• If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, they may explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery compartment and surrounding area may result.

Use only the specified batteries.

• If incorrect batteries are used, they may explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery compartment and surrounding area may result.

Do not mix old and new batteries.

• If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, they may explode or leak, and fire, injury or contamination of the battery compartment and surrounding area may result.

Do not put your weight on this projector.

• You could fall or the projector could break, and injury may result.

• Be especially careful not to let young children climb onto the projector.

Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before carrying out any cleaning.

• Electric shocks can result if this is not done.

Do not install the accessory wireless card to any device other than the card slot of the projector.

• If this is not observed, damage to the device may result.

Ask an Authorised Service Center to clean inside the projector at least once a year.

• If dust is left to build up inside the projector without being cleaned out, it can result in fire or problems with operation.

• It is a good idea to clean the inside of the projector before the season for humid weather arrives. Ask your nearest Authorised Service Center to clean the projector when required. Please discuss with the Authorised

Service Center regarding cleaning costs.

Precautions on handling

Cautions regarding transportation

Be sure to attach the lens cover before transporting the projector.

The projection lens is extremely susceptible to vibration and shocks. When carrying the projector, use the accessory carrying bag.

Cautions regarding setting-up

Observe the following at all times when setting up the projector.

Avoid setting up in places which are subject to vibration or shocks.

If the projector is set up in locations with strong vibration, such as near a motor, or if it is installed inside a vehicle or on board a ship, the projector may be subjected to vibration or shocks which can damage the internal parts and cause malfunctions or accidents. Accordingly, set up the projector in a place which is free from such vibrations and shocks.

Do not set up the projector near high-voltage power lines or near motors.

The projector may be subject to electromagnetic interference if it is set up near high-voltage power lines or motors.

If installing the projector to the ceiling, ask a qualified technician to carry out all installation work.

If the projector is to be suspended from the ceiling, you will need to purchase the separate installation kit (Model No.: ET-PK730). Furthermore, all installation work should only be carried out by a qualified technician.

If using this projector at high elevations (above 1400 m), set the FAN

CONTROL to HIGH. (Refer to page 44 .)

Failure to observe this may result in malfunctions.

Notes on use

In order to get the best picture quality

If outside light or light from indoor lamps is shining onto the screen, the images projected will not have good contrast. Draw curtains or blinds over any windows and turn off any fluorescent lights near the screen to prevent reflection.

Do not touch the surfaces of the lens with your bare hands.

If the surface of the lens becomes dirty from fingerprints or anything else, this will be magnified and projected onto the screen. Moreover, when not using the projector, retract the lens and then cover it with the accessory lens cover.

11

About the screen

If the screen you are using is dirty, damaged or discolored, attractive projections cannot be obtained. Do not apply any volatile substances to the screen, and do not let it become dirty or damaged.

About the lamp

The lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as a particular lamp’s characteristics, usage conditions and the installation environment, especially when it is subjected to a continuous use for more than 10 hours.

About the wireless card and SD memory card

Static electricity from the human body can damage the wireless card or SD memory card. To prevent this, you should touch a nearby metallic object such as an aluminium sash or a door knob to dissipate the static charge from your body.

About the wireless card slot and SD memory card slot

Make sure that there are no foreign objects inside the slot when inserting the wireless card or SD memory card. Failure to observe it may damage the card and the slot.

Before carrying out cleaning and maintenance, be sure to disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.

Wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry cloth.

If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water with a small amount of neutral detergent in it, squeeze the cloth very well, and then wipe the cabinet. After cleaning, wipe the cabinet dry with a dry cloth.

If using a chemically-treated cloth, read the instructions supplied with the cloth before use.

Do not wipe the lens with a cloth that is dusty or which produces lint.

If any dust or lint gets onto the lens, such dust or lint will be magnified and projected onto the screen. Use a blower to clean any dust and lint from the lens surface, or use a soft cloth to wipe off any dust or lint.

Operating range

If the remote control unit is held so that it is facing directly in front of the remote control signal receptors on the front or rear of the projector, the operating range is within approximately 7 m (23´) from the surfaces of the receptors.

Furthermore, the remote control unit can be operated from an angle of

±30° to the left or right and ±15° above or below the receptors.

NOTE:

• If there are any obstacles in between the remote control unit and the receivers, the remote control unit may not operate correctly.

