Image Setting Menu

Menu Option Description
Color Mode The projector is preset with several predefined picture modes so that you can choose one to suit your operating environment and input signal.

Maximizes the brightness of the projected image. This mode is suitable for environments where extra-high brightness is required, i.e. well-lit rooms.

Optimized for viewing sports in well-lit environments.

Appropriate for colorful movies, video clips from digital cameras, or DVs through the PC input. Best for low-light environments.

Recalls the customized user settings.

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.

Sharpness A high value results in a sharper picture; a low value softens the picture.
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.
Tint The higher the value, the more greenish the picture becomes. The lower the value, the more reddish the picture becomes.
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.
Aspect Ratio The Aspect Ratio is the ratio of the image width to the image height. With the advent of digital signal processing, digital display devices, like this projector, can dynamically stretch and scale the image output to a different aspect than that of the image input signal.

Scales an image proportionally to fit the projector’s native resolution in its horizontal width. This is suitable for the incoming image which is neither 4:3 nor 16:9 and you want to make the most use of the screen without altering the image’s aspect ratio.

Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for 4:3 images like computer monitors, standard definition TV, and 4:3 aspect DVD movies, as it displays them without aspect alteration.

Scales an image so that it is displayed in the center of the screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is most suitable for images which are already in a 16:9 aspect, like high definition TV.
