* Separately available 3D glasses (YA-G30) are required in order to view a projected 3D image in 3D. Also, separately available special software (CASIO 3D Converter) is required to project a 3D image with the projector when a computer (analog RGB) is the input source.
Multi Projection Camera (YC-400, YC-430) Connection: A CASIO Multi Projection Camera can be connected directly to the projector’s USB port for fine resolution projection of documents and other images. Document camera capabilities allow projection of data without going through a computer.
Operations in this manual are presented based on the remote controller that comes with the projector. Major operation keys are also provided on the projector unit, so the most of the same procedures can also be performed directly on the projector.

Separately available 3D glasses (YA-G30) are required in order to view a projected 3D image in Separately available special software (CASIO 3D Converter) is required to project a 3D image with the projector when a computer (analog RGB) is the input source.
COMPUTER IN terminal is treated as an RGB signal resulting in abnormal image projection. Except when using the projector for 3D image projection, you should normally leave it in the normal input mode. Returning to the Normal Input Mode from the 3D Input Mode Press the [INPUT] key to display the input source selection screen.
Image Operations During Projection You can perform the following operations while projecting an image. Image brightness adjustment Color mode selection Image zooming Momentary cut off of the input source image and projection of a black or blue screen, or a logo Image freeze Pointer display in the projected image Aspect ratio switching...
The color mode cannot be selected in the following cases. When “Off” is selected for the Eco Mode setting (page 18) When the projector is in the 3D input mode. See “3D Input Mode” (page 10). To change the color mode Press the [COLOR MODE] key.
This will capture the image that is on the screen at the moment you press [FREEZE] and stores it in projector memory. That image remains projected on the screen. To restore projection of the image from an input source, press the [ESC] key.
Displaying a Pointer in the Projected Image You can select from among different pointer styles, including various arrow styles, for display in the projected image. Pointers can be used during a presentation to indicate or highlight a specific part of the image.
Press the [ASPECT] key to cycle through the aspect ratio settings for the projected image. Available settings depend on your projector model as shown below. For details about the meaning of each setting, see the “Aspect Ratio” setting under “Screen Settings Main Menu” on page 31.
Adjusting the Volume Level You can use the remote controller keys to adjust the volume level of the audio that is output from the projector’s speaker. To adjust the volume level Press the [VOLUME] key. This causes the [Volume] screen to appear on the projected image.
To hide the window, press the [ESC] key. Important! The Eco Mode setting automatically changes to “Off” whenever the projector is in the 3D input mode. See “3D Input Mode” (page 10). The “On (Auto)” setting cannot be selected for the Eco Mode while “On” is selected for “Screen Settings...
Note While “Off” is selected for the Eco Mode setting, you also can specify whether brightness or color should be given emphasis. For details, see “Eco Off Mode” under “Image Adjustment 1 Main Menu” (page 29). (for USB port model users) Use the setup menu (page 20) to select the Eco Mode when the input source is an external device connected to the USB port.
Configuring Advanced Projector Settings Your projector has a setup menu that you can use to configure advanced settings. Basic Setup Menu Operations Displaying the Setup Menu Pressing the [MENU] key displays the menu shown below in the center of the projection screen.
The setup menu items that you can change depend on whether or not an image signal is being input to the projector, and on the currently selected input source. Perform the procedure below after starting projection of an image from an input source in the normal input mode. See “3D Input Mode”...
Direct Power On You can configure the projector so it powers up automatically as soon as you plug it into a power source. With this “Direct Power On” feature, you do not even need to press the [P] (Power) key. To enable Direct Power On, display the setup menu, and then change the “Direct Power On”...
