Introduction
This guide provides full information about unpacking the DVP1080HD Digital Video Processor
and connecting it to the other equipment in your system. It also explains how to operate it to get
superb results with your video sources and display devices.
About the DVP1080HD
The DVP1080HD Digital Video Processor uses a series of patented image-processing
techniques to produce superb image quality with 1920x1080p digital displays from a range
of video sources.
The DVP1080HD converts 1080i interlaced HD video to a clean, 1080p progressive format
for use with digital projectors and plasma displays. It includes full high-definition crossconversion and standard definition processing, with patented technology for de-interlacing,
motion tracking, colour fidelity, and image detail enhancement. Although it is ideal for use
with digital projectors and plasma displays via a DVI or HDMI input, it can give enhanced
image quality with all types of displays, including LCD, DILA, and CRT-based devices.
Selectable output profiles
The DVP1080HD allows you to create a profile for both 50Hz (PAL) and 60Hz (NTSC)
sources for each display in a multiple display installation. Each profile stores 30 different
parameters to ensure that the output is properly optimised for each display, so that the
DVP1080HD produces the highest quality image with any display and any video source.
Inputs
In addition to the recommended DVI high-definition digital video input, the DVP1080HD
provides a range of analogue video inputs to cater for almost every conceivable video
source, including composite video, S-Video, RGB, YPrPb, and HDTV/PC (DV15F).

Installing the digital video processor
Installing the
digital video
processor
This chapter explains how to install the digital video processor. It describes what you should find when you
unpack the product, and how you should connect it to the sources and displays in your system.
You should not make any connections to the product or to any other equipment in your system while the
AC power supply is connected and switched on.
Unpacking
The DVP1080HD Digital Video Processor is supplied with the following accessories:
• Meridian Faroudja remote (in a projector/processor package the remote is packed with
the projector).
• Rack kit.
• Power cord.
• This manual.
If any of these items are missing please contact your dealer.
Note: You should retain the packaging in case you need to transport the unit.
Applications
In a typical application a high-quality digital video source, such as a Meridian G Series DVD
Player, will be connected to the DVI input of the DVP1080HD via an HDMI to DVI cable.
The DVI output will be connected to a projector, such as the Meridian D-ILA1080MF1
or D-ILA1080MF2, or a digital display such as a plasma display. The DVP1080HD will
automatically select the DVI input and output, and will process the video signal to provide
an optimised video image without any additional configuration being necessary.
If you have more than one HDMI or DVI source, the DVP1080HD can be used in
conjunction with the Meridian HDMAX 421 to allow up to four HDMI or DVI inputs to
be connected, including a Meridian DVD Player. The HDMAX 421 is controlled via the
COMMs from the Meridian DVD Player, so the appropriate HDMI/DVI source is selected
automatically when you select an input on your Meridian system.
The DVP1080HD can also cater for additional sources via the component video, S-Video,
or composite video inputs. For example, a satellite receiver could be connected to the RGB
component video inputs. The DVP1080HD will automatically select the active input, or an
input can be selected using a remote control. The DVP1080HD can also be connected to an
analogue display device, such as an analogue CRT projector, via the analogue outputs.
Although in most applications the DVP1080HD will select the appropriate video input and
output without any further configuration, it includes a series of setup menus to allow you
to specify the characteristics of each input and output, and customise the video processing
options. Each set of settings can be stored as a profile and recalled at a later date, and
you can save up to eight different profiles for both 50Hz (PAL) sources and 60Hz (NTSC)
sources to cater for different video sources, display resolutions, or colour settings.

to view an image. If a switcher is used, it must also be HDCP compliant. HDCP acquisition
problems may be displayed as snow or a flashing image on the screen.
The DVI input levels and sync type must be matched to the DVI source in the SETUP menu.
See Configuring the digital video processor, page 17, for details.
Some DVD players may offer a better image using the analogue YPrPb connections with the
player set to 480i/576i output. This allows the DVP1080HD to do all the deinterlacing and
digital conversion.
The Meridian HDMAX 421 allows you to connect up to four HDMI or DVI video sources
to a single HDMI or DVI input. In addition, when a Meridian DVD Player is used as the
controller, the HDMAX 421 automatically selects the appropriate video input corresponding
to the currently selected source.

stabilise the image.
To connect a computer monitor output
• Connect the computer monitor cable to the pass-through input on the DVP1080HD
using a D15F cable.
This allows high scan rate analogue signals to pass through to the display device. Signals
are not processed or transcoded (YPrPb-RGBHV).
Analogue cables must be connected from the processor to the display to get an image from
this input. If the signal on the input is 5-wire RGBHV, the analogue cables on the output
must also be 5-wire RGBHV.
Be sure the display device is compatible with the signal type being sent through this input.
Use a BNC to D15M breakout cable to connect to the source. To prevent ringing and signal
loss do not use D15 to D15 cables longer than 3m (10’).

