Connecting to a Video Source
You can use this connection procedure to connect a video 
tape deck, a camcorder, a laser disc player or any other 
compatible video image source to the projector. The 
projector can receive composite video or S-Video signals. If 
your video source has a one-pin RCA video jack you have 
composite video. If your video source has a four-pin video 
jack you have S-Video. If your video source has a three-pin 
video jack, you have G Sync-Video.
Note: 
The projector is not compatible with a cable TV-style F 
connector.
You can connect to both an S-Video and a composite video 
source at the same time. However, the projector 
automatically selects the S-Video source. To display 
composite video you must disconnect the S-Video source.
The projector supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM video 
formats. By default, it automatically detects and identifies the 
video format. However, you can set it to detect a single 
broadcast format. (See “Video menu” in Chapter 3.) Note 
that the projector will then be able to detect only one type of 
video signal.
The type of cable you need to connect the video source to the 
projector depends on whether you have composite video, S- 
Video or G Sync-Video. For composite video, use the video/ 
audio cable supplied with the projector. For S-Video, use the 
S-Video cable and audio cable supplied with your video 
device or obtain one from your computer dealer. For G Sync-
Video, use the BNC type cable came with your video source.
