Ceiling mounting the projector
We want you to have a pleasant experience using your BenQ projector, so we need to
bring this safety matter to your attention to prevent possible damage to person and
property.
If you intend to mount your projector on the ceiling, we strongly recommend that you
use a proper fitting BenQ projector ceiling mount kit and that you ensure it is securely
and safely installed.
If you use a non-BenQ brand projector ceiling mount kit, there is a safety risk that the
projector may fall from the ceiling due to an improper attachment through the use of
the wrong gauge or length screws.
You can purchase a BenQ projector ceiling mount kit from the place you purchased
your BenQ projector. BenQ recommends that you also purchase a separate Kensington
lock compatible security cable and attach it securely to both the Kensington lock slot
on the projector and the base of the ceiling mount bracket. This will perform the
secondary role of restraining the projector should its attachment to the mounting
bracket become loose.

Introduction
Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power
outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your
equipment.
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1.
Front Table
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor in front of the screen. This is the most common way
to position the projector for quick setup and portability.
2.
Front Ceiling
Select this location with the projector suspended upsidedown from the ceiling in front of the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit from
your dealer to mount your projector on the ceiling.
Set Front Ceiling in the SYSTEM SETUP > Projector
Position menu after you turn the projector on.
3.
Rear Table
Select this location with the projector placed near the
floor behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
Set Rear Table in the SYSTEM SETUP > Projector
Position menu after you turn the projector on.
4.
Rear Ceiling
Select this location with the projector suspended upsidedown from the ceiling behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen and the BenQ
Projector Ceiling Mounting Kit are required for this
installation location.
Set Rear Ceiling in the SYSTEM SETUP > Projector
Position menu after you turn the projector on.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power
outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your
equipment.
Positioning your projector
15
Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting (if available), and the
video format each factors in the projected image size.
16:9 is the native aspect ratio of this projector.
4:3 aspect image in a 16:9
aspect display area
16:9 aspect image scaled to a 4:3 aspect
display area
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and positioned
directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the screen. This
prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto angled surfaces).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down so that it projects
at a slightly downward angle.
You can see from the diagram on page 18, that this type of projection causes the bottom edge
of the projected image to be vertically offset from the horizontal plane of the projector.
When ceiling mounted, this refers to the top edge of the projected image.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for
both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly
proportional to the projection distance.
BenQ has provided a table of screen sizes to assist you in determining the ideal location for
your projector. There are two dimensions to consider, the perpendicular horizontal distance
from the center of the screen (projection distance), and the vertical offset height of the
projector from the horizontal edge of the screen (offset).
16
Positioning your projector
How to determine the position of the projector for a given
screen size
1.
2.
Select your screen size.
Refer to the table on page 18 and find the closest match to your screen size in the left
columns labelled "Screen size". Using this value, look across this row to the right to
find the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column labelled
"Average". This is the projection distance.
3.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical
offset (mm)" value. This will determine the final vertical offset placement of the
projector in relation to the edge of the screen.
4.
The recommended position for the projector is aligned perpendicular to the
horizontal center of the screen, at the distance from the screen determined in step 2
above, and offset by the value determined in step 3 above.
For example, if you are using a 120-inch screen, the average projection distance is 4710 mm
and with a vertical offset of 513 mm.
How to determine the recommended screen size for a
given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and would
like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
2.
Refer to the table on page 18 and find the closest match to your measurement in the
average distance from screen column labelled "Average". Check that your measured
distance is between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average
distance value.
3.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding "Screen size"
listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that projection
distance.
4.
On that same row, look across to the right column and make note of the "Vertical
offset (mm)" value. This will determine the final placement of the screen in relation to
the horizontal plane of the projector.
For example, if your measured projection distance was 4.0 m (4000 mm), the closest match
in the "Average" column is 3920 mm. Looking across this row shows that a 100-inch screen is
required.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended), you will have to tilt
it down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations, some image distortion
will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the distortion. See "Correcting keystone" on
page 24 for details.

There is 3% tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. BenQ
recommends that if you intend to permanently install the projector, you should physically test
the projection size and distance using the actual projector in situ before you permanently
install it, so as to make allowance for this projector's optical characteristics. This will help you
determine the exact mounting position so that it best suits your installation location.

3D Color Management
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in
classroom, meeting room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where
building external windows allow daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture
theaters, or home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management
provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction,
should you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing
conditions. You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of
suitable source images to measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with the
projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with suitable
guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.
The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted. When you
select each color, you can independently adjust its range and saturation according to your
preference.
If you have purchased a test disc which contains various color test patterns and can be used
to test the color presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc. You can project any image

Accessibility Requirements for Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section
508
BenQ’’s commitment to accessible products allows us to support government in making
accessible technology choices BenQ’’s LCD monitors and projectors are compliant with
Section 508 guidelines by including the assistive features as below:
64
••
BenQ’’s monitors have colored ““Power”” indicators. While the indicator shows green, it means that
the monitor is using the full power. While the indicator shows yellow or amber, it means that the
monitor is in suspend or sleep mode and is using less than 2 watts of electricity.
••
BenQ’’s monitors have a variety of settings of pre-programmed flicker-free timing to make the
screen shown on the monitor readily accessible. The default timing setting is automatically turned
on every time the monitor is powered up, and thus reduces the hassle of user intervention.
••
BenQ’’s monitors and projectors have options for brightness and contrast adjustments that text
and images could be displayed differently to meet the demands of the visually impaired. Other
similar adjustments are also available by using the On-Screen Display (OSD) controls on the
products.
••
BenQ’’s monitors and projectors include user-selectable color controls, such as color temperature
selections (Monitor: 5800K, 6500K and 9300K, Projector: 5500K, 6500K, 7500K and 9300K), with
a wide range of contrast levels.
••
BenQ’’s multimedia monitors and projectors usually have one or two speakers for audio
performance which allow users (including hearing impaired) to interact with the computer
systems connected. Speaker controls are typically located on the front-panel.
••
Firmware of BenQ’’s monitors and projectors contain unique product information that helps
computer systems to identify BenQ products and activate their Plug-and-Play function when
connected.
••
All BenQ’’s monitors and projectors are compatible with the PC99 standard. For example,
connectors are color-coded to help users easily connecting products to computer systems
correctly.
••
Some models of BenQ’’s monitors and projectors contain additional USB and DVI ports for
connection to more devices such as a special headphone to assist the hearing impaired.
••
All BenQ monitors and projectors come with user manuals on compact discs which could be
easily read by commercial software such as Adobe Reader via a connected computer system.
These documents are also available on the BenQ’’s web site (www.BenQ.com <http://
www.BenQ.com>). Other types of documents may be available upon requests.
••
BenQ’’s customer service provides answers and assistance to all our customers through phone
calls, facsimiles, e-mails, or web sites.
Regulation statements
••
The mains lead (power cable) on the Projector comes with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse.
••
The rating of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse
approved by ASTA or BSI to BS 1362 of the same rating must be used.
••
If the plug has a detachable fuse cover, remember to place the fuse cover back if you need to
change the fuse.
••
Do NOT use a plug without the fuse cover. If the fuse cover is missing, contact your nearest
BenQ Customer Service Center for assistance.
