Projector Features
Projector Features
Ease of use when installed on a ceiling mount
Centered lens
The lens is positioned in the center of
the projector so it is well balanced
and is easy to mount on a ceiling.
This also makes it easy to line up the
screen and the projector.
9
Horizontal and vertical installation possible
The projector can be pointed either
up or down to project images on the
floor or ceiling. This makes it an
effective communication tool that
lets you express your ideas with
great impact.
A design that harmonizes with the surrounding environment,
and makes the installation easy
Equipped with electric lens shift, zoom and focus functions
The lens shift function allows you to adjust the position of the projected
image along the horizontal and vertical axes which opens up a wide variety
of installation locations.
The lens shift, zoom, and focus functions can be operated with a remote
control so operation is easy even if the projector is mounted on the ceiling.
Six optional lenses are available
You can select the best lens
according to the projection distance
and purpose. All the optional lenses
are bayonet-type which allows you
to simply and easily replace and
install the optional lenses.
The projector's sophisticated design
has a cable cover in which cables are
hidden for a clean exterior
appearance.
The bar type handles are designed to
make moving and installing the
projector easy so it can be handled
safely. The ceiling mount is attached
to these handles when you mount
the projector on the ceiling. The
projector does not need to be turned
upside down so installation is easy.
The initial settings can be easily set
as you look at the screen because the
control panel is located on the back
of the projector.
Projector Features
Easy maintenance
You can replace the lamp by opening a cover and pulling it straight out of
the back of the projector without using a screwdriver.
There is only one air filter so cleaning and replacement are easy. The lamp
and air filter can be safely replaced even when mounted on the ceiling
because their covers do not fall off even if you release them.
Reliability you can depend on
The projector is equipped with two lamps. Even if one of the lamps
breaks, you can continue projecting with the other lamp and avoid
disrupting important presentations.
10
Large Projection Area and Precise Colors
Equipped with a high-resolution WUXGA panel (PowerLite Pro
Z8000WUNL only)
You can project a large amount of
information on the screen. Viewers
can see the information at a glance
without having to scroll or switch
screens.
Epson Cinema Filter supports the color gamut for digital cinema.
Select Theater or sRGB in Color Mode to use Epson Cinema Filter for 100%
reproduction of the color gamut used for digital cinema. As a result, this
reproduces colors that are full and deep.
Precise color adjustments
As well as Color Mode, you can also adjust the image's absolute color
temperature and the strength of each RGB color. Also, you can adjust the
hue, saturation, and brightness of R, G, B, C, M, and Y.
Projector Features
Enhanced security functions
Password Protect to restrict and manage users
By setting a Password you can restrict who can use the projector.
Control Panel Lock restricts button operation on the Control
panel.
You can use this to prevent people from changing projector settings
without permission at events, in schools, and so on.
Equipped with various theft deterrent devices
The projector is equipped with the following types of theft deterrent
security devices.
11
Using the projector over a network (PowerLite Pro
Z8050WNL only)
You can use the included software to deliver presentations and meetings
over a network. See your Network Operation Guide for more
information.
Connect to the projector from computers via a network
You can use your existing network to share the projector from multiple
computers. Documents can be projected from each computer without
having to change any cables during meetings or presentations. Also, you
don't have to worry about the distance between the computer and the
projector.
• Security slot
Connecting wirelessly to a computer
• Security cable installation point
When you install the optional Wireless 802.11a/b/g Module in the projector,
you can connect wirelessly to a computer.
Easy to handle
Direct power On/Off
In places where power is managed centrally, such as in a conference room,
the projector can be set to power on and off automatically when the power
source to which the projector is connected is switched on or off. s p.74
No cool down delay
After turning the projector's power off, you can disconnect the projector's
power cable without having to wait for the projector to cool down.

Positioning the Projector

Positioning the Projector
If the projector isn’t already installed in the room you’re using, you’ll probably want to place it on a table in front of the screen. This lets you stand in the
front of the room, face the audience, and remain close enough to the equipment to be able to control it. Try to leave as much space as possible between the
projector and the screen to get a good-size image.
Use the illustrations and tables below to help you determine placement. Image size increases with distance, but can vary depending on which lens you’re
using and whether you’ve adjusted the image with zoom or any other settings.
A Projection distance
B The distance from the center of the lens to the base of the screen. This
changes depending on the setting for vertical lens shift.