• If strong light is allowed to shine onto the remote control signal receiver, correct remote control operation may not be possible. Place the projector as far away from light sources as possible.

• If facing the remote control unit toward the screen to operate the projector, the operating range of the remote control unit will be limited by the amount of light reflection loss caused by the characteristics of the screen used.

21

Connections

Notes on connections

• Read the instruction manual for each system component carefully before connecting it.

• Turn off the power supply for all components before making any connections.

• If the cables necessary for connecting a component to the system are not included with the component or available as an option, you may need to fashion a cable to suit the component concerned.

• If there is a lot of jitter in the video signal which is input from the video source, the picture on the screen may flicker. In such cases, it will be necessary to connect a TBC (time base corrector).

• The projector has a built-in speaker. However, you will need to connect a separate audio system to the AUDIO OUT jack if your needs specify high sound volumes. No sound will come out of the projector’s built-in speaker while the AUDIO OUT jack is being used.

• It may not be possible to connect some types of computer. Refer to the list

of compatible signals on page 60 .

Setting-up dimensions which are not given in the above table can be calculated using the formulas below.

If the screen size (diagonal) is SD (m), then the following formula is used to calculate the projection distance for the wide lens position (LW) and the projection distance for the telephoto lens position (LT).

LW=0.031xSD/0.0254-0.068

LT=0.0393xSD/0.0254-0.066

For 16:9 aspect ratios, the following formula can be used to calculate the projection distance.

LW=0.034xSD/0.0254-0.068

LT=0.043xSD/0.0254-0.066

NOTE:

• The dimensions in the table above and the values obtained from the above formulas may contain slight errors.

• If you use the projection distance for the 16:9 screen, the 4:3 projection image overflows the screen at the top and bottom.

• If you set up the projector vertically, it may cause to damage the projector.

It is recommended that you set up the projector in a place that is tilted at less than ±30°. Setting up the projector in places that are tilted at more than ±30° may cause malfunctions.

quality will deteriorate, and the harder it will become to achieve a good level of focus. To obtain the best picture quality, set up the projector and screen in such a way that the amount of keystone correction required is as minimal as possible.

• The picture size will also change when correction of keystone distortion is carried out.

• The range of keystone correction varies depending on the type of signal being input. If you make an adjustment that is outside the allowable range, the setting will not be changed. In addition, if the input signal changes after keystone correction has been carried out, the correction setting may be cancelled.

This indicates that the current correction setting exceeds the allowable range for the new input signal.

• If you correct both vertical and horizontal keystone distortion at the same time, the allowable range of keystone correction becomes smaller. If you make an adjustment that is outside the allowable range, the setting will not be changed.

When a 4:3 signal is being input

NOTE:

S1 video signals

S1 video signals are a type of video signal with an aspect ratio of 16:9 which include a detector signal. This detector signal is output by some sources such as wide-vision video decks. If the AUTO setting above is selected, this projector will recognize the detector signal and automatically switch the aspect ratio to 16:9 in order to project the picture.

• This projector is equipped with an aspect ratio selection function.

However, if a mode which does not match the aspect ratio of the input signal is selected, it may affect the quality of viewing of the original picture. Keep this in mind when selecting the aspect ratio.

• If using this projector in places such as cafes or hotels with the aim of displaying programs for viewing for a commercial purpose or for public presentation, note that if the aspect ratio (16:9) selection function is used to change the aspect ratio of the screen picture, you may be infringing the rights of the original copyright owner for that program under copyright protection laws.

• If a normal (4:3) picture which was not originally intended for widescreen viewing is projected onto a wide screen, distortion may occur around the edges of the picture so that part of the picture is no longer visible. Such programs should be viewed in 4:3 mode to give proper consideration to the aims and intentions of the original program’s creator.

RESIZING

This should normally be set to “ON”.

(This setting is only for signals which have lower resolutions than

the LCD panels. Refer to page 60

for details.)

ON

The pixel resolution of the input signal is converted to the same resolution as the LCD panels before being projected. For signals with lower resolutions, gaps in the pixels are automatically interpolated into the picture before it is projected.

This may sometimes cause problems with the quality of the picture.

OFF

The picture signal is projected at its original resolution, with no pixel conversion. The projected picture will be smaller than normal, so adjust the zoom setting or move the projector forwards or backwards to adjust the picture size if necessary.

If set to “OFF”, some features, such as D.ZOOM (digital zoom) or keystone distortion correction will not function.

