Introduction
This chapter explains the projector's features and the part names.
Projector Features
Ease of use when installed on a ceiling mount
Centered lens
The lens is positioned in the center of the
projector so it is well balanced and is easy
to mount on a ceiling. This also makes it
easy to line up the screen and the projector.
Equipped with electric lens shift, zoom and focus functions
Using the lens shift function that allows you to adjust the position of the projected image along the horizontal and vertical axis opens up a wide variety of installation locations.
The lens shift, zoom, and focus functions can be operated with a remote control so operation is easy even if the projector is mounted on the ceiling.
Six optional lenses are provided
You can select the best lens according to
the projection distance and purpose. All
the optional lenses are bayonet-type
which allows you to simply and easily
replace and install the optional lenses.
s p.86

Horizontal and vertical installation possible
The projector can be pointed either up or
down to project images on the floor or
ceiling. This makes it an effective
communication tool that lets you express
your ideas with great impact. s p.68
A design that harmonizes with the surrounding environment, and
makes the installation easy
The projector's sophisticated design has a
cable cover in which cables are hidden for
a clean exterior appearance.
The bar type handles are designed to
make moving and installing the projector
easy so it can be handled safely. The
ceiling mount is attached to these handles
to mount the projector on the ceiling.
The projector does not need to be turned
upside down so installation is easy. The
initial settings can be easily set as you
look at the screen because the control
panel is arranged on the back of the
projector.
Easy maintenance
You can replace the lamp by opening a cover and pulling it straight out of the back of
the projector without using a screwdriver.
There is only one air filter so cleaning and replacement are easy. The lamp and air filter can be safely replaced even when mounted on the ceiling because their covers do
not fall off even if you release them.
Projector Features
Safety reliablity
The projector is equipped with two lamps. Even if one of the lamps
breaks, you can continue projecting with the other lamp and avoid
disrupting important presentations.

Enhanced security functions
Password Protect to restrict and manage users
By setting a Password you can restrict who can use the projector. s p.34
Control Panel Lock restricts button operation on the Control panel.
Large Projection Area and Precise Colors
Equipped with a high-resolution WUXGA panel
You can project a dramatic amount of
information on the screen. Viewers can
see the information at a glance without
having to scroll or switch screens.
Epson Cinema Filter supports the color gamut for digital cinema.
Select Theater or sRGB in Color Mode to use Epson Cinema Filter for 100% reproduction of the color gamut used for digital cinema. As a result, this reproduces colors
that are full and deep.
You can use this to prevent people from changing projector settings without permission at events, in schools, and so on. s p.36
Equipped with various anti-theft devices
The projector is equipped with the following types of anti-theft security devices.
s p.38
• Security slot
• Security cable installation point
Easy to handle
Direct power On/Off
In places where power is managed centrally, such as in a conference room, the projector can be set to power on and off automatically when the power source to which the
projector is connected is switched on or off.
Precise color adjustments
As well as Color Mode, you can also adjust the image's absolute color temperature
and the strength of each RGB color. Also, because you can adjust the hue, saturation,
and brightness of each RGBCMY, the image can be projected with depth and a color
matching in superior detail.

Useful Functions
This chapter explains useful tips for giving presentations, and the Security functions.
Correcting Distortion in the Projected Image
There are two ways to correct distortion in projected images as below.
• Quick Corner
This allows you to manually correct each of the four corners of the
projected image separately. s p.15
We recommend using Quick Corner to accurately adjust keystone
distortion.
• H/V-Keystone
This allows you to manually correct distortion in the horizontal and
vertical directions independently. You can perform easy H/V-Keystone
corrections by using the [w/ ] [v/ ] [</ ] and [>/ ] buttons
on the projector's control panel. s Quick Start Guide
q
15
Correcting Distortion with Quick Corner
Procedure
A Press the [Menu] button, and then from the configuration
menu select Settings - Keystone. s "Using the
Configuration Menu"
Using the Remote Control
Using the Control panel
Shift the lens to the position shown below when performing
horizontal and vertical keystone. When the lens shift is not
positioned as below, the distortion is not corrected accurately.
• The horizontal lens shift is set to the center.
• The vertical lens shift is set to the top or bottom.
The correction may not be properly performed according to the
zoom adjustment value.
These two methods cannot be used together. When the Keystone
correction method is selected from the configuration menu, the
correction method you choose is assigned to the [w/ ], [v/ ], [</
], and [>/ ] buttons on the control panel. The default setting for
Keystone is set to H/V-Keystone, so when [w/ ], [v/ ], [</ ],
and [>/ ] buttons are pressed, H/V-Keystone correction is carried out.
Because Quick Corner and H/V-Keystone correction can be carried out
while projecting a test pattern, you do not need to make preparations
by connecting a computer or other equipment.
B Select "Quick Corner", and then press the [Enter] button.
Press the [Enter] button again to display the selection screen from
which you can select one of the four corners.

