warranty does not cover:
a. Problems or damage occurring during shipment, in either direction.
b. Projector lamps (See Christie’s separate lamp program policy).
c. Problems or damage caused by use of a projector lamp beyond the recommended lamp life, or use of a lamp other than a Christie lamp supplied by
Christie or an authorized distributor of Christie lamps.
d. Problems or damage caused by combination of a product with non-Christie equipment, such as distribution systems, cameras, DVD players, etc., or use
of a product with any non-Christie interface device.

Communicating with GS
Series
Understand the information and procedures for communicating with GS Series from a remote location.
You can communicate with the projector through the RS232 IN port or the Ethernet port. When
connecting the projector to a computer, use a direct connection. Docking ports can cause software
upgrade failures.
Connecting to the projector RS232 IN port
Communicate with the projector through the RS232 IN port.
1.
Connect one end of a null standard nine-pin female to female modem cable to the projector
RS232 IN port.
2.
Connect the other end of the null standard nine-pin female to female modem cable to a
computer.
3.
Connect PIN 2 to PIN 3, PIN 3 to PIN 2 and PIN 5 to PIN 5.
Connecting to the projector Ethernet port
Communicate with the projector through the Ethernet port.
1.
Connect an Ethernet cable to the projector from your computer.
2.
Setup the correct IP for the projector on your computer.
3.
On the TCP software, use port 3002.
4.
Start sending serial commands.
RS232 communication parameters
The RS232 IN port has several communication parameters.

None
Correct command formatting
Add a space between the code and the number when entering commands.
For example, PXT50 can be entered as PXT 50. To increase or decrease a value in some commands,
enter n for the next value and p for the previous value. For example:
(OVS0): OFF
(OVS1): ZOOM
(OVS2): CROP
If the current over scan (OVS) setting is off (OVS n), the command OVS p sets the value to zoom.
Understanding message format
Commands sent to and from GS Series are formatted as simple text messages consisting of a three
letter command code, an optional four letter subcode, and optional data.
You can include optional features such as message acknowledgments with your commands.
Available message types
Message type
Description
Set
A command to set a projector parameter at a specific level, such as changing the
brightness.
Request
A request for information, such as what is the current brightness setting.
Reply
Returns the data in response to a request or as confirmation of a command.
Message structure
Understand the components of an ASCII command.
Regardless of message type or origin, all messages use the same basic format and code. Opening and
closing round brackets (parentheses) surround each message.
Message
element
Description
Parentheses
Commands are enclosed by parentheses ().
If a start character is received before an end character of the previous message, the
partial (previous) message is discarded.
Prefix characters
(optional)
Acknowledges the projector has responded or increases message integrity when added
before the three-character function code.

Communicating with GS Series
Message
element
Description
• Number symbol (#)—Request a full acknowledgment. A full acknowledgment sends
an echo of the message as a reply from the projector when it finishes processing the
command. Do not include a full acknowledgment in a request message.
Function code
The primary projector function being queried or modified. Each function code is
represented by a three-character, upper or lower case ASCII code (A-Z).
The function code appears after the first parenthesis. If a command does not include a
subcode, a space between the function code and the first parameter (or special character)
is optional.
+subcode
The secondary projector function being queried or modified.
Each subcode is represented by a four-character, upper or lower case ASCII code (A-Z and
0-9). The subcode appears after the function code, and it is separated from the function
code with a plus symbol (+). If a subcode is not included, the plus symbol is not required.
If a command includes a subcode, a space between the subcode and the first parameter
(or special character) is optional.
Request and reply
symbols
The question mark symbol (?) appears after the function code when the controller
requests projector information.
An exclamation mark (!) appears after the function code when the projector responds to a
request.
Do not include a question or exclamation mark when creating a SET command.
Error messages
If a command cannot be performed, a descriptive error identifying the problem appears.
For example, the following message indicates a syntax error:
(ITP) - (65535 00000 ERR00005 "ITP: Too Few Parameters")

PXP–Pixel Phase
Adjusts the phase of the pixel sampling clock relative to the incoming signal.
You can fine tune the sampling point within one pixel. Adjust the Pixel Phase when the image (usually
from an RGB source) shows shimmer. If the shimmer is concentrated in vertical bands with little or no
shimmer between the bands, the pixel tracking might need adjustment. Pixel Tracking must be set
correctly before adjusting Pixel Phase.
The Pixel Phase command can only be set on analog input cards.
Commands

PXT–Pixel Tracking
Adjusts the position of the pixel sampling clock to match the input signal.
Proper pixel tracking ensure the image quality is consistent across the screen. If adjusted incorrectly,
flickering or vertical bars of noise appear across the image. Adjust Pixel Tracking so the noise either
disappears or fills the image. If it fills the image, use Pixel Phase to eliminate the noise.
The Pixel Tracking command can only be set on analog input cards.
