Inputs and Outputs Notes
Adjustable Image Size:
The projected image size can be adjusted from 55.1" to 133.1"
diagonal. To achieve a 55.1" picture, the projector must be 7.5' to 10.4'
from the screen. For a 133.1" projected image, the projector must be 18.54'
to 25.72' from the screen. A 55.1" diagonal image is 48" wide and
27" tall, while a 133.1" diagonal image is 116" wide and 65" tall.
System: Digital Light Processing (DLP)
technology from Texas Instruments is the only display solution that creates an
entirely digital connection between a source and the screen in front of you.
Instruments "Matterhorn" DLP Chip:
The 5700 uses a Texas Instruments "Matterhorn" DLP chip with 16:9
native aspect ratio and 1024 x 576-pixel resolution. The built-in
"scaler" converts signal sources to match this imaging device.
De-interlacer with 3-2 Pulldown Processing:
When converting film-based 480i material to a progressive video image, the
motion adaptive deinterlacing prevents the introduction of motion artifacts and
jagged edges. The result is a sharper, noise-free picture with finer details.
The 5700 comes pre-calibrated to the video broadcast standard of 6500K.
Picture Menu: The
Picture Menu gives you the following options:
When the image is projected at an angle, you can use the Keystone feature to
adjust the image vertically, resulting in a squarer image.
controls the degree of difference between the lightest and darkest parts of
the picture and changes the amount of black and white in the image
changes the intensity of the image
adjusts a video image from black and white to fully saturated color. The
color setting applies to video sources only.
adjusts the red-green color balance in the image of NTSC video images. The
tint setting applies to NTSC video sources only.
Ratio: allows you to choose one of
the following aspect ratio settings:
this mode bypasses the internal scaler, displaying the image with no
default is 16:9, which preserves the 16:9 aspect ratio and is designed
to be used with content that is enhanced for Widescreen TVs
resizes the image from its original version to fit a standard 4:3 aspect
ratio screen. If you have a 4:3 source on a 16:9 screen, the image is
placed in a 16:9 space, so black bars appear at the sides of the image.
preserves the 16:9 aspect
ratio. If you have a 16:9 source and screen, the image fills the screen.
If your source is letterboxed, the image expands to fill the screen.
Wide: this mode stretches a 4:3
image to fill the entire 16:9 screen. The center two-thirds of the image
is unchanged; the edges of the image are stretched.
allows you to store up to 3 user-defined presets into memory
Gamma tables contain preset intensity configurations optimized for the input
source. You can select a gamma table that has been specifically tuned for
either film, video, Bright Room, or PC input. White Peaking increases the
brightness of whites that are near 100%.
lets you crop or zoom the input
adjusts the phase of the video signal's digital conversion
adjusts the frequency of the video signal's digital conversion
Position: adjusts the position
of the source
This option refers to Faroudja's TrueLife processing of the image. All
standard definition interlaced video signals (composite, S-video and
component) are routed through this processor. Extended and High
Definition progressive component sources are not routed though this
processor by default. You can turn TrueLife on to route these signals
through the processor and then adjust the following 3 options: Chroma
Detail (adjusts the color sharpness), Luma Detail (adjusts the
sharpness), or Chroma Delay (aligns the Luma and Chroma Detail).
(Cross Color Suppression) processes the signal to remove any color
information from the luma portion of the signal. It is On for all
composite signals, and can be turned off for S-video and interlaced
Reduction: adjusts signal noise
reduction. You can choose Off to have no noise reduction, choose Auto to
have the software determine the amount of noise reduction, or choose
Manual and adjust the level.
Bypass: prevents the noise
reduction processing from being applied to skin tones
Temperature: changes the intensity
of the colors
Control: allows you to individually
adjust the gain (relative warmth of the color) and the offset (the amount of
black in the color) of the red, green, and blue colors
Standard: When it is set to Auto,
the projector attempts to pick the video standard automatically based on the
input signal it receives. If the projector is unable to detect the correct
standard, the colors may not look right or the image may appear
"torn." If this happens, manually select a video standard by
selecting NTSC, PAL, or SECAM from the Video Standard menu.
Settings Menu: The
Settings Menu gives you the following options:
allows you to assign a particular input to a specific source key on the
remote and enables or disables Autosource. When Autosource is not checked,
the projector defaults to the last-used source. If no source is found, a
blank screen displays. When Autosource is checked, the projector checks the
last-used source first at power up. If no signal is present, the projector
checks the sources in order until a source is found or until power down. You
can use the Source Enable feature to eliminate certain sources from this
search, which will speed the search.
You can adjust the following System settings:
the image so you can project from behind a translucent screen
turns the image upside down for ceiling-mounted projection
Messages: displays status
messages (such as "Searching") in the lower-left corner of the
Power: turn this on to increase
the light output of the lamp. This also shortens lamp life and increases
OSD: makes the menus
turn this on to hear a sound when the Power button is pressed
Timer: allows you to force the
projector to automatically shutoff after 4 hours
Logo: allows you to display a blank
Black, White, or Blue screen instead of the default screen at startup and
when no source is active or detected
Screen: determines what color
displays when you press the Blank button on the remote or when no source is
detected. You can choose one of the following colors: black, white, or blue.
allows you to select a language for the onscreen display of menus and
Pattern: displays a test
pattern when the Blank button on the remote is pressed
Only: turns off the Red and
Green portions of the input, allowing you to properly adjust the color
balance with an SMPTE color bar pattern
Wheel Index: makes the hue of
various gray levels consistent
Calibration: allows adjustment
of the calibrated ADC values so that color accuracy can be optimized
Power Save: The
projector has a Power Save feature that automatically turns the lamp off after
no signals are detected for 20 minutes. After 10 additional minutes with no
signal, the projector powers down. If an active signal is received before the
projector powers down, the image is displayed.
Security Lock: The
5700 has a security lock for use with a PC Guardian Cable Lock System.
Using the thick ring around the lens, you can adjust the projector's zoom, while
the thin ring allows you to adjust the focus.
Height: If necessary, you can adjust
the height of the projector by pressing the release button to extend the
elevator foot. Once the foot is extended, you may need to adjust the leveling
foot located at the rear of the projector.
The supplied remote allows you to control all the projector's functions, except
Keystone, focus, and zoom. Using the backlight button, you can make the buttons
illuminate for approximately 10 seconds.
Options: The optional SP-CEIL-005B
Digital Projector Mount lets you mount the 5700 to your ceiling or wall.
Projection Lamp: The lamp hour timer in
the About menu counts the number of hours the lamp has been in use. After 1980
hours, the message "Change lamp" briefly appears on the screen at each
startup. To maintain optimal video performance, it is recommend that the lamp be
changed after 2000 hours, depending usage.
