What is the SD memory card?
The SD memory card is a semiconductor memory which at 24 mm x 32 MM x 2.1 mmis
about the size of a postage stamp. It is a next-generation recording medium which can be
use instead of conventional storage devices such as MDs (mini discs), CDs (compact
discs) and cassette tapes. In addition, it allows data to be repeatedly recorded, played and
erased. The SD memory card can be used to store computer image files, video images
(still pictures) and presentations created using Microsoft PowerPoint which have been
converted into JPEG images using the accessory JPEG Converter software, letting you
make "PC-free" presentations using just the LCD projector.

Explanation of terms
Following are definitions for some of the terms used throughout these Operating Instructions.
PowerPoint
Application software for creating presen-
tations which is included as part of
Microsoft Office. 95, 97 and 2000 ver-
sions are available, but the JPEG
Convertor software which is bundled with
the projector is only compatible with the
97 and 2000 versions.
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 specifica-
tions 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 JPEG Convertor
software do not support the CMYK sub-
type of JPEG file.
BMP
Abbreviation for BitMaP. This is the
standard image format for the bitnapped
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.
RLE
Abbreviation for Run Length Encoding. lt
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. (JPEG
Convertor does not support files com-
pressed using RLE.)
TIFF
Abbreviation for Tagged-Image File
Format. This type of file is used to
exchange documents between comput-
ers. Color levels of monochrome, 256
colors and 16.7 million colors are sup-
ported. 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. (JPEG Convertor 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. lt 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 informa-
tion 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.

Capturing projected images onto the
SD memory card
It is possible to capture images which are being projected from a source such
as a connected computer or VCR, and save these captured images onto the
SD memory card which has been inserted into the SD memory card slot of the
projector. Images can be captured in one of two ways: by using menu screen
operations (used principally for still images), or by using the FREEZE button on
the remote control unit (used principally for moving images). YPBPR signals and
video signals which include copy-protection signals cannot be captured.

(1) Open the drive icon for the SD memory card, press the "€ 38" and
"N" keys to create a new folder (directory), and rename the directory
to "DCIM".
If you have already used SD memory card to capture images by the
projector, or if the SD memory card already contains files which were
photographed by a DCF-compliant digital camera, the "DCIF" directory will
already exist, and there is no need to create a new directory.
17
@ Open the "DCIM" directory which has been created, press the "@ 38"
and "N" keys to create a new folder (directory), and change the name
of the directory to a name that conforms to the DCF standard
(example: 100abcde).
In the same way as in step (1) above, an existing directory which is al-
ready DCF-compliant can be used.
(3) Drag and drop the JPEG file you would like to save into the directory.
The file will be copied into the directory. (The original file will not be de-
leted from the Macintosh.)
(4) Change the name of the copied file to a name which is DCF-
compliant (example: abcd0001.ipg).
After the file copying is complete, take the SD memory card out of the
Macintosh by following the steps below and then insert it into the projector
to play back the file.
Removing the SD memory card
Remove the SD memory card from the Macintosh by following the steps
below. Close all applications which are using the SD memory card.
(1) Drag the drive icon for the SD memory card on the Desktop to the
Trash, and take out the PC card adapter.
(2) Press the eject button on the PC card
adapter and take out the SD memory
card.

DCF standard
This projector can only play back image files which comply with the DCF specification.
The DCF specification imposes the following conditions. Image files or directories which
do not conform to these conditions cannot be recognised by the projector.
Limits on directory names
Directories must be created as sub-directories of the DCIM directory on
the SD memory card.
e Data which is contained within any directory other than the DCIM directory
cannot be recognised.
Directory names must consist of three numerals (directory number)
followed by five alphanumeric characters. (Example: 100abcde)
® The three numerals must make up a number between 100 and 999, and
the alphanumeric characters can be taken from the following set of 37
characters: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopgrstuvwxyz_ (No distinction is
made between upper-case and lower-case alphabetic characters. Double-
byte characters cannot be used.
Multiple directories using the same three-digit combination (directory
number) cannot be created.
e For example, if two directories exist named "100abcde” and "100fghij"
respectively, the projector cannot recognise them normally.
Directory sub-hierarchies are not supported.
e For example, if a directory called "323fghij" is created as a sub-directory of the
"102abcde" directory, the projector will not be able to recognise the sub- directory.
File names
File names must consist of four alphanumeric characters followed by
four numerals (file number), followed by ".jpg". (Example: abcd0001.jpg)
® The four numerals must make up a number between 0001 and 9999, and
the alphanumeric characters can be taken from the following set of 37
characters: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopgrstuvwxyz_ (No distinction is
made between upper-case and lower-case alphabetic characters. Double-
byte characters cannot be used.
Multiple file names using the same four-digit combination (file number)
cannot be created.
® For example, if two files exist named "abcd0001.jpg" and "efgh0001.jpg"
respectively, the projector cannot recognise them normally.
File format
e Only JPEG image files which comply with the Exif 2.1 standard are
recognised.

Importing presentation files created using
Microsoft PowerPoint
(1) Check the size in the Slide size
drop-down list box.
The projector can project JPEG images
which are of XGA size, so Slide size
should be set to "XGA (1024 x 768)".

