Using other cables or cords may lead to malfunction and permanent damage to the unit. • Always use 3-prong (grounded) power cord to ensure proper grounding of the unit. Never use 2-prong power cords, as this is dangerous and could lead to electrical shock. • Never open the unit. The projector contains no user serviceable parts. Refer all repairs to qualified personnel only. Make sure that no objects enter into the vents and openings of the set. • Do not spill any liquids on the projector or into the vents or openings of the unit. • Always remove lens cap before switching on the projector. If the lens cap is not re- moved, it may melt due to the high energy light emitted through the lens. Melting the lens cap may permanently damage the surface of the projection lens. • Do not look into the projection lens when the projector is switched on. The strong light may permanently damage sight. • Only place the projector on a stable surface, or mount it securely using an approved ceiling-mount. • Do not drop the projector. • Always operate the projector according to the rotation guidelines. Operating the unit in other positions may reduce lamp life significantly, and may lead to overheating, resulting in malfunctioning. • Always allow ample airflow through the projector. Never block any of the air vents. Never cover the unit in any way while running. Allow for sufficient distance to walls and ceilings to avoid overheating. • Minimum safety distance to any side of the unit is 50cm / 20” in any direction (15 cm/ 6” to ceiling). • Hot air is exhausted from the rear vent. Do not place objects that are sensitive to heat nearer than 50cm / 20” to the exhaust vent. • The projector is designed for indoor use only. Never operate the unit outdoors. • Do not operate the projector outside its temperature and humidity specifications, as this may result in overheating and malfunctioning. • Only connect the projector to signal sources and voltages as described in the technical specification. Connecting to unspecified signal sources or voltages may lead to malfunc- tion and permanent damage of the unit. • In order to prevent damage to the projector caused by over-voltages (e.g. lightning), we recommend connection to a line (mains) circuit which has over voltage protection. • Allow lamp to cool down for at least 60 minutes before changing. USE ONLY ORIGINAL LAMPS. • Connecting sources to a powered projector may result in product failure. It is recom- mended that the power cable connector (projector-end) or the mains power socket is accessible whilst the product is in use to enable mains power to be disconnected or switched off when connecting source devices. This should be considered during product installation. 2.2 Information/Warning - Potential Mercury Vapour Health Issues This projector uses a very powerful UHPTM lamp for illumination to produce an extremely bright image. This technology is similar to other high-pressure discharge lamps that are extensively used in cars, street lights and other lighting appliances today. These lamps, like fluorescent lighting, contain small amounts of mercury. The amount of mercury present in a lamp is far below the limits of danger set by the authorities. It is however very important that lamps containing mercury are treated properly to minimize potential health hazards. The UHPTM lamp, like any other high brightness projector lamp, is operating under high-pres- sure. Even if the lamp and the projector are carefully designed to minimize the probability of lamp rupture, the lamp may break while operating and small amounts of mercury vapour may be emitted from the projector. The probability of rupture increases when the lamp reaches its expected lifetime. It is therefore highly recommended that the lamp is replaced when the specified lifetime is reached. As a general precaution, secure good ventilation in the room when operating the projector. If lamp rupture occurs, evacuate the room and secure good ventilation. Children and pregnant women in particular should leave the room. When replacing a worn lamp, dispose of the used lamp carefully by proper recycling. Mercury is a naturally occurring, stable metallic element that may pose a safety risk to people under certain conditions. According to the Public Health Statement for Mercury published by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (“ATSDR”, part of the United States Public Health Service), the brain, central nervous system and kidneys are sensitive to the effects of mercury, and permanent damage can occur at sufficiently high levels of exposure. Acute exposure to high concentrations of mercury vapour can cause conditions such as lung and airway irritation, tightness in the chest, a burning sensation in the lungs, coughing, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Children and fetuses are particularly sensitive to the harmful effects of metallic mercury to the nervous system. Seek medical attention if any of the above symptoms are experienced or if other unusual conditions are experienced following lamp rupture.

