Temperature dependence of display. Response speed (optical response) of LCD display is dependent on temperature. Under
low temperature, response speed is slower. Also brightness and chromaticity change slightly depending on temperature.
Remaining of image
Displaying the same pattern for long time may cause remaining of image even after changing the pattern. This is not a failure but
will disappear with time.
Lightning conditions
•
Consider existing lightning and sunlight angles when creating the installation layout. Extremely bright lightning can reduce the
visibility and the quality of the displayed image.
•
In extremely bright surroundings, adjusting screen intensity may not result in perceptibly brightener images. Keep in mind that
extreme intensity settings can reduce system service life.

IR address
Why a IR address ?
As more than one Solaris LC40 can be installed in a room, the separate Solaris LC40 should be separately addressable with an
RCU. Therefor each Solaris LC40 has its own address.
Set up an individual IR Address.
The set up of a LCD panel IR address can be done via the software.
Solaris LC40 controlling.
Every Solaris LC40 requires an individual address between 0 and 9 which can be set in the Service menu.
When the address is set, the Solaris LC40 can be controlled by the remote control:
If it is necessary to control a specific LCD panel, then enter the LCD panel address into the RCU (only when
that address is between 0 and 9). The Solaris LC40 with the corresponding address will listen to that specific
RCU.
5.4.2
Displaying and Programming IR addresses into the RCU
Displaying the LCD panel IR Address on the Screen.
1. Press the Address key (recessed key on the RCU) with a pencil.
The Solaris LC40’s address will be displayed in a ’Text box’
To continue using the RCU with that specific address, it is necessary to enter the same address with the
digit buttons (address between 0 and 9) within 5 seconds after pushing the address key. For example : if
the Address key displays LCD panel IR address 003, then press "3" digit button on the RCU to set the RCU’s
address to match the LCD panel’s IR address. Do not press 0–0–3 . This will address the remote control to ’0’
and control all LCD panels in the room. If the address is not entered within 5 seconds, the RCU returns to its
default address (zero address) and controls then all LCD panels in the room.
5.4.3
RS232 address
Why a RS232 address ?
As the Solaris LC40 can be controlled by a computer, the separate Solaris LC40 should be separately addressable. Therefor each
Solaris LC40 has its own address.
Set up an individual RS232 Address.
The set up of a LCD panel RS232 address can be done via the software.

About Viewport
Overview
A viewport is a window on the input source. The source content will be cropped to the dimensions of that viewport window. The
information in that window will be used for further signal processing.
A viewport is determined by its start position and its width and height.

Viewport creation only works correctly when the total pixels and total lines settings in the viewport menu are
more or less correct: The other settings (Horizontal start, horizontal size, vertical start, vertical size) depend
on these two settings. The software does not allow ’horizontal start’ + ’horizontal size’ to be larger than ’total
pixels’. So, if the menu does not allow you to shift the image far enough, or set the image wide enough, it is
very likely that the total amount of pixels is set too low. The same goes for the vertical parameters.

When the automatic viewport function is selected, the reproduced image returns to the active area of the input signal.

Actual viewport image
Automatic viewport to active area
Automatic viewport detection only works correctly when the total pixels and total lines settings in the viewport
menu are more or less correct: The other settings (Horizontal start, horizontal size, vertical start, vertical size)
depend on these two settings. The software does not allow ’horizontal start’ + ’horizontal size’ to be larger
than ’total pixels’. The same goes for the vertical parameters. So in the rare case the input source causes the
wrong file to be selected, and that file happens to have a much too low setting for either of the two values ’total
pixels’ or ’total lines’, the automatic viewport function will not function correctly, because it will be limited to
the range in the ’total pixels’ and ’total lines’ values.
Steps to be taken

About Phase adjustment
When displaying computer patterns or graphics (RGB or YUV signals) which are very detailed (tilting, vertical stripes, etc. ), jitter
in picture (mis-sampling) may occur, causing horizontal stripes in portions of the screen. When this jitter occurs, adjust ’Phase’ for
optimum image.

Adjusting the input balance
12.4.1 Introduction to Input Balance
Introduction: Unbalanced color signals
When transporting signals, there is always a risk of deterioration of the information contained in the signals.
In case of information contained in the amplitude of the signals which is the case of data color signals (R, G, B),image 12-1 , we are
quite sure that the amplitude of these color signals is subject to alterations.
An example of alteration may be a DC component added to the signal, in the form of a DC offset repositioning the black level, since
this black level (“brightness”) will become crucial later on (clamping circuit) it will result in “black not being black”.
Another value that is subject to alteration is the amplitude of the signal, resulting in an altered “Gain” of the signal (“white level” or
contrast).
The alterations of the three color signals will happen independently i.e. the colors will end to be unbalanced, image 12-2

One can conclude here that a good color tracking can only be met by using three previously (input) balanced
color signals
Analog Digital Conversion
The analog color signals must pass through an Analog/Digital conversion circuit prior to any digital processing in the PMP.
A typical ADC transforms the analog value into an 8 bit coded digital signal.
The graphic shows that when converting a signal containing a DC offset component the range of the converter is not optimally used.

