Eye Safety Warnings
▀■
Avoid staring directly into the projector beam at all times.
▀■
Minimize standing facing into the beam. Keep your back to
the beam as much as possible.
▀■ A stick or laser pointer is recommended to avoid the need for
the user to enter the beam.
▀■ Ensure that projectors are located out of the line of sight from
the screen to the audience; this ensures that, when presenters
look at the audience, they do not also have to stare at the projector lamp. The best way to achieve this is by ceiling-mounting rather than floor or table-mounting the projector.
▀■ When projector is used in a classroom, adequately supervise
students when they are asked to point out something on the
screen.
▀■ In order to minimize the lamp power needed, use room blinds
to reduce ambient light levels.

Usage Notice
Recommendations
To unleash the performance of the HD81, it is best to input video
content in its original form without any processing. This will utilize
the full capabilities of the HD81 for de-interlacing, scaling and image enhancement. As an example, if a user has an HDMI DVD player
capable of outputting the video signal in a 480i/576i digital format, we
recommend feeding it directly to the HD81 without any processing by
the DVD player. This will provide the HD81 with the original digital
video stream and allow the HD81 to fully unleash its studio grade
video processing.
In general, we recommend the following:
If possible, use digital output (DVD, D-VHS, DTV setup box, etc). If
there is no digital output, use the component output terminals (YPbPr)
with short and high-quality components cables.
If you are unsure of the quality of the internal de-interlacing or scaler
of your video source, let HD81 do the processing by connecting to the
interlaced component output.
If possible, leave out any extra video processing in your video source
(DVD, D-VHS, and HDTV STB).
Some HDTV STB models have scaling conversion that will output
1080i from a 720p format. Try to output 1080i in its native signal format and let HD81 perform deinterlacing and scaling.
Not all HDMI DVD players have a digital interlaced output
(480i/576i). For these products, it is suggested that users try 480p/576p
first, followed by 720p and 1080i. After viewing the full range of output resolutions, the user can then judge which is the best image quality
and set the HD81 for that resolution.
Many high-end analog output DVD players also come with high quality DAC with 12 or 14 bits of processing.
Again, the users should try setting their 480i/576i output to HD81 first.
HD81 has BNC connectors for component video input. If the user
plans to use analog component to connect to their video source, for the
best image quality, it is recommend using the BNC connectors.
For connecting to Laser Disc player or S-VHS deck, we suggest to use
S-video output connection to connect to HD81.
It is best to have a separate power outlet for audio and video equipment.

2) Attach an HDMI cable to the “To AV Receiver” port on the back of the
HD81’s Video Box. Connect the other end to your AV Receiver. This will
allow the audio signal to be controlled by the AV Receiver.
3) Attach a 2nd HDMI cable to the AV out port on the back of the AV Receiver.
Connect the other end to the “From AV Receiver” on the back of the HD81’s
Video Box. This will return the video signal in a “pass through” mode.
4) Connect an HDMI Cable to the “To Projector” on the back of the HD81’s Box
side. Connect the other end to HD81’s projector side.
18
Option 2
Using HD81 as video source selector and directly connecting the
video source to the AV Receiver:
If you do not have an HDMI equipped AV receiver, to ensure proper audio
connections, you will need to directly connect the Audio out from the
Video source to your receiver. The HD81 will be used only to process the
Video signals.
1) Connect the video sources to the HD81’s Video Box.
2) Connect the video sources audio out directly to your receiver.
3) Attach the short HDMI cable that comes standard with the unit to the “To
AV Receiver” port on the back of the HD81’s Video Box. Connect the other
end to the “From AV Receiver” port on the back of the HD81’s Video Box.
This will allow the video signal to be properly managed.
4) Connect an HDMI Cable to the “To Projector” on the back of the HD81’s Box
side. Connect the other end to HD81’s projector side.
Option 3
If you have a single HDMI source, you can hook the Video source
directly up to the “From AV Receiver” port on the back of the HD81’s
Video Box. Connect a second HDMI cable to the “To Projector” port on
the back of the HD81’s Video Box and attach the other end to HD81’s
Projector side.

Format
Use this function to choose your desired aspect ratio.
▪ To match the input image to the correct aspect ratio, six modes can be
selected: 16:9, 4:3, Native, LBX, Format 1, Format 2.
▪ Default modes are 16:9, 4:3, Native and LBX.
 4:3: This format is for 4x3 input sources not enhanced for Widescreen TV.
 16:9: This format is for 16x9 input sources, like HDTV and DVD
enhanced for Widescreen TV.
 Native: This format displays the original image without any scaling.
 LBX: This format is for non-16x9, letterbox source and for users
who use external 16x9 lens to display 2.35:1 aspect ratio using
full resolution.
Detail informations about LBX mode :
1) Some Letter-Box DVD contents are not enhanced for 16x9 TV,
then image will not look right in 16:9 display.
One can use 4:3 mode to view the correct info.
But if the content itself is not 4:3, it will have black bars around
the image in a 16:9 display. For this kind of content, you can use
LBX mode to fill the image in the 16x9 display as much as possible.
2) If you use an external 16x9 lens, this LBX mode also allows you
to watch a 2.35:1 content (include Anamorphic DVD and HDTV
film source) that support anamorphic wide is enhanced for 16x9
Display in a wide 2.35:1 image.
In this case, there are no black bars, the full lamp power and
vertical resolution is fully utilized for maximum viewing effects.
Other than these two occasions, one should stay with 16:9 and
4:3 modes for most viewing experiences.
