NOTE:

• You can tilt the projector body less than approximately ±30 ° vertically and ±10 ° horizontally.

A translucent screen is required for rear projection.

When mounting the projector on the ceiling, the optional ceiling mount bracket (ET-PKE2000, ET-PKE1000S) is required.

See “Ceiling mount bracket safeguards” in “Technical Information” of the operating instructions.

Front leg adjusters and throwing angle

You can screw up/down the front leg adjusters to control the angle of the projector for adjusting the throwing angle.

See “Positioning the image” on page 12.

NOTE:

Heated air comes out of the air exhaust port. Do not touch the air exhaust port directly.

If keystone distortion occurs, see “KEYSTONE” on page 34.

Screw up the front leg adjusters, and an audible click will be heard as the limit.

Before connecting to the projector

Read and follow the operating and connecting instructions of each peripheral device.

The peripheral devices must be turned off.

Use cables that match each peripheral device to be connected.

Confirm the type of video signals. See “List of compatible signals” in “Technical Information” of the operating instructions.

Audio cables must be connected from each peripheral device directly to the audio reproduction system.

NOTE:

Make sure the HDMI cable is adapted to your HDMI device for proper performance.

A compatible cable is required for an HDMI 1 080p signal.

It is possible to connect with DVI devices via a HDMI/DVI conversion adapter, but some equipment may not project the image properly or other problems could be encountered.

Please tighten securely, fixing the screws on the connectors (D-SUB 15-pin) of the RGB signal cable.

VIERA Link™ Connection

VIERA Link “HDAVI Control™”

Connections to the equipment (DIGA Recorder, HD Camcorder, Player theater, Amplifier, etc.) with HDMI cables allow you to interface them automatically.

These features are limited to models incorporating “HDAVI Control” and “VIERA Link”.

Some functions are not available depending on the equipment’s version of HDAVI Control.

Please confirm the connected equipment’s version of HDAVI Control.

But some functions will not be able to perform even if the versions are the same.

VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”, based on the control functions provided by HDMI which is an industry standard known as HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), is a unique function that we have developed and added.

As such, its operation with other manufacturers’ equipment that supports HDMI CEC cannot be guaranteed.

Please refer to individual manuals for other manufacturers’ equipment supporting Link function.

About applicable Panasonic equipment, consult your local Panasonic dealer.
