Using the 3D Function

This portable cinema features a 3D function which enables you to enjoy 3D movies, videos, and sporting events in a more realistic way by presenting the depth of the images. You need to wear a pair of 3D glasses to view 3D images. If the 3D signal is input from an HDMI 1.4a compatible device, the portable cinema detects the signal for 3D Sync information and once detected, it projects images in 3D format automatically.

To activate 3D functions:

  1. When playing videos, press OK and the video control bar will pop up.
  2. Select the 3D settings icon, the 3D Settings menu is displayed in the right bottom corner.
  3. Highlight 3D self detect and change to Auto.
NOTE:
When the 3D Sync function is on:
  • The brightness level of the projected image will decrease.
  • The Color Mode cannot be adjusted.
  • If you discover the inversion of the 3D image depth, set the 3D Sync Invert function to ON to correct the problem.