If you are using a Meridian projector:
• Connect the RS232 OPTION output from the DVP1080HD to the RS232 input of the
projector using the RS232 cable supplied with the projector.
Using cables not rated for the resolution being used will result in images with colour
sparkles and lines, or no image at all. Always verify the maximum resolution of the cable
with the cable supplier. A Meridian HDMAX 121 cable extender may be used at the far end
of an HDMI cable to resolve difficulties in many cases.
For 1080p, fibre optic cables should be used for lengths over 4.5m (15') (or any cable rated
for 1600x1200 resolution. Check with cable supplier).
The processor monitors the DVI input and output status and provides the following

Adjusting the image settings
The options on the PICTURE menu allow you to adjust the picture levels for an optimum
image.The DVP1080HD provides the following image adjustments: Brightness, contrast,
colour, tint, and detail. Tint is only available with composite or S-Video sources. The setting
of each image adjustment is stored for each of the video inputs.
To display the PICTURE menu
After adjusting a setting you can step between the picture level menus using the A and V
keys.
The recommended procedure is to adjust the brightness and contrast of the display device
first, and then for individual movies or channels.
Each picture level should be adjusted for each source using the suggested reference test
pattern in the following sections.
To adjust the brightness
• Press Menu to display the INPUT menu.

Tint is only available with composite or S-Video sources.
The aspect ratio options allow you to select the proper aspect ratio of the source being
viewed.
If the image colour still seems off balance with the tint set correctly the greyscale of the
display may need adjusting. Contact your installer for assistance.
Note that the correct screen shape must be set in the SETUP menu during initial
installation for the settings to function properly; see Configuring the digital video processor,
page 17.
Suggested test pattern: REVERSE COLOR BAR.
The following aspect ratios are available: anamorphic, 4:3, or letterbox.
To adjust the detail
To select anamorphic aspect ratio
DETAIL
|•

This enhances the detail in the image.
Too much enhancement will produce unnatural looking edges and ringing. The higher
quality the source, typically the less enhancement required. With poor digital sources, such
as a poorly transferred DVD or a very compressed satellite channel, reducing the detail level
can help to make compression artifacts less visible.
Suggested test pattern: DVD Movie with a close up of a face in a still frame. Adjust so the
face has detail but the edges do not look fake (such as along the bridge of the nose.
This selects the correct aspect ratio for sources formatted for widescreen displays,
sometimes called Enhanced for Widescreen.
DVD players must be set for 16:9 displays for proper screen shape, see the DVD player’s
Setup menu.
For Meridian DVD players select 16:9 Widescreen in the Display Aspect Ratio menu.
To select letterbox aspect ratio
• Press Letterbox on the remote control.
This selects the proper aspect ratio for sources formatted for the letterbox screen format.
To set advanced colour
• Select the ADVANCED COLOUR SYS option on the PICTURE menu:
ADVANCED COLOR
NORMAL
• Press Anamorphic on the remote control.
SYS
• Press > or < to toggle the setting between NORMAL and BYPASS.
Advanced colour mode activates colour edge enhancement and cross-colour suppression to
improve the image and remove certain video artifacts. This should be set to NORMAL for
most sources.
With a few movies that contain large amounts of colour, such as animation, these
enhancements may cause colour flickering. Set the mode to BYPASS if this occurs.
This mode can also be used with anamorphic 2.35:1 (cinema scope) sources when
combined with an anamorphic lens on a 16:9 projector. The benefit is that the full
resolution of the 16:9 display chip is used to create the active video, improving resolution
and light output. The trigger output can be programmed to control the motorised lens
attachment.
To select the 4:3 aspect ratio
• Press 4:3 on the remote control.
This selects the correct aspect ratio for sources formatted for a 4:3 screen format.

