1.2 Important safety instructions
To prevent the risk of electrical shock
Warning: This apparatus must be grounded (earthed) via the supplied 3 conductor AC power cable. If none of the supplied
power cables are the correct one, consult your dealer.
If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
purpose of the grounding-type plug.
The wires of the power cord are colored in accordance with the following code:
International plug:
Green/Yellow: ground.
Blue: neutral.
Brown: line (live)
North American plug:
Green/Yellow or Green: ground.
Blue or White: neutral.
Brown or Black: line (live)
Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not locate this product where persons will walk on the cord. To disconnect
the cord, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
If an extension cord is used with this product, make sure that the total of the ampere ratings on the products plugged into the
extension cord does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating.
Use only the power cord supplied with your projector. While appearing to be similar, other power cords have not been safety
tested at the factory and may not be used to power the projector. For a replacement power cord, contact your dealer.
Never push objects of any kind into this product through cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out
parts that could result in a risk of re or electrical shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the product. Should any liquid or solid object fall into the cabinet, unplug the set and have it
checked by qualied service personnel before resuming operations.
Lightning - For added protection for this video product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet. This will prevent damage to the projector due to lightning and AC power-line
surges.
To prevent personal injury
Caution: High pressure lamp may explode if improperly handled. Refer servicing to qualied service personnel. The customer
should never attempt to disassemble the lamp casing or to dispose of the lamp casing other than by returning it to Barco.
To prevent injury and physical damage, always read this manual and all labels on the system before inserting the lamp casing,
connecting to the wall outlet or adjusting the projector.
To prevent injury, take note of the weight of the projector. Minimum 2 persons are needed to carry the projector.
To prevent injury, ensure that the lens and all cover plates are correctly installed. See installation procedures.
Warning: high intensity light beam. NEVER look into the lens ! High luminance could result in damage to the eye.
Before attempting to remove any of the projector’s covers, you must turn off the projector and disconnect from the wall outlet.
When performing setup work to a ceiling mounted projector, to prevent injury caused by falling objects or the system, set out
a keep out area.
Consult a professional structural engineer prior to suspending the projector from a structure not intended for that use. Always
ensure that the working load limit of the structure can handle the load of the projector.
Never stack more than two (2) CLM projectors in a hanging conguration (truss) and never stack more than three (3) CLM
projectors in a base stand conguration (table mount).
The power input at the projector side is considered as the disconnect device. When required to switch off the projector, to
access parts inside, always disconnect the power cord at the projector side. In case the power input at the projector side is not
accessible (e.g. ceiling mount), the socket outlet supplying the projector shall be installed nearby the projector and be easily
accessible, or a readily accessible general disconnect device shall be incorporated in the xed wiring.
Do not place this equipment on an unstable cart, stand, or table. The product may fall, causing serious damage to it and
possible injury to the user.
When mounting the projector to the ceiling or to a rigging system, always mount security chains.
Warning: Protection from ultraviolet radiation: Do not look directly in the light beam. The lamp contained in this product is
an intense source of light and heat. One component of the light emitted from this lamp is ultraviolet light. Potential eye and skin
hazards are present when the lamp is energized due to ultraviolet radiation. Avoid unnecessary exposure. Protect yourself and
your employees by making them aware of the hazards and how to protect themselves. Protecting the skin can be accomplished
by wearing tightly woven garments and gloves. Protecting the eyes from UV can be accomplished by wearing safety glasses
that are designed to provide UV protection. In addition to the UV, the visible light from the lamp is intense and should also be
considered when choosing protective eye wear.
Exposure to UV radiation: Some medications are known to make individuals extra sensitive to UV radiation. The American
Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) recommends occupational UV exposure for an-8hour day to be
less than 0.1 microwatts per square centimeters of effective UV radiation. An evaluation of the workplace is advised to assure
employees are not exposed to cumulative radiation levels exceeding these government guidelines.

