-pin mini-DIN connectors. Each mini-DIN connector accepts 1 S-Video signal. The
first BNC accepts composite video (only), while the remaining three BNC’s can be grouped to allow one of the
following combinations:
• 3 CVBS sources on 4, 5 and 6
• 1 CVBS source, 1 S-Video source: Luma (Y) connected to 4(Sy) and Chroma (C) connected to 6 (Sc)
• 1 YPbPr source: component signal on 4 (Pr), 5 (Y) and 6 (Pb)
The video decoder input card has 8 LED indicators. The PWR LED indicates that the module is installed
properly, and has been successfully configured. The YPbPr LED indicates that a valid component signal has
been detected on inputs 4, 5, and 6 (Component input grouping must also be selected in the projector menu, see
Section 3 Operation). The remaining LEDs are each associated with one of the inputs, and indicate a valid
signal has been detected on that input.
2.7.7 DMXC Interface Card
The DMXC card is a communication interface which allows the projector to be controlled using the standard
E1.11 USITT DMX512-A protocol (DMX512-A 2008). DMX-512 is a serial protocol which is used for
controlling lighting and staging equipment from a lighting console or similar host device. ArtNET (defined by
Artistic License's Art-Net II Specification) is an Ethernet implementation of the DMX protocol. The J Series
projector supports the DMX protocol through 2 data input interfaces, 1) a DMX card and 2) ArtNET through
the Ethernet connector.
The DMXC card is not an input interface for video signals, but it plugs into a standard input card option slot.
The card can always be active, even when the projector is in standby mode. Only one DMXC card will be
allowed per system. If more than one card is installed, only the first card will be activated.
The card has two 5-pin XLR connectors - 1 (input) male and 1 (output) female. There are 2 LEDs on the
faceplate of the card: The green power LED which is on when the card is powered, and the green termination
LED which is on when termination is enabled.
Input termination (2 Watt, 120 Ohm) is required on the last DMXC card in a loop through configuration (i.e.
only on the last projector). Termination may be either hardware (by plugging in a termination dongle, etc) or
may be switched by software, but should not be both. Software termination is only in place when the projector
has AC applied. If there are cases where the network is required to be terminated without AC applied to the last
projector, then a hardware terminator should be used.
See Section 3 Operation for information about setting up the ArtNET and DMX interfaces.

2.7.8 Twin DisplayPort Input Card
The Twin DisplayPort Input card accepts Display Port 1.1a inputs from one or two DisplayPort sources. The
card has two DisplayPort outputs, each of which is loop through for its respective input (loop through of
encrypted content is not supported). Five LEDs are on the card faceplate. The PWR on the left side indicates
power is applied and the card is initialized. The LEDs on the right side of the corresponding connectors
indicate a valid signal is detected. In the case of the output, the LED indicates a signal is currently being looped
out.

3 Operation
This section describes the controls and switches used for basic projector operation once it is properly installed,
aligned and configured by a Christie accredited service technician.
See the Safety Warnings and Guidelines in 1.4 Safety Warnings and Guidelines.
3.1
How to Use the Remote Keypad or Built-In Keypad
The projector is typically controlled using one of the following keypads:
• Remote Keypad: For wired or wireless control up to 25 feet (8 m) away (includes cable for use as a wired
remote). The remote keypad controls the projector by way of wireless communications from a batterypowered infrared (IR) transmitter. Use the remote keypad the same way you would use a remote keypad
supplied with a TV or VCR. When pressing a function key, direct the keypad toward the projector’s front or
rear IR sensor. One of the two IR sensors on the projector will detect the signal and relay the commands for
internal processing. A laser pointer is built into the remote keypad. See Figure 3-1 Remote Keypad.
• Built-in Keypad: Located at the side of the projector, see Figure 3-2 Built-In Keypad.
While each of the keypads provides complete control of the projector, they differ slightly in their arrangement
of keys and in what functions can be accessed directly with a key press rather than requiring use of the menu
system. You may find one keypad more convenient than another for your specific installation and application.
3.1.1 Guide to Keypads
Keep these guidelines (common to both keypads) in mind:
• Press keys one-at-a-time; there are no simultaneous key combinations required.
NOTE: Use POWER, SHUTTER, and OSD FUNCTIONS by doing one of the following: “press-and-hold” (2
seconds) or press twice quickly, followed by pressing either the UP ARROW KEY to switch on or the DOWN
ARROW KEY to switch off once. See Figure 3-1 Remote Keypad.
• Arrow keys are held down for continuous adjustment/movement in the related key direction.
NOTE: In serial networks, pause briefly between adjustments to make sure that more distant projectors can
“keep up” with the commands. If you press a key while the projector is still responding to the previous
action, such as during power-up, the second key press may not take effect.
See Figure 3-1 Remote Keypad for the description of the keys provided for the remote keypad.
Laser radiation is emitted from the laser diode in the remote. DO NOT look
directly into the beam of the laser.

Power ON/OFF
Press and hold POWER for two seconds or press twice quickly to action the projector ON or OFF. Or press and
release POWER followed immediately by the UP ARROW KEY (ON) or DOWN ARROW KEY (OFF) to
guarantee the correct action (useful if you are unsure of the present state).
NOTES: 1) After powering down, the lamp cooling fan remains on for approximately five minutes to cool the
lamp. 2) Avoid turning the projector back on until it has been off for a few minutes. Hot re-strikes of the lamp
will reduce lamp life and may cause the lamp to explode.
Test
Steps forward through all internal test patterns. After stepping past the last test pattern, you will return to
current input.
Press TEST and then cycle by using the UP ARROW KEY and DOWN ARROW KEY arrow keys, to cycle in either
direction through the test patterns. Press EXIT to return to the current input.
Auto
Initiates an automated process in which the projector optimizes critical display parameters such as size,
position, pixel tracking, etc., for the current source. These parameters are listed in the following table. An auto
setup can save time in perfecting a display and you can modify the adjustments as desired.
NOTE: You must have an unlocked channel present to use Auto Setup.

The best auto setup will be obtained under the following conditions:
• Input levels, it is best to have an image with saturated (very bright) colors.
• Phase, high contrast edges are needed.
To determine active window size:
• Video images should have whites and blacks in the image.
• Wide range video images should have content (including white) that extends to all edges of the image.
See 3.4 Adjusting the Image for further details about the Auto Setup function.
Channel
Select a specific source setup (channel) defined and stored in projector memory. Once you enter a two-digit
channel number (or, if there is a list displayed, highlight it and press ENTER), the display will automatically
change and update according to the numerous setup parameters defined for that channel.
NOTES: 1) A new channel is automatically created if you adjust an image from a new source. 2) CHANNEL
key behavior during a presentation depends on whether or not Display Channel List is enabled in the Menu
Preferences menu. You can choose to use a scrolling list of channels when you press CHANNEL, or you may
prefer to enter the desired channel number “blind”, i.e., without on-screen feedback.
Slot 1, 2, 3, 4
Press to display the next active input on the card in the slot.

Displays all inputs in all slots, both active and inactive. Scroll through the list to select an input for the main
image. Press Input again to show the list and select the picture-in-picture (PIP) image.
PIP
Turns picture-in-picture ON or OFF.
Swap
Swaps the main and PIP images.
Contrast
Changes the level of peak white in your images. Use LEFT/RIGHT ARROW KEY until you reach the desired level
of contrast—for best results, start low and increase so that whites remain bright but are not distorted or tinted
and that light areas do not become fully white (i.e., “crushed”). Conversely, low contrast causes dim images.

Section 3: Operation
Bright
Increases or decreases the black level in the image. Use LEFT/RIGHT ARROW KEY until you reach the desired
level of brightness. For best results, start high and decrease so that dark areas do not become fully black (i.e.,
“crushed”). Conversely, overly high brightness changes black to dark grey, causing washed-out images.
Gamma
Determines how grey shades are displayed between minimum input (black) and maximum input (white) for a
given amount of signal. The proper setting helps maintain optimized blacks and whites while ensuring a
smooth transition for the “in-between” values utilized in greys. Unlike brightness and contrast controls, the
overall tone of an image can be lightened or darkened without changing the two extremes and your images will
be more vibrant yet with good detail in dark areas when using the Gamma control.
The nominal setting for Gamma Correction of 0 is correct for most signals and conditions. If excess ambient
light washes out the image and it becomes difficult or impossible to see details in dark areas, increase the
gamma correction setting to compensate.
Number Keys
Press 1 to 9 to enter a value in a text box or to select a menu item.
10+
Press 0 before pressing another number to enter a number greater than 9, e.g. press 0 then 2 to enter the
number 12 as a menu selection.
NOTE: When entering numbers in a text field, this button acts as 0.
Help
Press HELP to display context-sensitive help. Press HELP again to toggle the help window OFF.
Menu
Press MENU to enter or exit the projector menu system.
OSD (On-Screen Display)
Press OSD then the DOWN ARROW to hide the projector’s menu system during use. To see the menus again,
do one of the following:
• Press and hold OSD for two seconds.
• Press and release OSD followed immediately by UP ARROW.
• Press OSD, OSD.
Invisible menus are fully functional, enabling “hidden” access to numbered features and image adjustments by
entering the corresponding sequence of key presses on the keypad.
NOTE: With OSD turned ON, you can still hide error messages and slide bars by disabling these options in
the Menu Preferences menu.
Shutter
Press and hold SHUTTER for two seconds to toggle the internal mechanical shutter blade closed or open with a
single keystroke. Or press and release SHUTTER followed immediately by UP ARROW KEY (closed) or DOWN
ARROW KEY (open) to guarantee the correct state (useful if you are unsure of the present state). Alternatively,
press SHUTTER, SHUTTER to toggle from the present on/off state.

Press PROJ to access a specific projector within a group of projectors or to confirm if the local projector is
listening. The number in the “Enter Number” window indicates which projector is currently listening to
commands, and will match the projector number that has been defined in the Menu Preferences menu.
The PROJ check box (read-only) shows whether or not the projector physically connected to a keypad is
listening to commands from that keypad. A check mark means that connected projector is listening; if there is
no check mark, you are communicating with a different projector.
To control a specific projector with the keypad, press PROJ and then enter the three-digit number assigned to
the projector you want to use. If you switch to a projector other than the one you are currently using, the check
mark will disappear.
To broadcast to multiple projectors, press PROJ and then PROJ again without entering a projector number.
Keypad commands will then effect all projectors present.
NOTES: 1) There is no method of controlling a group of projectors within the same wired configuration using
the wired keypad exclusively, since there is only one wired protocol available. 2) The projector’s address can
be set in the Configuration Menu > Communications Submenu.

3.3
Using Inputs and Channels
The projector stores and recalls up to 99 different channels (source setups) for a variety of inputs. This memory
feature allows you to define and use a variety of customized setups. Depending on what you have defined, each
physical source connection (i.e., input at the projector) can have several different channels associated with it.
NOTE: See Section 2 Installation and Setup, for a full explanation of how to connect sources to the projector.