AUTO SETUP

This item functions in the same way as the AUTO SETUP button on the

Replacing the lamp unit

Warning

When replacing the lamp, allow it to cool for at least one hour before handling it.

• The lamp cover gets very hot, and contact with it can cause burns.

Notes on replacing the lamp unit

• The light generating lamp is made of glass, so dropping it or allowing it to hit hard objects may cause it to burst. Be careful when handling the lamp.

• After having removed the old lamp, carelessly discarding it can cause the lamp to burst. Dispose of the lamp with the same care that would be taken with a fluorescent light.

• A Phillips screwdriver is necessary for removing the lamp unit. Make sure that your hands are not slippery when using the screwdriver.

NOTE:

• The projector is not supplied with a replacement lamp unit. Please ask your dealer for details. Lamp unit product no.: ET-LA730

CAUTION:

• Do not use any lamp unit other than the one with the product number indicated above.

Lamp unit replacement period

The lamp is a consumable product.

Even when the full life of the bulb has not been exhausted, the brightness of the light will gradually decline. Therefore periodic replacement of the lamp is necessary.

The intended lamp replacement interval is 2 000 hours, but it is possible that the lamp may need to be replaced earlier due to variables such as a particular lamp's characteristics, usage conditions and the installation environment.

Early preparation for lamp replacement is encouraged.

A lamp that has exceeded 2 000 hours of use has a much greater chance of exploding. In order to prevent the lamp from exploding, the lamp will be automatically shut off when 2 000 hours of use have been reached.

NOTE:

• The usage hours explained above are for use when the HIGH setting has been selected for LAMP

POWER in the OPTION menu. If the LOW setting is selected, the brightness of the lamp will be less and life of the lamp can be extended.

• While 2 000 hours is the intended replacement interval, it is not a period of time covered by warranty.

Si la surface de la lentille est salie par des empreintes digitales ou autre, ceci sera agrandi et projeté sur l’écran. D’ailleurs, lorsque le projecteur n’est pas utilisé, rétracter la lentille, puis la couvrir à l’aide du capuchon d’objectif fourni.

À propos de l’écran

Si l’écran utilisé est sale, endommagé ou décoloré, des projections de bonne qualité ne peuvent pas être obtenues. N’appliquer aucune substance volatile à l’écran et ne pas le laisser se salir ou s’endommager.

A propos de la lampe

Il est possible qu’il faille remplacer la lampe plus tôt en raison de facteurs variables tels que des caractéristiques de la lampe, des conditions d’utilisation et un environnement d’installation particuliers, en particulier si elle est utilisée de façon continue pendant plus de 10 heures.

A propos de la carte sans fil et de la carte mémoire SD

L’électricité statique produite par le corps humain peut endommager la carte sans fil ou la carte mémoire SD. Pour empêcher ceci, toucher un objet métallique se trouvant à proximité, tel qu’un châssis de fenêtre en aluminium ou un bouton de porte afin de dissiper la charge statique du corps.

A propos de la fente de carte sans fil et de la fente de carte mémoire SD

S’assurer qu’il n’y ait aucun objet étranger dans la fente lorsqu’on insère la carte sans fil ou la carte mémoire SD. Sinon, on risque d’endommager la carte et la fente.

Avant de faire le nettoyage et l’entretien, s’assurer de débrancher la fiche du cordon d’alimentation de la prise de courant.

Essuyer le boîtier avec un tissu doux et sec.

Si le boîtier est très sale, imbiber le chiffon dans de l’eau avec un peu de détergent neutre, bien essorer le chiffon, puis essuyer le boîtier. Après le nettoyage, sécher le boîtier à l’aide d’un chiffon sec.

Si un chiffon traité chimiquement est utilisé, lire les directives fournies avec le chiffon avant de l’utiliser.

Ne pas essuyer la lentille avec un chiffon poussiéreux ou pelucheux.

Si de la poussière ou de la peluche se dépose sur la lentille, elle sera agrandie et projetée sur l’écran. Utiliser une poire à air pour nettoyer toute poussière et peluche de sur la surface de la lentille, ou utiliser un chiffon doux pour retirer toute poussière ou peluche.

Remplacement du bloc de lampe

AVERTISSEMENT

Lors du remplacement de la lampe, la laisser refroidir pendant au moins une heure avant de la manipuler.

