Important safety instructions
Ceiling mounting the
projector
We want you to have a pleasant
experience using your BenQ
projector, so we need to bring this
safety matter to your attention to
prevent possible damage to person
and property.
If you intend to mount your projector
on the ceiling, we strongly recommend
that you use a proper fitting BenQ
projector ceiling mount kit and that
you ensure it is securely and safely
installed.
If you use a non-BenQ brand
projector ceiling mount kit, there is a
safety risk that the projector may fall
from the ceiling due to an improper
attachment through the use of the
wrong gauge or length screws.
You can purchase a BenQ projector
ceiling mount kit from the place you
purchased your BenQ projector.
BenQ recommends that you also
purchase a separate Kensington lock
compatible security cable and attach it
securely to both the Kensington lock
slot on the projector and the base of
the ceiling mount bracket. This will
perform the secondary role of
restraining the projector should its
attachment to the mounting bracket
become loose.
Hg - Lamp contains mercury. Manage
in accordance with local disposal
laws. See www.lamprecycle.org.

Positioning your projector
Choosing a location
Your projector is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations.
Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select.
Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable
power outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of
your equipment.
1.
Front
Select this location with the projector
placed on a table in front of the screen.
This is the most common way to position
the projector for quick setup and
portability.
2.
Rear
Select this location with the projector
placed on a table behind the screen.
Note that a special rear projection screen
is required.
*Set Rear after you turn the projector
on.
3.
Front Ceiling
Select this location with the projector
suspended upside-down from the ceiling
in front of the screen.
4.
Rear Ceiling
Select this location with the projector
suspended upside-down from the ceiling
behind the screen.
Purchase the BenQ Projector Ceiling
Mounting Kit from your dealer to mount
your projector on the ceiling.
Note that a special rear projection screen
and the BenQ Projector Ceiling Mounting
Kit are required for this installation
location.
*Set Front Ceiling after you turn the
projector on.
*Set Rear Ceiling after you turn the

Positioning your projector
BenQ W1300.book Page 17 Thursday, August 29, 2013 2:07 PM
Obtaining a preferred projected image size
The distance from the projector lens to the screen, the zoom setting (if available), and the
video format each factors in the projected image size.
The projector should always be placed horizontally level (like flat on a table), and
positioned directly perpendicular (90° right-angle square) to the horizontal center of the
screen. This prevents image distortion caused by angled projections (or projecting onto
angled surfaces).
If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it must be mounted upside-down so that it
projects at a slightly downward angle.
If the projector is positioned further away from the screen, the projected image size
increases, and the vertical offset also increases proportionately.
When determining the position of the screen and projector, you will need to account for
both the projected image size and the vertical offset dimension, which are directly
proportional to the projection distance.
How to determine the position of the projector for
a given screen size
1.
2.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your screen size in the left columns
labelled "Screen dimensions" on page 19. Using this value, look across this row to the
right to find the corresponding average distance from screen value in the column
labelled "avg" on page 19. This is the projection distance.
Decide the exact position of your projector according to the position of your screen
and the adjustable lens shift range.
How to determine the recommended screen size
for a given distance
This method can be used for situations where you have purchased this projector and
would like to know what screen size will fit in your room.
The maximum screen size is limited by the physical space available in your room.
1.
2.
3.
Measure the distance between the projector and where you want to position the
screen. This is the projection distance.
Refer to the table and find the closest match to your measurement in the average
distance from screen column labelled "avg" on page 19. Check that your measured
distance is between the min and max distances listed on either side of the average
distance value.
Using this value, look across that row to the left to find the corresponding screen
diagonal listed in that row. That is the projected image size of the projector at that
projection distance.
Positioning your projector
17
BenQ W1300.book Page 18 Thursday, August 29, 2013 2:07 PM
For example,
if your have a 16:9 aspect ratio screen and your measured projection distance was
5.0 m (5000 mm), the closest match in the "avg" on page 19 column is 5008 mm.
Looking across this row shows that a 130-inch screen is required.
Checking the min. projection distance in the columns of "Projection distance <D>
[mm]" on page 19 indicates that the 5000 mm measured projection distance will also
fit the 110 and 160-inch size screens. The projector can be adjusted (using the zoom
control) to display on these different screen sizes at the projection distance. Be
aware that these different screens have different vertical offset values.
If you place the projector in a different position (to that recommended). you will
have to tilt it down or up to center the image on the screen. In these situations,
some image distortion will occur. Use the Keystone function to correct the
distortion. See "Correcting keystone" on page 30 for details.

There is 5% tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. BenQ
recommends that if you intend to permanently install the projector, you should physically test
the projection size and distance using the actual projector before you permanently install it, so
as to make allowance for this projector's optical characteristics. This will help you determine
the exact mounting position so that it best suits your installation location.

Shifting the projection lens
The lens shift control provides flexibility for installing your projector. It allows the
projector to be positioned off the center of the screen.
The lens shift is expressed as a percentage of the projected image half height. It is
measured as an offset from the projected image’s vertical center. You can shift the
projection lens within the allowable range depending on your desired image position.