Section 3: Operation
3.3.1 How to Select an Input Or a Channel
Input: An input is a source physically connected to the projector. INPUT describes the source signal and which
input slot it is connected to.
Channel: A channel is a collection of measurements, locations and settings that tailor the display of a signal to
your specific needs. Since source types and applications can vary greatly, you will likely want to adjust and
define a wide variety of parameters, such as brightness, contrast, size, etc., in order to customize and optimize
the display from or for a particular source. For example, the display settings you choose for a VCR source may
be very different from those you choose for a high-resolution computer source.
Once you have adjusted a display parameter, such as pixel tracking or contrast, all current settings are
collectively stored in the projector's memory as a unique two-digit channel, such as 09. You can have
numerous distinct channels available for the same input, any of which can be selected by using the CHANNEL
key on the keypad followed by the two-digit channel number.
A sample channel list available from CHANNEL is shown in
Figure 3-3 Channel List.
NOTE: The CHANNEL key may display a channel list or not,
depending on what you have defined for “Display Channel List”
(see Menu Preferences later in this section).
Switching Inputs: There are 3 methods for selecting an input:

2. Press the appropriate direct SLOT key to quickly display one of the inputs on the selected slot to the main
image. This will not bring up any menu selection, and is only applicable for the main image.
3. Use the following menu options to select the source of the image for the main or PIP/Secondary image.
Menu > Input Switching and PIP > Main Input and Menu > Input Switching and PIP > PIP Input.
The image will be displayed according to the following:
• If it is the first time you have used the source/input (or if you used the input but did not define a channel by
adjusting anything), the projector will recognize the new input signal based on its frequencies and polarities,
automatically displaying an image according to default settings for that signal.
• In general, the image from the new source will be as large as possible without losing its aspect ratio. This and
other default image settings depend on the incoming source.
• If you used the source once before and changed a display parameter, such as contrast, V-Position, etc., then a
channel was automatically created and still exists in projector memory (see CHANNEL below). Using one
of the input or slot keys will automatically recall this channel, all its setup parameters, and update the display
accordingly.
• If more than one channel exists for the input, the image will be displayed according to the setup parameters
for the first channel with matching characteristics.

Section 3: Operation
3.3.2 Create a New Channel
To use a new source with the projector, a new channel must be created so that the projector will respond to an
input signal from that source. A new channel can be created automatically, or it can be copied from an existing
channel and then edited as necessary, refer to Figure 3-6 Copy A Channel and Figure 3-7 Delete a Channel.
When you select a direct input (SLOT 1, SLOT 2, SLOT 3, or SLOT 4), any existing channels in the projector are
searched for matching input and signal parameters – this only occurs if Auto Source is enabled on these
channels. If no match to the incoming input signal is found in currently defined channels, a new channel is
temporarily created based on factory-defined defaults for this type of signal. The channel number assigned is
the lowest available number from 01-99.
NOTES: 1) An automatic channel will be discarded unless one or more of its parameters are changed and will
not appear in the channel list (see below). 2) If 2 channels have the same distinguishing source characteristics
except for the reversal of sync connectors (i.e., H-sync and V-sync, are switched), they are still defined as
distinct channels. 3) You cannot define a new channel without an incoming signal.
3.3.3 Using A Channel
You can normally select a channel at any time by pressing CHANNEL (see below). If you want to hide a channel
from appearing in this list, you must edit the channel, see Figure 3-3 Channel List. Such a channel can still be
selected by entering its number as shown below.
NOTES: 1) The current channel is highlighted in the channel list, or, if the current channel is hidden, the first
channel in the list is highlighted. 2) Channels created automatically do not appear in the channel list unless a
parameter for the channel has been changed.

Adjusting the Image
The most commonly used options for image adjustments are accessed through two menus: Size and Position
(MENU 1) and Image Settings (MENU 2), both of which appear in the Main menu. From either of these two
menus, you can change settings affecting the image from the current channel by working with the appropriate
slide bars, check boxes and pull-down lists. EXIT will return to the previous menu (or to the presentation, if
from the Main menu) and accept any changes you may have entered. Settings are saved with the current
channel.
From your presentation, you can access any of the individual options in these menus by pressing MENU
followed by the appropriate two-digit number representing their location in the menu system. For example,
press MENU 24 to quickly access the “Color Space” option in the Image Settings menu.
NOTES: 1) For certain options, preference may be to use a “direct key” from presentation level to go directly
to a particular option without traveling through the menu system (available for certain display parameters
only). For example, press CONTRAST to access the “contrast” slide bar immediately. Press EXIT to return to
your presentation. 2) To hide “direct” slide bars, disable the Display Slide bars check box in the Menu
Preferences menu. 3) To hide the entire menu system from view, turn off the on-screen display by pressing
OSD then the DOWN ARROW KEY.
For a good and efficient first step in perfecting the image, press the auto setup button, AUTO. This optimizes
critical display parameters such as size, position, pixel tracking, etc., based on the type of incoming source. An
Auto Setup can save considerable setup time, and you can still adjust the image as described below.
The best auto setup will be obtained under the following conditions:
• Input levels, it is best to have an image with saturated (very Bright) colors.
• Phase, high contrast edges are needed.
To determine active window size:
• Video images should have whites and blacks in the image
• Wide range video images should have content (including white) that extends to all edges of the image.
When AUTO is pressed, the auto setup process shall begin. In some cases for analog video a menu may appear
that presents multiple choices that allows the user to select the format that best suits their source. This selection
helps the auto setup get the correct settings for the tracking and phase controls for analog sources that contain
the same number of active lines, but have a different aspect ratios.
• All digital and decoder option cards, will not present an additional auto setup menu since digital hardware
provides enough information to perform the correct auto setup.
• Analog PC graphics sources (4/5-wire sync) present a list of formats based on the current active lines
detected in the video.
• Analog Video Sources (3 wire sync on green) always have the options Default and Advanced. Video
sources use a look up table to determine their format based on video standards. The Advanced auto setup
selection measures the start pixel and start line whereas Default uses the table values as is.

3.5.1 Resize Presets
NOTE: The same resize presets are available to all HD and SXGA+ screen models. However, the graphics
used to describe each preset in this section are of the SXGA+ models only.
Resize Presets will display an image in its native
resolution (no resizing) or will resize the image by
maximizing either the height, width or both height
and width, or will resize to the maximum size
possible while keeping the original aspect ratio.
Size, Position and Blanking parameters will
automatically adjust accordingly or, if Blanking is
set first, which defines an active input area; Resize
Preset scaling will occur in this region of interest
only. Resizing options are explained below.
Resize Presets
1. Default
2. No Resizing
3. Full Size
4. Full Width
5. Full Height
6. Anamorphic
= maximize for current source
= display in native resolution
= fill the screen (regardless of source)
= fill display width & keep aspect ratio
= fill display height & keep aspect ratio
= retain 16:9 aspect ratio
Custom (not selectable)= non-preset values for
Size, Vertical Stretch, H-Position,
V-Position and/or Blanking
Default Resizing: By default when displaying a
new source, your image will utilize as much of the display area as possible for the type of incoming source
data, but with minimal or no changes to aspect ratio.
The “Custom” re-size descriptor automatically appears in the Size and Position menu when any of the values
for Size, Vertical Stretch, H-Position, V-Position or Blanking do not correspond to those for a preset. This
option is not offered in the Resize Presets pull-down list.
• Select default for most sources (factory default). The image will be centered and displayed as large as
possible depending on the type of source.

Section 3: Operation
• No resizing displays the image in its native resolution, which may or may not match the projector’s
resolution. For example, for a source with a native resolution of 800 x 600, “No Resizing” in an SXGA+
projector will use the central 800 x 600 pixels and have a black border. The black border areas are unused
areas, see below.
• Full size uses all pixels for displaying the image, regardless of source or original aspect ratio. Incoming
source material having a different aspect ratio than the projector will be stretched for display.
• Full width fills the display from left-to-right without changing the original aspect ratio of the image.
Depending on the source, data at the top and bottom may be discarded (cropped), or the display may have
black borders at the top and bottom (called “letter boxed”).
• Full height fills the display from top-to-bottom. Depending on the source, this may create borders.
• Anamorphic displays an anamorphic image in its native 16:9 aspect ratio. The image will fill the screen
from side-to-side and be centered between black bars at top and bottom.
3.5.2 Size
Controls both the image width and height in tandem, maintaining the current aspect ratio of the displayed
signal data.

3.5.3 Vertical Stretch
Adjusts the height of the image while keeping the width constant. Use “Vertical Stretch” to change the aspect
ratio of the display.
3.5.4 Pixel Track
Steady flickering or several soft vertical stripes or bands across the entire image indicates poor pixel tracking.
Proper pixel tracking ensures that the image quality is consistent across the screen, the aspect ratio is
maintained, and that the pixel phase can be optimized (described below). Tracking determines the frequency of
the pixel-sampling clock, indicated by the number of incoming pixels per line, so that all pixels generated by a
particular source are sampled.
NOTE: By default, the projector samples at the correct frequency for most sources.
For best results, use a test pattern such as a smooth grey consisting of a clear pattern of black and white pixels,
or a similar “half on, half off” graphic image, such as the Windows 2000 shutdown screen. Adjust the slide bar
until the vertical stripes broaden to the point where one large stripe fills the image. If the image still exhibits
some shimmer or noise, adjust Pixel Phase (below).
3.5.5 Pixel Phase
NOTE: Adjust “Pixel Phase” after “Pixel Track”.
Adjust pixel phase when the image (usually from an RGB source) still shows shimmer or “noise” after pixel
tracking is optimized. Pixel phase adjusts the phase of the pixel-sampling clock relative to the incoming signal.
Adjust the slide bar until the image stabilizes and each pixel is clearly defined. You may notice that you can
stabilize the image at more than one point.
If some shimmer from a video or HDTV source persists, use the “Filter” control to remove high-frequency
noise from the signal.
3.5.6 H-Position
Moves the image right or left within the area of available pixels.
NOTE: The value shown represents where the approximate center of the image lies in relation to the total
number of pixels available horizontally. This varies widely according to the signal; watch the image while
adjusting.
3.5.7 V-Position
Moves the image up or down within the area of available pixels.
NOTE: The value shown represents the approximate center of the image in relation to the total number of
pixels available vertically. This varies widely according to the signal; watch the image while adjusting.
3.5.8 Keep Aspect On Auto Setup
Ensures that auto setup for any source will maintain the input aspect ratio when the default size is calculated. If
disabled and the source is not a special case video source where a default stretch is defined, the source is scaled
to fit the platform.