• Le couvercle de la lampe devient très chaud, et on risque de se brûler si on le touche.

Notes sur le remplacement du bloc de lampe

• Faire très attention en manipulant le bloc de lampe retiré, car il contient du gaz sous haute pression et peut facilement s’endommager s’il est cogné contre des objets durs ou s’il tombe.

• La lampe produisant la lumière est en verre; elle risque donc d’éclater si on la laisse tomber ou si elle heurte des objets durs. Faire bien attention en manipulant la lampe.

• La lampe usagée qu’on a retirée risque d’éclater si on la jette sans prendre de précautions. Jeter la lampe de la même manière qu’une lampe fluorescente.

REMARQUE:

• Le projecteur n’est pas fourni avec un bloc de lampe de rechange.

Demander les détails au revendeur.Numéro de produit du bloc de lampe: ET-LA730

ATTENTION:

• Ne pas utiliser un bloc de lampe avec un numéro de pièce autre que celui indiqué ci-dessus.

Période de remplacement du bloc de lampe

La lampe est un produit qui doit être remplacé. Même si la durée de vie complète de l’ampoule n’est pas encore épuisée, la luminosité de la lampe diminuera progressivement. Il faut donc remplacer périodiquement la lampe.

L’intervalle de remplacement de la lampe prévu est de 2 000 heures; il est toutefois possible qu’il faille remplacer la lampe avant ce délai en raison d’éléments variables tels que les caractéristiques particulières de la lampe, les conditions d’utilisation et l’environnement d’installation. Il est recommandé de toujours avoir un bloc de lampe de rechange prêt à l’emploi. Une lampe qui a dépassé la limite de 2 000 heures d’utilisation risque beaucoup plus d’exploser.

Afin d’éviter que la lampe explose, celle-ci est éteinte automatiquement lorsque la limite de 2 000 heures d’utilisation est atteinte.

REMARQUE:

• Les heures d’utilisation expliquées ci-dessus concernent l’utilisation lorsque le réglage HAUTE a été sélectionné pour PUIS LAMPE dans le menu OPTION. Si le réglage

FROIDE est sélectionné, la luminosité de la lampe sera moindre et la durée de vie de la lampe sera allongée.

• Bien que le délai de 2 000 heures soit l’intervalle de remplacement prévu, l’obtention de cette durée n’est pas couverte par la garantie.

Precautions on use of SD card

This SD card is a semiconductor memory with the size of 24mm x 32mm x 2.1mm, as small as a postage stamp, and is expected to be a next-generation recording medium that replaces minidisks (MDs), compact disks (CDs) and cassette tapes. The card allows repetition of data reading, writing and deleting.

Instructions on handling

Abstain from the following:

• To disassemble or modify the card

• To give the card a strong impact, twisting, bending, dropping, treading, or water wetting

• To rub the card with a sheet of cloth or plastics or to bring the card near to anything that is likely to generate static electricity or electromagnetic field.

• To touch the metallic terminal of card with hand or metallic object, to affix stickers, or to stain the card.

• To peel off the label that is affixed to the card.

• To affix other labels or stickers.

• To insert the card into a device that does not accept an SD card (e.g., device for multimedia cards).

• To apply excessive force when operating the lid of the card port.

• To use cracked or deformed card.

• To use the card in a moist place such as bathroom or in a dusty place such as warehouse.

Instruction on storage

Be sure to put the card in the case when it is taken out from the main body.

• Do not put the card in a vehicle or in a place exposed to direct sunlight where it may become hot.

• Do not put the card in a place where corrosive gases may arise.

For protection of important data

• Do not turn off the power or do not remove the SD card during memory reading or writing (when the SD card access lamp is blinking). Doing the above may destroy the stored data.

• Do not forget to make backup of the data stored in the SD card. Note that user s important data is subject to potential destruction although it is very rare to occur.

Radio frequencies used by the wireless card

The accessory wireless card and the optional wireless card (ET-CDWL1 series) operate on electronic frequencies within the 2.4 GHz band. You do not need a radio licence in order to use a wireless card, but you should make sure that you understand the following points before using such cards.

Do not use the cards near other sources of radio emissions.

The following devices may use the same frequencies that are used by the wireless card. If the wireless card is used near such devices, radio interference may prevent successful communication, or it may result in

• slower communication speeds being achieved.