Connecting audio
The projector has one built-in mono speaker which are designed to provide basic audio
functionality accompanying data presentations for business purposes only. They are not
designed for, nor intended for stereo audio reproduction use as might be expected in
home theater or home cinema applications. Any stereo audio input (if provided), is mixed
into a common mono audio output through the projector speaker.
The built-in speaker will be muted when the AUDIO OUT jack is connected.
26
•
The projector is only capable of playing mixed mono audio, even if a stereo audio input is
connected. See "Connecting audio" on page 26 for details.
•
If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct
video source has been selected, check that the video source device is turned on and
operating correctly. Also check that the signal cables have been connected correctly.
Connection
BenQ W1300.book Page 27 Thursday, August 29, 2013 2:07 PM
Playing sound through the projector
You can make use of the projector (mixed mono) speaker in your presentations, and also
connect separate amplified speakers to the AUDIO OUT socket of the projector.
If you have a separate sound system, you will most likely want to connect the audio output
of your Video source device to that sound system, instead of to the mono audio projector.
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen Display (OSD)
menus.
The table below describes the connection methods for different devices, and where the
sound is from.

Color Management
In most installation situations, color management will not be necessary, such as in
classroom, meeting room, or lounge room situations where lights remain on, or where
building external windows allow daylight into the room.
Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as boardrooms, lecture
theaters, or home theaters, should color management be considered. Color management
provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction,
should you require it.
Proper color management can only be achieved under controlled and reproducible viewing
conditions. You will need to use a colorimeter (color light meter), and provide a set of
suitable source images to measure color reproduction. These tools are not provided with
the projector, however, your projector supplier should be able to provide you with suitable
guidance, or even an experienced professional installer.
The Color Management provides six sets (RGBCMY) of colors to be adjusted. When you
select each color, you can independently adjust its range and saturation according to your
preference.
If you have purchased a test disc which contains various color test patterns and can be
used to test the color presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc. You can project any
image from the disc on the screen and enter the Color Management menu to make
adjustments.

Selecting the aspect ratio
The 'aspect ratio' is the ratio of the image width to the image height. Most analog TV and
computers are in 4:3 ratio, and digital TV and DVDs are usually in 16:9 ratio.
With the advent of digital signal processing, digital display devices like this projector can
dynamically stretch and scale the image output to a different aspect than that of the image
input signal.
To change the projected image ratio (no matter what aspect the source is):
1.
2.
3.
Press MENU/EXIT and then press
/
until the Display menu is highlighted.
Press
to highlight Aspect Ratio.
Press / to select an aspect ratio to suit the format of the video signal and your
display requirements.
About the aspect ratio
In the pictures below, the black portions are inactive areas and the white portions are active
areas. OSD menus can be displayed on those unused black areas.
1.
Auto: Scales an image
proportionally to fit the projector's
native resolution in its horizontal
width. This is suitable for the
incoming image which is neither in
4:3 nor 16:9 and you want to make
most use of the screen without
altering the image's aspect ratio.
4.
16:9: Scales an image so that it is
displayed in the center of the screen
with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is
most suitable for images which are
already in a 16:9 aspect, like high
definition TV, as it displays them
without aspect alteration.

Real: The image is projected as its
original resolution, and resized to fit
within the display area. For input
signals with lower resolutions, the
projected image will display smaller
than if resized to full screen. You
could adjust the zoom setting or
move the projector away from the
screen to increase the image size if
necessary. You may also need to
refocus the projector after making
these adjustments.

3.
4:3: Scales an image so that it is
displayed in the center of the screen
with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most
suitable for 4:3 images like
computer monitors, standard
definition TV and 4:3 images aspect
DVD movies, as it displays them
without aspect alteration.
16:9 picture
Wide: Stretches the picture
horizontally in a non-linear manner,
that is, the edges of the picture are
stretched more than the center of
the picture to prevent distortion of
the central part of the picture. This
is suitable for occassions where you
want to stretch the width of a 4:3
aspect picture to the width of a 16:9
aspect screen. It does not alter the
height. Some widescreen movies
have been produced with their
width squashed down to the width
of a 4:3 aspect, and are best viewed
when restretched back to their
original width using this setting..
4:3 picture
6.
Letter Box: Scales a picture to fit
the projector’s native resolution in
its horizontal width and resize the
picture’s height to the 3/4 of the
projection width. This may produce
a picture greater in height than can
be displayed, so part of the picture
is lost (not displayed) along the top
and bottom edges of the projection.
This is suitable for the display of
movies which are presented in
letter box format (with black bars
on the top and bottom).

Maintenance
Care of the projector
Your projector needs little maintenance. The only thing you need to do on a regular basis
is to keep the lens clean.
Never remove any parts of the projector except the lamp. Contact your dealer if other
parts need replacing.
Cleaning the lens
Clean the lens whenever you notice dirt or dust on the surface.
•
•
Use a canister of compressed air to remove dust.
If there is dirt or smears, use lens-cleaning paper or moisten a soft cloth with lens
cleaner and gently wipe the lens surface.
Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner, scouring powder, or volatile solvent,
such as alcohol, benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such materials or maintaining prolonged
contact with rubber or vinyl materials may result in damage to the projector surface and
cabinet material.
Cleaning the projector case
Before you clean the case, turn the projector off using the proper shutdown procedure as
described in "Shutting down the projector" on page 47 and unplug the power cord.
•
•
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the case with a soft, lint-free cloth.
To remove stubborn dirt or stains, moisten a soft cloth with water and a neutral pH
detergent. Then wipe the case.