Power Cable (Country Dependent) Remote Control User Documentation 14 User Manual - Introduction F50 User Manual - What’s in the box? 154 Installation 4.1 System considerations Please refer to Chapter 5 Overview for an explanation on the various features of the projector. Installation should only be performed by trained and skilled personnel in order to achieve the desired results. Safety first: Projectors and other equipment that are not mounted properly represent a potential danger to people and may result in injury or death! Creating a successful system installation requires proper skills, competencies and knowledge of the particular system requirements. In addition to knowing the expected performance, ambient conditions and all the components that form the complete system, including Image Generation (IG), cabling, control system, screens and projectors. An installation often consists of multiple projectors, long cables and several IG’s, as well as intermediate system components like signal converters and line buffers. Make sure that: • IG properties like pixel resolution and frame refresh match those of the projector • Choice of signal interface and cable lengths match. o HDBaseT and 3G-SDI are so called long-haul interfaces, suitable for bespoke installation on the premises using relatively long cables. o DP, HDMI, DVI and VGA are all short-haul interfaces using pre-assembled cables with limited cable lengths. Using extended cable lengths may result in reduced image quality as well as loss of control information such as EDID (Extended Display Information Data). • Signal amplifiers, switches and other components should convey EDID and other control information. However, unfortunately many times EDID data is lost in translation under way, potentially resulting in images of reduced pixel resolution and wrong aspect ratio. A successful installation takes all relevant parameters into account to achieve great imagery! 4.2 Ventilation Minimum safety distance to any side of the unit is 50cm / 20” in any direction. Hot air is exhausted from the rear vent. Do not place objects that are sensitive to heat closer than 50cm / 20” to the exhaust vent. Figure 4-1. Positioning the projector When the projector is ceiling mounted using an exhaust air kit* (accessory) the minimum distance between projector and roof is 15cm. 4.2.1 Ventilation accessories A set of optional accessories is available for this projector, covering anything from cables and lenses to air flow parts and lens control. For information on availability, specifications and pricing, please refer to our web site: http://www.barco.com F50 User User Manual Manual - Introduction - Installation 16 15cm* 50cm 50cm 50cm 17 4.3 Ceiling and rig mounting Use the three mounting holes provided in the bottom part to securely fix the projector to a ceiling or rig mount. Use M6 screws that protrude maximum 9mm into the projector body. Figure 4-2. Ceiling/rig mounting mounting holes 4.4 Locking the projector The projector can be locked physically by using a so called Kensington lock. The Kensington lock hole, where the lock itself is attached, can be found on the back of the projector. Use an approved locking cable to secure the projector to a solid object. 4.5 Projector angle (tilt) The projector should be tilted maximum +/- 20 degrees from level (flat/ceiling) position. It can be rotated 360 degrees around the lens axis. Tilting at higher degrees may reduce lamp life and increase the probability of overheat- ing the projector. Installation outside these specifications can void the guarantee. Figure 4-3. Tilting angles +20o 360o -20o 4.6 Selecting a lens The projector is delivered without a lens, enabling you to select a lens according to your desired image size and projection distance. The projector uses a bayonet mount system to precisely fix the lens in place. The lenses are manual, meaning zoom, focus and iris adjust- ments are done by hand manually. Lens shift is motorized (horizontally and vertically). Use only the original projection lenses or lenses that have been approved for use with the projector. Figure 4-4. The protection lid A protection lid is mounted on the projector lens opening to protect the interior of the projector from dust and damage. The protection lid must always be in place whenever there is no lens mounted on the projector! The protection lid must be removed before attaching a lens! The projection lenses are supplied with protection caps on both the entry and exit sides. Please keep the caps on until mounting the lens on the projector! Remove lens protection caps before mounting the lens and using the projector. Figure 4-5.