Troubleshooting
Tr o u b l e s h o o t i n g
This chapter provides suggested solutions to common problems that may occur when installing and using
the DVP1080HD.
Connecting the processor to the display
Which output scan rate should I choose for my display?
The appropriate output scan rate selection is usually determined by the actual native pixel
density of a digital display device, or the physical CRT size of an analogue display device
(7”, 8” or 9” CRT).
Each display device will specify their individual video/computer input capabilities. All display
devices will list their specific video/computer input specifications within the User’s Manual,
and are typically located within a “Table of Supported Resolutions”, or under similar
nomenclature.
The following represent basic examples for possible output scan rate selections:
Display Type
Display resolution
DVP1080 scan rate
Plasma TV
1366 x 768
1366 x 768
Digital projector
1366 x 768
1280 x 720
CRT projector
7" CRT
8" CRT
9" CRT
1920 x 540 or 1280 x 720
1280 x 720 or 1440 x 960
1440 x 960 or 1920 x 1080
CRT rear screen
480 i/p, 1080i, or 720p
1920 x 540p or 1280 x 720p
Note: Occasionally, a digital display device may not actually accept the signal received
from the processor at its native pixel resolution. Choose a standard DTV signal in this
instance, such as 1280x720 (default setting), or 1920x540 (1080i equivalent).
There are sparkles appearing throughout the image when using
the DVI output
Cable length is too long to support the output resolution selected on the processor
• Sparkles may occur if the resolution selected on the DVP-1080 processor has exceeded
the ability of the DVI cable to transmit all of the video data (missing bits = sparkles).
This is directly dependent upon cable quality (contact cable manufacturer regarding
length to resolution specifications).
• Unassisted DVI cable lengths to 50ft (15.24m) have been achieved with resolutions of
1024p and lower.
• Cable lengths of 50ft (15.24m), or greater, may require a DVI to Fibre Optic cable
connection between the processor and display for resolutions higher than 1024p;
consult Cable Manufacturer
You can also use a Meridian HDMAX 121 extender/booster at the display end to solve
problems like this. Contact your Meridian authorised dealer for details.
Can the DVP1080 output both an analogue and a digital signal
simultaneously?
Yes. Four potential SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT modes are available through the DVP-1080
SETUP MENU:
Mode
Description
ANALOG RGB + DVI
Both DVI OUTPUT and ANALOG OUTPUTS are active (Default
Setting)
ANALOG RGB
Only ANALOG OUTPUTS are active (RGBHV and MONITOR)
DVI
Only DVI OUTPUT is active (RGBHV and MONITOR out disabled)
ANALOG YPrPb
Only ANALOG OUTPUTS are active (DVI output disabled)
22
Tr o u b l e s h o o t i n g
Note: When SET: OUTPUT FORMAT / ANALOG YPrPb has been selected through the
SETUP MENU, the DVI OUTPUT will be disabled, as the required output signal for DVI is
RGB only.
Is the DVP-1080 capable of passing/processing an HDCP
encrypted DVI/HDMI signal?
Yes. However, the DVI INPUT on the display device must also be HDCP compliant to view
the image, or the HDCP encryption “handshake” will be broken. If when using HDCP
encrypted signals there is digital “snow”, or a message dialog box prompts you to make
an alternate connection, you should then check the display’s Operations Manual to verify
HDCP compliance.
Note: A DVI signal that is HDCP encrypted will deactivate the ANALOG OUTPUTS.
Which type of DVI cable should I use from the processor to the
display?
It is recommended to install a DVI-D, Single-Link cable connection.
The physical DVI connection IN and OUT of the DVP-1080 is a DVI-I, Dual-Link connector.
However, the DVP-1080 internal pin out configuration is for a DVI-D, Single-Link cable
connection. This allows for system connection flexibility. The display device will typically
have a DVI-D type connector.
What length of DVI cable can I use?
High resolution displays require a high quality DVI cable connection from the processor
to the display. DVI cables must be rated to support the scanrate and length to be
implemented; up to 50 foot non-fibre cables are okay for scanrates 1280x1024 and
below. Higher scanrates, such as 1920x1080p, require the DVI cable be rated to at least
1600x1200 for the cable length required. A DVI to fibre optic cable is highly recommended
for cable lengths longer than 16 feet (5m).
If the DVI cable has exceeded its ability to support the resolution selected, you may
experience “sparkles” and/or digital noise throughout the video, or no video at all. To
insure installation success, you should always test your connections, prior to installation.
Which output connection should I choose: DVI, BNC (RGBHV) or
MONITOR (VGA)?
When available, the DVI OUTPUT should always be utilized first. However, it is also
recommended to route an analogue RGBHV cable to enable system expandability.
DVI OUTPUT
Choose this connection first, unless the display device does not support this type input
connection.
BNC (RGBHV) Output
Choose the BNC output connections for analogue display devices that do not have a DVI
input connection.
When SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / DVI is selected within the SETUP MENU, the ANALOG
OUTPUTS are disabled; however, will pass analogue to analogue signals (select appropriate
input on the display device).
MONITOR (VGA) Output
The MONITOR output connection, though convenient, is designed for short cable runs of
nine (9) feet, or less.
The BNC (RGBHV) output is recommended first.
When SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / DVI is selected within the SETUP MENU, the ANALOG
OUTPUTS are disabled; however, will pass analogue to analogue signals (select appropriate
input on the display device).
Note: There is inherent signal degradation utilizing the MONITOR output for cables runs
over nine (9) feet.
YPrPb Output (Component)
Select this output format only when the display device does not support either a DVI,
RGBHV, or 15-pin (VGA) input connection. Select SET: NTSC SCANRATE / 1280x720 or
1920x540 (1080i equivalent), or PAL SCANRATE / 1280x720/50Hz or 1920x1080/50Hz
as these scanrates are the only valid Component video output formats which the display
will understand; both output scanrates are recognized by the display device as a DTV video
signal.
23
Tr o u b l e s h o o t i n g
When SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / DVI is selected within the SETUP MENU, the ANALOG
OUTPUTS are disabled; however, will pass analogue to analogue signals (select appropriate
input on the display).
• Phase picture to center image within the raster area.
There is Dark Banding/Streaking while the video image is

