    Integrator Mode 3) Adjusting the SCREEN Parameters SCREEN parameters include H.POSI., V.POSI., CLK FRQ, and CLK PHS. 1 Before entering the Integrator mode, switch the unit to the specific input (one of INPUTs 2-4) in which you intend to make adjustments.

    4) Setting the Colour Mode In addition to normal color mode (COLOUR MODE 1), this unit also provides a COLOUR MODE 2, with PICTURE and WHITE BALANCE parameters preset for maximum performance in picture reshooting in TV studios. Use the mode appropriate for the situation.
  • Page 92: Setting The Baud Rate

    Integrator Mode 5) Setting the Baud Rate When controlling or adjusting the unit from a PC, the RS-232C port can be set to one of five baud rates: 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600 and 19200 bps. The factory-preset value is 4800 bps. 1 Enter Integrator mode (refer to “5.4.1 About Integrator Mode”).
  • Page 93: Mirror Mode

    6) Mirror Mode This mode enables you to reproduce incoming images upside down and the left side of the original appearing on the right and the right side on the left. (Activated, this mode is, like the colour mode, effective on whichever input function (INPUTs 1-4) is selected.) This mode is intended for smart cable arrangement, making it possible to draw bundled cables upwards (towards the ceiling) when this display is mounted upside down using the ceiling hanging hardware PDK-5002.
  • Page 94: Setting Std-rgb

    Integrator Mode 7) Setting STD-RGB The STD-RGB needs to be set to ON when letting the display show standard rate (15.6 kHz x 50 Hz or 15.7 kHz x 60 Hz) RGB signals coming from external RGB processors or similar units. (With STD-RGB set to OFF, no standard rate RGB signals show up on the display screen.) The primary image quality is not, however, ensured when the STD-RGB is set to ON because this setting simplifies the video signal processing.
  • Page 95: Adjusting The Side Mask

    8) Adjusting the Side Mask The side mask adjusts the brightness of no-image areas appearing on the fringe of the screen when the screen size is set to 4:3 NORMAL or to ORIGINAL, for example. The brightness of each colour of RGB can be adjusted separately. (Adjusting the side mask momentarily causes the screen size to be switched over.) In adjusting the side mask, think of how video signals develop with time and also of a balance in the brightness between the adjacent display sets.

    Integrator Mode 9) Initializing Adjustments (TOTAL INITIALIZE) You can restore adjustments made in the Integrator mode to their factory-preset values. PICTURE, WHITE BALANCE, and SCREEN parameters (refer to “5.4.3”, paragraphs 1), 2), and 3)) can be restored simultaneously to their initial settings.

    5.6 Combination Connection This connection method is useful for operating and adjusting multiple units from a single PC. By assigning IDs (refer to “5.6.2”) to each unit, you can control them either simultaneously or individually. Example: Controlling and “staging” multiple installed units 5.6.1 Connections As shown below, connecting multiple units allows you to control all of them from a single PC.

Commands: IDC (ID CLEAR) clearing an assigned ID IDS (ID SET) assigning an ID IDS is valid only when no ID has been assigned yet. The lowest ID is assigned to the unit directly connected to the PC, the next higher ID number to the second unit, and so on.

    About the Pseudo-Contour 6.1 About the Pseudo-Contour When images representing a series of different brightness or color tones (such as human skin tones) move at a certain speed, they are sometimes accompanied by striped shadows. This pattern is known as pseudo-contour. This phenomenon is an optical illusion deriving from the plasma display’s characteristic tone wedge, and is not found with still images.

    1) Unplug the Power Cord from the Outlet. 2) Cabinet and Remote Never use solvents such as benzene or thinner, which can damage or destroy the coating of the cabinet or the remote. Remove dirt by lightly wiping with a soft cloth. If necessary, slightly moisten the cloth with neutral detergent diluted with water.