For information on locking the adjustment rings in one position, please refer to section 3.10 Zoom, focus and iris. Figure 4-6. Zoom and Focus Lens lock screws (one on each lens ring) 4.8 Lens shift Most of the projection lenses are shiftable horizontally (both directions) and vertically (up). Some lenses, typically wide angle lenses (on-axis type) only have a very little shift range. Please refer to the individual lens specifications found on the web for actual shift range. Figure 4-7. Horizontal (both directions) and vertical (up/down) lens shift Lens shift is motorized and the lens can be shifted either by using the keypad, the wireless remote control or through the wired control interface. For an overview of the lens shift adjust- ment range for the various lenses, please refer to section 3.6.3 Lens range. • Using the keypad on the projector, press OK and then OK again to center lens, or use the arrow keys to position (restricted downwards movability). • Using the remote control, press the OK key to center the lens or arrow keys to position it (restricted downwards movability). • Using the RS-232 or LAN control interfaces, please refer to the relevant SIS (Simplified Instruction Set) commands available for download on http://www.barco.com F50 User User Manual Manual - Introduction - Installation 20 21 4.9 Lens planarity (Scheimpflug adjustment) This adjustment is rarely needed, do not apply it unless it is required. Certain applications require fine adjustment of the lens planarity in order to obtain an image that is focused. The projector is fitted with three adjustment screws (Allen key 3mm/5mm) around the bayonet mount that facilitate such adjustment, a so called Scheimpflug adjust- ment. Do not attempt adjusting without the required technical competence and refer to the service manual found on our web for further info. Figure 4-8. Scheimpflug Adjustment Screws 4.10 Zoom, focus and iris These lens functions are manual (not motorized). • First adjust zoom to achieve the desired image size (if the lens has a zoom-function). • Then adjust focus to achieve a sharp image. If the image is not sharp all over the sur- face, please check the surface flatness and whether the lens axis is perpendicular to the projection surface. • Use the iris to adjust the contrast and focus depth of the image. Adjusting the iris will affect the brightness; stopping the iris down increases contrast and image depth, but reduces brightness. • The zoom, focus and, iris rings can be locked in position for typical motion based instal- lations to secure that the picture settings are not changed. Tighten the pre-installed M3 screws on each ring to lock the movement, using a 1.5mm Allen key, until the rings can not be turned. Figure 4-9. Positioning of Zoom, Focus and Iris rings (may vary on some lenses) Zoom IrisFocus 4.11 Making the connections The projector is equipped with multiple signal and control interfaces to support various video and data sources (see connector panel below), as well as different control systems. Always make sure that the projector is powered off before connecting any signal and/ or control cables. Long cables may cause distorted or even failing signal quality. Always make sure best quality cables are used, and take into consideration the cable length limitations apply- ing to the various interface standards. 4.12 Connecting video and data sources Choice of connectivity depends on the installation requirements as well as the sources connected. Generally, digital interfaces are preferred over analog. Multiple signals can be connected in parallel to allow for a selection of sources to be viewed in sequence. Attach the interfaces of choice and make sure all connectors are fully inserted and retained. 4.13 Connecting control interfaces Power off the projector and the source! Choice of control interface depends on the installation requirements. Attach the interfaces of choice and make sure all connectors are fully inserted and retained. Please see the relevant SIS (Simplified Instruction Set) commands available for download on http://www.barco.com for easy access to more information. Power up the projector and the source! 4.14 Source format integrity – EDID If using 3rd party system equipment, such as signal repeaters or switchers, please make sure that EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) information is not lost in translation. Wrong EDID data may result in distorted images, wrong aspect ratios or reduced image resolutions.

This chapter describes details in using these features. All color calibration is done using Barco’s proprietary RealColorTM solu- tion. 7.1 Calibration data All Barco projectors are measured and calibrated with high precision equipment at the factory for the best out-of-box experience. Over the lifetime of the lamps the characteristics of the projector might change slightly. The same applies when replacing lamps. 