1.0 INSTALLATION

1.0 INSTALLATION 1.1

The optional Passive 3D Kit The Blackwing (3D-compatible) projector is now available with a Passive 3D modulator for 3D enthusiasts and spectators how are 3D sensitive. Thanks to the use of the passive 3D technology and the lightweight, flicker-free glasses, the stereoscopic picture is 50% brighter than with the active sets but also smoother and more natural to the eyes. The Passive 3D Kit is installed in front of the projector. Avoid direct sun light and make sure to install it in a place with a good ventillation. Make sure to have a passive 3D compatible screen installed before proceeding to the Passive 3D Kit install. To make the installation easier, use this guide together with the original Cineversum Passive 3D Test Patterns package available on www.cineversum.com.

1.2

Download the Passive 3D Kit setup TEST PATTERNs This manual refers to TEST PATTERNs that can be downloaded directly from the official Passive 3D Kit web page, in the download section. These patterns are in PNG format and they may be used in addition to this document to make easier and faster the install. If you choose to use these TEST PATTERNs, you will need to display them at 1920x1080 pixels resolution on the projector. To do so, you probably can load them on a USB key directly inserted into your Blu-Ray player or simply by connecting a computer to the projector, using a DVI to HDMI cable. Visit Cineversum’s web site: http://www.cineversum.com to download the TEST PATTERNs.

1.3

Passive 3D screen that maintains light polarization In order to enjoy the best quality 3D images, you need a polarization preserving screen. Such a screen is generally called “silver screen” and it is specially designed for 3D projection. Cineversum has developed and optimized a special screen fabric for both 2D projection and passive 3D projection: the “Passive 5D screen”. It is a low gain and high extinction ratio fabric that you can order together with your Passive 3D Kit. If your screen is not manufactured and tested for passive 3D use, you might experience uncomfortable and blurry 3D images with a high level of crosstalk, which will greatly impact on the perception of the stereoscopic effects.

2.0 POSITION AND ALIGNMENT

2.0 POSITION AND ALIGNMENT 2.1

STEP 1: Adjust the Passive 3D modulator gross position Position the projector equipped with the Passive 3D Kit at the desired projection distance. Then adjust the correct zoom, offset and focus to fit the screen. These adjustment are made by using the Zoom, Focus and the vertical / horizontal Shift of the projector.

Adjust the picture Focus Once the picture is correctly centered and fills the screen, please use the TEST PATTERN 1b (full green pattern with 16:9 written on it) to adjust the modulator correctly in front of the projector lens. The correct position for the modulator is reached when the light path uses the maximum surface of the LCD window, without blocking light in the borders. To do so, place the Passive 3D Kit at the maximum distance possible and moves it toward the projector until the light path is centered and entirely contained into the LCD window.

The modulator is too far

Correct position

The modulator is too near

A A

Tighten the 2 screws A when the distance between the modulator and the projector lens is correct. If the projector uses a large zoom (<2.0 throw ratio distance), the modulator will be ďŹ xed nearer to the projector. If the projector uses a small zoom (>2.0 throw ratio distance), the modulator will be located farther from the projector. Then adjust the vertical position to center the light path into the Passive 3D Kit as described below.

STEP 2: Moiré artifacts and Focus Depending on the size of the screen, the screen fabric may -or may not- interact with the projector pixels and develop some color banding interferences. In order to remove them completely, you may alter slightly the projector focus. Use the TEST PATTERN 2b or a bright picture (White, Cyan by example) to set the correct projector Focus..

STEP 3: Vertical and Horizontal Tilt setting (important) Ideally, the Passive 3D Kit should be perfectly perpendicular to the light path, that means if you use the projector offset to center the picture into your screen, you will need to set an initial tilt on the Passive 3D modulator.

2.0 POSITION AND ALIGNMENT

Lens Flare Also, due to internal reflections from the Passive 3D modulator, you may see a noticeable lens flare on high contrast pictures, typically credits at the end of a movie, or using TEST PATTERNS 3a and 3b. Use TEST PATTERN 3a to check if there is a ghosting text at the top and bottom of the screen.