One can conclude here that a good data conversion can only be met by using three previously (input) balanced
color signals
The objective of input balancing
The objective in input balancing is to “set” the same black level and the same white level for the three colors of a particular input
source.
Black level setting : brightness
White level setting : contrast
The same absolute black and white level for the three colors allow the same reference for Brightness and contrast control of the
picture !
These two references also set the range in which the ADC will work for that particular source (this explains also why each input
balance setting is linked to a particular source and thus saved in the image file).

12.4.2 Adjusting the input balance
How can it be done ?
To balance the three color signals of a particular source there are conditions; in fact we must know the black and the white level of
the source i.e. :
1.
The source in question must be able to generate a white signal, ideally a 100% white (background) full screen pattern
2.
The source in question must be able to generate a black signal, ideally a 100% black (background) full screen pattern
B
A
Image 12-4
White balance : In the projector, we will set the contrast for each color until we get a 100% light output picture when displaying a
100% white image (image A)
Black balance : In the projector, we will set the brightness for each color until we get a 0% light output picture when displaying a
100% black image (image B).
The changeover from min to max is indicated by the apparition of bright spots also called “digital noise”
An alternative to a full screen White/black pattern is the standard gray scale pattern, the white bar will be used
for white balance and the black bar for black balance.

12.6 Film mode detection
What can be done ?
Some sources like common DVD material are derived from cinema 24 Hz sources (2/2 or 3/2 pull down method).
The film mode detection insures that these converted signals are shown without artefacts.
This function may cause undesired effects on standard sources, therefore it can be disabled (OFF) at any time
2:2 pull-down
The process of transferring 24-frames/sec film format into video by repeating each frame (used for PAL DVD’s) as two
video fields. ( AD )
3:2 pull-down
Method used to map the 24 fps of film onto the 30 fps (60 fields) or 25 fps (50 fields), so that one film frame occupies
three video fields, the next two, etc. It means the two fields of every other video frame come from different film frames
making operations such as rotoscoping impossible, and requiring care in editing. Some sophisticated equipment can
unravel the 3:2 sequence to allow frame-by-frame treatment and subsequently re-compose 3:2. The 3:2 sequence
repeats every five video frames and four film frames, the latter identified as A-D. Only film frame A is fully on a video
frame and so exists at one time code only, making it the editable point of the video sequence.
How to switch the film mode

12.9.1.1 Introduction to image files
Introduction
An image file contains the main characteristics of a source (number of active lines,...). The displays’s memory contains a list of files
corresponding to the most common sources, these are the standard files (file extension= *.s). When a new source corresponds to
one of these files, a custom file (file extension=*.C) is created and saved for future use.
The maximum number of custom files that can be created is 63, the four last files are systematically overwritten.
When there is a little difference, the file can also be loaded and then edited until the source specs are reached.
The Load Automatic function creates automatically the best suited image file (custom file) for a new source.

Practical example to set up the configuration.
•
Start with the first display and give it a IR address. Enter a logical pin code for the IR unlocking and set the IR locking on.
As the PIN code contains four digits, use e.g. the first 2 digits to indicate the row and the second 2 digits to indicate the colomn.
•
Set display per display on the same IR address, enter the logical PIN code and set the IR locking on.
•
Unlock now the first display and set up the tile configuration and all other adjustments for that display. Set IR locking back on
ON and continue with the next display.

GLOSSARY
2:2 pull-down
The process of transferring 24-frames/sec film format into video by repeating each frame (used for PAL DVD’s) as two video fields.
( AD )
3:2 pull-down
Method used to map the 24 fps of film onto the 30 fps (60 fields) or 25 fps (50 fields), so that one film frame occupies three video
fields, the next two, etc. It means the two fields of every other video frame come from different film frames making operations
such as rotoscoping impossible, and requiring care in editing. Some sophisticated equipment can unravel the 3:2 sequence to
allow frame-by-frame treatment and subsequently re-compose 3:2. The 3:2 sequence repeats every five video frames and four film
frames, the latter identified as A-D. Only film frame A is fully on a video frame and so exists at one time code only, making it the
editable point of the video sequence.
ANSI 73.11
American power plug to connect the power cord to the wall outlet.
CEE7
European power plug to connect the power cord to the wall outlet.
Chrominance
The color component of a video signal that includes information about tint and saturation.
DVI
Digital Visual Interface is a display interface developed in response to the proliferation of digital flat panel displays.
The digital video connectivity standard that was developed by DDWG (Digital Display Work Group). This connection standard offers
two different connectors: one with 24 pins that handles digital video signals only, and one with 29 pins that handles both digital
and analog video. This standard uses TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signal) from Silicon Image and DDC (Display Data
Channel) from VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association).
DVI can be single or dual link.
Luminance
The component of a video signal that includes information about its brightness.
PiP
PiP stands for "Picture in Picture" and allows to display multiple windows containing each of them an image. The windows may be
of the video or data type.
