Keystone correction
If projector and screen are not properly placed, the picture will be distorted, producing a
keystoned image (picture top width larger than picture bottom width or vice versa). When a
keystoned image occurs the image ratio (4:3, 16:9) will still be guaranteed.This is especially
important when the projector is being used together with an ‘intelligent whiteboard’.
‘Keystone correction’ allows you to correct picture distortion of the vertical keystone type by
internal scaling.This correction function is accessible through the ‘Keystone Correction’ option in
the ‘Settings’ menu of the On Screen Display (OSD) menu.
Moving/transporting the
projector
Preparation
1 Press the Standby button twice to put the projector in Power/Standby.
– The Standby indicator starts blinking orange.
2 Wait until the cooling fan has stopped (about 3 minutes after the projector has been put in
Standby) and disconnect the mains lead and all other cables.
3 Put the lens cap back in place to prevent dust, dirt or other contamination from harming or
damaging the front of the projector lens when moving the projector.
Never place the projector on the side where the connections are located.
Note
Moving/transporting the projector
The projector contains many glass and precision parts. If you need to transport the projector,
please follow these packing instructions to pervent accidental damage to the projector.
• When you are hand-carrying the projector, be sure to use a carrying case like the optional
softbag.
• When shipping the projector, use the original packaging material if possible. If you do not
have the original packaging, use equivalent materials, placing plenty of cushioning around the
projector.
• When transporting the projector as freight or checked luggage, first put it in a carrying case,
then pack it in a firm box, using cushioning around the case.