Useful Functions
This chapter explains useful tips for giving presentations, and the Security functions.
Correcting Distortion in the Projected Image
Correcting Distortion in the Projected Image
There are two ways to correct distortion in projected images.
• Quick Corner
This allows you to manually correct each of the four corners of the
projected image separately. s p.40
We recommend using Quick Corner to accurately adjust keystone
distortion.
• H/V-Keystone
This allows you to manually correct distortion in the horizontal and
vertical directions independently. You can perform easy H/V-Keystone
corrections by using the [w/ ] [v/ ] [</ ] and [>/ ] buttons
on the projector's control panel, as shown below.
Before performing horizontal or vertical keystone, use the lens shift
function to horizontally center the lens and vertically move the lens to
the top or bottom. Otherwise, the distortion is not corrected accurately.
The projected image may become smaller after you perform
H/V-Keystone.
The correction may not be properly performed for some zoom settings.
39
Quick Corner and H/V-Keystone cannot be performed at the same time.
When the Keystone correction method is selected from the
configuration menu, the correction method you choose is assigned to the
[w/ ], [v/ ], [</ ], and [>/ ] buttons on the control panel. The
default setting for Keystone is set to H/V-Keystone, so when [w/ ],
[v/ ], [</ ], and [>/ ] buttons are pressed, H/V-Keystone
correction is carried out.
Because Quick Corner and H/V-Keystone correction can be carried out
while projecting a test pattern, you do not need to make preparations by
connecting a computer or other equipment.

C Use the [h] button on the remote control or the [w/
],
[v/ ], [</ ], and [>/ ] buttons on the control panel to
select the corner you want to adjust, and then press the
[Enter] button.
41
D
To adjust the shape, use the [h] button on the remote
control or the [w/ ], [v/ ], [</ ], and [>/ ] buttons on
the control panel. When you finish adjusting the corner,
press [Esc] or [Enter].
If the triangle in the direction you are adjusting the shape turns
gray, as shown in the screen shot below, you cannot adjust the
shape any further in that direction.
Correcting Distortion in the Projected Image
E Repeat steps 3 and 4 as needed to adjust any remaining
corners.
F When you are done, press the [Esc] button to exit the
correction menu.
Because the correction method was changed to Quick Corner from
Keystone in the configuration menu, when [w/ ], [v/ ],
[</ ], and [>/ ] buttons are pressed later, the screen for selecting the corner in procedure 2 is displayed. Change Keystone from
the configuration menu to H/V-Keystone if you want to correct
H/V-Keystone when pressing the [w/ ], [v/ ], [</ ], and
[>/ ] buttons on the control panel.
If the Esc button is held down for about two seconds while correcting
with Quick Corner, the following screen is displayed.
Reset Quick Corner: Resets the result of Quick Corner corrections.
Switch to H/V-Keystone: Switches the correction method to
H/V-Keystone.

Security
Function
Select one of the following security methods.
When setting up security, follow the instructions from the administrator of the network system you are about to access.
WEP: Data is encrypted with a code key (WEP key)
This mechanism prevents communication unless the encrypted keys for the access point and the projector match.
WPA/WPA2: This is an encryption standard that improves security which is a weak point of WEP. Although there are multiple kinds
of WPA encryption methods, this projector uses "TKIP" and "AES".
WPA also includes user authentication functions. WPA authentication provides two methods: using an authentication server, or
authenticating between a computer and an access point without a server. This projector supports the latter method, without a
server.
EAP: EAP is a protocol used for communication between clients and authentication severs. These are multiple protocols, such as
EAP-TLS which uses electronic certification for user authentication, LEAP which uses user name and password, and EAP-TTLS.

