Introduction
Introduction
This guide provides full information about unpacking the 810 Scaler and
connecting it to the 810 D-ILA Projector and the other equipment in the
system.
Introduction
810 Reference Video System
The 810 Reference Video System consists of two
parts: a powerful 10 megapixel (4096 x 2400) Ultra
High Definition projector, unique in the home theatre
industry, and an advanced scaler featuring Marvell
Qdeo™ technology that upscales SD and HD sources
to this stunning level of resolution for a smooth, flickerfree, cinematic experience. Indeed, the 810 system
surpasses even industry Digital Cinema specifications,
delivering a level of picture quality that is virtually never
experienced outside a film-studio’s preview theatre.
lens). It operates extremely efficiently to keep power
consumption under 1.5 kW.
In the 810 Reference Video System the projector
and scaler are operated as a single system. Serial
data commands flow between the two units to select
the appropriate projection and image processing
parameters at both ends of the chain, so that the
image will always be at its best, whether it is receiving
it from DVD, HDTV, Blu-ray Disc or alternative sources.
The projector is also configured from the scaler
interface, which includes a built-in configuration web
server, accessed via the scaler’s Ethernet connection.
Where some scaling technologies still rely on copying
adjacent pixels to handle upconversion, the 810 scaler
is fully interpolative, and offers a significantly higher
level of processing. A brand new design, featuring
Marvell’s powerful Qdeo™ processing technology, the
scaler converts any digital source (480i to 1080p) up to
full 10 megapixel resolution. Its quiet and natural video
processing produces images that are free from noise
and devoid of artefacts whether operating in 4:3, 16:9
or 2.35:1 modes.
The 810 Projector
The 810 scaler includes a new class of adaptive
video format conversion technologies, accepting video
resolutions from 480i to 1080p, 24 to 60 frames per
second.
The 810 Projector comes with a newly developed
1.27", 4096 x 2400 pixel D-ILA (Direct-drive Image
Light Amplifier) device, and achieves an ultra-high
resolution of 9.83 million pixels – five times that of full
HD.
It achieves a high contrast ratio of 10,000:1 (native) by
combining the D-ILA device with WireGrid (an inorganic
reflective polarising plate) that is employed in the new
optical engine.
The 810 projector enables vertical and horizontal lens
shift (dependent on lens assembly), which enables a
larger degree of flexibility in the layout. It can also be
installed at a tilt angle of up to ±90°, which provides
greater flexibility in the location of the projection screen.
The design is compact and light, and enables
stacking – the projector weighs 55kg (excluding
Each 810 Projector is individually calibrated with unique
procedures developed by William Phelps.
It is supplied with the 810 Scaler, offering upscaling
and rendering of HD and SD sources to incredible 10
megapixel resolution
The 810 Scaler
Incorporated in the technology is a complete set of
noise and artefact reduction technologies. Per-pixel
noise and compression artefact reduction removes
noise typically inherent in digital video, while per-pixel
motion-adaptive 3-D de-interlacing removes jaggies
and eliminates feathering. Marvell’s Adaptive Contrast
Enhancement (ACE) and Intelligent Color Remapping
(ICR) render rich and vivid images, optimising texture,
detail, edges, contrast and colour, providing a
consistent, immersive viewing experience for all types
of content.
The scaler accepts both HDMI and DVI inputs and
delivers a quad DVI path to the projector. In addition
the unit features Meridian comms for full integration
with a Meridian Digital Theatre system, RS232 and
Introduction
USB maintenance ports for firmware upgrades (the
latter allowing an update to be loaded via a memory
stick) and an RS232 connection to the projector.
The scaler is a rack-mounting unit in the same style as
Meridian’s existing C Series of installation products and
includes a vacuum fluorescent front-panel display with
soft buttons that can be used to operate and configure
the unit. Modelled on Meridian’s successful G Series
user interface, the display labels the buttons according
to context.