3.5.9 Blanking - Submenu
This submenu consists of the following options:
• Active Input Window: This read-only value indicates the current size of your displayed data or “region of
interest” as defined by the blanking controls. By default, the projector automatically determines what portion
of its full resolution to use, and pixels in the surrounding borders are turned off. To specify a specific active
input window size by adjust one or more “Blank” settings. For example, if you have blanked (cropped) 100
pixels from both the left and right edges of an incoming source of 1400 x 1050, the remaining active input
window will be reduced to 1200 x 1050.
• Blanking (Top, Bottom, Left, And Right): Crop the image so that
unwanted edges are removed from the display (changed to black).
Blanking defines the size of the Active Input Window, or area of
interest. Range of adjustment depends on the source resolution and
other factors.
NOTE: Blanking a PIP image resembles zoom. For example, left
Blanking zooms the right side of the PIP image; Right Blanking zooms
the left side. There are no black bars.

Section 3: Operation
3.6.1 Contrast
Contrast increases or decreases the perceived difference between light and dark areas of your image (0-100).
For best results, keep close to 50, start with a lower value and increase so that whites remain bright but are not
distorted or tinted, and that light areas do not become white.
NOTE: If the environment lighting changes, an adjustment of Gamma is recommended (see below).
3.6.2 Brightness
Increases or decreases the amount of black in the image (0-100). For best results, keep close to 50. Start with a
high value and decrease so that dark areas do not become black. Conversely, high brightness changes black to
dark grey, causing washed-out images.
3.6.3 Yellow Notch Filter (YNF)
YNF is a channel based control with an additional global control. It works on a “last request gets served” basis.
i.e. Enable YNF in the global control, YNF will be enabled. Thereafter; switch to a channel which does not use
YNF, the YNF filter will be removed (or disabled). Then change the global control, the YNF filter will do
whatever is requested; last request is honored.
3.6.4 Color Space
Determines how the color components of an analog input signal are decoded for accurate color in the display.
Useful only for analog signals and certain digital sources. Although color space for these analog signals is
automatically determined by the projector. You may wish to override this and manually set a color space.
NOTE: For some signals, the color space function is entirely automatic and the pull-down list is disabled.
The current color space appears in the Image Settings menu. Press ENTER to select a different option:
• Select RGB unless you are using component video
• Select YPbPr (Video) with a standard definition televised signal (SDTV).
• Select YPbPr (HDTV) with a high definition televised signal (HDTV).
NOTE: When certain RGB signals are first connected, the projector may not recognize them as RGB and
will incorrectly decode their color information as YPbPr (video). These signals can include:
• RGB signals in NTSC, PAL, SECAM frequency ranges.
• Scan-doubled sync-on-green.
• Scan-quadrupled sync-on-green.
For these signals, change the color Space to RGB, and then define a new channel for future use.
3.6.5 Video Options - Submenu
This submenu is used with video sources only.
• Enable Decoder (AGC): AGC affects decoded video images only. Enter a check mark (default) in most
instances. Activate the decoder’s AGC circuit to ensure properly bright images. Delete the check mark if a
decoded video image exhibits strange color artifacts such as stripes in highly saturated colors, indicating an
incompatibility between this source and the AGC.
• Video Standard: For most video standards available in the world, the projector automatically detects the
incoming horizontal and vertical frequencies and sets the projector’s processing of this signal to the
corresponding standard. The current video standard name appears in the Video Options submenu, and
includes an “A” if it is auto-detected. Press ENTER to view or select a different video standard from those
available to the projector; any that are disabled have frequency characteristics that differ from those of the

incoming signal. Selecting a specific standard forces the projector to process the signal according to this
standard.
NOTE: Best results are obtained with defined channels. Otherwise, switching from one video source to
another can sometimes cause slight disturbances in the display, indicating that the Auto function is
struggling. Recover by briefly selecting a different video standard, then going back.

2. 7.5 IRE
If blacks are gray, select
ensures that blacks in the display are neither crushed (i.e.,
where dark greys appear black) nor excessively elevated (i.e.,
where blacks appear dark grey). By default, the projector automatically determines the best setting according
to the type of incoming video signal:
• 0 IRE – Used for DVD output with “enhanced black”, SECAM, most PAL standards, and Japanese NTSC.
• 7.5 IRE – Used for most NTSC video signals.
For some types of video, you can override the setting. The control is disabled for other types of video (and all
graphics sources). Generally, if black appears crushed when brightness = 50, choose “0 IRE”. If black
appears excessively elevated, use “7.5 IRE”.
• Color: This slide bar adjusts the color saturation level. Lower settings produce less saturated colors, for
example a setting of “0” produces a black and white image. If the color level is too high, colors will be
overpowering and unrealistic.
• Tint: Adjusts the red/green color hue for true color reproduction of video and HDTV signals. For best
results, adjust tint while displaying an external test pattern. It is recommended that tint remain at its default
setting.
• Filter: The proper filter setting is automatically set for virtually all signals, and rarely needs to be changed.
Override only if standard pixel tracking and phase adjustments do not adequately clear up a “noisy” video
signal, or if a graphics signal appears overly “soft”. Both instances indicate that “Filter” may be set to the
wrong option.
• Sampling Mode: Sets the color sampling mode for a digital signal to either YCbCr 4:4:4, RGB or YCbCr
4:2:2. The proper sampling mode is determined automatically by the projector; you can override this setting.
• Film Mode Detect: Enable or disable film motion detection. Only available for interlaced or segmented
frame sources.
• Chroma/luma Delay: Affects any incoming composite or S-video signal, delaying the luma signal
(intensity) in relation to the chroma (color). In the image, increasing the luma delay will move luma (seen as
a shadow where colors overlap) to the right slightly, with colors remaining in place. Decreasing this delay
will move the shadow slightly to the left. If necessary for your current source, adjust so that no shadows
occur with adjacent colors.

Section 3: Operation
• Adaptive Contrast: Dynamically expands the contrast of the output image producing vibrant images with
seamless response to scene changes and fades. The slide bar adjusts the amount of adaptive contrast to apply,
with a setting of “0” producing no change. Adaptive contrast is disabled when the Dynamic Iris is operating
in Dynamic mode.
• Split Screen: This control allows a snap shot of the main image to be presented on the right side or lower
part of the screen, to allow evaluation of advanced image processing features. All resizing controls are
honoured on both images. However, image processing controls (such as, Detail, Sharpness, Noise Reduction
and Adaptive Contrast) only happen on the left side or top image. Changing inputs, channels or test patterns
will disable this control. PIP operation must be disabled prior to enabling this control.
NOTE: Split screen cannot be used in conjunction with either PIP or Tiling. Both PIP and Tiling must be
disabled prior to enabling Split Screen control.
• RGB Quantization Range: This control defines the RGB quantization levels for digital DVI and HDMI
inputs using the RGB colors pace. Typically, graphics sources use the full range of levels for the given bit
depth (i.e. 8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit) and consumer electronics (CE) products typically use a limited range of data
within the given bit depth. This control must be set to limited to correct the levels for those CE products that
use the limited space. This adjusts what is considered black and white levels in the image. As an example for
8 bit space, full range RGB uses levels 0(black) to 255(white). Split Screen cannot be used in conjunction
with either PIP or Tiling. Both PIP and Tiling must be disabled prior to enabling the Split Screen control.
3.6.6 Input Levels - Submenu
NOTES: 1) Because the projector automatically optimizes input levels for all but the most unusual of sources,
it is recommended that only experienced users use the Input Levels submenu. 2) Before beginning, check that
overall contrast and brightness settings are near 50 and that color temperature is properly set up on an
internal gray scale test pattern. 3) See 3.1.6 Remote Keypad Commands, “AUTO”.

Good RGB or input levels—that is, the drives and black levels for each of the three colors, red, green and
blue—ensure that images from analog sources other than decoded video have maximum contrast without
crushing black or white. By default (and in an “Auto Setup”), the projector automatically determines the best
input levels by monitoring image content and adjusting the controls appropriately. Further adjustment is
typically not required to obtain proper blacks or whites.
NOTE: This automatic adjustment requires at least 6-12 consecutive white pixels in the image. Without these
pixels, input levels may produce skewed colors, particularly in non-video images.

Section 3: Operation
For a source exhibiting overly high black levels (typically caused by a noisy source causing black level spikes)
use the Input Levels menu (shown above). These adjustments, serve as a calibration process compensating for
differences in sources and cabling, to perfect the source image input levels and eliminate the “overshoot” and
“undershoot”.
NOTES: 1) Input Levels are of limited use with digital signals, but do offer some ability to tweak poorly
mastered source materials. 2) Input levels apply for the current source only, but for any color temperature
used. 3) Assuming that color temperature has been set up based on the internal test patterns, you can then set
up input levels for a given source so that it matches the color temperature of the internal test patterns.
• Auto Input Level: Use only if you are an experienced user and you have an unusual source that you feel
needs further color temperature and/or input level adjustment. This compensates for incoming out-of-range
drives (white) and black levels (black) that would cause “crushing” of light and dark colors in the image.
After entering a check mark, wait for the six slide bar values to stabilize, then delete the check mark and exit.
The Auto Input Level is automatically turned off upon exit from the Input Levels Menu.
• Black Levels And Drives: To check your image levels and adjust these controls:
IMPORTANT! Do not use Input Levels to adjust color temperature. This will distort contrast and brightness
functions as well as color temperature.
1. Ensure overall “Contrast” and “Brightness” settings are both set to near 50.
NOTE: Not required for “Auto” adjustment.
CONTRAST = 50 (approx.)BRIGHT = 50 (approx.)
2. Check the color temperature setup using an internal grey scale test pattern, making sure to obtain a neutral
grey scale.
NOTE: Not required for “Auto” adjustment.
3. Confirm that you are using input on an Analog BNC card or a Dual Link DVI card. Input Levels are not
applicable for sources going through the decoder. A grey scale is recommended.
4. If black levels are too high (and/or whites are too low, which is rare), you likely have a noisy source that is
producing skewed input levels. Enable “Auto” in the Input Levels menu. Wait for all six values to
stabilize. Alternatively, do not use “Auto”; reduce black levels manually instead. Judge by eye and change
one or more of the six levels as necessary to obtain proper blacks and whites. You may want to see only a
certain color while adjusting; use the Auto Color Enable option (described below).
5. Delete the “Auto” check mark and leave the Input Levels menu.
• Auto Color Enable: When a check mark is present, selecting a specific black level or drive to adjust will
automatically enable the corresponding color in the display. Delete the check mark to see all colors, or to
enable a different specific color through the Color Enable control.
• Clamp Location: Brightens the image produced from certain high-resolution high-frequency graphic
sources. The projector automatically selects the best clamp location for most sources. Use the normal Back
Porch location if the image is either sufficiently bright or overly bright. Select Sync Tip if the image appears
unusually dim, if there are horizontal streaks across the image, or if there is significant color drift. This
moves the clamping pulse from the normal back porch location (which is likely too short) to the tip of the
horizontal sync pulse. Tri Level is typically needed for an HDTV source.
• Input Peak Detector: A tool to assist with defining individual input levels, enabling you to accurately set
the Input Levels for any particular source with the appropriate image. Enabling the Peak Detector activates a
special operating mode for detecting only pixels that are considered black or white—all other levels are
displayed as a mid-level grey. When used with a smooth grey scale pattern in which black and white are
known to be at opposite edges of the image, you can watch these isolated areas while adjusting individual
black levels and input drives until both black and white edges are just visible and distinguished from

