3

Check with your MIS or network administrator whether the SMTP server function is open for the projector and the IP assigned to the projector is allowed to access the SMTP server. The projector’s SMTP socket port number is 25, this cannot be changed.

Check if the out going SMTP server, user name, and password are set correctly.

Some SMTP servers will check whether the mail address of "From" correlates with the

"User name" and "Password". For example, you use [email protected] as the mail address in

"From". You should also use [email protected] account information for the User name and the password to log in the SMTP server.

Why am I unable to receive the test alert email even though the projector already indicates the test mail is already sent?

It could be because the SMTP server recognized the alert mail as a spam mail or because of the SMTP server restriction. Check with your MIS or network administrator for the SMTP server’s setting.

NOTE:

The lamp life rating for any projector is a measure of brightness degradation only, and is not a specification for the time it takes a lamp to fail and cease light output. Lamp life is defined as the time it takes for more than 50 percent of a lamp sample population to have brightness decrease by approximately 50 percent of the rated lumens for the specified lamp. The lamp life rating is not guaranteed in any way. 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, many hours per day and abrupt powering-off will most likely result in a lamp’s shortened operating life span or possible lamp failure.

Appendix: Glossary

ANSI L

UMENS

A standard for measuring the brightness. It is calculated by dividing a square meter image into nine equal rectangles, measuring the lux (or brightness) reading at the center of each rectangle, and averaging these nine points.

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.

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 — The color appearance of white light. Low color temperature implies warmer (more yellow/red) light while high color temperature implies a colder (more blue) light. The standard unit for color temperature is

Kelvin (K).

Component Video — A method of delivering quality video in a format that consists of the luminance signal and two separate chrominance signals and are defined as Y'Pb'Pr' for analog component and Y'Cb'Cr' for digital component.

Component video is available on DVD players.

Composite Video — A video signal that combines the luma (brightness), chroma

(color), burst (color reference), and sync (horizontal and vertical synchronizing signals) into a signal waveform carried on a single wire pair. There are three kind of formats, namely, NTSC, PAL and SECAM.

Compressed Resolution — If the input images are of higher resolution than the native resolution of the projector, the resulting image will be scaled to fit the native resolution of the projector. The nature of compression in a digital device means that some image content is lost.

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.

Glossary 75

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 9 ft high, 12 ft wide, screen has a diagonal of 15 ft. This document assumes that the diagonal dimensions are for the traditional 4:3 ratio of a computer image as per the example above.

DHCP — Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol — A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign a TCP/IP address to a device.

DLP

®

Digital Light Processing™ — Reflective display technology developed by

Texas Instruments, using small manipulated mirrors. Light passing 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.

DNS — Domain Name System — An internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses.

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 (Hertz).

HDCP — High-Bandwidth Digital-Content Protection — A specification developed by Intel™ Corporation to protect digital entertainment across digital interface, such as DVI and HDMI.

HDMI — High-Definition Multimedia Interface — HDMI carries both uncompressed high definition video along with digital audio and device control data in a single connector.

Hz (Hertz) — Unit of 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.

Maximum Distance — The distance from a screen the projector can be to cast an image that is usable (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.

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

76 Glossary

NTSC — National Television Standards Committee. North American standard for video and broadcasting, with a video format of 525 lines at 30 frames per second.

PAL — Phase Alternating Line. A European broadcast standard for video and broadcasting, with a video format of 625 lines at 25 frames per second.

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, closely related to PAL but with a different method of sending color information.

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

SXGA — Super Extended 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 — Extended Video Graphics Array — 1024 x 768 pixels count.

WXGA — Wide Extended Graphics Array — 1280 x 800 pixels count.

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 project 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.
