    FEATURES ¶ “Color mode selection function” for convenient camera reshooting The MPJ is equipped with a “color mode selection function” allowing the selection of two white balance data settings. When used for example in a broadcast station’s studio for reshooting, the colors will be unnatural if a camera suited to the brightness in the studio is used, but if one color temperature is set to 4500°K, natural colors can be reproduced at the touch of a button.

    CHAPTER 3. INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY 1. INSTALLATION CONDITIONS (1) Weight-tolerant The ground must be flat and horizontal. It should be able to bear the weight of the system. For wooden floors, if the part receiving the weight of the system lies at the center between the reinforcement beams below the floor, the floor may become deformed or may curve inwards.

    INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY (6) Installation work to prevent toppling ¶ Make sure that you carry out the following work after installing the system in order to prevent toppling etc. 1 Lower all of the floor levelers until the system comes into contact with the floor. 2 Anchor the system to the floor.
  • Page 36: Heat Value Calculation

    INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY (7) Heat value calculation ¶ In the calculation, assume that the maximum power consumption per multi-projection unit is 300 W by re- serving a certain headroom. As most of the consumed power becomes heat, the power consumption can be regarded to be proportional with the calorific value.

    INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY (11) Lighting ¶ Projection screens do not reflect external light like the CRT, but the screens and their base materials may still cause reflection if strong light of a spotlight, etc. is directly incident to them. In such a case, prevent the illumination lighting from hitting the screen surfaces directly.
  • Page 41: Power Supply

    INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY (14) Power supply 1 Power supply voltage The guaranteed voltage of this system is ±10% of the rated voltage. But if the impedance of the power wires is high, the voltage waveform will become distorted and show the same symptoms as when voltage drops abnormally.
  • Page 42: Cables Used

    ¶ Install the stands so that the system is maintained level. Be sure to calculate the floor strength and take sufficient measures to prevent the system from tumbling down. When not using a Pioneer-recommended stand, Pioneer will accept no responsibility for accidents or damage due to improper installation or mounting or to natural disasters.

    ADJUSTMENTS (5) White balance adjustment 1 Before adjusting white balance Adjusting the white balance means to adjust the color tone. This adjustment is necessary for the screen to become white when the white signal is input, and black when the black signal is input. In the actual adjustment, the bias and gain of the CRTs for the three colors (R, G, and B) are adjusted so that the screen becomes the same color tone.

(2) HI LIGHT adjustment Signal:White 50% Adjust R HI, G HI, and B HI so that the CRT becomes white. First, adjust so that the brightness of R, G, and B becomes the same, and while maintaining that brightness, balance R, G, and B, and adjust so that the CRT becomes white.
  • Page 124 ADJUSTMENTS 7 ABL GAIN adjustment (White 100%) The ABL GAIN adjustment adjusts the white 100% luminance of a unit to other units after low luminance and medium luminance have been adjusted. Normally, when white 100% is input, ABL is imposed and the current is controlled so that the current flowing in the CRT does not exceed a certain level.