neighboring pixels. Images from this source will then display correct blacks and whites without crushing.
See Figure 3-8.
1. Display a 16 level grey scale test pattern from the desired external source, and enter a check mark in the
Input Peak Detector check box.
NOTE: The Input Peak Detector will initially render the grey scale as a uniform grey field before
adjustment or extreme crushing.
2. Display one primary color.
NOTE: Select Auto Color Enable to ensure the correct color is displayed for each setting.
3. For the current color, adjust its corresponding Black level slide bar just until a single band of black appears
at one edge of the screen. This band represents the first band of the grey scale pattern, which should be
100% black.
4. With the same color still active, adjust its corresponding Input Drive slide bar just until a single band of
color appears at the opposite edge of the screen. This band represents the last band of the grey scale
pattern, which should be 100% white (or the current color, if a certain color is enabled).
5. Check the black band and adjust the black level slide bar if necessary.
NOTE: Adjusting the black levels affects the gain. Only adjust when necessary.
6. Repeat Steps 3-5 with the two remaining primary colors. When each primary color shows one optimized
black band and white (or colored) band, the input levels for this source are correctly set. Upon exiting the
Input Levels menu, the Peak Detector check box will clear.

3.6.8 Gamma Settings - Submenu
The system offers two types of gamma correction. Gamma correction can be applied to a specific source to
correct for luma encoding. This is a channel setting and reapplied every time the same signal is detected. This
is the 'Gamma' control. On the other hand the system also provides a global Gamma Correction control. The
global control offers an offset applied to all channels. This offset is used to compensate for changes in ambient
conditions such as ambient light in the room and projected material.
• Gamma Settings: The system offers two types of gamma correction. Gamma correction can be applied to a
specific source to correct for luma encoding. This is a channel setting and reapplied every time the same
signal is detected. This is the 'Gamma' control. On the other hand the system also provides a global Gamma
Correction control. The global control offers an offset applied to all channels. This offset is used to
compensate for changes in ambient conditions such as ambient light in the room and projected material.
• Gamma Correction: Applies a global offset to all gamma settings for each channel. It affects the shape of
the curve by performing a linear transform toward a gamma curve of 1.0 while the control is increasing and
likewise a linear transform toward a gamma of 3.0 as the control is decreasing. The control should only be
adjusted to compensate for ambient conditions. To correct a particular source only, use the Gamma control.
• Gamma: Select the base gamma table for a given source. Select
from one of the standard tables, a custom gamma function, or
select an arbitrary gamma table that has been downloaded to the
projector.
NOTE: A separate PC utility is needed to do this.
The 2.22 curve is a power curve typically used to encode
graphics and video sources, see Figure 3-9 Gamma Curve.
The 'standard' curve (auto setup default) is a modified 2.22
curve with a small linear section in the black that enhances the

detail in darker areas of the projected content. Typically
standard or 2.22 is used for all sources. Alternatively, if neither
default is ideal, apply a simple gamma curve by defining a custom power function and slope. Select Gamma
Function from the drop down list to enable the Gamma Function and Gamma Slope controls. For more
complex non-standard gamma curves, a user-defined curve created externally and downloaded to the
projector can be used (requires separate PC-based Arbitrary Gamma software application to create the table
and the Web UI to download it).
NOTE: If any of these special user curves have been installed, their names will appear in the Gamma Table
pull-down list.
• Gamma Function: Defines the base gamma power curve used when the base gamma table value is set to
Gamma Function. This value, combined with gamma slope setting determines the base gamma table to be
used as the custom base table. The curve is generally a power curve with a small linear segment at the bottom
defined by the slope.
• Gamma Slope: This control defines a slope to be used for the base custom gamma table for a small section
at the bottom of the curve. This slope can be used to bring in or out the low level blacks in the image. This
slope combined with the gamma function, define the custom gamma table.

change required in the Detail Threshold control is reached.
• Texture Enhancement: Applies texture detail enhancement based on adaptive horizontal, vertical, and
diagonal large edge and small edge enhancement processes.
• Detail Threshold: Selects a filter sensitivity to noise. A higher value may improve noisy sources especially
for higher settings of detail.
• Detail Overshoot: Minimizes ringing on the enhanced edges detail and texture effects.

based compression processing.
• Mosquito Noise Reduction: Reduces mosquito artifacts around sharp edges in DCT based compression by
dynamically adapting to image content.
• Split Screen: Provides a snap shot of the main image to be presented on the right side of your screen to
allow evaluation of advanced image processing features. All resizing controls and input card features; such
as color/tint etc, are honoured on both images. However; image processing controls such as the detailtexture, noise reduction and adaptive contrast features, only occur to the left side image. Changing inputs,
channels or test patterns will disable this control.
NOTE: PIP operation must be disabled prior to enabling this control.
• Full Screen Eye-motion Filter: Select this control to apply the Eye-Motion Filter to the entire screen, rather
than applying just to the edge blending.
• Eye-motion Filter: Allows you to adjust this filter to reduce saccadic eye-motion artifacts, sometimes
noticeable in edge blending regions. Too much filtering may result in loss of detail.

9300K, is close to the white of many computer monitors
6500K, is the standard for color video, in both standard and high definition forms
5400K, is a standard for graphics and black and white video
3200K, is useful if the projected image is to be filmed or shot as part of a studio set illuminated with incandescent lights
For all color temperatures the color primaries; red, green, and blue are unchanged and reflect the native
colors of the projector.
• SD Video and HD Video: Sets the output color to a specific standard value. Adjusts the colors; red, green,
blue, and white.
• User#: Select 1 of 4 user defined sets of color adjustments; defined in the Configuration menu.
3.7
Optical Aperture
The optical aperture inside the projector controls the diameter of the light beam passing through the system.
With a fully open aperture (slider control default of ‘0’), the maximum amount of light passes through for
maximum brightness in your images. Increase the setting to reduce the aperture diameter and maximize
contrast ratio instead. Performance of the aperture depends on the lens in use.
NOTE: Optical Aperture (when present) also appears in the Lamp menu.
3.8
Aperture Manual Adjustment
A variable position manual aperture is present on the 1.2:1 and 1.1:1 lens. It may be used together with the
internal electronic aperture to increase the contrast ratio; noting a slight decrease in brightness when it is used.
It is recommended for highest brightness operation, under normal conditions, the manual aperture is to be left
open. See below for aperture Open/Close, and Lock and Unlock dial positions.
NOTE: The lock/unlock dial position allows you to open the aperture at a desired position and lock it in place.

3.9.2 Output Options Card - Submenu
• Screen Image Orientation: Select the on screen image orientation from Front, Rear, Front Inverted, and
Rear Inverted.
• Frame Locking: Select how the projector controls the output frame timing based on the input signal. When
set to Framelock, output image frames are locked to the input if possible. When Locked, the output is
always locked to the primary input, never the PIP/Secondary image. Free Run sets the output to close to
60Hz for all sources.
NOTE: When switching to a new input with frame locking enabled, the image will appear black for a short
duration while the system locks onto the new input.
• Set Frame Delay: This control delays the output signal timing relative to the input signal timing by a
fraction of a frame, and up to several frames. The minimum latency can vary based on the amount of scaling
applied to the image. When using keystone or warping, an additional latency is required, depending on the
amount of warp. The control is only available when the input signal is frame locked. In free run mode, or in
cases where the signal cannot be frame locked, the minimum latency defined by the scaling and keystone/
warp is applied to the signal.
• Actual Frame Delay: Dynamically calculated by the software as the achievable range being smaller than
the set range. The image parameters include, image shift, scaling, warp/keystone applied and format. The
menu displays both the user selected value and the actual frame delay value. When setting up tiling of
projectors, all projectors in the tile should be set to the worst case, which is the projector with the highest
minimum for the setup.
• Free Run Frequency: This control sets the output video vertical frequency.
• Fade To Black Time: This control sets the amount of time (in seconds) that it takes to fade the image to/
from black.
NOTE: The OSD only allows the fade time to be set. To initiate a Fade to Black, the Christie Serial
command should be used.

• HDMI Output Loop Source: This control is used to configure the HDMI output options. Selecting Direct
Loop will directly pass-through the HDMI input signals: on the same Twin HDMI Input Card, the Input1
signal is looped to Output1 and the Input2 signal is looped to Output2. Selecting Main/PIP Loop will loop
the Main and PIP video to the outputs, regardless from which card these signals originate. The Main video
signal is looped to Output1 and the PIP video signal is looped to Output2. Selecting Disable will shut off the
HDMI outputs completely.
3.9.3 Lens Settings - Submenu
• Intelligent Lens System: Check this box to enable the Intelligent Lens System (ILS). When enabled, the
lens position (horizontal, vertical, focus, and zoom offsets) are stored per channel. If you change channels,
the lens position will change as the new signal is being displayed.When ILS is not enabled, the lens is
controlled independently of channels or input signals.
• Manual Zoom/focus: When this control is selected, the holding current is removed from the zoom and focus
motors so that they can be changed manually.
NOTE: Zoom and Focus should not be adjusted manually when this control is not selected, as this will result
in damage to the motors.
• Calibrate: The lens calibration procedure is needed each time a new lens is installed in order for the ILS
feature to perform reliably. This procedure calibrates; horizontal, vertical, focus, and zoom offset
movements.
• Lock All Lens Motors: Select this check box to prevent all lens motors from moving. It will disable the
Zoom, Focus, Horizontal and Vertical Position settings, effectively locking out any changes and overriding
all other lens features. This feature is particularly useful to prevent accidental lens position changes in multiprojector installations.
• Calibrate On New Lens: Check this box to prompt for a lens calibration each time a lens is inserted. The
user will always be prompted before starting the calibration.
• Calibrate On Startup: Check this box to initiate a ‘Lens Reset’ procedure on every power-up. This is useful
if the lens is subject to manual movement between power sessions.
• Home Position: Return the lens to the horizontal and vertical home position. Focus and zoom are unaffected.
• Calibration Status: Displays the current lens calibration status.
3.9.4 Power Management - Submenu
• LCD Backlight: The backlight for the LCD has 3 states. Always On, Always Off, or Timer. The backlight
will turn on again when any key on the LCD is pressed or if an alarm is raised.
• LCD Backlight Timer: Set how long the LCD backlight stays on (in seconds) when in timer mode.
• LCD Backlight Level: Sets the LCD backlight brightness level. Maximum 25/Minimum 0.
• Auto Power Up: If there is an AC power interruption, while Auto Power Up is enabled, the projector will
resume operation in the same state as it left off. If the lamps are on and an image showing when AC power is
lost, the projector will automatically power back up with the lamps on and an image will show when AC is
restored.
• Auto Shutdown Enable: When Auto Shutdown Mode has been selected, and no projector activity has been
seen for the activation time-out period, the projector will enter a power saving mode in which the lamps will
dim and the shutter will close. If this condition persists for an additional time-out period, the projector will
automatically go to Standby mode. The presence of any activity within this combined interval will cancel
Auto Shutdown and return the projector to normal operation.

