Cautions when watching 3D video


Read cautions carefully when watching 3D video.

How to fix


Extra special care is required for children watching a 3D video.

When Watching 3D Video

• Prevent children of 5 years or younger from watching a 3D video. It may impair the development of their eyes.

• Children 10 years old or younger are still developing their eyesight and may have an excessive tendency to   

touch or jump at the screen. Adult guidance and supervision is recommended.

• Since the distance between the eyes is narrower for children than in adults, children tend to notice a greater

difference in the images seen by each eye. Therefore, even while watching the same 3D video, children may    

have a greater depth perception than adults.

• Young people of 19 years old or younger may respond with sensitivity to the light stimuli of 3D content.

Excessive viewing when fatigued is not recommended.

• Elderly viewers may have a reduced depth perception than younger viewers. Avoid watching video nearer than

the recommended distance.

• Watch 3D images within the optimum viewing angle and distance. • If you are outside the viewing angle or

distance, you may not be able to see 3D images. You cannot view 3D images when you are lying down.

• You may see left and right images overlapped during projector initialization after it is powered on. It may take

some time for optimization.

• It may take some time for the 3D image to look normal after you turn your eyes away from the screen and

look back at the 3D image.

• It may flicker slightly while watching 3D images under a 3 wavelength lamp fluorescent light (50 Hz to 60 Hz)

or near windows. If so, it is recommended to block the sun light with a curtain and to dim the lights.

• The 3D glasses must be DLP-LINK (DLP Ready) type. • You may not be able to watch 3D properly if there is an

obstacle between the projector and 3D glasses.

• Install the 3D projector as far as possible from other devices.

• If a future 3D broadcasting format that is not supported by this projector becomes the standard, an additional 

device such as a set-top box may be required.
