4. Projector registration
4.1. Registration of projector to "ProjectorView Global+"
The procedures to register projectors vary among the foregoing connection examples.
• In connection examples 1 and 2 (where projectors are installed within the same local network), the projectors
within such network are automatically detected and registered. For details, see procedure A below.
• In connection example 3 (where projectors are installed via a router), specify the range of the projectors' IP
addresses and then carry out automatic projector search within the range to register projectors. For details, see
procedure B below.
• In addition to the procedures shown by the connection examples, you can register projectors manually without
using the automatic projector search. For details, see "Manual registration of projector" on page 12.
• Up to 200 units of projectors can be registered at the maximum.
• Projectors that have just been registered by the automatic projector search aren't belonging to any group. When
the projectors you registered aren't displayed on the projector list on the main screen, select "All" or "Group
unsetting" from the group select pull-down menu.
Procedure A - For connection examples 1 and 2 (where projectors are installed within the
same local network)
(1) Start up "ProjectorView Global+".
(2) Select "Search Projector" from "Global Control" of the menu bar on the main screen.
• The projectors connected to LAN are searched automatically.
• The password is required when you are connecting the projectors for the first time. If the projector password is
changed, you need to enter that new password.
<Note>
• Ensure that the IP address of the PC and that of the projector are in the same network group. (The last octet of the
IP address should contain a different value.)
• Be sure to make a note of the IP addresses you set. If you forget the IP addresses, you may not be able to detect
the projectors again.
• At initial setup, DHCP or Auto IP (169.254.0.1 through 169.254.255.254) automatically assigns an IP address.
Note that a different IP address may be assigned every time you start the projectors. If a connection cannot be
established, execute "Search Projector".
• If you change the IP address in the projector menu after the projectors have been detected, execute "Search
Projector" again.
• It is recommended that you assign an IP address of the projector to the fixed IP address.

4. Projector registration
Procedure B - Connection example 3 (where projectors are installed via a router)
To automatically detect projectors connected via a router, confirm the IP address in the projector network menu and
specify a range of IP addresses to search that particular IP address using "Detect Projector".

(A) of the search range.
• Up to 16 search ranges can be set. (Settings can be configured for each line of the search range.)
(4) To save the settings, click [OK]. To continue the projector search, click [Search Projector].
• When you click [OK], the search ranges you specify are saved and the "Detect Projector" window is closed.
• When you don't want to save the search ranges, click [Cancel] to close the "Detect Projector" window.
• After saving the settings, by selecting "Global Control" on the menu bar and then selecting "Search Projector",

11. PJLink
This projector, which is equipped with LAN terminal and manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, is fully
compliant to the specifications of JBMIA PJLink Class 1. It supports all the commands defined by PJLink Class 1,
and the compliance has been verified with the PJLink standard specifications Version 1.0.
<Note>
• The above-mentioned control may not be performed correctly or the monitoring data may not be obtained correctly
in the following conditions:
• During standby
• During input source switching
• During command processing
• During AUTO POSITION execution
• During AV mute
• Before the splash screen disappears after the power is turned on.
• During AV mute, etc., it may take approx. 5 seconds to receive a response to a command.
• Use 1 controller to control/monitor 1 projector.
• For how to control/monitor using PJLink, see the operation manual of the PJLink application you use.
• When you monitor the projector's operating state using this function by issuing inquiry commands successively,
issue an inquiry command after receiving the response to the previous inquiry command from the projector.
• For the specifications of PJLink, access to the Web site of Japan Business Machine and Information System
Industries Association (JBMIA). (http://pjlink.jbmia.or.jp/english)
• Supported command varies depending on the model of projectors. For details of the supported commands in the
projectors listed in "12.2. Supported Projectors", see "LAN Control Utility" User Manual included with the projector.
30
12. Others
12.1. Troubleshooting
• The projector can not be recognized.
The projector may not be recognized automatically due to the setting of fire wall. In such case, the communication
of "ProjectorView Global+" should be registered as an exception to the fire wall. For the setting of the fire wall, see
the manual of the software that configures the fire wall.
• Operation by the remote controller can not be properly performed.
The operation may not be performed until the last operation has been completed. In such case, wait for a while
and perform the operation again. In addition, confirm whether the network setting such as IP address is correct.
• Application becomes "No reply".
Since it may take time for processing of the automatic status acquisition, the application can not be operated during that time, and "No reply" may be displayed. Wait for a while until the processing has been ended.
• Application cannot be operated sometimes.
The application cannot be operated during the acquisition of the projector status. When the main power of the projector is off or projectors not actually connected are registered, the projector status acquisition may take longer
time to complete because it waits until timeout. In this case, you can reduce the acquisition time by deleting
unnecessary registered projectors.
• Projectors cannot be controlled. Projector status isn't displayed.
Try either "Initialize Network Configuration" or "7 factory defaults" on Telnet. However, note that you are required to
make settings of the projectors again because they are reset to the defaults.
12.2. Supported Projectors
• "Telnet" is available in the following types of projectors. For details, see "LAN Control Utility" User Manual included