• Blank Left, Right, Top and Bottom Blanking to edge of image.
The video image is either positioned (Phased) too far to the left/right, or the image is too
wide. Though the image may be “filling” the viewable screen area, the display is having
difficulty finding the actual Clamp Pulse (sync signal). The display is now “Clamping” to the
Peak Whites of the video signal; or rather, “clamping” to video, not the sync pulse.
You should recalibrate the display device utilizing a master video test pattern. Utilize a
Component (YCrCb) DVD source and a Safe-Area test pattern (AVIA or DVD Essentials
calibration DVD).
• Image should be clearly seen within the raster area.
• Center raster (with image) on the screen.
• Increase Left/Right and Top/Bottom Size to the edge of screen.
My picture is Magenta or Pinkish in color
RGBHV out into YPrPb in = MAGENTA picture.
The default analogue ACTIVE OUTPUT of the DVP1080 is 5-wire RGB (RGBHV). If your only
video input option to the display is via YPrPb, you must first change the ACTIVE OUTPUT on
the DVP-1080 from RGB to YPrPb within the SETUP MENU.
Digital Display Device (Plasma, D-ILA, DLP or LCD)
Note: The DVI OUTPUT is disabled once YPrPb has been selected; YPrPb is not a valid
output format within the DVI domain.
• Utilize a “Screen Area” test pattern from a calibration test DVD
• Enter the SETUP MENU by pressing Menu on the IR remote for seven seconds

• Center the image on the screen using the positioning controls of the display device only
• Digital displays will have sizing controls labeled Pixel Clock, Dot Clock or just Clock, etc.
This adjustment will expand/contract the image to from the Right; the Left side of the
image should remain relatively fixed to its position
• Use Horizontal Size, Positioning controls and Clock adjustment to center/position the
image on screen.
You will need to utilize all controls to achieve/massage image centering.
• Once the image is centered correctly, fully expand the image to the edge of the screen.

