Chapter 5   Operations — Network connection

Network connection

The projector is equipped with the network function, and following is possible by connecting to a computer.

f Web control

Setting, adjustment, and displaying status of the projector are possible by accessing the projector from a computer.

Refer to “Using the web control function” ( x

page 154) for details.

f

Multi Monitoring & Control Software

“Multi Monitoring & Control Software”, a software application to monitor and control multiple display devices

(projector or flat panel display) connected to intranet, can be used.

Plug-in software “Early Warning Software”, which monitors the status of the display devices and their peripherals within an intranet, and notifies of abnormality of such equipment and detects the signs of possible abnormality, can also be used.

For details, visit the website (https://panasonic.net/cns/projector/).

f

PJLink

Operation or status query of the projector can be performed from a computer using the PJLink protocol.

Refer to “Using the PJLink function” ( x page 199) for details.

f Art-Net

Setting of the projector can be operated by the DMX controller or application software using the Art-Net protocol.

Refer to “Using Art-Net function” ( x

page 200) for details.

f

Command control

Operation or status query of the projector can be performed from a computer using the control command.

Refer to “Control commands via LAN” ( x

page 204) for details.

Note f

Setting the password of the administrator account ( x

page 140) is required for using the network function of the projector.

If the password of the administrator account has not been set, that is, if it is left blank, the network function of this projector cannot be used.

Set a password before using the web control function or the communication control (including operation with application software) via LAN.

Connecting via wired LAN

This projector can receive the Ethernet signal from the twisted-pair-cable transmitter via the LAN cable.

Example of general network connection

Computer

Projector

LAN cable (straight) LAN cable (straight)

Switching hub

Attention f

When a LAN cable is directly connected to the projector, the network connection must be made indoors.

Note f

A LAN cable is required to use the network function.

f

Use a straight or crossover LAN cable that is compatible with CAT5 or higher. Either the straight or the crossover cable, or both cables can be used depending on the system configuration. Consult your network administrator. The projector will determine the type of the cable (straight or crossover) automatically.

f

Use a LAN cable of 100 m (328'1") or shorter.

Projector

LAN cable (straight) LAN cable (straight) LAN cable (straight)

Switching hub

Twisted-pair-cable transmitter

Attention f

When a LAN cable is directly connected to the projector, the network connection must be made indoors.

Note f

For the LAN cable between the twisted-pair-cable transmitter and the projector, use a cable that meets the following criteria: g

Conforming to CAT5e or higher standards g

Shielded type (including connectors) g

Straight-through g

Single wire g

Diameter of the cable core is same or larger than AWG24 (AWG24, AWG23, etc.) f

The maximum transmission distance between the twisted-pair-cable transmitter and the projector is 100 m (328'1") for the signal with resolution of 1 920 x 1 200 dots or less. For the signal with the resolution exceeding 1 920 x 1 200 dots, the maximum transmission distance is 50 m (164'1"). It is possible to transmit up to 150 m (492'2") if the twisted-pair-cable transmitter supports the long-reach communication method. However, the signal that the projector can receive is only up to 1080/60p (1 920 x 1 080 dots, dot clock frequency 148.5 MHz) for the long-reach communication method. If these distances are exceeded, image may be disrupted or a malfunction may occur in LAN communication.

f

When laying cables between the twisted-pair-cable transmitter and the projector, confirm that cable characteristics are compatible with

CAT5e or higher using tools such as a cable tester or cable analyzer.

When a relay connector is used, include it in the measurement.

f

Do not use a switching hub between the twisted-pair-cable transmitter and the projector.

f

To transmit the Ethernet and serial control signals using the <DIGITAL LINK/LAN> terminal, set the [NETWORK] menu → [ETHERNET

TYPE] to [DIGITAL LINK] or [LAN & DIGITAL LINK].

f

To transmit the Ethernet signal using the <LAN> terminal, set the [NETWORK] menu → [ETHERNET TYPE] to [LAN] or [LAN & DIGITAL

LINK].

f

The <DIGITAL LINK/LAN> terminal and the <LAN> terminal are connected inside of the projector when the [NETWORK] menu → [ETHERNET

TYPE] is set to [LAN & DIGITAL LINK]. Do not directly connect the <DIGITAL LINK/LAN> terminal and the <LAN> terminal using a LAN cable. Construct the system so that it is not connected to the same network via the peripherals such as the switching hub or the twisted-paircable transmitter.

f

Do not pull cables forcefully. Also, do not bend or fold cables unnecessarily.

f

To reduce the effects of noise as much as possible, stretch out the cables between the twisted-pair-cable transmitter and the projector without any loops.

f

Lay the cables between the twisted-pair-cable transmitter and the projector away from other cables, particularly power cables.

f

When laying multiple cables, run them side by side along the shortest distance possible without bundling them together.

f

After laying the cables, go to the [NETWORK] menu → [DIGITAL LINK] → [DIGITAL LINK STATUS] and confirm that the value of [SIGNAL

QUALITY] is displayed in green which indicates normal quality.

f

For twisted-pair-cable transmitters of other manufacturers of which the operation has been verified with the projector, visit the website (https:// panasonic.net/cns/projector/). Note that the verification for devices of other manufacturers has been made for the items set by Panasonic

Connect Co., Ltd., and not all the operations have been verified. For operation or performance problems caused by the devices of other manufacturers, contact the respective manufacturers.
