    4. Projector registration 4.2. Registration of projector to “ProjectorView Global+” The procedures to register projectors vary among the foregoing connection examples. • In connection examples 1 to 4 (where projectors are installed within the same local network), the projectors within such network are automatically detected and registered. For details, see procedure A below. • In connection examples 5 and 6 (where projectors are installed via a router), specify the range of the projectors’ IP addresses and then carry out automatic projector search within the range to register projectors. For details, see procedure B below.
  • Page 12 4. Projector registration Procedure B - Connection examples 5 and 6 (where projectors are installed via a router) To automatically detect projectors connected via a router, specify a range of IP addresses to search that particular IP address using “Search Projector Setting”.

  • Page 13: When Changing The Projector Ip Settings

    4. Projector registration <Note> • If you want to connect a projector via a router after automatically detecting it, you need to specify a search range of IP addresses that includes the projector’s IP address in advance. • Note that a different IP address may be assigned every time you start the projectors. If a connection cannot be established, specify the projector search range and execute “Search Projector” again. • If you change the IP address in the projector menu after the projectors have been detected, execute “Search Projector” again. • If several projectors with the same IP address are registered, delete the ones which are not connected to the network from “Edit Projector Setting”. 4.3.

  • Page 17: Schedule Setting

    6. Schedule setting 6.1. Creation of projector group Multiple projectors can be controlled and batched by sorting groups. Also, each group can set each time of the power supply ON/OFF every day. Since the schedule of the power supply ON/OFF is performed by each group, the projector which you like to operate at the same schedule should be integrated into the same group. When Power ON and Power OFF are enabled, their time settings are indicated on the schedule list. [Example] When setting the schedule for the group “group 1” to turn the power supply ON at 8:00 on Monday, turning OFF at 18:00 on the same day, ON at 8:40 on Thursday, and OFF at 17:00 on Friday.
  • Page 18: When Changing Schedule Setting

    6. Schedule setting <Note> • The power supply ON and the power supply OFF can not be selected at the same time of the same day of the week. • The Schedule Setting will be executed while “ProjectorView Global+” is in operation. • Depending on usage conditions, such as when there are so many projectors that you need to control, the time to be executed by the power supply control may deviate from the setting time of the schedule. • When utilizing the Network Time Protocol (NTP) function on the Internet, the schedule operation may not be executed because the setting time of the schedule jumps over. • When the automatic time adjustment by summer time is valid, the schedule operation may not be executed because the time is automatically adjusted before and after switching over. 6.2. When changing schedule setting (1) Select a group which you like to change from the Group select pull-down menu on the main screen.
