Do not place anything on the projector that prevents heat dissipation. • Do not place the projector on an uneven or unstable surface. The projector may fall over, causing personal injury or projector malfunction. • Do not use if the projector is tilted at an angle of more than 10° degrees left or right, nor at an angle of more than 15° degrees forwards or backwards. • Do not look straight at the projector lens during operation. The intense light beam may damage your eyes. • Do not block the projection lens with any objects when the projector is under operation as this could cause objects to become heated and deformed or even cause a fire. • Do not attempt to disassemble the projector. There are dangerous high voltages inside which may cause death if you should come into contact with live parts. • When moving the projector, be careful not to drop or bump the projector on anything. • Do not place any heavy objects on the projector or connection cables. • Do not stand the projector on end vertically. Doing so may cause the projector to fall over, causing personal injury or projector malfunction. • Avoid exposing the projector to direct sunlight or other sources of sustained heat. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other devices (including amplifiers) that may increase the temperature of the projector to dangerous levels. • Do not place liquids near or on the projector. Liquids spilled into the projector may cause it to fail. If the projector does become wet, disconnect it from the power supply and call your local service center to have the projector serviced. • When the projector is under operation, you may sense some heated air and odor from its ventilation grill. It is a normal operation and not a defect. 3 • Do not attempt to circumvent the safety provisions of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide and third blade are provided for your safety. If the plug does not fit into your outlet, obtain an adapter and do not attempt to force the plug into the outlet. • When connecting to a power outlet, DO NOT remove the grounding prong. Please ensure grounding prongs are NEVER REMOVED. • Protect the power cord from being treaded upon or pinched, particularly at the plug, and at the point where it emerges from the projector. • In some countries, the voltage is NOT stable. This projector is designed to operate safely within a voltage between 100 to 240 volts AC, but could fail if power cuts or surges of ±10 volts occur. In areas where voltage may fluctuate or cut out, it is recommended that you connect your projector through a power stabilizer, surge protector, or uninterruptable power supply (UPS). • If smoke, an abnormal noise, or a strange odor is present, immediately switch the projector off and call your dealer or ViewSonic®. It is dangerous to continue using the projector. • Use only attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer. • Disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet if the projector is not being used for a long period of time. • Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. CAUTION: Possibly hazardous optical radiation is emitted from this product. As with any bright light source, do not stare into the beam, RG2 IEC 62471- 5:2015 4 Contents Safety Precautions....................................................... 3 Introduction ................................................................ 8 Features..................................................................................................................8 Package Contents...................................................................................................9 Product Overview.................................................................................................10 Projector................................................................................................................ 10 Connection Ports................................................................................................... 11 Remote Control..................................................................................................... 12 Remote Control -

Brightest Maximizes the brightness of the projected image. This mode is suitable for environments where extra-high brightness is required, i.e. well-lit rooms. TV Optimized for viewing sports in well-lit environments. Gaming Designed for playing video games. Movie Appropriate for colorful movies, video clips from digital cameras, or DVs through the PC input. Best for low-light environments. User 1/User 2 Recalls the customized user settings. NOTE: Only supports HDMI/USB-C signal input. Brightness The higher the value, the brighter the image. Lower values will result in a darker image. Contrast Use this to set the peak white level after you have previously adjusted the Brightness setting to suit your selected input and viewing environment. 43 Menu Option Description Color Temp Select the color temperature setting. • 6500K: Maintains normal white coloring. • 7500K: A higher, cooler color temperature than 6500K. • 9300K: The highest color temperature; makes the image appear the most bluish-white. • User Color: Adjust red, green, and blue values as desired. Tint The higher the value, the more greenish the picture becomes. The lower the value, the more reddish the picture becomes. Saturation Refers to the amount of that color in a video picture. Lower settings produce less saturated colors; in fact, a setting of “0” removes that color from the image entirely. If the saturation is too high, that color will be overpowering and unrealistic. Sharpness A high value results in a sharper picture; a low value softens the picture. Gamma Reflects the relationship between input source and picture brightness. 44 Menu Option Description

Color Management Reset Current Only in permanent installations with controlled lighting levels such as: boardrooms, lecture halls, or home theaters should Color Management be considered. Red Yellow Green White Magenta Cyan Blue Color Management provides fine color control adjustment to allow for more accurate color reproduction, should you require it. If you have purchased a test disc, which contains various color test patterns and can be used to test the color presentation on monitors, TVs, projectors, etc., you can project any image from the disc on the screen and enter the Color Management menu to make adjustments.
