NOTE: The actual operating life span of a projector lamp will vary according to operating conditions and usage patterns. Usage of a projector in stressful conditions which may include dusty environments, under high temperatures and abrupt powering-off may result in a lamp's shortened operating life span or possibly lamp failure. The lamp life specified for Dell's projectors refers to the typical time under non-stressful operating conditions for more than 50% of a sampling population to reduce to approximately 50% of the lamp's rated brightness level. It is not the measure of time a lamp will cease light output.

Appendix: Glossary

ANSI L UMENS — A standard for measuring light output, used for comparing projectors.

A SPECT R ATIO — The most popular aspect ratio is 4:3 (4 by 3). Early television and computer video formats are in a 4:3 aspect ratio, which means that the width of the image is 4/3 times the height.

B

ACKLIT

(B

ACKLIGHT

) — Refers to a remote control, or a projector control panel, that has buttons and controls that are illuminated.

Bandwidth— The number of cycles per second (Hertz) expressing the difference between the lower and upper limiting frequencies of a frequency band; also, the width of a band of frequencies.

Brightness— The amount of light emitting from a display or projection display or projection device. The brightness of projector is measured by ANSI lumens.

Color Temperature— A method of measuring the whiteness of a light source.

Metal halide lamps have a higher temperature compared to halogen or incandescent lights.

Component Video— A method of delivering quality video in a format that contains all the components of the original image. These components are referred to as luma and chroma and are defined as Y'Pb'Pr' for analog component and

Y'Cb'Cr' for digital component. Component video is available on DVD players and projectors.

Composite Video — The combined picture signal, including vertical and horizontal blanking and synchronizing signals.

Compression— A function that deletes resolution lines from the image to fit in the display area.

Compressed SVGA— To project an 800x600 image to a VGA projector, the original 800x600 signal must be compressed down. The data displays all the information with only two thirds of the pixels (307,000 vs 480,000). The resulting image is SVGA page size but sacrifices some of the image quality. If you are using an SVGA computers, connecting VGA to a VGA projector. provide better results.

Compressed SXGA— Found on XGA projectors, compressed SXGA handling allows these projectors to handle up to 1280x1024 SXGA resolution.

Compressed XGA— Found on SVGA projectors, compressed XGA handling allows these projectors to handle 1024x768 XGA resolution.

Glossary 43

Contrast Ratio— Range of light and dark values in a picture, or the ratio between their maximum and minimum values. There are two methods used by the projection industry to measure the ratio:

1 Full On/Off — measures the ratio of the light output of an all white image (full on) and the light output of an all black (full off) image.

2 ANSI — measures a pattern of 16 alternating black and white rectangles. The average light output from the white rectangles is divided by the average light output of the black rectangles to determine the ANSI contrast ratio.

Full On/Off contrast is always a larger number than ANSI contrast for the same projector.

dB— decibel — A unit used to express relative difference in power or intensity, usually between two acoustic or electric signals, equal to ten times the common logarithm of the ratio of the two levels.

Diagonal Screen— A method of measuring the size of a screen or a projected image. It measures from one corner to the opposite corner. A 9FT high, 12FT wide, screen has a diagonal of 15FT. This document assumes that the diagonal dimensions are for the traditional 4:3 ratio of a computer image as per the example above.

DLP— Digital Light Processing — Reflective display technology developed by

Texas Instruments, using small manipulated mirrors. Light passes through a color filter is sent to the DLP mirrors which arrange the RGB colors into a picture projected onto screen, also known as DMD.

DMD— digital Micro- Mirror Device — Each DMD consists of thousands of tilting, microscopic aluminum alloy mirrors mounted on a hidden yoke.

DVI— Digital Visual Interface — Defines the digital interface between digital devices such as projectors and personal computers. For devices that support DVI, a digital to digital connection can be made that eliminates the conversion to analog and thereby delivers an unblemished image.

Focal Length— The distance from the surface of a lens to its focal point.

Frequency— It is the rate of repetition in cycles per seconds of electrical signals.

Measured in Hz.

Hz — Frequency of an alternating signal. See Frequency.

Keystone Correction— Device that will correct an image of the distortion

(usually a wide-top narrow-bottom effect) of a projected image caused by improper projector to screen angle.

Laser Pointer— A small pen or cigar sized pointer that contains a small battery powered laser, which can project a small, red (typically), high intensity beam of light that is immediately very visible on the screen.

44 Glossary

Maximum Distance— The distance from a screen the projector can be to cast an image that is useable (bright enough) in a fully darkened room.

Maximum Image Size— The largest image a projector can throw in a darkened room. This is usually limited by focal range of the optics.

Metal Halide Lamp— The type of lamp used in many medium and all high end portable projectors. These lamps typically have a "half-life" of 1000-2000 hours.

That is they slowly lose intensity (brightness) as they are used, and at the "half-life" point, they are half as bright as when new. These lamps output a very "hot" temperature light, similar to mercury vapor lamps used in streetlights.. Their whites are "extremely" white (with slight bluish cast.) and make Halogen lamp's whites look very yellowish by comparison.

Minimum Distance— The closest position that a projector can focus an image onto a screen.

NTSC— The United States broadcast standard for video and broadcasting.

PAL— A European and international broadcast standard for video and broadcasting. Higher resolution than NTSC.

Power Zoom— A zoom lens with the zoom in and out controlled by a motor, usually adjusted from the projector's control panel and also the remote control.

Reverse Image— Feature that allows you to flip the image horizontally. When used in a normal forward projection environment text, graphics, etc, are backwards. Reverse image is used for rear projection.

RGB— Red, Green, Blue — typically used to describe a monitor that requires separate signals for each of the three colors.

S-Video— A video transmission standard that uses a 4-pin mini-DIN connector to send video information on two signal wires called luminance (brightness, Y) and chrominance (color, C). S-Video is also referred to as Y/C.

SECAM— A French and international broadcast standard for video and broadcasting. Higher resolution than NTSC.

SVGA— Super Video Graphics Array — 800 x 600 pixels count.

SXGA— Super Ultra Graphics Array, — 1280 x 1024 pixels count.

UXGA— Ultra Extended Graphics Array — 1600 x 1200 pixels count.

VGA— Video Graphics Array — 640 x 480 pixels count.

XGA— Extra Video Graphics Array — 1024 x 768 pixels count.

Glossary 45

Zoom Lens— Lens with a variable focal length that allows operator to move the view in or out making the image smaller or larger.

Zoom Lens Ratio— Is the ratio between the smallest and largest image a lens can projector from a fixed distance. For example, a 1.4:1 zoom lens ratio means that a

10 foot image without zoom would be a 14 foot image with full zoom.
