Function

Adjust the equalizer value for DVI terminals.

Choose lower values for higher amplification, or higher values for lower amplification.

Example of equalizer settings

• Decrease values to amplify signals that have been attenuated by a long cable.

• Signals may be too strong if noise occurs when using a short cable, or when using an active cable, signal corrector, or repeater. If so, increase values to attenuate and correct the signals.

• When a dual-link cable is used, any noise in the signal line may prevent normal projection. If this occurs, set [DVI dual link auto setting] to [Off].

• In some cases when DVI terminals are used, the cable may not be a good match for the projector, which may cause video noise or prevent the signal from being detected. If this occurs, adjust values in each setting from [DVI-1 equalizer setting] to

[DVI-4 equalizer setting].

• For details on using PJLink, see “Setting PJLink [PJLink]” ( P151 ).

What is PJLink?

In September 2003, the PJLink Working Group was established under the Data Projector

Committee. During the first year, this PJLink Working Group standardized PJLink as a new interface specification for projectors.

PJLink is a unified standard for operation and control of projectors.

It allows centralized control of projectors and operation from a controller for all projectors regardless of manufacturer.

The objective is for JBMIA to improve convenience for users and expand the use of projectors through early systemization for network monitoring and control of projectors, which will become the mainstream in the future.

Class 1: Standardization of control and monitoring specifications for basic projector functions

Basic projector control: Power control, input selection, etc.

Acquisition of projector information and status: Power status, input selection status, error status, lamp use time, etc.

JBMIA: Japan Business Machine and Information System Industries Association.

The JBMIA is an organization which was launched in 1960 and changed its name on April 1, 2002.

Projecting from Multiple Projectors at Once

(Edge Blending)

The brightness of overlapping image edges from multiple projectors used together can be adjusted to make them blend in better.

Basic Instructions

Follow these steps when using two projectors side by side.

1

In the [Install settings] menu, select [Professional settings] > [Edge blending] > [Adjust].

• If you have already completed edge blending settings, selecting [Adjust] will apply them.

• To redo adjustment from the beginning, select [Reset].

2

Set [Marker] to [On].

Marker lines are projected on the images. The red marker indicates the start position for adjustment, and the green marker, the end position.

By default, the green and red markers are displayed in the same position, so only the red marker is visible.

3

5

Adjust [Start position] for the side where images overlap. Move the start marker to the outer edge of the overlapping area, or press a number button on the remote control to specify the start position.

Adjust [Width]. Move the end marker to the inner edge of the overlapping area, or press a number button on the remote control to specify the width of the area to correct.

The area between the starting and ending markers is called the blending area.

Values indicated for this blending area are adjusted to match manually entered blending area values. Shading is applied to this area, and the brightness is adjusted to match portions that overlap with other areas. After you complete settings for one image, do the same thing for the other one to specify the blending area. Adjust the settings to make the blending area for each image the same.

Set [Marker] to [Off].

In overlapping projection, portions of images in the overlapping area that pick up other colors or are miscolored may be more noticeable. You can make this overlapping area appear less distracting by performing Color blending adjustment.

1

In the [Install settings] menu, select [Professional settings] > [Edge blending] > [Adjust] > [Color blending adjustment] > [Adjust].

2

As you watch the image, adjust the value to eliminate unwanted colors in the overlapping area.

3

First adjust red, green, and blue together by changing the [White] value, and then adjust [Red], [Green], and [Blue] values individually.

Repeat this adjustment on all projectors.

Black Level Adjustment

In overlapping projection, dark colors are projected with less intensity than other colors in the overlapping area. You can make this overlapping area less distracting by adjusting the black level of non-overlapping image areas.

Left image Right image

Area where dark colors look lighter

Position of end marker (hidden)

D-area Blending area

Here, the non-overlapping image area (from the end marker toward the center of the image) is called area “D.”

Normally, three areas are identified in the context of end markers: A, B, and C.

In the following instructions, only area D is adjusted, and the widths of A, B, and C are left at the default value of 0.

To prepare for adjustment, set [No signal screen] to [Black], start projection with no input

signal, and turn off the room lights, so that you can check dark image areas. ( P119 )

In the [Install settings] menu, select [Professional settings] > [Edge blending] > [Adjust] > [Black level adjustment] > [Adjust].

Select [Adjustment type] > [Black level].

After selecting [D-area base], as you watch the image, adjust the values so that the brightness and colors of the blending area and area D match.

4

Adjust [D-area base] to lighten the black level, and adjust [Red], [Green], and

[Blue] to obtain an optimal black level color tone, as needed.

Repeat this adjustment on all projectors.

Smoother Overlapping Areas

The black level along the right edge of area D (along the blending area) may be more noticeable than that of surrounding areas.

By adjusting the black level of area B, you can make the transition smoother.

To compensate, adjust each area as follows.

Left image

D-area

Position of end marker (hidden)

Area A: Black level cannot be adjusted.

Area B: Adjust to a black level different from that of area

D.

Area C: Adjust to provide a smooth transition relative to the black levels of areas B and D.

Blending area

Areas C–A (default width: 0)

When the projected image has multiple blending areas (on the top, bottom, and each side), the width of areas A, B, and C must be adjusted to suit these blending areas.

In this example, instructions are given for adjusting area B.

1

In the [Install settings] menu, select [Professional settings] > [Edge blending] > [Adjust] > [Black level adjustment] > [Adjust].

2

Select [Adjustment type] > [Area] > [Side] > [Right].

3

Select [B-width], and then specify the width of area B.

Adjust the width of area B so that it roughly matches the area where the black level of area B stands out. This will make the width of area D narrower.

4

Select [Adjustment type] > [Black level]. Adjust [B-area base] as you watch the image.

• Results of adjusting the black level of area B are applied to all sides.

• Blending can be fine-tuned by adjusting [Adjustment type] > [Black level] > [Red],

[Green], and [Blue].

6

As you watch the image, adjust the width of areas A, B, and C.

Readjust the black level of area B, as needed.

To reduce distracting colors and colors that are out of alignment in areas where the images overlap, perform [Color blending adjustment] targeting the main tone in the envisaged projected image.

If you perform adjustments using [Color blending adjustment] or other menus, that may not eliminate the distracting colors and differences in brightness in areas where the images overlap.

Advanced Registration to Adjust Projected

Images

This feature enables precise correction of red, green, or blue misalignment in different areas of the screen by color and area.

Two methods of registration are available: 5-point adjustment (using points in the corners and center of the screen) and more precise manual adjustment based on

54 points (in a 6 x 9 grid).

Any values you set in 5-point adjustment are retained if you subsequently perform manual adjustment. For more precise correction after 5-point adjustment, perform manual adjustment.

• Adjust zoom and lens shift as needed before using [Advanced registration].

• Performing keystone adjustment will prevent accurate adjustment with [Advanced registration]. If keystone adjustment is required, complete adjustment with [Advanced registration] first.

Registration Using 5-Point Adjustment

5-point adjustment enables basic correction of color misalignment across the screen, by moving adjustment points in each corner and the center.

1

In the [Install settings] menu, select [Professional settings] > [RGB alignment] > [Advanced registration] > [Adjust] > [5-point adjustment] >

[Adjust].

The projector enters 5-point adjustment mode, and a chart is displayed.

• Charts (point selection windows) of two different sizes are used, depending on the

[Panel drive mode] setting.

• With advanced registration, checkered or halftone image areas may be affected by uneven colors or image artifacts.