Note
e |f Slide size is set to SXGA size,
you can create JPEG files with the
maximum quality, but they will be
converted to XGA size when they
are projected by the projector.
Furthermore, the file size will also
become bigger. (This will reduce
the number of images which can
be stored on a single SD memory
card.) In addition, Slide size can be
set to SVGA size to reduce the file
size, but when such images are
projected by the projector, they will
be increased to XGA size, resulting
in losses in picture quality.
@ Click Import Slide, and then select
the presentation file to import.
An Open window such as the one
shown in the illustration will
appear. Use the drop-down list
box or double-click the folder
icons to navigate to the location
of the presentation file to be
converted, and then select the file
to be converted and click Open.
Note:
e Only presentation files which are in
PPT format (which have a .ppt
extension) can be imported. For files in
other formats (such as those with .pps
extensions), open the file in PowerPoint
and re-save it in PPT format.
@ An import window such as the
one in the illustration will appear.
If you wish to import all slides in
the presentation, click Import All.
2001 New Products Review
If you wish to import selected slides,
click Prev Slide or Next Slide to
display a slide you wish to import,
and then click Import. When the
import is finished, click Cancel/Exit.
Note:
® The imported slides will be con-
verted to an aspect ratio of 4:3. It
IS not recommended that you
import slides which do not have a
4:3 aspect ratio, as the image may
not reproduce correctly.
If you wish to cancel the import
after clicking Import All, click
Cancel/Exit.
An error may occur when the files
are converted on a computer
which has PowerPoint 97 in-
stalled. If this happens, the error
may disappear if the files are
converted on a computer which
has PowerPoint 2000 installed.

Conversion settings for saving images
The conversion settings to be used when saving images onto the SD memory
card or into other folders can be set using the Preferences dialog box which
appears when Preferences is selected from the Setting menu, or using the
Picture quality slider in the main application window.
Save as DCF check box
If this check box is selected, the file
name and folder name will be con-
verted to DCF format (refer to page
19) when the file is saved.
AGA (1024 x 766] (œil
If this check box is not selected, the
file will be saved with the file name
which appears below the image in
the thumbnail screen.
Note:
e When saving the image onto an
SD memory card, the format will
automatically be converted to DCF.
Prepare thumbnail check box
If this check box is selected, a
thumbnail image will be created and
embedded in the JPEG file when the
file is saved.
Note:
e When saving the image onto an
SD memory card, thumbnail
images will be created automati-
cally regardless of this check box
setting.
Save as different size check box
If this check box is selected, the file
Will be converted to the size speci-
fied in the Converted size list box
when the file is saved.
Note:
e When converting from PowerPoint
presentation files, the file will be
saved at the same size which was
set at the time of importing, regard-
less of this check box setting.
Converted size list box
The projector can project JPEG
images which are of XGA size, so
Converted size should be set to "XGA
(1024 x 768)". If the Save as different
size check box is not selected, the
Converted size setting will be ignored.
Picture quality slider
Picture quality
Loy High
This adjusts the image quality (com-
pression rate) for JPEG images when
they are being saved using the Save to
SD Memory Card and Save to other
folder commands. If a higher image
quality is selected, the resulting file size
will be greater, and if a lower quality is
selected, the resulting file size will be
smaller (about 1/5 the size compared to
when high quality is selected).
Note:
e JPEG is an effective compression
method for natural images such as
photographs. Presentations
created using PowerPoint and
illustrations created using graphics
programs may show some dete-
rioration in image quality even if a
high-quality setting is used.

Saving imported images onto the SD
memory card
Once the images have been im-
ported and sorted, you then need to
save them onto the SD memory

switch on the SD memory card is
not at the LOCK position.
@ Click Save to SD memory card.
@ Select the destination drive
and directory in the Save into
SD Memory Card window.

thermore, you can use the
direction keys (8) next to the
destination directory number to
select the desired directory
number. (The directory number
will be set automatically to an
unused number.) Furthermore,
you can also use the numeric
keys to enter a directory number
directly, but be sure to enter a
number between 100 and 999.

When images are being played back, this
sets the time interval for projecting a single
image before switching to the next image. It
can be set to between 5 and 60 seconds, in
steps of 5 seconds. If set to "OFF", auto-
matic switching of images is not carried out.
Note:
® The setting time is a guide only. Actual playback times will vary according
to the sizes of the images.
Automatic looping (AUTO LOOP)
If AUTO LOOP is set to ON when a time for automatic switching of images
has been set using the above item, once the last image in a directory has
been played back, playback automatically returns to the first image in the
directory.

Note:
e Each directory must contain a minimum of one JPEG image file that can
be recognised by the projector. An image cannot be deleted if it is the only
image in a directory.
Keystone correction in CARD mode
When the projector is in CARD mode, the MAIN MENU screen will not be
displayed. This means that the menu cannot be used to make keystone
correction settings, but automatic keystone correction can still be carried out
by pressing the AUTO SETUP button. However, if "AUTO KEYSTN" in the
OPTION menu is set to "OFF", the automatic setup function will not operate.
Note:
e In any other mode (RGB1, RGB2, VIDEO or S-VIDEO), the MAIN MENU
screen will be displayed, so keystone correction can be carried out in
these modes. If keystone correction is carried out in some other mode,
there is no need to do it again in CARD mode.