Section 3: Operation
• Turn Off Image After (Min): This sets the activation interval (in minutes) for Auto Shutdown. If all
activity (input signals, web or serial port activity, key presses) is lost for this length of time, and Auto
Shutdown is enabled, an Auto Shutdown cycle will begin.
• Enter Standby After (Min): This sets the interval (in minutes) between starting Auto Shutdown and
entering Standby mode. Once Auto Shutdown has been entered, and all activity continues to be absent for
this interval, the projector will automatically enter power Standby mode.
• Lamp Regeneration Start Time: For 24/7 operation, the lamp regeneration cycle is required or lamp life
will be reduced. This control allows you to set the time of day (in 24 hour format) when the regeneration
cycle will start. In Dual Lamp mode, the cycle will be performed on each lamp separately. The second lamp
will wait for the first lamp to come back on before it begins the cycle. In single lamp mode, the projector will
go into Standby mode for the regeneration cycle. The regeneration cycle will run for 15 minutes for each
lamp. The lamp(s) must run for a minimum of 24 hours or the regeneration cycle will be skipped.
• Over-temp Fan Assist: When enabled, this option will cause all fans to come on at full speed if any enabled
thermal sensor has an over-temperature fault. This may help to prevent an emergency shutdown if the extra
cooling can bring the temperature within limits before the shutdown occurs. The fan assist will cause
increased noise levels due to the simultaneous full speed operation of all the fans. Normal operation will
resume when all over-temperature conditions are removed or fan assist is turned off.

3.9.8 Serial Options - Submenu
• Baud Rate: Determines the speed of communication to and from the projector on the RS-232 or RS-422
links. The maximum rate for the RS-232 is 115200; for RS-422 it is 19200. Set the baud rate to match that of
your controlling device, such as your PC. Refer to the documentation for the controlling device to determine
the baud rate. In an existing network of projectors, if you discover that a projector has a different baud rate,
use the pull-down list and select the correct baud rate using the ENTER key. Do not scroll this control with
LEFT ARROW KEY or RIGHT ARROW KEY. Serial communication is always eight data bits, no parity.
• Serial Flow Control: Determines whether software flow control or no flow control is used when
transmitting and receiving data on the serial port.
• Projector Address: Enter a three-digit number (such as “001”) to assign or change a number to the projector
currently in use. If the current projector already has a number assigned, that number will appear here (for
example “004” in the menu shown below. Numerical identity for projectors enables you to communicate
with a single projector within a multiple-projector application (see also PROJ key in 3.1.2 Remote Keypad).
If you make a mistake in assigning or changing the projector number, press EXIT to cancel.
NOTE: When multiple projectors are being used and you want to adjust the color for individual projectors

Section 3: Operation
• Separate - Select “Separate” (factory default) to keep RS-232, RS-422 and Ethernet messages on their
respective paths instead of being broadcast to the other types of ports, see Section 2 Installation and Setup.
• RS-232 and RS-422 Joined - Messages originating from an RS-232 or RS-422 controller will be relayed
to all RS-232or RS-422 ports. Any Ethernet communication, however, will not.
• RS-232 and Ethernet Joined - Messages to and from the RS-232 ports will also be relayed to the Ethernet
port, and vice versa. Any RS-422 communications will be isolated. In the case of multiple Ethernet sessions over the single Ethernet connector, input on the RS-232 port will be relayed to all Ethernet sessions;
however, input from any Ethernet session will only be relayed to the RS-232 ports.
• All Joined - All messages reach all ports, regardless of type in the case of multiple Ethernet sessions, input
on one Ethernet session will be relayed to all other Ethernet sessions as well as to the RS-232 and RS-422
ports.
3.9.9 Ethernet Settings - Submenu
NOTE: Recommended for network administrators only.
• DHCP: Users may enable Dynamic IP (DHCP) support if the network is equipped with a DHCP server.
Once enabled, the projector will configure the IP address, subnet mask and default gateway with the settings
provided by the DHCP server. When disabled, the projector will reset the address back to the default static
address (0.0.0.0). If the projector cannot contact a DHCP server, the projector software will revert to using
the Link-Local IP settings.
• Link-Local IP: When set to Dynamic IP, the projector will configure itself to a valid IP address, even if no
DHCP server is available to provide a dynamic IP. If the PC is configured to obtain an IP address
automatically (by default in Windows), both the PC and the projector will use compatible IP addresses.
• IP Address: If DHCP is disabled, enter a valid and unique IP address for use on the network to which the
projector is currently connected. This address will overwrite any previous IP address such as the projector’s
factory-defined default. It takes approximately 10 seconds for the projector to respond at its new address.
• TCP Port: On some Ethernet networks, firewall restrictions may require that the port number of the
projector be changed from its default of 3002. If so, enter a new valid port number here. It is highly
recommended not to use a port # below 1000, as these ports are typically reserved for and used by common
IP applications.
• Subnet Mask: Determines the subnet for the IP address and must be set manually, if not using DHCP.
• Default Gateway: This is the IP address of the gateway used to reach any non-local IP addresses. All PCs
and projectors must be on the same subnet and it must be set manually, if not using DHCP.
• Host Name: Set the host name for the device.
• Domain Name: Set the domain for the device.
• Mac Address: Displays the MAC address of the projector (read-only)
3.9.10DMX / ArtNET - Submenu
The projector supports the DMX512 protocol through both the DMXC option card and through the ArtNET
communications via the Ethernet connector. Both input methods share the same feature list, and can share the
same configuration methods as follows:
• The user may select to monitor both, neither, or a single interface via a DMX control.
• If both interfaces are selected, the DMXC input card will take priority if it is actively receiving data. While
data is active on this card, ArtNET packets will be ignored.
• Only 1 DMXC card can be used at a time. If more than one is populated, the 2nd and subsequent cards will
not be activated.
• The DMXC card will always be active, even when the projector is powered down (i.e. in standby mode).

Section 3: Operation
• When controlling a projector with DMX, it is recommended that no other interfaces (such as the IR Remote
or Web interfaces) are used.
• The Menu for setting the ArtNET and DMX interface is always available at:
Configuration > Communications > DMX/ArtNET Settings.
NOTE: When a DMXC card is installed, the same menu is available at:
Configuration > Option Card Settings > DMX Input Card > DMX/ArtNET Settings.
• DMX Interface: Select whether to monitor the DMXC input card only, the ArtNET interface only, both
(ArtNET is ignored if the DMXC card is actively receiving data), or neither.
• DMX Personality: This control determines how many contiguous channels the projector will respond to.
Fewer channels mean more devices can be used per universe. More channels mean greater control of the
projector, but fewer devices.
• Show Personality (18 channels): This is the default setting. The 18 Show channels are those controls
which are expected to be used throughout the course of an actual show (ie. shutter, channel change). These
channels are a subset of those in the Setup Personality.
• Setup Personality (38 channels): The 38 Setup channels are those controls which are expected to be used
during the setup of an actual show (ie. Projector orientation, Color, Brightness, etc.)
• Nitro Personality (25 channels): The Nitro personality includes channels with Load/Execute style functionality for ‘critical’ functions that require security so that they cannot be changed by a single button press
and will not be affected by a Grand Master. This personality cannot be used with a control board containing only sliders. The Load/Execute channels operate as follows:
• The user must load a value, then send 86 (LOAD), then send 171 (EXECUTE) to execute the loaded
value
• If this sequence of 3 values is not sent to the projector, the command is ignored
See Appendix B: DMX / ArtNET for the DMX Channel Allocation
• Base Channel: There are 512 channels per universe. This control specifies the starting channel for this
projector. If multiple projectors are used on the same universe and are to be controlled independently, this
value must be changed. i.e. If both projectors are using the Show personality (18 channels), projector 1
should start at base channel 1 and projector 2 should start at base channel 19.
NOTE: The Base channel setting must allow enough space for the channels required by the selected
personality (i.e. If the Show Personality is selected, the Base Channel may be in the range 1-494). If the
Setup Personality is selected, the Base Channel may be in the range 1-474.
• Software Termination: This control supplies a signal to the card to switch termination resistance in/out of
the circuit. It may be necessary to clear this setting upon card removal. By default SW termination is
disabled. The Input termination (2 Watt, 120 Ohm) is required on the last DMXC card in a loop through
configuration. (i.e. only on the last projector). Termination may be either hardware (by plugging in a
termination dongle, etc) or may be switched in by software, but should not be both.
NOTE: Hardware termination is recommended, because software termination is only in place when the
projector has AC applied. If there are cases where the network is required to be terminated without AC
applied to the last projector, then a hardware terminator should be used
• ArtNET Universe: For DMX512, each universe represents a separate electrical circuit (up to 512 devices/
channels). For ArtNET however, 'DMX' data is broadcasted over an Ethernet network, so every device will
receive every packet of data, whether they belong to that universe or not. This control specifies which
universe the projector belongs to, so it can filter out all other data packets. The Universe applies to ArtNET
only, and does not apply to the DMXC input card.
• ArtNET Subnet: This is the highest level address in an ArtNET network, providing expandability beyond
the universe level. This control specifies which ArtNET subnet (group of universes) the projector belongs to.
The Subnet applies to ArtNET only, and does not apply to the DMXC input card.

020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
Section 3: Operation
• Input Noise Filter: The Input Noise Filter eliminates DMX/ArtNET input oscillation, which can occur on
some DMX control boards. This can cause fine resolution controls (e.g. Lens, Brightness) to continually
change. A filter setting of 0 will turn off the filter; a setting of 1 will filter +/- 1 step changes, etc. Using this
filter will decrease the fine control precision of some slider controls. By default this filter is set to 0 (Off). It
is not recommended to use this feature unless you are experiencing problems with your DMX input.
• Host Name: This will be used to respond to ArtNET polling queries. ‘Christie’ will be the short name,
‘Christie_HostName’ will be our long name. By default the host name is composed from the projector name
and serial number. (Default = ‘<unit name>_<serial no>’).
NOTE: The Host name is also defined at Configuration > Communications > Ethernet Settings > Host
Name.