• Use a “Screen Area” setup pattern from a calibration test DVD.
• Reduce the image size by 10% to 15%.
• Un-blank Left, Right, Top and Bottom Blanking.
• Increase BRIGHTNESS to 75%.
• Press < or > to select SET: OUTPUT FORMAT / ANALOG YPrPb
• Press Menu to return to the USER MENU
Note: ONLY select either 1920x540p or 1280x720p scanrates if the display device does
not have an available 5-wire RGBHV or D-15 VGA input connection.
• If you are connecting the DVP-1080 and display device via RGBHV, and your picture
is MAGENTA, you will then need to change the displays input format from COMP
(Component) to RGB or PC.
• Verify that the output/input cable(s) have not been swapped.

out or MONITOR out.
• Connect the HDTV (YPrPb) output signal to the Component input on the DVP-1080
processor.
• Connect a Component (YPrPb) to RGBHV Transcoder between the HDTV source and the
analogue PASS-THRU input on the DVP-1080 processor.
Note: A transcoder converts an analogue YPrPb signals into an RGBHV signal
• Verify that the output/input cable(s) have not been swapped.
• Verify continuity of cable terminations.
Connecting sources to the processor
Can the DVP-1080 process computer signals sent to the DVI
INPUT or PASS-THRU input?
No. The DVP-1080 will only route a digital or analogue computer signal directly to the
pass-through circuitry.
Analogue (VGA)
When an analogue computer source is connected to the PASS-THRU input, you must
connect an RGBHV cable to the display device. The processor will not convert an analogue
VGA signal to DVI; the display device must also be capable of the resolution selected on
the computer source.
Digital (DVI)
When a digital computer source is connected to the DVI INPUT, you must connect a DVI
cable to the display device. The processor will not convert a digital DVI computer source to
RGBHV; the display device must also be capable of the resolution selected on the computer
source.
There is no video from the DVI OUTPUT when the source is
connected to the PASS-THRU input
The D-15 PASS-THRU input will only route RGBHV or YPrPb (Component) signals to passthrough via the ANALOG OUTPUTS of the DVP-1080 (Analogue IN = Analogue OUT). It is
always recommended to install both an RGBHV cable and a DVI cable to the display device
for system expandability.
If the display does not have an RGBHV, or D-15 (VGA) input connection, install a 3-wire
Component analogue cable to the display; however, only 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i are
valid Component video signals.
There is no video from the ANALOG OUTPUTS when the source is
connected to the DVI INPUT
• A DVI input signal that is HDCP encrypted will deactivate the ANALOG OUTPUTS. HDCP
encrypted signals can only connected to the display device using the DVI OUTPUT.
• The DVI input originates from a computer source. All VESA computer resolutions are
sent directly to pass-through in the same format received (Digital IN = Digital OUT).

Do not select an output scanrate which exceeds display device capabilities (refer to display
device User’s Manual).
• Enter the SETUP MENU by pressing Menu on the IR remote for seven seconds
• Front Panel LCD display will indicate SET: NTSC SCANRATE and the current
RESOLUTION below
• Press < or > on the IR remote to select the appropriate output scanrate
• Press Store on the IR remote
• Front Panel LCD display will indicate ARE YOU SURE?
• Press Store to confirm resolution selection.
Is SET: NTSC SCANRATE / 1920x1080 an Interlaced or Progressive
video signal?
The 1920x1080 output scanrate selection is a Progressive Format signal (67.4KHz, 60Hz
refresh). Typically, only high resolution displays will accept/resolve this input signal, such as
9”CRT projection, or a digital display device with a native pixel density of 1920x1080.
Note: Some digital displays will have a physical pixel density of 1920x1080; however, may
not accept this input scanrate. If not, the image may either be split, or half the image is
present, or no image at all. Refer to display user’s manual for signal compatibility.
If the display does not accept 1920x1080 at 60Hz, then you must choose an alternate
resolution the display will understand, such as 1280x720 or 1920x540p (1080i equivalent).
Both output resolutions are perceived by the display as a DTV video signal.
WARNING
DAMAGE may occur if the output scanrate selected within the DVP-1080 SETUP MENU
exceeds theability of the display device to show the image.
Note: Use the same procedure above during SET: PAL SCANRATE, if applicable
(International use)
My connection to the display device is analogue. Which SET:
ACTIVE OUTPUT format should I choose, RGB or YPrPb?
I selected, SET: NTSC SCANRATE / 1920x1080, now there is no
video output.
SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / ANALOG RGB + DVI and SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / ANALOG
RGB
When DVI is not available, the preferred analogue output selection from the DVP-1080 is
always RGB, intimating RGBHV. This produces the highest quality analogue signal, as the
processor will have pre-decoded the incoming video signal to its fundamental constituents
of Red, Green, Blue, horizontal sync/vertical sync.
The 1920x1080 output scanrate is a Progressive Format (67.43kHz), not a 1080i HDTV
Interlaced Format (33.75kHz). The display device must be capable of receiving this scanrate
(refer to display User’s Manual).
When utilizing the DVI OUTPUT, cable lengths to support 1920x1080p should be no
greater than 16ft (5m). Cable lengths longer than 16ft (5m) may require a DVI to Fibre
Optic connection. DVI cable lengths longer than 16ft (5m) may render an unstable image,
“sparkles” throughout the image, or no image at all.
Note: Some digital displays may have a physical pixel density of 1920x1080, but will not
display the actual 1920x1080p/60Hz signal received by the DVP-1080 processor. Example:
1920x1080, 24p/sF. Think of 24p/sF as an Interlaced signal, whereby, a Progressive HD
Segmented Frame is displayed as two individual frames (similar to 1080i), then spliced back
together; an Interlaced Format.
SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / ANALOG YPrPb
When DVI is not available, and display does not have either an RGBHV or 15-pin (VGA)
input connection, select SET: ACTIVE OUTPUT / ANALOG YPrPb from within the SETUP
MENU.
You must also select either SET: NTSC SCANRATE / 1280x720 or 1920x540 (1080i
equivalent), as these scanrates are the only valid Component video output formats which
the display will understand; both the 1280x720 and 1920x540 scanrates are recognized by
the display device as a DTV video signal.