Appendix
This chapter provides information on maintenance procedures to ensure the best level of performance from the projector for a long time to come.
Installation Methods
Installation Methods
The projector can be mounted on a ceiling or placed on a desk. Also, this
projector can project images to various places because it can project
images vertically or horizontally at each 90° angle.
Warning:
118
The Projection setting can be changed from the configuration menu.
s p.73
• Suspend the projector from the
ceiling and project images from
in front of a screen.
• Suspend the projector from the
ceiling and project images from
behind a translucent screen.
• Project images from in front of a
screen.
• Project images from behind a
translucent screen.
• Project images directly up
• Project images directly down
• A special method of installation is required when installing the projector to project
images downward (ceiling mount) or upward. If it is not installed correctly, it could
fall and turnover causing an accident and injury.
• If you use adhesives on the Ceiling mount fixing points to prevent the screws from
loosening, or if you use things such as lubricants or oils on the projector, the
projector case may crack causing it to fall from its ceiling mount. This could cause
serious injury to anyone under the ceiling mount and could damage the projector.
When installing or adjusting the Ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the
screws from loosening and do not use oils or lubricants.
• When mounting the projector on the ceiling, be sure to take measures to prevent it
from falling such as passing a wire through the handles.
Caution:
• Do not install the projector in any positions other than those shown in the following
illustrations, and do not install the projector at any angles other than those shown
in the illustration on s p.119.
• Do not use the projector upside down.
• Set the Direction properly in the configuration menu according to the angle of
installation. s p.73
• Using the projector at an improper angle or with the wrong configuration menu
settings can cause malfunctions and shorten the operating life of optical parts.
An optional Ceiling mount is required when suspending the projector
from a ceiling. s p.129
Installation Methods
Do not install the projector at any angles other than those shown in the
following illustration.
When the projector is mounted, you can remove the projector’s feet and
attach the foot covers, as shown below.

Cleaning
Cleaning
You should clean the projector if it becomes dirty or if the quality of
projected images starts to deteriorate.
Warning:
Do not use sprays containing a flammable gas to remove dirt or dust which is
adhering to parts such as the lens or filter of the projector.
This could cause a fire due to the high temperature of lamps inside the unit.
Cleaning the Projector's Surface
Clean the projector's surface by wiping it gently with a soft cloth.
If the projector is particularly dirty, moisten the cloth with water
containing a small amount of neutral detergent, and then firmly wring
the cloth dry before using it to wipe the projector's surface.
Caution:
Do not use volatile substances such as wax, alcohol, or thinner to clean the projector's
surface. The quality of the case may change or become discolored.
Cleaning the Lens
Use a commercially available cloth for cleaning glasses to gently wipe the
lens.
Caution:
Do not rub the lens with harsh materials or subject the lens to shocks, as it can easily
become damaged.
120
Cleaning the Air filter
Clean the air filter and the air intake vent when the following message is
displayed or the Filter indicator is flashing green.
"Time to clean the air filter."
"Clean or replace the air filter."
Caution:
• If dust collects on the air filter it can cause the internal temperature of the projector
to rise, and this can lead to problems with operation. Clean the air filter
immediately when the message is displayed.
• Do not rinse the air filter in water. Do not use detergents or solvents.
• When using a brush for cleaning, use one with long soft bristles, and brush it lightly.
If it is brushed too strongly, dust will be ground into the air filter and cannot be
removed.
Procedure
A
Press the [t] power button on the remote control or the
back of the projector to turn off the projector's power. After
the confirmation buzzer beeps twice, disconnect the power
cable.

• The lamp replacement message is set to appear after the following time periods in
order to maintain the initial brightness and quality of the projected images.
s p.71
It is time to replace the lamp when:
• The message "Replace the lamp." is displayed at the lower left of the
projection screen when you start projecting.
Power Consumption setting continuously set to Normal: About 2400 hours
Power Consumption setting continuously set to ECO: About 3400 hours
• Do not turn the projector on immediately after turning it off. Turning the projector
on and off frequently may shorten the life of the lamps.
• If you continue to use the lamp after the replacement period has passed, the
possibility that the lamp may explode increases. When the lamp replacement
message appears, replace the lamp with a new one as soon as possible, even if it is
still working.
• Depending on the characteristics of the lamp and the way it has been used, the lamp
may become darker or stop working before the lamp warning message appears. You
should always have two spare lamp units ready in case they are needed.
• The lamp indicator flashes orange.
Replace the lamp indicated by the flashing indicator, either lamp 1 or 2.
How to replace the lamp
The lamp can be replaced even when the projector is suspended from a
ceiling.
Warning:
• When replacing a lamps because it has stopped illuminating, there is a possibility
that the lamp may be broken. When replacing the lamp of a projector that is
installed on the ceiling, you should always assume that the lamp is broken, and you
should stand to the side of the lamp cover, not underneath it. Remove the lamp
cover gently.
• Never disassemble or remodel the lamp. If a remodeled or reassembled lamp is
installed into the projector and used, it could cause a fire, electric shock, or an
accident.
• The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.