Industrial, scientific, medical equipment, etc

Electric stoves, etc

Built-in radio devices used for identifying moving equipment in industrial production lines

Certain low-power radio devices

Keep the wireless card as far away as possible from devices such as mobile telephones, TVs and radios when using such devices

Devices such as mobile telephones, TVs and radios use different frequencies from the wireless card, so that there will be no effect on either wireless card communication or on reception or transmission for such devices. However, radio emissions from the wireless card may cause video or audio interference.

Radio emissions from the wireless card will not travel through steel framework, metal sheets or concrete.

The radio emissions from the wireless card will pass through materials such as wood and glass (except for glass which is reinforced with metal fibres), so that communication is possible because the signals can pass through walls and floors which are made from these materials. However, the radio emission cannot pass through materials such as steel frames, metal sheets and concrete, so that communication is not possible because the signals cannot pass through walls and floors which are made from such materials.

Symptom Please check:

The computer does not recognize the SD card.

• Is the PC card adapter inserted into the PC card slot of the PC until it reaches the end?

• Is the SD card inserted into the SD card slot of the PC card adapter until it reaches the end?

• Is the driver installed?

• Are there sufficient IRQ (interrupting signal) numbers? (Refer to the online help of Windows.)

Writing cannot be performed.

• Is the write-protect switch of the SD card set to "LOCK"?

The image from the

PC is not displayed.

• Is the external video output of the notebook computer properly selected? (In some cases, the setting of the output is changed if Fn and F3 buttons are pressed simultaneously. Since this depends on the model, refer to the instruction manual supplied with your PC.)

The PC does not recognize the wireless card.

• Is the wireless card inserted into the PC card slot of the PC until it reaches the end?

• Is the driver installed?

• Are there sufficient IRQ (interrupting signal) numbers? (Refer to the online help of Windows.)

Transfer rate has become lower.

• If WEP is enabled, transfer operation takes a longer time because the image data needs to be converted.

• If another wireless device uses the same channel, the transfer rate may become lower. Select other channel for setting.

"Projector search" of the Wireless Manager

2.0 does not detect the projector.

• Immediately after the projector is turned on, it is on the way to establish the network communication. Perform the search again after a while.

• Check whether the distance is too far between the PC and the projector, or if any obstacle between is making the radio waves unstable.

• Make sure that the IP address and the subnet mask are correctly assigned.

• Is TCP/IP installed in your personal computer?

• Does the WEP setting correspond with that of the projector?

Communication with the projector cannot be established if the WEP function was enabled when a third-party wireless card was used or the access point was used. Disable the WEP function.

• In the Ad Hoc mode, use the same channel setting for the projector and the PC.

• In the Infrastructure mode, use the same setting for the projector and the PC as the access point "SSID". Alphanumeric characters (case sensitive) can be used for an SSID. Make sure that the user is not using the function for controlling PCs that can communicate with the access point.

• Is any network device other than the wireless card enabled? Check with the device manager of Windows.

• Is any proxy-client software operating? Disable it when communicating with the projector.

125

Symptom

Although an image is displayed on the

"Image list" screen of the Wireless Manager

2.0, an error message appears saying that this image cannot be displayed.

Colors are not displayed properly with Wireless

Manager 2.0 and it is hard to read characters.

Please check:

• There are several different formats in JPEG and PNG images and some of them cannot be displayed.

• Right-click the space on the desktop and choose "Properties". On the

"Display Properties", open the "Settings" tab and set "Colors" to

"High Color [16 bit]" or higher.

126

Explanation of terms

LAN

Abbreviation for Local Area Network. A network which is small in scale, such as an intra-company network. Both wired LANs and wireless LANs can be found. This projector uses a wireless LAN.

TCP/IP

Abbreviation for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The standard protocol for the Internet.

A protocol is a set of specifications and agreements which allow two computers to communicate with each other.

IP Address

An Internet Protocol (IP) is a protocol used for the transmission of data, and the IP address is the address of the destination where the data is being sent to. Identical IP addresses cannot be used for two different devices within the one LAN.

Subnet Mask

Limits the range of IP addresses that can be assigned to a computer when using a

TCP/IP connection, in order to allow a network to be divided into several subsections. The parameters which divide the sub-network in this way are called the subnet mask.

Gateway

A junction point where different types of networks are connected to each other.