3.9.13Geometry Correction - Submenu
Keystone is typically caused by tilting the projector in relation to the screen, so that the lens surface and screen
are no longer parallel to each other. Vertical keystone is used to correct a keystoned image shape in which the
top and bottom borders of the image are unequal in length, and both sides of the image are inclined toward the
top or bottom edge.
Horizontal keystone is used to correct a keystoned image shape in which the left and right borders of the image
are unequal in length, and the top and bottom are slanted to one of the sides.
All settings to adjust keystone are in the Geometry Correction submenu. Brightness Uniformity, Edge
Blending and Black Level Blending should be disabled before performing Keystone adjustments.

“Processing request”.
Under certain combinations of extreme keystone co-ordinates and specific signal frequency, a keystoned image
may result that is outside the bandwidth limitations of the projector. When attempting to apply the keystone
settings, a message will pop up on the OSD, indicating that the bandwidth has been exceeded and the keystone
cannot be applied. The cursor co-ordinates for keystone adjustment will remain at the failed keystone position.
This will allow the user to make minor changes and attempt to reapply the corner settings. Either the coordinates must be adjusted, or the free run frequency must be changed to fall within the allowed bandwidth.
The FUNC+HELP key combination will immediately disable the Keystone, Brightness Uniformity, Edge
Blending and Black Level Blending features. This is helpful when, in some extreme keystone configurations,
some image corruption may appear and/or the menus may not be readable. Although FUNC+HELP disables
these features, it will not overwrite their settings. If keystone is simply enabled again, the same image
corruption may occur. After pressing FUNC+HELP, it is recommend to immediately “Reset Keystone Settings”,
which will set all keystone co-ordinates to zero.

3.9.14Brightness Uniformity - Submenu
Provides further refinement of displays already matched for their primary colors and overall light output. Use
Brightness Uniformity to create an exceptionally smooth image in which no area appears brighter than
another. In the Brightness Uniformity menu, enable the Brightness Uniformity Enable check box to access
a multitude of adjustments for light output control in specific areas throughout the image. Your settings apply
as long as the Brightness Uniformity Enable check box is enabled. While making adjustments, enable the
Coarse Adjustment check box to apply Brightness Uniformity settings with a large granularity. Coarse
Adjustment helps identify brightness changes and accelerates projector response time while adjusting
settings. To disable the Brightness Uniformity function, delete the Brightness Uniformity Enable check
mark.
What Is Brightness Uniformity?
When used to refine screens already matched for their primary colors, see 3.13.1 Match Colors in Multiple
Screens and overall light output, proper adjustment of Brightness Uniformity can create an exceptionally
smooth screen in which:
• No area of the screen appears more red, green or blue than another
• No area of the screen appears brighter than another
• Color and light output from one screen closely matches adjacent screens
Although the Brightness Uniformity control can be used for a stand-alone projector, it is particularly useful
for setting up and maintaining tiled images that form a cohesive display wall in which the color “cast” and light
output appear uniform throughout each image as well as throughout the entire wall. The procedure provided
here assumes a multiple-screen application.
IMPORTANT! Before you begin, read through the entire procedure before attempting to adjust Brightness
Uniformity controls, and keep in mind the following checklist of prerequisites and guidelines:

Adjust Colors First: Always adjust the primary colors as described in 3.13.1 Match Colors in Multiple
Screens procedure, before attempting to work with Brightness Uniformity. This ensures that primary
colors, color temperature, and maximized light output are all well matched from one screen to
another. These matches are needed before you can achieve good brightness uniformity results.

Run Lamp For 100 Hours: Light output and brightness uniformity can vary significantly during the first
100 hours of lamp use. For best results with new lamps, either set up brightness uniformity after this
period, or do an initial setup and re-check at 100 hours.

Set Lamp Power: Ensure that each Lamp Power setting is as high as possible for your application while
still maintaining a good overall match of light output from screen-to-screen. By nature, achieving a
uniform brightness will require a slightly reduced overall brightness—this reduction will help ensure
that you have enough range of adjustment when examining brightness variables more closely from
screen-to-screen, and will help prevent premature “maxing out” when trying to match to a certain
color, zone or projector.
NOTE: On DLV models, the Power control is fixed at 150W to maximize lamp life. In Constant
Power mode, use the Manual Dynamic Iris Position slide bar to adjust brightness. In Constant Intensity mode, use the Intensity slide bar to adjust brightness.

Use A “user” Color Temperature: Always adjust brightness uniformity for a User color temperature
defined when you matched primary colors, and continue to use it for all sources displayed on the wall.
Your other color temperatures will not necessarily be matched from screen-to-screen.

Section 3: Operation

White Uniformity Slide Bars: White Uniformity slide bar values may not reduce to “0”. Each slide bar
adjusts overall light output in a specific screen zone, but the value shown represents the current setting
for green in this zone. When other “hidden” values (red or blue) are lower than green, during adjustment in the White Uniformity menu their values will reach “0” first, causing the slide bar to stop earlier than expected.

Judge By Eye Or Use A Meter: Good brightness uniformity can be achieved with either.
1. General Setup
a. Adjust primary colors see 3.13.1 Match Colors in Multiple
Screens to ensure matched overall color temperatures and light
output between screens.
IMPORTANT! Double-check that all WHITES and LIGHT
OUTPUT are well-matched.
b. Enable the Brightness Uniformity check box. This will
enable access to the uniformity controls and will apply the
settings to your image.
c. Select the 13-Point test pattern for display. This pattern
provides nine screen “zones” with 13 targets as shown.
NOTE: For best results, rather than examining the CENTER
of each zone when assessing Brightness Uniformity
adjustments focus on extreme EDGES as indicated in the illustration at right.
d. In either Color Adjustments menu, select a “User” color. Then:
• If you have created a “User 1” color gamut (recommended) for a well-matched wall, continue to
Step 1e.
• If you prefer maximum brightness rather than a particular color temperature, select Max Drives.
IMPORTANT! Do not change User 1 Color Adjustment in color-matched applications.
e. In the White Uniformity menu, and set the “Overall” output level to 50.0 and all remaining slide bars
to 0.0. This decreases the light output just enough throughout the screen so that any color level can
then be increased later as necessary for matching light output from zone-to-zone. Do not exceed 50.0
for “Overall”—a higher level will likely interfere with achieving brightness uniformity and is not
recommended.
Ensure that overall light output remains well matched from one screen center to the next. Where necessary,
increase or decrease Lamp Power slightly to recover center matches.
2. Adjust Color (level of red/green/blue) in Eight Zones
NOTES: 1) At this point, ignore the brightness of individual zones. 2) Always ignore menu colors.
a. On each screen, compare the color temperatures in the eight target zones (four edges and four corners)
to that of the color temperature of the center. Compare using a white field only, and take note of any
areas that do not match the center. Also decide if any screen exhibits a more obvious color shift than
other screens—begin with this screen in Step 2b.
b. Return to the Brightness Uniformity menu. Beginning with the screen that exhibits the most obvious
color shift(s), for each edge that exhibits a noticeably different color temperature from the center,
select the corresponding Uniformity adjustment menu—Left, Right, Top or Bottom. For example, if
any part of the left side is too blue, too red or too green, go to the Left Uniformity menu and adjust the
colors (i.e., change their light output) until all portions of the left side closely match the center color
temperature. Adjust an edge first (focusing on its center), and then adjust its corners.

020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
Section 3: Operation
Repeat the color adjustment of sides and corners for each edge of the screen that does not yet match the center
(note that each corner is adjustable in either of its two adjacent “side” menus). When done, all areas of a given
screen should match. Repeat Steps 2a and 2b for all remaining screens.
3. Adjust Light Output in Eight Zones
For each screen, compare the light output of each edge and corner to that of the center. If any of the areas
differ, use the White Uniformity menu to match edges and corners to the center as described below. Begin
with the screen exhibiting the most obvious variations in light output.
a. Adjust edge White Uniformity first—note that each edge adjustment also affects the rest of the screen
slightly. Keep all edges just slightly lower than the center light output rather than matching light output
precisely. Otherwise, it may not be possible to brighten the corners (typically the dimmest areas of the
screen) enough. i.e., the best uniformity is a compromise between the brightest and darkest areas of the
screen.
b. Adjust corner White Uniformity last—each corner adjustment affects only this quadrant.
c. Repeat for each screen.
4. Readjust Color Temperature (level of red/green/blue) in Eight Zones
Return to Steps 2a and 2b and, if necessary, fine-tune the zones so that they all still exhibit a single color
temperature. If you do not want to use or apply Brightness Uniformity settings, delete the check mark from the
Uniformity Enable check box at the top of the Brightness Uniformity menu.
NOTE: Bottom defined by the slope.
3.9.15Edge Blending - Submenu
The Edge Blending submenu provides a range of controls for smoothing together the overlapping bright edges
of multiple adjacent projected images to create a single larger “seamless” image. These controls, which
primarily affect white levels, are typically used in conjunction with mechanical lens blinders (optional), which
are installed on the front of the projector and which primarily affect black levels. Brightness uniformity
adjustment, if desired, should be performed first. The Edge Blend or Grid Test Pattern is useful for the
mechanical setup of the projectors. If necessary, adjust Black Level Blending first with the Black test pattern,
then use the White test pattern to blend the white levels on the blend edges. The final step is to check the
blended image with an external source.There is a center line (both horizontal and vertical) in the Edge
Blending test pattern. The intersection of these lines is the true center of the projector’s display area.
The Show Blending Overlap control enables or disables edge blending overlap. When enabled, this will make
the size of the Edge Blending regions obvious. This control should only be used during setup.
What is a Blend?
In simple terms, a blend appears as a gradient strip along an edge of a
projected image. It is darkest along the extreme edge of the image, and
lightens nearer to the rest of the image (see right).
How Are Blends Used?
In multiple-projector walls, complementary blends between neighboring
images can compensate for the extra “brightness” or intensity where these
edges overlap. By controlling blend width and other properties, you can
achieve uniformity across the group of images. Visible overlaps will
disappear, as shown in Figure 3-11 Edge Blending Concept.