Glossary
This section explains easily terms that are used with the projector and difficult terms that are not explained in the text of this guide. For details, refer to
other commercially available publications.
AMX Device Discovery
AMX Device Discovery is a technology developed by AMX to facilitate AMX control systems for easy operation of the target
equipment.
Epson has implemented this protocol technology, and has provided a setting to enable the protocol function (ON).
See the AMX Web site (www.amx.com) for more details.
DHCP
An abbreviation of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, this protocol automatically assigns an IP Address to equipment
connected to a Network.
HDCP
HDCP is an abbreviation for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. It is used to prevent illegal copying and protect
copyrights by encrypting digital signals sent over DVI and HDMI ports. Digital images protected by HDCP technology can be
projected with this projector because the projector's DVI-D and HDMI input ports are compatible with HDCP. However, the
projector may not be able to project images protected with updated or revised versions of HDCP encryption.
HDTV
An abbreviation for High-Definition Television that refers to high-definition systems which satisfy the following conditions.
• Vertical resolution of 720p or 1080i or greater (p = Progressive, i = Interlace)
• Screen Aspect Ratio of 16:9
• Dolby Digital audio reception and playback (or output)
IP Address
A number to identify a computer connected to a Network.
S-Video
A Video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated to provide better image quality.
Refers to images that consist of two independent signals: Y (luminance signal) and C (color signal).
SDTV
An abbreviation for Standard Definition Television that refers to standard television systems which do not satisfy the conditions
for HDTV High-Definition Television.
SNMP
An abbreviation for Simple Network Management Protocol, which is the protocol for monitoring and controlling devices such as
routers and computers connected to a TCP/IP Network.
sRGB
An international standard for color intervals that was formulated so that colors that are reproduced by video equipment can be
handled easily by computer operating systems (OS) and the Internet. If the connected source has an sRGB mode, set both the
projector and the connected signal source to sRGB.
SVGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 800 (horizontal) ^ 600 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
SXGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,280 (horizontal) ^ 1,024 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
Glossary
163
VGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 640 (horizontal) ^ 480 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
XGA
A type of video signal with a resolution of 1,024 (horizontal) ^ 768 (vertical) dots that is used by IBM PC/AT-compatible
computers.
Aspect Ratio
The ratio between an image's length and its height. HDTV images have an aspect ratio of 16:9 and appear elongated. The aspect
ratio for standard images is 4:3.
(Aspect Ratio)
Interlace
A method of image scanning whereby the image data is divided into fine horizontal lines that are displayed in sequence starting
from left to right and then from top to bottom. The even-numbered lines and odd-numbered lines are displayed alternately.
Gateway address
This is a server (router) for communicating across a network (subnet) divided according to subnet masks.
(Gateway Address)
Contrast
The relative brightness of the light and dark areas of an image can be increased or decreased to make text and graphics stand out
more clearly, or to make them appear softer. Adjusting this particular property of an image is called Contrast adjustment.
Component Video
A Video signal which has the luminance component and color component separated to provide better image quality.
Refers to images that consist of three independent signals: Y (luminance signal), Pb and Pr (color difference signals).
Composite video
Video signals that have the video brightness signals and color signals mixed together. The type of signals commonly used by
household video equipment (NTSC, PAL, and SECAM formats). The carrier signal Y (luminance signal) and chroma (color) signal
that are contained in the color bar are overlapped to form a single signal.
Subnet mask
(Subnet Mask)
This is a numerical value that defines the number of bits used for the network address on a divided network (subnet) from the IP
address.
Sync.
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the
resulting images are not of a good quality. The process of matching the phases of these signals (the relative position of the crests
and the troughs in the signal) is called Synchronization. If the signals are not synchronized, flickering, blurriness, and horizontal
interference occur.
Tracking
The signals output from computers have a specific frequency. If the projector frequency does not match this frequency, the
resulting images are not of a good quality. 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 appear in the signal.
Trap IP Address
This is the IP Address for the destination computer used for error notification in SNMP.
Dolby Digital
A sound format developed by Dolby Laboratories. Normal stereo is a 2-channel format that uses two speakers. Dolby Digital is a
6- channel (5.1-channel) system which adds to this a center speaker, two rear speakers, and a sub-woofer.
Progressive
A method of image scanning whereby the image data from a single image is scanned sequentially from top to bottom to create
a single image.
Glossary
Refresh Rate
164
The light-emitting element of a display maintains the same luminosity and color for an extremely short time. Because of this, the
image must be scanned many times per second to refresh the light-emitting element. The number of refresh operations per
second is called the Refresh Rate and is expressed in hertz (Hz).