V-Keystone. s p.45
E Repeat procedures 3 and 4 as needed to adjust any
remaining corners.
F When you are done, press the [Esc] button to exit the
correction menu.
Because the correction method was changed to Quick Corner
from Keystone in the configuration menu, when [w/ ], [v/ ],
[</ ], and [>/ ] buttons are pressed later, the screen for
selecting the corner in procedure 2 is displayed. Change Keystone
from the configuration menu to H/V-Keystone if you want to
correct H/V-Keystone when pressing the [w/ ], [v/ ], [</ ],
and [>/ ] buttons on the control panel.

To limit operation to one target projector, set a Projector ID for the target
projector, and set the same ID for the remote control. s p.29
2. Correct the color difference.
You can carry out color correction when projecting from multiple projectors.
You can adjust from black to white in five stages called levels 1 to 5, and in each
of these 5 levels you can adjust the following two points.
• Correcting brightness
You can correct the image brightness to make them all equal.
• Correcting color
You can adjust the image color to make them match more closely by using Color Correct. (G/R) and Color Correct. (B/Y).
B Select Lv. to be corrected in Adjustment Level.
• Each time a level is selected, the pattern of the level selected is
displayed.
• You can start correcting from any level, usually you can make
it darker or lighter by correcting 1 to 5 or 5 to 1.
C Correct the brightness with Brightness Correct.
• When you select Lv. 5, all the images are adjusted to the
darkest image from multiple projectors.
• When you select Lv. 1, all the images adjusted to the brightest
image from multiple projectors.
• When you select Lv. 2 to 4, all the images are adjusted to the
mid-range brightness image from multiple projectors.
• Because each time the [Enter] button is pressed the image
displayed changes between the pattern display and the actual
image, you can check the correction results and make
corrections in the actual image.

Appendix
This chapter provides information on maintenance procedures to ensure the best level of performance from the projector for a long time to come.
Installation Methods
The projector can be mounted on a ceiling or placed on a desk as
shown below. Also, this projector can project images to various places
because it can project images vertically or horizontally at each 90˚ angle.
Warning
• A special method is required when installing the projector to project images
downward (ceiling mount) or upward. If installation work is not carried
out correctly, the projector could fall down. This may result in injury or
accidents.
Contact your dealer or the nearest address provided in the Support and
Service Guide if you want to use this installation method. s Epson
Projector Contact List
• If you use adhesives on the Ceiling mount fixing points to prevent the
screws from loosening, or if you use things such as lubricants or oils on
the projector, the projector case may crack causing it to fall from its
ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the ceiling
mount and could damage the projector.
When installing or adjusting the Ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to
prevent the screws from loosening and do not use oils or lubricants and so
on.
• When mounting the projector on the ceiling, be sure to arrange measures
to prevent it from falling such as passing a wire through the handles.
68
Attention
Do not install the projector at any angles other than those shown in the
following illustrations. Do not use the projector upside down. Also, set the
Direction properly in the configuration menu according to the angle of
installation. s p.46
Using the projector at an improper angle or if the configuration menu
settings are wrong causes malfunctions and shortens the operating life of
optical parts.
• Suspend the projector from the
ceiling and project images from
in front of a screen.
• Suspend the projector from the
ceiling and project images from
behind a translucent screen.
• Project images from in front of
a screen.
• Project images from behind a
translucent screen.
• Project images directly up

Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of
projected images starts to deteriorate.
Warning
Do not use sprays containing a flammable gas to remove dirt or dust which
is adhering to parts such as the lens or filter of the projector.
This coud be a cause of the fire for the high temperature of lamps inside
the unit.

the projector to rise, and this can lead to problems with operation and
shorten the optical engine's service life. Clean the air filter immediately
when the message is displayed.
• If the air filter is stained yellow with tobacco smoke, it cannot be cleaned.
In this case, replace it with a new air filter. s p.77
• Do not rinse the air filter in water. Do not use detergents or solvents.
• When using a brush for cleaning, use one with long soft bristles, and
brush it lightly. If it is brushed too strongly, dust will be ground into the
air filter and cannot be removed.
Attention
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol, or thinner to clean the
projector's surface. The quality of the case may change or become discolored.
Procedure
A After you turn off the projector's power and the
confirmation buzzer beeps twice, disconnect the power cable.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially available cloth for cleaning glasses to gently wipe
the lens.