Section 3: Operation
For best results, use the same projector model and type throughout your display wall. In addition, avoid highgain screens whenever possible—the optical performance of such screens demands minimal image offset, thus
projectors must be located very close to one another.
FIGURE 3-11 EDGE BLENDING CONCEPT
Edge blending software controls are located in the two-page Edge Blending submenu—access via Configuration menu, then go to the Geometry and Color menu and select Edge Blending. The Advanced Edge
Blending option opens the second page of the Edge Blending submenu.
3.9.16Advanced Edge Blending - Submenu
Use Edge Blending controls to set the precise width, shape and midpoint you need to blend overlapping edges
together smoothly.
• Blend Width: Determines how much area is used for blending along an overlapping edge. Slide bar values
represent the number of pixel steps used for the blend. For example, a setting of “eight” creates a blended
edge 8 pixels wide.
A setting of “0” signifies no blending. For best results in most applications, use a blend width greater than
10% of the resolution of the projector (192 on a 1920 x 1080 projector). Larger blend widths can mask
uniformity issues between multiple projectors.
NOTE: Ranges: (Projector number of columns / 2) horizontal, (projector number of lines / 2) vertical.
Example: 1920 / 2 = 960 pixels horizontal, 1080 / 2 = 540 pixels vertical.
• Blend Shape: Determines the rate of roll-off across the blend width, i.e. how quickly the white levels across
the blend change from light and dark. Increasing the Blend Shape setting accelerates the rate of change at
both extremes so that less of the region appears mid-grey (see Figure 3.20). Decreasing the Blend Shape
setting slows the rate of change so that more of the region appears mid-grey. For most applications, this
subtle control is best left close to 50.
• Blend Midpoint: Determines the white level at the blend midpoint (the point equidistant between the
beginning and end of the blend). Increasing the Blend Midpoint setting creates a blend that appears brighter
than the rest of the image. Decreasing the Blend Midpoint setting creates a blend that is darker than the rest
of the image. A setting of 50 means the midpoint is approximately 50% black—for best results in most
applications, keep fairly close to this default.
• Show Blending Overlap: Turns your defined blend width area to solid grey so that, if needed, simply
overlapping the grey bars can seamlessly align two adjacent images. Toggle the Show Blending Overlap off
to reactivate the blend effect.
NOTE: Blending Overlap appears as Reserved when Christie TWIST is installed.

Edge Blending Procedure
NOTES: 1) Before attempting to work with edge blending software functions, align the projectors/images by
correctly overlapping the displays from your intended external source. 2) Match colors and the brightness
uniformity.
IMPORTANT! For a shared edge, all blend procedures and settings should be identical on both projectors.
1. Start with two projectors. Display full white field test pattern from both.
2. In the Edge Blending submenu, enable Edge Blending by entering a check mark in the top check box.
3. Set starting points for adjustment:
a. Set all blend widths to 0.
b. Go to More and set everything in the Edge Blending menu to 50.
4. Set blend width on one projector, increase the Blend Width for an overlapping edge (for example, if the
projector’s image is on left, its right edge overlaps the adjacent image—adjust Right Blend Width). Use
the same setting on the second projector for this shared edge.
5. Re-adjust width (both projectors) until the overly bright band at the midpoint of the overlapping blends
disappears or just changes to very light grey. For the shared edge, use the same Blend Width setting on
each projector.
NOTE: If the best blend appears to be between two settings, choose the wider setting for both projectors.
6. Check blend if the blended region appears too dark or light in relation to the rest of the image:
a. Increase Blend Midpoint in both projectors to “lighten” the overall blend, decrease to “darken” the
overall blend.
b. Adjust Blend Shape in both projectors to fine-tune change the amount of mid-grey intensity (as
opposed to black/white) in the blend.
7. Repeat with remaining projectors / overlaps.
8. Check completed display wall with the desired external signal.
9. If necessary, adjust the mechanical alignment to maintain perfect pixel-on-pixel alignment over time.
In applications where you are projecting only white or light images, the Blend Width may be slightly higher—
set according to how much overlap you have between images. Use the following as a guide (examples show
overlapping width only—values for overlapping height will differ).
NOTE: Recommended overlap is 12.5% - 25%.

one of these gamuts will produce accurate and realistic colors from a variety of sources. They can be applied at
any time in the Advanced Image Settings menu (“Select Color Adjustment”), and are not adjustable.
Defining “user” Color Gamuts: You may find the pre-defined “Select Color Adjustment” options do not suit
your needs. For example, you may require a unique color gamut (range) for a single projector or application, or
you may need to precisely match colors across multiple adjacent displays. In such cases, use the Color
Adjustments by X,Y or Color Saturation submenu to define the precise hue of each primary color
component (red, green, blue, and white) used to generate the millions of colors produced in displays. You can
create up to four custom color gamuts (User 1, 2, 3, or 4) with these adjustments.
NOTE: The two menus differ only in their user interface, so use whichever menu best suits your needs and
application. A color meter can help with adjustments.
Use this submenu to create, alter or copy a
color gamut (i.e., “color adjustment”).
Controls in this menu define the precise hue
of each primary color component (red, green,
blue, and white) used to generate the millions
of colors produced in displays. The x/y
coordinates for each color define its location
on the standard CIE chromaticity graph.
Changing either or both of these numbers will
change the hue of the color, and relocate the
“triangle” for possible colors. For example,
changing the x/y coordinates for red may
move the color closer to orange or closer to
violet, which will in turn affect all displayed
colors having a red component. Adjust the
slide bars or enter new specific coordinates as
desired to define or change up to four “User”
color gamuts needed for your environment
and applications. Apply at any time in the
Advanced Image Settings menu.
NOTE: Keep new x, y coordinates within the original color gamut triangle shown here.
3.9.18Color Saturation - Submenu
Adjust color slide bars and judge image color by eye or meter. A user-defined color “adjustment” can be
applied by selecting it in the Advanced Image Settings menu (select ‘Color Adjustment’).
Use this submenu if you do not have specific color coordinates in mind and will judge color performance by
eye or meter. Like the Color Adjustment by X,Y submenu, each color control actually defines new x/y
coordinates for that color and changes its hue.
Adjust the hue of each primary color (red, green, blue, and white) by using more or less of it in relation to the
other colors.
NOTE: A Color Saturation adjustment defines the corresponding x/y coordinates shown in the Color
Adjustment by X,Y submenu. These x/y coordinates will remain stable for this User gamut until they are
changed again via either menu. Values displayed in the Color Saturation menu, will fluctuate as you use the
projector, and will be different when you return to this menu in the future. These floating changes do not affect
the x/y coordinates or gamut.

3.9.19Black Level Blending - Submenu
Eliminates the differences between black levels when edge blending multiple projectors. The Black Level
Blending submenu provides many controls to allow the edges of adjacent images to be smoothly overlapped
creating a “seamless” image.
NOTES: 1) Adjust white levels before adjusting black levels. 2) Blinders are recommended for fixed
installations.
Similar to Edge Blending, Black Level Blending allows you to adjust the black level intensity of multiple
adjacent projected images to create one large seamless display.
Black Level Blending Procedure
NOTES: 1) Adjust white levels before adjusting black levels. 2) The zones in BLB menu correspond to the
Edge Blend zones.
1. Start with two projectors. Select the black test pattern for both projectors from the Geometry and Color
submenu.
2. In the Black Level Blending submenu, enable black blending by selecting Standard from the pull-down
list for each projector.
3. Working with one projector at a time, use the center brightness slide bar to adjust the center brightness
(brightness of the non-blended region) so that the center intensity matches that of the brightest blended
region (the center of all images when blending a 2 x 2 display is the target area).
4. You can choose which of the next four options, Top, Bottom, Left, Right, to use depending on which edge
of the projector you are working with has been edge blended. The blend width can be adjusted to line up
properly but by default it corresponds to the edge blending setting determined for that edge.
5. The brightness and black hues of the blended region can be adjusted in more detail in case fine-tuning is
needed (may be only necessary for blending a 2 x 2 projector display because of blending differs for the
sides and center).
NOTES: 1) The menu options vary depending on the edge blending parameters. 2) When adjusting six or
more projectors, you need to ensure that the brightness of each target area is matched at closely as possible.
3.9.20Default Color Adjustments and Default Color Adjustment with YNF
Select the default values for the color adjustment without the Yellow Notch Filter. The value selected is the
default to be used by the system during auto setup or initial detection of a new source. See 3.9.12 Geometry
And Color - Submenu, Color Adjustments by X,Y for description.
3.9.21Tiling Setup - Submenu
Image tiling allows a single input image to be displayed, spread over multiple screens, with each screen
displaying a fraction of the image. The image is displayed by the m × n array of projectors, where m is the
number of rows (1-3) and n is the number of columns (1-3). This allows the following arrays to be set up:
1x2, 2x1, 1x3, 3x1, 2x2, 2x3, 3x2, 3x3
Projectors are numbered from left to right (left column = 1), and from top to bottom (Top row = 1).

configuration. When using loop-through via the Twin HDMI Input Card to distribute a signal to the tiling
array, additional latency in the switching can occur during HDCP repeater negotiations with the source
player.

• Input Peak Detector: A fast method for defining individual input levels, and improving the accuracy of
input levels set by the Auto Input Level function. Enabling the Peak Detector activates a special operating
mode for detecting only pixels that are considered black or white—all other levels are displayed as a midlevel grey. When used with a 16-step grey scale pattern in which the two black and white bands are known to
be at opposite edges of the image, you can watch these isolated areas while adjusting individual black levels
and input drives until both bands are just visible. Images from this source will then display correct blacks
and whites without crushing or washing out.
NOTE: If using Peak Detector with PIP, both images must have the same color space.
• Input Level Detector: This check box enables specific thresholds for blacks and whites. Input levels that
fall below a specified level value (see below) are displayed as black, and all others are displayed as white. To
use:
1. Enable Input Level Detector and display a continuous grayscale.
2. Set Level Detector Threshold to near black (such as 200).
3. Adjust Offsets to minimize area of black stripe.
4. Set Level Detector Threshold to near white (such as 800).
5. Adjust Gains to minimize area of white stripe.
• Level Detector Threshold: Input Level Value defines the value to be used by the Input Level Detector in
recognizing blacks and whites. See Input Level Detector, above.
• Aspect Ratio Overlay: Check this box to display an overlay pattern over the image. The overlay shows the
boxes corresponding to the size and shape of different aspect ratios.
• Test Pattern Color Swap: This function swaps the green and red color when drawing the Grid test pattern,

3.11.12Standby Active Loop-through
Enable this check box in situations where a Twin HDMI Input card is being used to loop signals out to another
projector. Standby Active Loop-Through ensures that video signals continue to be looped out when the
projector enters standby power mode.
NOTE: When the projector is in standby mode (and Standby Active Loop-Through is selected), limited
channel control is available - inputs can be switched, perform auto setup and some limited input settings can
be modified.
3.12 Status
The read-only Status menu lists a variety of details about the standard and optional components currently
detected in the projector. Refer to the Status menu for versions of hardware and software installed, the type
(size) of lamp, the hours logged in total and for a specific period (such as a rental period), and for your
projector model name and serial number. In addition, the Status menu identifies the current channel, its
location, its frequencies and other details.
3.13 Using Multiple Projectors
IMPORTANT! When working with more than two projectors, work left to right, top to bottom.
When an installation requires multiple projectors, use the RS-232 serial ports to daisy chain the units together
and control the group with a single keypad or a computer/controller connected to the first projector. In such a
network, you can choose to broadcast commands to the entire group, or use the PROJ key as desired to limit
responses to an individual projector.
Alternatively, you may want to add projectors to a hub on an Ethernet network. See 2.5.5 Ethernet
Communications for full routing details.
3.13.1Match Colors in Multiple Screens
In a multiple-projector wall, you will likely want to precisely match color and intensity from image-to-image
so that the full wall is as uniform as possible.
3.13.2Preliminary Calibration
All primary colors in the projector are precisely set to pre-established values to ensure that overall color
performance is optimized and is as accurate as possible. Lighting and other environmental factors may slightly
change how these colors appear on your screen. While the change is negligible in most cases, you may prefer
to recover the originally intended color performance before trying to match colors from several projectors.
To achieve consistency use a color meter to measure the native primary colors—red, green, blue, and white—
as they appear at the screen. Record these as Color Primary Settings in the Service menu (password-protected)
for each projector. On the basis of these new values, which are stored in memory, each projector will then
automatically calculate any necessary corrections to reproduce the original factory colors under the current
environmental conditions. This essentially calibrates a projector to its surroundings, compensating for factors
such as screen type; lamp and/or ambient lighting and will improve color accuracy and consistency in a group
of projectors. It ensures a good starting point for further customizing and matching; however, is not critical for
all installations.

