Before Operation
Features
This unit is equipped with the network
presentation and control function.
Any image of a computer, if it is connected
to a LAN by wired or wireless connection,
can be projected by connecting a network
cable to the NETWORK connector (RJ45)
of the projector.
Operations such as power on/off or input
selection of the projector or confirmation of
the situation of the projector such as lamp
used time is possible far from the projector.
Easy installation
For using the network presentation function,
install the application software, Projector
Station for Air Shot Version 2, in the
computer. The installation can be done
easily in accordance with the instructions on
the screen by using the supplied CD-ROM.
Speedy and high quality
transportation/display
The image data is efficiently compressed so
that a high-quality image can be transported
speedily. An animation function can be used
at a presentation by the transportation. (It is
not suitable for a movie such as a DVD.)
Multiple connections
A maximum of 5 projectors can be
connected to one computer without using a
distributor and an image can be projected on
the projectors at the same time.
Control by using Web browser
You can control the projector and confirm its
setting.
Status check and system extension
by network
Power on/off, input selection, confirmation,
etc. of the projector can be done from the
computer connected to LAN by wired or
wireless connection. The network function
also provides mail report function to notify
lamp replacement timing and error
information to a previously-registered mail
address. It also supports SNMP.
Number of picture elements
of sending image
When an image is sent from the computer to
the projector, it becomes a number of picture
elements of XGA or WXGA (for VPLCW125). When the resolution of the image
sent from the computer is higher than XGA/
WXGA, the image projected on the
projector will be degraded. To prevent this
phenomenon, check [Set PC desktop to
Projector resolution] of [Connection
Setting] on [Option Setting] in the
application software so that the PC desktop
is automatically set to XGA/WXGA mode
or set the resolution on the computer to
XGA/WXGA.
In VPL-CW125, the image is shown by
WXGA when the resolution of the computer
is 1280 × 768 to 1360 × 768. When the
resolution of the computer is WXGA, black
bands are added to the top and bottom of the
window in VPL-CX86/CX76/FE40/FX40/
CX155/CX125. On the other hand, the
image is shown almost fully in the window
size in VPL-CW125. (Sometimes black
bands are added to the top and bottom or left
and right of the window in WXGA
according to the minimal difference between
the resolutions of the computer and the
projector.)
If you use VPL-CW125 and if your
computer cannot output the resolution of
WXGA, delete the check from [Set PC
desktop to Projector resolution]. When it is
checked, ProjectorStation for AirShot
Version2 outputs the image without
changing the resolution if the resolution of
the computer is 1280 × 768 to 1360 × 768. If
the resolution of the computer is other than
these values, it outputs the image by
changing the resolution to 1280 × 768. In
this case, if the resolution cannot be changed
due to the display driver of the computer, it
works as [Set PC desktop to Projector
resolution] is not checked.
When you connect two or more projectors to
the computer, the resolution of the second or
subsequent projector will be the same as the
Before Operation
3
first projector. If you use VPL-CW125 and
another model at the same time, connect
VPL-CW125 as the second or third, etc.
• The [Simple Mode Setting] tab for the
Simple Mode function is displayed in
[Option]. However, it is not available for
VPL-CX155/CX125/CW125 series, etc.
About Version Compatibilities