It is used to refer to the hardware and software which is used when connecting a particular network to another network which has been set up under different network specifications. It makes adjustments for differences in the protocols used by the two networks and makes it possible to connect to other networks.

DHCP

Abbreviation for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A function which automatically assigns IP addresses to each computer that is connected to a network. If a device which functions as a DHCP server is located within a LAN, this device automatically assigns IP addresses to computers which are connected to the LAN. Not available with this product.

Ad Hoc Mode

A mode for direct communication between the projector and a computer with an optional wireless card.

Infrastructure Mode

A mode for communication via an access point which is connected to a wired LAN.

A computer without an optional wireless card can still be used to send images to the projector via an access point.

Access Point

A point of connection between a wired LAN and a wireless LAN.

127

Channel

If several access points which use the same frequency band are located near each other, radio transmission interference between these access point can occur when they are being used, and this can in turn result in drops in transmission speeds. In order to reduce this problem when using wireless LANs, the frequency band can be divided into 11 channels for communication purposes. (The number of channels varies depending on the country.) However, because interference between adjacent channels can occur, the channels available for use are normally spaced 2 or 3 channels apart from each other.

SSID

Abbreviation for Service Set ID. Wireless LANs that utilise access points require the setting of SSID identification codes in order to distinguish between devices which are a part of the LAN and devices which are not.

Wireless LAN cards of some manufacturers use the name of “ESSID” or “Network name” instead of SSID.

WEP

Abbreviation for Wired Equivalent Privacy. A method of encrypting transmitted data.

An encryption key is generated and is given only to the person who will be using the transmitted data, in order to prevent third parties from decoding the transmitted data.

Not available with this product.

JPEG

Abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPEG is the name of an international organisation which was jointly established by the ISO and the ITU-TS

(formerly the CCIT), but the term is normally used to refer to the specifications for the still picture compression algorithm which was formulated by the JPEG. This algorithm allows still images such as photographs, single frames of moving images and scanned images to be compressed to up to 1/100th of their original sizes. However, images which are compressed in this way cannot be fully restored to their original quality (some deterioration in quality occurs), so that compression rates of 1/5 to 1/30 are normally used. Because of differences in color separation, two format sub-types are used: RGB (red, green and blue) and CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black).

The projector and the Image Creator 1.0 software do not support the CMYK sub-type of JPEG file.

BMP

Abbreviation for BitMaP. This is the standard image format for the bitmapped files

(image files consisting of a collection of dots) which are handled by Windows.

Color levels of monochrome, 16 colors, 256 colors and 16.7 million colors are supported.

PNG

Abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics.

A high compression rate file format that provides restorable compression for line raster images.

Because it uses restorable compression, it does not result in any loss of image resolution unlike JPEG.

128

RLE

Abbreviation for Run Length Encoding. It can be used to achieve high rates of compression for image files which contain large areas of a single color. RLE can be used with monochrome, 16-color and 256-color BMP image files. (Image Creator 1.0

does not support files compressed using RLE.)

TIFF

Abbreviation for Tagged-Image File Format. This type of file is used to exchange documents between computers. Color levels of monochrome, 256 colors and 16.7

million colors are supported. TIFF files in 16.7 million color format can include transparent color.

LZW

Abbreviation for Lempel-Ziv-Welch. LZW is a compression method used for TIFF files, and is named thus because it was developed by three people named Lempel,

Ziv and Welch. It compresses the files by converting patterns within the images into short codes. There is no deterioration in image quality resulting from compression, but high rates of compression which are comparable to JPEG files cannot be expected to be obtained. (Image Creator 1.0 does not support files compressed using

LZW.)

DCF

Abbreviation for Design rule for Camera File system. DCF is a standard which was established by the Japan Electronic Industry Development Association (JEIDA) with the aim of realising a common image file format, directory name format and file name format for the images used with digital still cameras. It is based on recommendations such as Exif Version 2.1.

Exif 2.1

Abbreviation for Exchangeable Image File Format. This is an image file format which was established by the Japan Electronic Industry Development Association (JEIDA).

It defines the common information format and range of application for images used with digital still cameras, centring around TIFF and JPEG-format images. Version 2.1

is the latest version of the Exif standard.

PowerPoint

Application software for creating presentations which is included as part of Microsoft

Office. 95, 97, 2000 and 2002 versions are available, but the Image Creator 1.0

software which is bundled with the projector is only compatible with the 97, 2000 and

2002 versions.
