PRECAUTIONS
Please follow these precautions:
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the unit to rain or
moisture.
To prevent electrical shock, do not open the cabinet. Refer to qualified
personnel for service only.
Do not use the unit continuously for more than 24 hours with camera
auto focus on. It may cause damage to the camera lens.
Be careful not to spill water or other liquids onto the unit, or allow
combustible or metallic objects to get inside the cabinet.
Unplug the visualizer from the wall outlet when it is not in use for an
extended period of time.
Clean cabinet with a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent.
Clean lens carefully with an air spray or soft dry cloth to avoid
scratching.
When lamps flash or become dark, they should be replaced with new
ones.
Avoid interchanging arm lights and back light frequently.

Cable
Computer
Connect the PROJECTOR port to the projector’s RGB IN port using the
RGB cable. You can also control a projector using the controls on the visualizer by connecting the projector to the visualizer using a 6-pin to 9-pin
RS232 cable. Some projector models may require a converter cable in
addition to this standard RS232 cable to connect to the projector control
port, for the pin locations and shape of some projectors’ control port connector may be different from the connector of a standard RS232 cable.
Once the visualizer is connected to the projector, you can control the
projector’s power on, standby and input selection by using the visualizer.
(Aside from Hitachi projectors, the Code Writing program that comes with
the visualizer is required to access this function.)
Note: You can connect a laptop computer to the RGB IN port using a RGB
cable. Use the computer RS232 cable (9-pin to 9-pin) to make the connections displayed below to control the visualizer from an external
computer.
A USB connection enables the computer to capture still images and/or video
streams from the visualizer. Special software is required for this operation.
Step 4: Connect to the first video equipment with S-Video input.

In the step 2, the connection between the S-video and C-Video output signals
to the projector was established, where the RGB cable runs from the visualizer
and goes to the projector. Once the connections have been made as detailed
in the steps 2, 3, 4, input signals from the computer visualizer CCD, C-Video
and S-Video are going to the RGB1 input on the projector and will be displayed on the projector screen as RGB1. These signals can be seen in turn
when pressing “CCD/PC1/PC2” and “S-VIDEO/VIDEO” on the control panel of
the visualizer.
Step 5: Connect to the second video equipment with video input.

B. Double click X:\ 232 Control\Control Panel(you can open this file from the CD
and double click it, or copy this file to any directory on your computer’s hard
drive and double click to launch it).
CONTROLLING PROJECTOR BY VISUALIZER
When the indicator of “Current RS-232 Connection Status” is green, that
means the connection between the visualizer and the computer’s RS232
connector is good. If the indicator is red, please check if the RS232 cable is
connected correctly. When all the cables are connected correctly, please click
“Projector” to select your projector model under the drop-down list, then click
“Send”. If you can not find your particular projector model in the “Projector”,
please do the following:
1) Select “Baud rate” and “parity” and input the projector control code. (The
baud rate, parity and control code is supplied by projector’s manufacturer,
please refer to the projector’ manual)
The code writing software is used to inputting projector’s control code, then can
control various projector with the visualizer.
1. Connect the visualizer to the projector with the RGB VIDEO S-VIDEO
cables.
2. Connect the RS232 cable to the computer’s connector. The visualizer’s
RS232 port is located on its right side.
3. After completion of the connection, turn on the visualizer click [start] -> [All
Programs] -> Visualizer ->
and the following dialog box
appears as below:
The input format of projector’s control code is as follows:
a. If the data is in the numerical value format, please input data directly, block
them off with comma, do not distinguish lowercase and uppercase.
For example: the “POWER ON” code in Hitachi projector manual is :
BE EF
03
06
00
BA D2
01
00
00
60
01
00
In the POWRE ON box,Input : be, ef, 03, 06, 00, ba, d2, 01, 00, 00, 60, 01,
00. Then use the same input rule to input other code.
b. If the data is in the character string format, input ‘character string’.
For example: the “POWER ON” code in the SHARP C40/50 projector manual
is:
P
( “-“ is space
18
O
W
E
-
-
-
is enter.)
19
1
In the POWER ON box, input ’POWR 1’, 0d, 0a
(Remarks: There are 3 spaces after POWER, 0d, 0a is enter.)
Input other codes in the same way.
c. If the data is in the numerical value and character format, then synthesize the
above-mentioned formats.
5. If you can not use buttons on the operation panel to control the projector,
please use Code-Writing software’s projector control code testing function to
check if the control code is correct.
Click “Projector” button, the following dialog box appears as below:
3. Once done, click “Add” to add your projector model, then Click “Send”. Afterward, click “Ok”. Now, you can use the visualizer to control your projector.
4. Connect the visualizer’s projector control port to the RS232 port with a
RS232 cable (Please disconnect the computer from the RS232 port first). Then
use buttons on the operation panel to control the projector.
The visualizer provides a 6-pin to 9-pin RS232 cable. If this cable does not
match to your projector’s RS232 port, an additional RS232 cable is needed.
This additional RS232 cable can be made based on the pin location of the
projector’s RS232 control port. The pin locations of the visualizer are: the pin 1
is RXD (Received Data); the pin 5 is TXD (Transmitted Data); the pin 4 is GND
(Ground). Other pins are not defined. The pin location information of the projector is provided by the projector’s manufacturer. The projector’s RS232 control
port normally has RXD pin, TXD pin and GND pin, the name may be different.
Connect the visualizer to a computer with a RS232 cable (Please disconnect
the projector from the RS232 port first) and select the Baud Rate and Parity
based on the projector’s Baud Rate, then click the “TEST” button to pop up the
Projector Code Test dialog box, input the Baud Rate and Parity based on the
projector’s Baud rate, then click “Open”.
The parallelism of each data pin is shown as follows:
Visualizer’s RXD pin------------Projector’s TXD pin
Visualizer’s TXD pin------------Projector’s RXD pin
Visualizer’s GND pin------------Projector’s GND pin

Click the projector control buttons on the visualizer’s operating panel to check
if the control code that the program received is the same as the sending code.
If the receiving code is same to the sending code, the input codes are correct.
If the visualizer can not control the projector, please do the following.
1. Check to see if the source control codes of projector are correct.
2. Check to make sure the connection between the visualizer and the projector
is correct.