Overlaying projected images
Projecting images by stacking
projectors
The lens shift feature enables you to use up to three
stacked projectors at the same time.
When projecting images by arranging the projectors
side by side, adjust the shift amount of both projectors
accordingly to superimpose the images.
Stacking projectors enhances the brightness level, and
helps to provide images that are sufficiently bright even
when the venue is relatively large or well-lit.
CAUTION: When the projectors are stacked together
during use, ensure that the installation site is sufficiently
strong and there is proper air cooling around the
projectors. Take the necessary measures to prevent
the projectors from toppling or falling off so as to
ensure safety during emergency situations, such as
earthquakes, and to prevent accidents from occurring.
For details, please consult your authorised retailer.
Projecting images by arranging
projectors side by side
The lens shift feature enables you to use up to two
projectors arranged side by side.
Arranging two projectors side by side enhances the
brightness level, and helps to project images that are
sufficiently bright even when the venue is relatively large
or brightly illuminated.
NOTE: When using the projectors by arranging
them side by side, ensure that the installation site is
sufficiently strong and there is proper air cooling around
the projectors. For details, please consult your Meridian
retailer.

Option
Values
Default
Description
NR
High, Medium, Low, or Off.
Off
Noise Reducer. Reduces the Additive White Gaussian
Noise present in the incoming video. A per pixel motion
adaptive filtering technique is used to reduce the noise.
CAR
On or Off.
Off
Compression Artefact Reducer. Helps reduce blocking
arfifacts and mosquito noise caused by DCT-based
video compression techniques like MPEG. For this
mode to be most effective the source material should
be unprocessed when it reaches the 810, as any prior
upsampling will reduce its effectiveness.
ICR
Vivid, Sky+Grass, Sky,
Grass, Off.
Off
Intelligent Colour Remapper. Identifies specific colours
of the image and makes them more vivid and visually
pleasing.
ACE
High, Medium, Low, or Off.
Off
Adaptive Contrast Enhancement. Improves the contrast
of a video stream on a frame by frame basis using
statistics from the previous frame. It functions in
different ways for different scenes (adaptive). It can
bring out details from darker portions of a scene while
preserving the brighter parts without washing them out.
EDGE
High, Medium, Low, or Off.
Off
Edge Enhancement. Sharpens the transients in a video
signal. This has the effect of emphasizing the details,
transitions and edges of the image. It can help improve
soft images such as from Standard Definition material.

Cleaning and replacing the filters
Turn off the power of the projector unit, and unplug the
power cord when cleaning or replacing the filters.
Failure to do so may cause dust to enter the projector
and shadows to appear on the projected image.
Clean the filters regularly. If the filters are soiled, air
intake efficiency may deteriorate, thus resulting in
malfunction of the product.
The filters and associated components are supplied in
the 810 Service Kit, part number SP7015AA.
Replace each filter with a new one if the filter fails to
remove dust thoroughly or if it is damaged.
If dirt has entered this product please consult your
authorised Meridian retailer.

Maintenance
Routine servicing
Clean dirt from the cabinet
Use a soft cloth. In case of heavy soiling, soak a cloth
in neutral detergent diluted with water, wring dry and
wipe, followed by wiping again using a dry cloth.
Pay attention to the following to prevent the cabinet
from deteriorating, getting damaged, or the paint from
coming off.
•
•
•
•
•
Do not wipe with a stiff cloth
Do not wipe with force
Do not wipe with thinner or benzene
Do not spray volatile chemicals like insecticide
Do not allow prolonged contact with rubber or plastic
products
Remove dirt that is attached to the vent
holes
Use a vacuum cleaner. Wipe using a cloth if a vacuum
cleaner cannot be used. Leaving dust attached may
prevent adjustment of the internal temperature and
result in malfunction of the projector.
Clean dirt on the lens
Use commercial blowers or lens cleaning papers (for
cleaning glasses and cameras).
Do not use fluid-type cleaning agents. This may lead to
peeling of the surface coating film.
The lens surface is fragile. Avoid rubbing or knocking it.
Replacement of light source lamp
The light source lamp is a consumable item. Replace
with a new lamp unit if the image appears dull or if the
lamp burns out.
• When the lamp needs to be replaced soon, users will
be notified through a message on the screen and the
indicator. See Warnings using indicator lights, page
56.
• The life of the lamp used for this projector is about
1500 hours. This is the average life of lamps, and
not a guaranteed value.
• The lamp life may not reach 1500 hours depending
on the operating conditions.
• Deterioration progresses rapidly when the remaining
lamp usable time is short.
• If the image is dark or colour tone abnormal, replace
the lamp unit as soon as possible.
• For details on replacement of the lamp unit, please
consult your Meridian retailer.