020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
3-53
Section 3: Operation
To access the Service menu (password-protected) return to the factory-set color primaries. Select the Reset to
Factory Defaults option in the Color Primaries submenu. Then repeat the calibration process describe above
and continue with matching of colors.
3.13.3Color Adjustment Procedure
Once the Color Primary Settings are calibrated for the site (see above), use the Color Adjustments by X,Y or
Color Saturation menu to further refine each projector’s fundamental colors so that the hue and intensity of
each color appears the same from one display to another. Once matched, you will have created a single new
shared range of colors or “color gamut” that all of your projectors can produce. This palette—named User 1, 2,
3 or 4—can be applied or disabled for a source at any time throughout a bank of adjacent displays, simplifying
both the setup and maintenance of a “seamless” wall.
1. Set up and optimize all projector settings. You can ignore color temperature, since you will be redefining
color performance in this procedure, but do optimize each projector in every other aspect. Closely align all
screen edges.
2. Assign projector numbers to make communications easier. Use desired keypad.
3. Use the same lamp mode for all projectors, and do the following:
•
•
•
•
Set Select Color Adjustment to Max Drives
Display a full white test pattern
Adjust lamp power and Optical Aperture until adjacent white fields appear the same brightness.
Display the Color Adjustments by X,Y menus for all projectors. Each menu shows the x/y coordinates
defining the “Max Drives” color gamut for this projector.
NOTE: The values shown in one (any) of the displays. Use the “Copy From” function to copy them into
a “User” gamut in one projector.

3.14 Remote Control of the Projector
As an alternative to using a keypad, most projector functions can be controlled remotely, typically at a
controller such as a PC, via a web interface.
• Via ASCII Messaging: Connect a serial link between your controller and the RS-232 or RS-422 port
(recommended), or open an Ethernet socket (i.e., Telnet) between your controller and the valid projector
address. Valid ASCII codes and messages are documented in the Christie Serial Communications document
available at the Christie website.
• Via Web Interface: Connect the PC to the projector’s Ethernet port. In the web browser (i.e., Internet
Explorer), enter the IP address of the projector you wish to control. This will prompt a login screen. The
default login ids are: admin, service, and guest. Up to a maximum of 3 users can connect at any given time.
Two users can use the same account to log in. Each user will see a different set of tabs. The default passwords
can be edited by an administrator or a service user in the Admin tab. Guest users will not see this tab. Basic
operations of the projector can be controlled from this interface and the Virtual OSD can be accessed from
here.
3.15 Alarm Conditions
An alarm condition consists of a
message that is on the LCD display
located beside the built-in keypad.
There are two types of alarm conditions:
• Warning Alarm
• Critical Alarm
3-56
J Series 2.0, 2.4 and 3.0 kW User Manual
020-100707-03 Rev. 1 (02-2014)
Section 3: Operation
A warning alarm is shown when an error or a non-optimal condition has occurred. That will generally not
prevent the projector from operating. An example is when a temperature is slightly elevated.
A critical alarm is shown when a condition occurs that could prevent the projector from operating and could
cause damage to the projector. This may cause the projector to shut down automatically. An example would be
a fan not running.
Both alarm types display:
• The item of alarm
• The status of the item
The item of the alarm can be either physical, i.e. fan or sensor, or the alarm can be a software issue, i.e. lamp
driver. The LCD displays the status of the item and its units; if applicable. If the status of the item is out of
normal range an alarm is created. When the status of the item is within normal range the alarm will clear.
NOTES: 1) When an alarm is displayed in the LCD display, the built-in keypad is disabled. To confirm the
alarm, press the OK soft key to enable the built-in keypad. 2) The alarm condition can also be viewed using the
remote in the read only Status menu.

5 Maintenance
Installers, service trained operators and all other users must maintain a safe operating environment at all times.
Read through this section in its entirety and understand all warnings and precautions before attempting to
operate this projector.
5.1
Lamp and Filter Replacement
Do not operate the lamp for more than the warranty limit; risk of the lamp shattering increases as a result of
changes in the quartz glass that occur with use. Operation beyond the lamp warranty limit also significantly
reduces brightness output.
Wait approximately 5 minutes after powering down the projector to allow the
lamp to cool sufficiently before removing.
Never attempt to remove the lamp housing directly after use. The lamp is
under great pressure when hot and may explode, causing personal injury and/
or property damage.
Use only lamps supplied by Christie.
High leakage current. Earth connection essential before connecting supply.
5.1.1 Lamp Replacement Procedure
A Christie accredited service technician must perform lamp replacement.
Cool the lamp completely, then lift the lamp by the handle only.
Do not touch the glass window of the lamp. Fingerprints left on the surface
can lead to an intense accumulation of heat called a ‘hot spot’, which could
potentially result in lamp failure. It is recommended you wear a face shield
when working with the lamp.
For this procedure you will need the appropriate Lamp and Filter Kit manufactured by Christie Digital
Systems. See Table 5.1.

Section 6: Troubleshooting
6.7.4 The Display is Jittery or Unstable
1. If the display is jittery or blinking erratically, ensure that the source is properly connected and of adequate
quality for detection. With poor quality or improperly connected source, the projector will repeatedly
attempt to display an image, however briefly.
2. The horizontal and vertical scan frequency of the input signal may be out of range for the projector. See
Section 7 Specifications for scan frequency ranges.
3. The sync signal may be inadequate. Correct the problem at the source.
6.7.5 The Display is Faint
1. Brightness and/or contrast and/or gamma may be set incorrectly.
2. The source may be double terminated. Ensure the source is terminated only once.
3. The source (if non-video) may need a different sync tip clamp location.
6.7.6 The Upper Portion of the Display is Waving, Tearing or Jittering
This can occur with video or VCR sources. Check your source.
6.7.7 Portions of the Display are Cut Off or Warped to the Opposite edge
Resizing may need adjustment. Adjust until entire image is visible and centered.
6.7.8 Display Appears Compressed (Vertically Stretched)
1. The frequency of the pixel sampling clock is incorrect for the current source.
2. Sizing and positioning options may be adjusted poorly for the incoming source signal.
3. Use an anamorphic lens for typical HDTV and anamorphic DVD sources that have been re-sized and
vertically stretched, via 3rd-party software.
6.7.9 Data is Cropped from Edges
To display the missing material, reduce image size to fill the display area available in the projector, then stretch
vertically to fill the screen from top to bottom. Add the anamorphic lens to regain image width.
6.7.10Display Quality Appears to Drift from Good to Bad, Bad to Good
1. The source input signal may be of low quality.
2. The horizontal or vertical frequency of the input may have changed at the source end.
6.7.11Display Suddenly Freezes
If the screen blacks out inexplicably, it is possible that excessive voltage noise on the AC or ground input has
interrupted the projector’s ability to lock on to a signal. Power down the projector and disconnect from AC.
Then plug in again and power up as usual.

Section 6: Troubleshooting
6.7.12Colors in the Display are Inaccurate
1. The color, tint, color space and/or color temperature settings may require adjustment at your input source.
2. Try Auto Setup.
3. Ensure signal connections are correct.
4. Ensure the proper channel for this source is being used.
6.7.13Display is Not Rectangular
1. Check leveling of the projector. Ensure the lens surface and screen are parallel to one another.
2. Is the vertical offset correct? Make the necessary adjustments to the vertical offset on the lens mount.
6.7.14Display is “Noisy”
1. Display adjustment at the input source may be required. Adjust pixel tracking, phase and filter. Noise is
particularly common on YPbPr signals from a DVD player.
2. Ensure the video input is terminated (75 ohms). If it is the last connection in a loop-through chain, the
video input should be terminated at the last source input only.
3. The input signal and/or signal cables carrying the input signal may be of poor quality.
4. If the distance between the input source device and the projector is greater than 25 feet, signal amplification/conditioning may be required.
5. If the source is a VCR or off-air broadcast, detail may be set too high.

Web Interface
6.8.1 After a Projector Software Upgrade, The Web Pages Do Not Display Correctly
1. After an upgrade, the temporary internet files and cookies must be cleared from the web browser to ensure
that Web UI changes can take effect.
2. Using the Internet Explorer menu bar, select Tools > Internet Options. Click Delete from the Browsing
History option. Click Delete files. Once the Delete Files window displays, click Yes. Then click Delete
cookies. Once the Delete Cookies window displays, click Yes then click Close. Click OK to close the

DMX and Real Time Events
B.1.1 What is DMX?
DMX is a standard for digital communication networks that are commonly used to control stage lighting and
effects.
B.1.2 What is Real Time Events?
A real time event is a pre-recorded sequence of 1 or more serial commands which are executed when a defined
trigger occurs. For example:
• A trigger can be timed based (i.e. Saturday at 1:00pm; occurring every other week)
• A trigger can be event based (i.e. System powers on, good signal, etc.)
• A trigger can be a number of other events (For more details, see 4.2.9 Advanced Tabbed Page - RTE)
NOTE: A real time event can use nested loops and delays. Only statically defined commands can be executes
(i.e. PWR 0, SHU 1). You cannot use variables or other complex programming techniques.
B.1.3 Lens Control Limitations
Normal ILS control of the lens horizontal and vertical positions by the projector respects the boundaries of the
lens keep out area. This area is necessary to prevent damage to components within the projector. When the
DMX controls are used to set the absolute position of the lens, setting values in these keep out areas may result
in an unwanted final lens position. You must ensure that any interim or final lens positions, at any time during
the lens movement, do not enter the keep out area.

DMX Channel Setup
Each personality has a different number of channels:
• Setup Personality - 38 channels
• Show Personality - 18 channels
• Nitro VIP Projector Yoke Personality - 25 channels
It is very important to properly configure the base channel (depending on which personality is used) correctly.
While the DMX specification allows for device overlapping, this may cause undesired results. Below is a table
of how projectors should be configured (assuming that all projectors are to be controlled independently and use
the same personality):
