Fig. 16
If the computer fails to find the Presenter Control, the window shown in Figure 6 will appear.
Fig. 17
14
If the connection is set up properly, the setup program will start the main interface (figure 18).
Fig. 18
Curriculum schedule
The first tab is called Curriculum Schedule. Use this tab to automate your Presenter Control. You can
program the Presenter Control to start up and shut down (according the sequence referred to on page
6). You can program up to 10 events each day.
Projector setup
After selecting the projector setup tab, following window will appear.
Fig. 19
15
First check if your projector is listed in the Existing projector list, if so please select the desired projector
and click the icon “programming”. Now the setup program will transmit the right RS232 code to the Host.
If your projector is not in the list, you have to setup the control protocol yourself, using the projectors
information.
Presenter control will support Projectors which are controlled by either serial port or IR-remote control.
Please refer to your projectors operating manual or consult your dealer for the right control code.
Serial port Control
First select “USER-DEFINED PROJECTOR”. Now the window shown in figure 20 will appear.
Fig. 20
Click “serial Port Control” after confirmation. Now the communication parameters will be identified in
advance.
Baudrate
Data number of bits: 7 bits or 8 bits.
Stop Bit: 1 bit.
Verification Mode: none, even, odd, space, mark.
Please look up the projectors parameters carefully in the projectors manual. If you’re not sure contact
your dealer.
Requirements for the RS232 code.
Use hexadecimal digits only. Please transform other codes to the Hexadecimal format.
The symbol “\” is necessary for separating the Hex-digits.
Special characters have to be transferred into Hexadecimal digits also. Use a ascII table for
special characters. E.g. Blank-space is “20”, the line feed character is “0A” and enter character is
“0D”.

(_ signifies space)
Then in the command field should contain: \50\4f\57\52\20\20\20\31\0d (upper/lower case is
insensitive).
Also see the ACII table in appendix 3.
Infrared remote control
If it is impossible to obtain the Control Code of a projector, but the projector can be controlled by
infrared control, please select the “Infrared Remote Control” button. See figure 22.
Fig. 22
Make an “Infrared Learning Cable” (see appendix 1) and connect the wire as shown in figure 7 on
page 9.
The system shall pickup the infrared code of the projector via infrared receiving window on the control
panel of the host.
The computer shall process the infrared code and send out the infrared signal to the infrared receiving
window of the projector through the infrared LED, connected to the wire. You can observe the action of
the projector to verify the correctness of the infrared code.
Please note the following :
Construct an Infrared learning cable according the figure in appendix 1.
The infrared diode should be connected to pins 3/5 and correspond with Anode (+) and
Cathode (-) respectively.
Please place the Infrared LED next to the Infrared receiving window of the projector.
Attention
Please confirm that the power supply of the projector is kept on during the infrared study.
Before executing a certain function, confirm that the projector is ready to receive infrared signals.
After confirmation of the correct connection, turn on the computer and run the setup program to reach
the screen shown in figure 22. Aim the remote control of the projector at the receiving window of the
host’s control panel. Press the corresponding software button (for the infrared function to study), The
setup program will start a window for the button you pressed. See figure 23 on the next page.
18
Fig.23
Now, press the corresponding button on the projector’s remote control. After successful sampling of the
infrared code, a pop up window shall appear asking you to confirm. Therefore, please check the
projectors action. If ok, then confirm. If not ok, press “No” and start all over again.
Fig. 24
Possible causes for problems during infrared learning mode
Check the connections of the learning cable.
Check if the infrared LED is correctly placed next to the infrared receiving window of the
projector.
Incorrect sampling of infrared code. Try again and check the projector’s action.
Let the host learn each function in sequence.
19
DVD IR remote control
It is possible to control a DVD player with your Presenter Control by using it’s infra red remote control. Just
like with a projector as described in the former chapter. Once programmed, you can use the bottom row
of the of the remote control to control your DVD player.
1. Connect the IR LED to the IR LED terminal (37) as shown in figure 15 on page 12.
2. Select the “Study by remote control” tab. Now a window as shown in figure 25 will pop up.
Fig. 25
Proceeding is similar to the projector set up with remote learning function.
Saving the setup.
Please save the data for future maintenance or transform the data to those Hosts which have a similar
configuration. See Figure 26. It is therefore wise to save the setup using a filename that includes the
projector’s name or model number.
Fig. 26
20
Sending the program to the Host.
Connect the programming cable, check if connected properly and click the “programming” button.
Now the data will be send to the host. The transmission speed shall be shown in the transmission process.
When programming is completed successfully, the Presenter control will restart automatically. A pop-up
window as shown in Figure 27 will appear. Confirm and the setup program will be closed.
Fig. 27
21
Maintenance
The DMT Presenter Control requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Disconnect the mains power supply, and then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in
liquid. Do not use alcohol or solvents.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the connectors with a damp cloth.
Make sure connectors are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying electric power.
Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps.
The indication lamp on the control panel is not illuminated.
1. If the device does not operate properly, unplug the device.
2. Check power from the wall, all cables, the fuse, etc.
3. If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
4. If nothing happens after 30 seconds, unplug the device.
5. Return the device to your DAP Audio dealer.
The projector is uncontrollable.
Possible causes:
1. The control code of the projector is not right. (please restart the setup program).
2. The communication cable is not connected to the projector appropriately. (Please check if the pins of
the communication cable are soldered correctly and according the diagram in appendix 1).
Interference on projection screen.
Possible causes:
The power supplies for the projector and other equipment don’t share common ground.