Important Safety Instructions
• Do not look into the lens when the projector is on. The bright light can
damage your eyes.
General Notes
• Do not carry the projector by yourself. Two people should use the
handles to carry the projector when unpacking or moving it.
• Do not place the projector on an unstable cart, stand, or table. When
projecting images vertically, install the projector correctly and
appropriately to prevent it from turning over and falling.
• Do not operate the projector on its side, while tilted to one side, or
upside down. Do not tilt the projector forward or back at a greater
angle than that specified for vertical keystone correction. s p.159
• If the projector is mounted on a ceiling, it should be installed by
qualified technicians using mounting hardware designed for use with
this projector. Also, when mounting the projector on the ceiling, make
sure to pass a wire through the handles to prevent it from falling.
• If you use a ceiling mount and apply adhesives to the mount to prevent
the screws from loosening, or if you use lubricants or oils on the
projector, the projector case may crack and the projector may fall from
its ceiling mount. This could cause serious injury to anyone under the
mount and could damage the projector. When installing or adjusting a
ceiling mount, do not use adhesives to prevent the screws from
loosening and do not use oils or lubricants.
• Do not stand on the projector or place heavy objects on it.
• Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to rain, water, or
excessive humidity.
• Unplug the projector from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a dry
cloth (or, for stubborn dirt or stains, a moist cloth that has been wrung
dry) for cleaning. Do not use liquid, aerosol cleaners, or solvents such
as alcohol, thinner or benzine.
• Do not use any spray containing a flammable gas to remove dirt or dust
that is adhering to parts such as the lens or filter of the projector.
• Never spill liquid of any kind into the projector.
• Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to excessive dust or
smoke.
166
• Do not use the projector where it may be exposed to flammable,
corrosive, or explosive gases. Because the lamp inside the projector
becomes very hot during use, the gases may ignite and result in a fire.
• Never push objects of any kind through the cabinet slots or openings.
• Do not use or store the projector or remote control in a hot location,
such as near a heater, in direct sunlight, or in a closed vehicle.
• Incorrect battery usage may cause leakage of battery fluid and battery
rupture, which could result in fire, injury or corrosion of the projector.
When replacing batteries, take the following precautions: Insert
batteries so that the polarities (+ and -) are correct, do not use batteries
of different types, do not mix old and new batteries, and do not use any
batteries other than those specified in this User's Guide. Replace the
batteries as soon as they run out and remove the batteries if you will not
be using the projector for a long period of time. Do not expose batteries
to heat or flame and do not put them in water. Dispose of used batteries
according to local regulations. Keep these batteries out of the reach of

extremely hot. Before removing the lamp, turn off the power and wait
at least an hour to allow the lamp to cool completely.
• Do not place the source of an open flame, such as a lit candle, on or near
the projector.
• Do not modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on top of the
power cord or bend, twist, or pull it excessively. Keep the power cord
away from hot electrical appliances.
