SRX Controller
The SRX Controller application exercises direct control
over the projector via the projector’s serial control port.
Operations using the SRX Controller can be in conflict
with operations using the Projectionist Terminal or the
SMS Controller. The SRX Controller application should
not be used at the same time the Projectionist Terminal or
SMS Controller is in operation. Once changes using the
SRX Controller are completed, refresh the SMS Server
stored Projector data.
Network Data Storage
When the Network Data Storage system for the facility
uses Microsoft Windows as the operating system it is
recommended that you use Network Files System (NFS)
for optimum performance in accessing files across the
network. Alternatively, SAMBA may be used for
connectivity between the SMS Server and the network
storage computer. SAMBA is a suite of applications that
provides seamless file sharing services to SMB/CIFS
clients, i.e., to Microsoft Windows.
If connectivity to the Network Data Storage is lost the
following steps should be taken.
• Verify the Network Data Storage system is working.
If connectivity issues still cannot be resolved it may be
necessary to remove and re-create the Network Storage
locations using the SMS Controller application. See
Settings/Folders on the SMS Controller for more
information.
If you are still unable to establish connectivity with the
Network Data Storage system, execute a system Power
OFF/ON. This will require Initializing Security.

Add Start Offset (Virtual Black Leader)
In film, black leader is used to provide a brief interval
between different content. This often is used simply to
provide pacing to the sequence of content being presented,
e.g., between trailers or between the last trailer and the
feature start.
In Digital Cinema, “black” can be either the absence of the
playback of any Content (virtual black3) during
presentation or it can be actual black content supplied as a
CPL included in the DCP. Virtual Black is realized by
creating a Start Offset for the following Content Element.
When creating a Start Offset, provision is made for
establishing a duration of the of the offset. When Black is
actual content, its duration is of a predetermined length and
the Content Type should be “transitional4”.

Douse the Projector
The DOUSER control function in the PROJECTOR
CONTROL screen serves the same purpose as the
“douser” on the film projector. In fact it works in much the
same way by placing an opaque blade in the output light
path.
When you set the projector DOUSER to CLOSE the
auditorium screen goes dark. However, this only applies to
the image portion of the presentation. The audio portion of
the presentation continues and must be muted using the
separate Audio Muting control.
DOUSER Control
Change Projector Function
The AUDIO MUTING control function in the
PROJECTOR CONTROL screen causes the sound output
from the Auditorium Unit to be silenced.
Changing the Current FUNCTION selection (F1 to F20) is
done using Change FUNCTION on the PROJECTOR
CONTROL screen. Functions can be used to recall stored
settings which affect the projector setup. Each
FUNCTION configuration is set using the SRX
Controller1 application and is set to optimize the on-screen
presentation. In addition, a limited number of settings
associated with a specific FUNCTION can be configured
using the FUNCTION SETUP screen (see page 39).
When you set the AUDIO MUTING to ON the sound to
the auditorium is silenced. However, this only applies to
the sound portion of the presentation. The image portion of
the presentation continues and must be Doused using the
DOUSER control.

Audio Muting ON (Silence)
The Audio Muting control is an alternate action button
whose current state is indicated by the status label and a
status indicator in the OFF/ON button. When the control’s
status indicator is out (label shows OFF) the audio output
is enabled and the current presentation sound is available
in the auditorium.
To silence the audio output, tap Menu,
tap Projector, tap Projector Control and
then, in the AUDIO MUTING block, tap
the alternate action OFF/ON button. The sound output is
silenced, the auditorium is silenced, and the control button
label changes to ON and its status indicator is lit (see inset
in illustration). The audio output is muted, regardless of
the current presentation status.
Audio Muting OFF (Sound ON)
Audio Muting is activated by an alternate action control
button whose current state is indicated by the status
indicator located in the ON/OFF button. When the
indicator is illuminated (label shows ON) the sound output
is silenced.
To restore the sound output, tap Menu,
tap Projector, tap Projector Control and

This control is via the serial connector located on the rear
panel of the projector just below the circuit breakers. When
adjustments are made using the SRX Controller the
changes and settings are not automatically transferred to

setting was changed with the SRC Controller, this will not
be detected by the SMS Server. If the SRX Controller was
used for maintenance purposes or similar, and any change
was made to the projector settings, the SMS Server data
must be refreshed manually.