Additional tilt for Lens Flare

-7° Initial tilt angle

+7°

To completely remove Lens Flare, apply an additional Vertical and Horizontal tilt to the modulator. These additional tilts should not exceed 7°. It is recommended to always use a small amount of tilt to remove the potential reflections, called lens flares. Do not use more than 7° of tilt. Above this mark, there is too much tilt and a visible vertical ghosting will appear and may distract spectators.

Use TEST PATTERN 3b to perfectly identify the lens flare location. The lens flare may be identified as a very bright, disc-shaped reflection of a portion of the original picture as shown in the above picture. By changing the Passive 3D Kit tilt, the lens flare will move around the picture and be more noticeable. To completely remove the lens flare, tilt the Passive 3D Kit in order to change the lens flare position and to move it out of the screen. Preferably move it outside the screen through one of the four circles number 8, 13, 78 or 83. To do so, you will apply a vertical tilt and horizontal tilt. This step is required to obtain a ghost free and highly contrasted picture.

Set an additional Vertical and Horizontal Tilt to move the lens flare outside the screen toward one of the circles number 8 or 13 or 78 or 83 If the tilt required to pull out the lens flare through circle 8 is above 7°. Select a different circle: 78 by example. Make sure that the additional Vertical and Horizontal tilts never exceed 7°.

STEP 4: Check the 3D performances To check the 3D performances of the Passive 3D Kit, you can use TEST PATTERN 4b or directly by viewing a 3D program. To use the TEST PATTERN 4b, please follow the steps below: •

Browse, select and display the TEST PATTERN 4b

Go into the projector menu and select the Side-by-Side 3D mode

Put the passive 3D glasses on

EMPTY AREAS WHEN CLOSING RIGHT EYE

When closing the right eye, the R-squares should be barely visible. Note that the projector needs to warm up at least 20 min. to obtain a cross-talk free image.

2.5

STEP 5: Ghosting Black-over-White levels (optional) The TEST PATTERNS 5a and 5b will reveal the ghosting overlapping black-over-white level. This setting has a minor performance hit on global 3D performances. Additionally, if the lens flare has been correctly pushed out of the screen, there should be only a residual clear coloration into the black pattern. You can adjust into the projector menu the black level and white level to reduce the overlapping coloration. Make sure when doing this setting that the central steps remain in grey shades.

The overlapping black-over-white may be lightly colored but the central bar must remain in grey shades to obtain the best 3D performances. Once STEP 5 is completed, you can set in the projector menu the 3D mode back to “Auto”.

Issues and LED troubleshooting ISSUE LED is not light up Red is continuously light

Green LED flashes correctly but no 3D images are visible.

SOLUTION Ensure that the VESA > JACK cable is correctly inserted and that the projector is not in standby mode. The Passive 3D Kit is powered but cannot detect a 3D signal. Please check that the projector is correctly set to 3D Mode (Frame Packing, Side by Side or Top and Bottom in the info menu). Ensure that the Passive 3D Kit is mounted in the correct direction: the Cineversum logo on the modulator must be visible. Make sure that you wear the passive 3D glasses and that your screen is 3D capable.

4.0 MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING Avoid direct sun light and water contact with the Passive 3D Kit. This device must be in a place with good ventillation. Clean the Passive 3D Kit lens periodically, or whenever you notice smudges or too much dust on the crystal surface. •

To remove dust or smudges, gently wipe the lens with a dry and soft lens cleaning cloth.

To remove stubborn smudges, moisten a lens cleaning cloth with lens cleaner and gently wipe the surface of the lens. Avoid touching the lens surface directly to prevent finger prints or to damage the lens surface.

Avoid absolutely any water or humidity to accumulate into this device, otherwise the lifetime will be greatly reduced. Make sure that this device is completely dry before lightning up the projector.
