Glossary
EMP-S1 User’s Guide
Complex terms used in this book, or terms not explained in the body of
the text, will be briefly explained here. For further explanation, please
consult commercially available reference texts.
5BNC
A type of connector used to input analog video
signals.
Aspect ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height.
Images which have an aspect ratio of 16:9 are called
Widescreen. The aspect ratio for standard images is
4:3.
Color
Temperature
The temperature of an object which is emitting light.
When the colour temperature is high, colours tend to
take on a bluish tinge; when the colour temperature
is low, colours tend to take on a reddish tinge.
Component
Video
A type of video signal which has the video
brightness and colour signal information separated,
in order to provide better image quality. In highdefinition TV (HDTV), it refers to images which
consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance
signal), and Pb and Pr (colour difference signals).
Composite Video
The standard home video signal (NTSC, PAL,
SECAM) which has the video brightness and colour
signal information mixed together. Composite video
consists of the carrier signal Y (luminance signal)
and the chroma (colour) signal, combined within the
colour bar signal.
Contrast
62
Cool-down
The process used to cool down a projector lamp that
is hot from use. Cool-down happens automatically
when the [Power] button is pressed on the projector
or on the remote control to turn the projector off. Do
not unplug the projector power cable whilst it is
cooling down. If cool-down is interrupted, heat from
the lamp gets trapped inside the projector, potentially
shortening the life of the lamp and causing projector
failure.
Dolby
digital
An audio format developed by Dolby Laboratories.
Normal stereo is a 2-channel format which uses two
speakers, whereas Dolby Digital is a 6-channel (5.1channel) system which adds a centre speaker, two
rear speakers and a sub-woofer.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television, it
refers to high definition systems which satisfy the
following conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 750p or 1125i or greater
(p=Progressive scanningg, i=Interlaced scanningg)
• Screen aspect ratio of 16:9
• Dolby digitalgl audio reception and playback (or
output)
Interlaced
scanning
Each screen is divided into fine horizontal lines
which are displayed in sequence starting from left to
right and then from top to bottom. This method of
image scanning, whereby even numbered lines and
odd numbered lines are displayed alternately, is
called Interlaced scanning.
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of
an image can be increased or decreased in order to

A method of image scanning whereby the image data
make text and graphics stand out, or appear softer.

Refresh Rate
Resized display
EMP-S1 User’s Guide
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the
same luminosity and colour for an extremely short
time. For this reason, the image must be scanned
many times per second in order to refresh the lightemitting element. The number of refresh operations
per second is called the "refresh rate", and is
expressed in hertz (Hz).
This function is used to project computer images that
have a resolution more than or less than the
projector's panel resolution, so that they fill the
whole of the projection area.
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television.
It refers to standard television systems which do not
satisfy the conditions for High-Definition Television.
Security
lock
A device consisting of a projector case with a hole in
it that a commercially-available theft-prevention
cable can be passed through in order to secure the
device to a table or pillar. This projector is
compatible with the Microsaver Security System
manufactured by Kensington.
Squeeze
mode
sRGB
The method of compressing 16:9 Widescreen images
and recording them on video software as 4:3 images.
When projecting with Squeeze mode on, the images
will return to their original 16:9 format.
SVGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 800
(horizontal) × 600 (vertical) dots which is used by
IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
S-Video
A type of video signal which has the video
brightness and colour signal information separated,
in order to provide better image quality. It refers to
images which consist of two independent signals:
Y(luminance signal), and C (colour signal).
63
Sync.
The signals output from computers have a specific
(Synchronisation) frequency. Image quality will suffer if the projector
frequency and the computer frequency do not match.
The process of matching the phases of these signals
(the relative position of the crests and troughs in the
signal) is called "synchronisation". If the signals are
not synchronised, problems such as flickering,
blurriness and horizontal interference can occur.
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific
frequency. Image quality will suffer if the projector
frequency and the computer frequency do not match.
The process of matching the frequency of these
signals (the number of crests in the signal) is called
"tracking". If tracking is not carried out correctly,
wide vertical stripes will appear in the projected
images.
VGA

FCC Compliance Statement
For United States Users
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,
uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If
this equipment does cause interference to radio and television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this
equipment will invalidate the FCC Certification or Declaration of this
device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits
established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the
user to obtain and use a shielded equipment interface cable with this
device. If this equipment has more than one interface connector, do
not leave cables connected to unused interfaces. Changes or
modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void
the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