Lamp Information
Every lamp is identified by a unique 16 digit Serial Code
that includes the manufacturer id, lamp power (min./max.
range), and the individual lamp serial number.
Lamp Serial Code
LAMP INFORMATION
The Luminance Adjustment process uses an internal photo
sensor which measures the lamp’s brightness while
adjusting the Lamp Power across the Lamp Power range
(50~100) as indicated in the lamp’s Serial Code. A
brightness vs. lamp power table is created. This table is
used as a reference (for adjusting lamp power) to maintain
the lamp brightness value stored in the FUNCTION.
Lamp Serial No.
Drive Elec Power (max)
The Serial Number of the currently installed Lamp and the
Drive Elec. Power (max) is shown in LAMP
INFORMATION. A new Lamp Serial Code is entered
during the Lamp replacement process using the SRX
Controller application or the Installer screen (Role
restricted). When the Serial Code of the new lamp has been
entered, the accumulated lamp usage time is automatically
reset to “0”, and the count will restart from the replacement
point. The replacement date is also set (see “Lamp Status”
on page 49).
Luminance Adjustment
Projector maintenance may require the re-calibration of
Luminance.
LUMINANCE ADJUSTEMENT
Chapter 1 User Guide
Adjust (Luminance Calibration)
The SRX-R320 Projector includes a Lamp Control Mode
feature which, when enabled1 using the SRX Control
application, maintains a nearly constant screen luminance
as the lamp ages and the bulb brightness vs. lamp power
applied is reduced. During the lamp replacement
procedure, lamp positioning is optimized. In addition, a
lamp brightness (luminance) vs. Lamp Power table is
created.
Note
The Luminance Adjustment process takes some time to
complete and should not be undertaken without an
understanding of the process. Normally it is done when the
lamp is replaced and periodically to insure correct tracking
of lamp brightness, i.e., screen luminance, vs. lamp power.
Essentially, the process steps the Lamp Power from the
minimum bulb rated setting to the maximum bulb rated
setting and measures the photocell detected brightness.
The results are saved in a table located in the Projector.
To initiate the Luminance
Adjustment process, tap Menu,
tap Maintenance, tap Projector,
and then tap Adjust in the
Luminance Adjustment group. A
confirmation message appears. Tap YES to continue or tap
NO to abandon the process.
Luminance calibration has only a relative impact on the
actual screen luminance based on the value stored in a
FUNCTION. This stored value is returned by the photocell
sampling the bulb brightness to realize the desired value,
e.g., 14ft-L, and stored in a specific labelled FUNCTION
such as “CinemaScope® 14ft-L”. The Luminance
Adjustment process is done to insure that a brightness vs.
Lamp Power relationship is known to the Projector
subsystem.
Adjust
1.This function is only available when the Lamp Control
Mode of the projector is set to “Luminance”. Because the
default Lamp Control Mode setting is “Lamp Power”, take

Caution
In the SRX-R320 based Auditorium Unit, (AC-mains)
Power to the projector subsystem coming from the
distribution panel is routed through circuit breakers
located on the rear panel of the Auditorium Unit.
Appropriate precautions should be taken when working in
and around the system as other power in the Auditorium
Unit is not controlled by these rear panel circuit breakers.
Power to critical devices contained in the Auditorium Unit
enclosure is supported by an internal UPS and power may
still be present for a period of time even when AC-mains
have been removed or turned off at the distribution panel.
Chapter 1 User Guide
To return the Auditorium Unit to an operational state,
restore AC-mains power to the system.
Shutdown for the SRX-R320 based projection system
takes into account continuing cooling for the Lamp after it
has been set to OFF and to insure that the subsystems
responsible for content storage and system control are
properly cycled to a power off state. This process is
managed by the SMS Server and is triggered by the
removal of single-phase AC-mains power from the
Auditorium Unit.
Initiate System Shutdown
To shutdown the Auditorium Unit execute the following
steps:
Login to the Projectionist Terminal and review the various
status screens. The Projector remains in STANDBY mode
and the Lamp is not illuminated even if the LAMP circuit
breaker is set to ON.
