Projector Feature Guide

Picture Performance

Daylight View

Daylight View technology enhances image visibility even under bright lighting. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination. Because it produces easy-to-see images without having to increase the lamps' output power, it helps to reduce power consumption.
With System Daylight View, the setting can be changed manually to optimize image color perception depending on the usage environment.

Detail Clarity Processor

An advanced image-processing circuit analyzes the video signal frequency range for each scene by extracting data on the distribution of high, mid, and low-frequency components, and brings out fine details accordingly. The resulting images have a more natural, three-dimensional appearance with crisp, clear detail.

RGB Booster

The RGB Booster achieves high image quality with a level of brightness and color reproduction that makes each color stand out.
It consists of the following two functions:

• Vivid Color Control:
This unique control technology optimizes the use of the color segment areas of the color wheel.
It increases the brightness of each RGB color by minimizing the unallocated portions between the colors,
to achieve truly vivid coloring.

• Lamp Modulation Drive System:
It controls the lamp intensity for each of the red, green, blue, and white segments of the color wheel separately.
Because the actual light output is controlled in relation to each color segment, light usage is optimized and
color balance is obtained without lowering the brightness.

In addition, models equipped with Dynamic RGB Booster analyze images frame by frame, and modulate the lamp output to match each scene. This achieves optimal brightness and color reproduction for a wide variety of scenes.

Useful Features

Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the DIGITAL LINK-ready projectors allow transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations. Hence, it is a cost-effective, long-distance and high-quality digital transmission solution.

By combining the optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, with its HDMI and other input terminals, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 feet) over a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. It allows projector connection with only one cable, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Also, because control signals can be simultaneously transmitted, the ET-YFB100G input signal can easily be switched with the wireless remote control that is included with the projector. The projector can be controlled by either serial or LAN communication.

DIGITAL LINK technology allows simple new 1 to 1 system.

Advantages:・A cost effective approach to cabling and layout・Digital transmission provides less signal degradation・Allows long distance transmission with a single cable

* Select the Menu for setting.
** In addition to the speaker, an audio amplifier is necessary.

Maintenance/Installation

Filter System

Some lamp-based projectors use long-life filter systems, such as the Auto Cleaning Filter and the Eco Filter. A long replacement cycle reduces the hassle of maintenance. We also have SOLID SHINE Series projectors, which feature a filter-free system.

Auto Cleaning Filter

The Auto Cleaning Filter (ACF) automatically winds the filter and cleans its surface when the clog sensor detects dust and at preset time intervals.

Auto Cleaning Filter

Eco Filter

The Eco Filter has an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles with an ion effect. The filter is pleated to increase the dust-trapping capability for a long duration. In addition, as an environmental consideration, the filter can be washed with water and reused.*

* When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one.

Eco Filter

Filter-free System

SOLID SHINE Series projectors with the new LED/Laser-combined light source require no filter replacement due to carefully engineered sealed optics.
You enjoy maintenance-free use for about 20,000 hours* while maintaining excellent brightness and picture quality.

* A guideline for light source replacement. The maintenance-free period may be shortened due to environmental conditions.

Filter-free System

Wide Lens Shift

The wide shift range accommodates various room sizes and shapes.
When lights or ventilation holes are located in the ceiling mounting site, you can simply relocate the projector to avoid them.

Example of Vertical / Horizontal Lens Shift

Note: This illustration shows the vertical/horizontal lens shift (possible projector setting range) of the PT-RZ370 when mounted to the ceiling.

Geometric Adjustment

This function adjusts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical and other specially shaped screens. You can make the adjustment easily using only the remote control, with no external equipment needed.

Multi-Screen Support System

The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge blending, color matching and multi-screen processor.*

Edge Blending

The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.

Color Matching

This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors.

Multi-Screen Processor*

Projectors can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.

* The Multi-Screen Processor is included only on certain models. For details, see the relevant product pages.
