Adjusting the Display
Signal Compatibility
The PA 300 processes VGA-UXGA, RGBHV, RGBS, RGBsB,
RsGsBs, HDTV, and component video signals.
Potentiometer Adjustments
The PA 300 achieves superior amplification by using two
independent peaking potentiometers: LF for streaking
adjustment and HF for detail adjustment.
The goal in adjusting the PA 300 Gain and Peaking
potentiometers is to produce a sharp image (i.e., an image free
of streaking or smearing) on the attached display.
An oscilloscope is required for the most accurate gain
adjustment, but gain can also be adjusted by observation. The
following instructions explain how to adjust the gain with
and without the use of an oscilloscope. An oscilloscope is not
necessary for the peaking adjustment.
Adjusting gain with an oscilloscope
To adjust the Gain potentiometer using an oscilloscope:
1.
Remove the cable from the source and attach a VTG 300
test generator to this cable.
2. Use the White Field test pattern for the VTG 300 setting.
3. Remove the far end of the cable from the projector and
attach the oscilloscope using 75 ohm termination.
4. Use an Extron Tweeker to adjust the Gain potentiometer
for a 0.7 Vp-p reading from white (top) to black (bottom) of
the waveform.
5. Once gain is successfully adjusted, replace the source and
display cables.
6. See "Adjusting the peaking" on the following page.
Adjusting gain without an oscilloscope
Use an Extron Tweeker to turn the Gain potentiometer until the
image reaches the desired level of brightness.

PA 300 Peaking Amplifier • Adjusting the Display
Adjusting the peaking
To adjust the Peaking potentiometers, do the following:
1. Using MS Paint and a spreadsheet, create a testing image
on your PC desktop that includes squares, lines, text, and
gradations of color. Use the illustration below as a guide.
2. Adjust the LF (low frequency) potentiometer until the
image is free of streaking. When the LF is over adjusted,
the streaking is the same color as the image, as shown
below.
PA 300 Peaking Amplifier • Adjusting the Display
3-3
Adjusting the Display, cont’d
When the LF is under adjusted, the streaking is the inverse
color of the image, as shown below.
The potentiometer should be adjusted midway between
these two extremes.
3. Adjust the HF potentiometer until both text and icon
images appear sharp. When HF is over adjusted, ghosting
may appear, as illustrated below.
When the HF is under adjusted, smearing may appear, as
shown below.
3-4
The potentiometer should be adjusted midway between
these two extremes.
4. Alternate between adjusting the HF and LF potentiometers
until the display shows a clear and sharp image.