This section explains how to replace the Remote Control batteries, the
lamp, and the air filter.
Replacing the Remote Control Batteries
If delays in the responsiveness of the Remote Control occur or if it
does not operate after it has been used for some time, it probably
means that the batteries are becoming flat. When this happens, replace
them with new batteries. Have two AA size alkaline batteries ready. You
cannot use other batteries except for the AA size alkaline.
Attention
Make sure you read the Safety Instructions before handling the batteries. s
Safety Instructions
Procedure
A Remove the battery cover.
While pushing the battery compartment cover catch, lift the cover

Aspect Ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The aspect ratio for
standard images is 4:3.
(Aspect Ratio)
Component Video
A Video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated to provide better image quality.
Refers to images that consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance signal), Pb and Pr (color difference signals).
Composite video
Video signals that have the video brightness signals and color signals mixed together. The type of signals commonly used by household video
equipment (NTSC, PAL, and SECAM formats). The carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and chroma (color) signal that are contained in the color
bar are overlapped to form a single signal.
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased to make text and graphics stand out more clearly, or
to make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called Contrast adjustment.
DHCP
An abbreviation of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, this protocol automatically assigns an IP Addressg to equipment connected to a
Network.
Dolby Digital
A sound format developed by Dolby Laboratories. Normal stereo is a 2-channel format that uses two speakers. Dolby Digital is a 6- channel
(5.1-channel) system which adds to this a center speaker, two rear speakers, and a sub-woofer.
Gateway address
This is a server (router) for communicating across a network (subnet) divided according to subnet masksg.
(Gateway Address)
HDCP
HDCP is an abbreviation for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. It is used to prevent illegal copying and protect copyrights by
encrypting digital signals sent over DVI and HDMI ports. Digital images protected by HDCP technology can be projected with this projector
because the projector's DVI-D and HDMI input ports are compatible with HDCP. However, the projector may not be able to project images
protected with updated or revised versions of HDCP encryption.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television that refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the following conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 720p or 1080i or greater (p = Progressiveg, i = Interlaceg)
• Screen Aspect Ratiog of 16:9
• Dolby Digitalg audio reception and playback (or output)
Interlace
A method of image scanning whereby the image data is divided into fine horizontal lines that are displayed in sequence starting from left to right
and then from top to bottom. The even-numbered lines and odd-numbered lines are displayed alternately.
IP Address
A number to identify a computer connected to a Network.
Glossary
103
Progressive
A method of image scanning whereby the image data from a single image is scanned sequentially from top to bottom to create a single image.
Refresh Rate
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an extremely short time. Because of this, the image must be
scanned many times per second to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh operations per second is called the Refresh Rate
and is expressed in hertz (Hz).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television that refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions for HDTVg
High-Definition Television.
SNMP
An abbreviation for Simple Network Management Protocol, which is the protocol for monitoring and controlling devices such as routers and
computers connected to a TCP/IP Network.
sRGB
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors that are reproduced by video equipment can be handled easily by
computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet. If the connected source has an sRGB mode, set both the projector and the connected signal
source to sRGB.
Subnet mask
(Subnet Mask)
This is a numerical value that defines the number of bits used for the network address on a divided network (subnet) from the IP addressg.
SVGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) ^ 600 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
S-Video
A Video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated to provide better image quality.
Refers to images that consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal) and C (color signal).
SXGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,280 (horizontal) ^ 1,024 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
Sync.
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the resulting images are
not of a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals (the relative position of the crests and the troughs in the signal) is
called Synchronization. If the signals are not synchronized, flickering, blurriness, and horizontal interference occur.
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the resulting images are
not of a good quality. The process of matching the frequency of these signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called Tracking. If Tracking is
not carried out correctly, wide vertical stripes appear in the signal.
Trap IP Address
This is the IP Addressg for the destination computer used for error notification in SNMP.
VGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) ^ 480 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
XGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) ^ 768 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
