Using the 3D Function
IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION FOR
3D PICTURES.
Read and understand the following safety information
before using the 3D function.
• Some viewers may experience discomfort while viewing
3D TV such as dizziness, nausea, and headaches.
If you experience any such symptom, stop viewing 3D
TV, remove the 3D Active Glasses, and rest.
• Watching 3D images for an extended period of time
may cause eye strain. If you feel eye strain, stop
viewing 3D TV, remove your 3D Active Glasses, and
rest.
• A responsible adult should frequently check on children
who are using the 3D function.
If there are any reports of tired eyes, headaches,
dizziness, or nausea, have the child stop viewing 3D
TV and rest.
• Do not use the 3D Active Glasses for other purposes
(such as general eyeglasses, sunglasses, protective
goggles, etc.)
• Do not use the 3D function or 3D Active Glasses while
walking or moving around. Using the 3D function or 3D
Active Glasses while moving around may cause you to
bump into objects, trip, and/or fall, and cause serious
injury.
• If you want to enjoy 3D content, connect a 3D device
(3D compliant AV receiver or TV) to the product’s HDMI
OUT port using a high-speed HDMI cable. Put on 3D
glasses before playing the 3D content.
• The product outputs 3D signals only through HDMI
cable connected to the HDMI OUT port.
• As the video resolution in 3D play mode is fixed
according to the resolution of the original 3D video, you
can not change the resolution to your preference.
• Some functions such as BD Wise, screen size
adjustment, and resolution adjustment may not operate
properly in 3D play mode.
• You must use a high-speed HDMI cable for proper
output of the 3D signal.
• Stay at least three times the width of the screen from
the TV when watching 3D images. For example, if
you have a 46 inch screen, stay 3.5 meters from the
screen.
- Place the 3D video screen at eye level for the best
3D picture.
• When the product is connected to some 3D devices,
the 3D effect may not function properly.
• This product does not convert 2D content into 3D.
• “Blu-ray 3D” and “Blu-ray 3D” logo are trademarks of

Position of the product
Place it on a stand or cabinet shelf, or
under the TV stand.
Front (R)
Surround (R)
Selecting the Listening Position
The listening position should be located
about 2.5 to 3 times the distance of the
TV's screen size away from the TV. For
example, if you have a 46 inch screen,
locate the listening position 2.92 to 3.50
meters from the screen.
Surround (L)
Front Speakers
Place these speakers in front of your listening position, facing inwards (about 45°) toward
you. Place the front speakers so that their tweeters will be at the same height as your ear.
Align the front face of the front speakers with the front face of the centre speaker or place
them slightly in front of the centre speakers.
Centre Speaker
It is best to install the Centre Speaker at the same height as the front speakers. You can
also install it directly over or under the TV.
Surround
Speakers
Subwoofer
Place these speakers to the side of your listening position. If there isn't enough room, place
these speakers so they face each other. Position them about 60 to 90cm above your ear,
facing slightly downward.
* Unlike the front and centre speakers, the surround speakers are used mainly for sound
effects. Sound will not come from them all the time.
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical. Place it anywhere you like.
