What’s in the Box? and
the Names of the
Projector Parts
1-1. Features
• DLPCinema® projector
Complies with the strict projection standards defined by the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) industry group in the United States
using leading imaging technology of NEC. It also supports 3D projection and high frame rates (HFR).
• Employsalonglifelaserlightsource
The projector employs a newly developed laser light source offering excellent reliability and redundancy. Since the laser light
source has a long life (approx. 30,000 hours), this delivers low cost operation by removing the need for maintenance such as
replacing and adjusting the light module over extended periods of time. Furthermore, it reduces the risk of the light source
suddenly shutting off and leaving a black screen.
• Deliversreducedinstallationspaceandincreasedfreedomthroughamorecompactandlightweightbody
The use of a 0.69" DLP cinema chip together with integration of the light module into the projector main unit both delivers a
reduced installation area as well as improving the degree of freedom of installation. A wide variety of optional lenses (sold
separately) are also available for the projector in order to support a wide variety of installation methods (a lens is not
mounted when the projector is shipped from the factory).
• Equippedwitheasytousefunctions
(1) Lens memory function and light memory function that can be operated with one touch.
The projector is equipped with a lens memory function that can save the zoom position and shift position of the lens and
a light memory function that can save the brightness setting separately for each input signal. This makes it possible to
project using preconfigured settings simply by selecting the signal when projecting multiple different input signals each
with different screen size and brightness settings (Refer to “6-9. Related products list” (page 75) for details on the lenses
that support the lens memory function).
(2) Built-in automatic adjustment function that makes the brightness and color of the light source uniform
Degradation of brightness and variations in color that occur as the light source is used for longer periods of time are kept
to a minimum (the period over which variations in brightness can be limited varies depending on the brightness setting).
15
1. What’s in the Box? and the Names of the Projector Parts
(3) Frequently used titles can be registered in preset buttons
The projector has been equipped with 8 preset buttons that make it easy to select registered title (input signal). To this
projector, 100 titles at most can be registered (input signal registration). Among the registered titles, any 16 titles can be
assigned to the preset buttons.
(4) You can operate and configure the projector via a network from a PC
You can operate and configure the projector via a network from a PC by using the separately supplied software Digital
Cinema Communicator (DCC) for S2.
• Advanced Dust Protection
A dust control shield is arranged between each DMD chip of R, G and B, and the spectroscopic/condenser prism. It prevents
dust and dirt in the air, and oily particles in smoke associated with event halls from coming into contact with the face of the
DMD and causing operating problems.

Maintenance of Your
Projector
NOTE
Please request your dealer to perform cleaning of the projector inside.
5-1. Cleaning the Cabinet
Before carrying out maintenance of your projector and chiller unit, be sure to always check that the projector is turned off and
the power plug is unplugged from the electrical outlet.
• Wipe with a dry, soft cloth without nap.
When the cabinet is excessively dirty, wipe with cloth well wrung after being dampened with a neutral detergent diluted with
water and then finish up with a dry cloth.
When you use a chemical dust cloth, follow the instructions in the manual attached to it.
• Do not use a solvent, such as thinner or benzene. The coating may deteriorate or peel off.
• When removing dust on the ventilation opening, suck it off using an adapter with a brush on a vacuum cleaner. Never allow
the cleaner without an adapter to come into direct contact or use a nozzles adapter in cleaning.
• Clean the ventilation opening at regular intervals. Dust, if allowed to accumulate there, may cause heating inside, which
leads to functional trouble. The interval, which can vary with the location of your projector, is about 100 hours.
• Do not damage the cabinet by scratching it or allowing hard objects to hit it. This can scratch the projector.
• Consult your dealer/distributor about cleaning the inside of the projector.
NOTE
Do not allow insecticide or other volatile liquid to splash on the cabinet, lens or screen. Also, do not allow any rubber
or plastic object to remain in contact with the cabinet for a long time. The coating may deteriorate or peel off.

6-3. Operation using an HTTP browser
6-3-1. Overview
The use of HTTP server functions will allow control of the projector from a web browser. Please be sure to use “Microsoft Internet
Explorer 4.x” or a higher version for the web browser.
This device uses “JavaScript” and “Cookies” and the browser should be set to accept these functions. The setting method will
vary depending on the version of the browser. Please refer to the help files and the other information provided in your
software.
NOTE
The display’s or button’s response can be slowed down or operation may not be accepted depending on the
settings of your network.
Should this happen, consult your network administrator.
The projector may not respond if its buttons are repeatedly pressed in rapid intervals. Should this happen, wait
a moment and repeat.
Access is gained to the HTTP server functions by and specifying
http://<the projector’s IP address>/index.html
in the entry column of the URL.
6-3-2. Preparation before use
Make network connections and set up the projector and confirm that it is complete before engaging in browser operations.
Operations with a browser that uses a proxy server may not be possible depending on the type of proxy server and the setting
method. Although the type of proxy server will be a factor, it is possible that items that have actually been set will not be displayed depending on the effectiveness of the cache, and the contents set from a browser not be reflected in operation. It is
recommended that a proxy server not be used unless it is unavoidable.
6-3-3. Handling of the address for operation via a browser
Regarding the actual address that is entered for the address or entered to the URL column when operation of the projector is
via a browser, the host name can be used as it is with the host name corresponding to the IP address of the projector has been
registered in the domain name server by a network administrator, or the host name corresponding to the IP address of the
projector has been set in the “HOSTS” file of the computer being used.
(Example 1) When the host name of the projector has been set to “pj.nec.co.jp”
http://pj.nec.co.jp/index.html is specified for the address or the entry column of the URL to access HTTP server
functions.
(Example 2) When the IP address of the projector is “192.168.10.10”
http://192.168.10.10/index.html is specified for the address or the entry column of the URL to access HTTP server