Tr o u b l e s h o o t i n g
Processor operation
The LCD is displaying an OVERHEAT WARNING.
The DVP-1080 processor possesses thermal protection circuitry which actively monitors
internal temperature during operation. Excessive heat may cause the processor to
malfunction, and/or, shorten product lifespan.
• Do not mount processor above power amplifiers or other equipment which generate
excessive heat
• Allow a minimum of one rack space, above and below the unit, for proper ventilation
(1RU or 1.75”).
How do I Store a Profile?
A stored PROFILE is merely a “Snap-Shot-In-Time” for all settings which have been selected
from both the SETUP MENU options (LCD), or the USER MENU (OSD) options, within the
DVP1080 processor, and programmed into the processor’s CPU.
System SETUP MENU Option (LCD)
• Enter the SETUP MENU by pressing Menu on the IR remote for seven seconds
• Select all applicable changes required for the intended PROFILE within the SETUP MENU
• Press Menu to exit the SETUP MENU
• Then, proceed to…
• Insure there is adequate system rack ventilation (preempts failure with additional
installed equipment)
On-screen USER MENU Options (OSD)
• Press Menu to view the On-Screen Display (OSD)
• LEVEL 1 WARNING / HIGH TEMPERATURE
• Adjust all applicable changes required for the intended PROFILE
Internal Temperature is exceeding safe operational limits. Steps should be taken to improve
ventilation
• LEVEL 2 WARNING / HIGH TEMPERATURE
Internal Temperature is at critical thermal limits; processor failure may occur. Immediate
steps should be
implemented, to improve ventilation, and return the unit to optimal operational
temperature
• LEVEL 3 WARNING / EXTREME TEMPERATURE
Internal Temperature has exceeded maximum thermal limitations; processor will shut down.
• A LEVEL 3 WARNING will only display for Five (5) Seconds, then the DVP-1080 will shut
down
• DVP-1080 cannot be powered ON by the front panel power button during this condition
• A LEVEL 3 WARNING indication requires the unit first be unplugged to reset
• Normal operation resumes once the DVP-1080 has returned to optimal thermal
temperature
• Under the menu tab INPUT, use V to highlight PROFILE
• Press the > to select numeric PROFILE
• Press Store.
• Press Menu to exit the On-Screen Display.
When I select 4:3 on the IR remote, the image is not centered
This essentially means the innate 16:9 image from the DVP-1080, when selecting
ANAMORPHIC, is not properly centered on the display device.
• Utilize a DVD ‘Screen Area’ test pattern (DVD Essentials, AVIA, etc.)
• Center, and position the image for a 2.5% over-scan, using the displays sizing and
positioning controls.
• Once the image has been properly centered, sized and positioned (utilizing the display
controls), the 4:3 image will fall-in-to-place and be centered within the 16:9 display
area.
Note: Do not view a 4:3 images for prolonged periods of time on a 16:9 display; image
Burn-In may occur. Image Burn-In is not covered under the warranty.