7.1.1 Updating RealColorTM calibration data For accurate results with the RealColorTM system, accurate measurement data is required. RealColorTM calibration data can be found under the menu entry PICTURE >REALCOLOR >REALCOLOR CALIBRATION > MEASURED VALUES X/Y and relative luminance values for red, green, blue, white and BrilliantColorTM 1 are entered in this menu. The BrilliantColorTM should all be set to 0.000 for the VizSim (RGB) color wheel. All values can also be updated using the communications protocol over RS-232 or LAN. Before setting these values, it is important to select the desired BrilliantColorTM setting. Go to menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > BRILLIANTCOLOR to select the desired BrilliantColorTM look. Measurements must be done on the built in test patterns. This is in particularly important for the BrilliantColorTM 1 test pattern since it is impossible to generate this pattern correctly using a computer source. In the user menu these patterns can be accessed through PICTURE > CALIBRATION > REALCOLOR CALIBRATION > COLOR CALIBRATION TESTIMAGE/ COLOR PROCESSED TEST IMAGE. Use the arrow keys to cycle through the images. Performing a factory reset of the projector will restore the measured values to the values measured in the factory. When measuring data, a high quality measurement instrument is highly recommended for accurate results. Spectrometers (like PhotoResearch PR-655) are preferred. 7.1.2 RealColorTM modes Before any color correction is applied to the image, RealColorTM must be enabled. Go to menu PICTURE > REALCOLOR > COLOR CORRECTION to enable RealColorTM. RealColorTM can operate in 3 modes: • Color temperature/white point correction only. • Red, Green, Blue, White correction. In this mode optimal color coordinates for Cyan, Magenta and Yellow will be computed automatically. • Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, White. In this mode color points and intensity for each color can be manipulated separately. To change the RealColorTM mode please go the menu PICTURE > REALCOLOR > DE- SIRED VALUES > DESIRED COORDS MODE. F50 User User Manual Manual - Introduction - Optimising the image 54 55 7.2 Setting a white point or color temperature After enabling RealColorTM set the color temperature in the menu PICTURE > REALCOLOR > TEMPERATURE. Values between 3200K and 9300K can be selected. These color temperatures are tracking the “black body curve”- the black curved line in the center of CIE Chart in Figure 7-1. The default is the D65 illuminant at 6500K. The white point can also be set to a custom value defined by an x, y coordinate not linked to the black body. Go to menu PICTURE > REALCOLOR > X-COOR- DINATE and PICTURE > REALCOLOR > Y-COORDINATE to change the white point. Figure 7-1. CIE chart 7.2.1 Defining the system color gamut All colors visible to the eye are defined by CIE Chart in Figure 7-1. The boundary of the colors the projector can display is called the system color gamut. The white triangle in the figure is an example of a system color gamut. By default the projector has the widest possible system gamut. The system color gamut cannot be expanded outside native color gamut. It may be desirable to change the system color gamut of the projector to: • Color-match multiple projectors. • Meet defined color standards, like REC 709. • Create a special “look” to the image. Before the system color gamut can be changed, the desired RealColorTM mode has to be defined. To change the RealColorTM mode please go the menu PICTURE > REALCOLOR > DESIRED VALUES > DESIRED COORDS MODE. RealColorTM has to be enabled for the desired system gamut to be applied. Go to menu PICTURE > REALCOLOR > COLOR CORRECTION to enable RealColorTM. After RealColorTM is enabled and the desired color correction mode is selected, please go the menu entry PICTURE > REALCOLOR > DESIRED VALUES to change the color points to your desired system color gamut. 7.3 Gamma The projector features a set of 6 built in gamma curves: Film 2.2, Film 2.4, Film 2.6, Film 2.8, Video 1, Video 2, Computer 1, Computer 2, Dynamic and DICOM 180. The different gamma curves are displayed below. The names of the curves are descriptive for their recommended use. Using any of the computer curves for video applications will results in significant image noise. Figure 7-1. Film 2.2 gamma Figure 7-2. Film 2.4 gamma Figure 7-3.

Change the lamp when lifetime expires. Always replace lamp with the same type and rating. USE ORIGINAL LAMPS ONLY. The lamp holder employs an electronic lamp timer that is tracking the life time of the lamp. Always disconnect the power cord and wait until the projector has cooled down (60 minutes) before opening the lamp cover. Be careful not to touch the protective glass when replacing the lamp, this may cause the protective glass to overheat and break while in use. Be extremely careful when removing the lamp module. In the unlikely event that the bulb ruptures, small glass fragments may be generated. The lamp module is designed to contain these fragments, but use caution when removing the lamp module. Remove the used lamp: 1. Unscrew the lamp door screw 2. Open the lamp door 3. Unscrew the three screws that hold the lamp in place 4. Pull the lamp out using the handle Replace with a new lamp in reverse order: 1. Insert a new lamp. Observe the guide pins and make sure the lamp is fully inserted 2. Fasten the three screws securely 3. Close the lamp door 4. Tighten the lamp door screw firmly In the unlikely event of a lamp rapture, a limited amount of mercury vapour may be emitted into the room. To avoid inhaling this mercury vapour (which is toxic, and can be harmful for lungs and nervous system) the room should be thoroughly ventilated for a period of at least 30 minutes. There are no known health hazards from exposure to lamps that are intact and which are used within an enclosed fixture. No adverse effects are expected from occasional exposure to broken lamps. As a matter of good practise, avoid prolonged or frequent exposure to lamps unless there is adequate ventilation. The major hazard from broken lamps is the possibility of sustaining glass cuts. 64 User Manual - Introduction F50 User Manual - Lamp change PRODUCTION ADDRESS Habornveien 53 1653 Gamle Fredrikstad Norway Model certification name: GP9 © 2014 Barco nv.