1. Safety
Mercury Vapor Warnings: Keep the following warnings in mind when using the projector. The lamp used in the projector
contains mercury. In case of a lamp rupture, explosion there will be a mercury vapor emission. In order to minimize the potential
risk of inhaling mercury vapors:
- Ensure the projector is installed only in ventilated rooms.
- Replace the lamp module before the end of its operational life.
- Promptly ventilate the room after a lamp rupture, explosion has occurred, evacuate the room (particularly in case of a preg-
nant woman).
- Seek medical attention if unusual health conditions occur after a lamp rupture, explosion, such as headache, fatigue, short-
ness of breath, chest-tightening coughing or nausea.
Cooling liquid circuit. The projector contains a cooling circuit lled with Blue antifreeze diluted 1,2 ethanediol (1/3 ethanediol
– 2/3 Demi water).
When the cooling circuit leaks, switch off the projector and contact a service technician.
The liquid is not for household use. Keep out of reach of children. Harmful by oral intake. Avoid exposure to pregnant women.
Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid inhale of the noxious fumes.
Never use the projector with its backside downwards. Forbidden area is +70° and -70° compared with the vertical axis.
To prevent projector damage
If the Air Filters are not regularly replaced, the air ow inside the projector could be disrupted, causing overheating. Overheating
may lead to the projector shutting down during operation.
In order to ensure that correct airow is maintained, and that the projector complies with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
requirements, and for safety requirements, it should always be operated with all of it’s covers in place.
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from
overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the product
on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. The
projector should not be placed in a built-in installation or enclosure unless proper ventilation is provided.
Do not block the projector cooling fans or free air movement under and around the projector. Loose papers or other objects
may not be nearer to the projector than 40 cm (16") on any side.
The projector must always be mounted in a manner which ensures free ow of air into its air inlets and unimpeded evacuation
of the hot air exhausted from its cooling system. Heat sensitive materials should not be placed in the path of the exhausted air.
Leave at least a free safety area of 1 meter (40”) at the rear of the projector.
Ensure that nothing can be spilled on, or dropped inside the projector. If this does happen, switch off and unplug the mains
supply immediately. Do not operate the projector again until it has been checked by qualied service technicians.
Consult a professional structural engineer prior to suspending the ceiling mount from a structure not intended for that use.
Always ensure the working load limit of the structure supporting the projector.
Do not use this equipment near water.
Special care should be used when DLP projectors are used in the same room as high power laser equipment. Direct or indirect
hitting of a laser beam on to the lens can severely damage the Digital Mirror DevicesTM in which case there is a loss of warranty.
Save the original shipping carton and packing material; they will come in handy if you ever have to ship your equipment. For
maximum protection, repack your set as it was originally packed at the factory.
Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for
cleaning. Never use strong solvents, such as thinner or benzine, or abrasive cleaners, since these will damage the cabinet.
Stubborn stains may be removed with a cloth lightly dampened with mild detergent solution.
To ensure the highest optical performance and resolution, the projection lenses are specially treated with an anti-reective
coating, therefore, avoid touching the lens. To remove dust on the lens, use a soft dry cloth. Do not use a damp cloth, detergent
solution, or thinner.
Never use the projector with its backside downwards. Forbidden area is +70° and -70° compared with the vertical axis.
Never use the projector when not all four lamps are installed.
To prevent battery explosion
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly installed.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer.
Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s instruction.
To prevent re hazard
Warning “Risk of re”. Do not place ammable or combustible materials near the projector !
This projector radiates heat on its external surfaces and from ventilation ducts during normal operation, which is both normal
and safe. Exposing ammable or combustible materials into close proximity of this projector could result in the spontaneous
ignition of that material, resulting in a re. For this reason, it is absolutely necessary to leave an “exclusion zone” around all
external surfaces of the projector whereby no ammable or combustible materials are present. The exclusion zone must be not
less than 40 cm (16”) for all Barco DLP projectors. The exclusion zone on the lens side must be at least 2 meter (80”).
Do not cover the projector or the lens with any material while the projector is in operation.
To reduce the lamp heat of the projector, switch the projector rst to standby and let the projector lamp cool down for at least 5
minutes. Then the projector may be switched off with the power switch.
Mount the projector in a well ventilated area away from sources of ignition and out of direct sun light.
Never expose the projector to rain or moisture.

About this chapter
Read this chapter before installing your CLM HD8. It contains important information concerning installation requirements for the
CLM HD8, such as minimum and maximum allowed ambient temperature, humidity conditions, required safety area around the
installed projector, required power net, compatible signal sources, etc.
Furthermore, careful consideration of things such as image size, ambient light level, projector placement and type of screen to use
are critical to the optimum use of the projection system.

2.1 Installation requirements
Ambient temperature conditions
The maximum allowed ambient temperature for an operating Barco CLM HD8 may not exceed +40 ºC (+104 ºF).
The minimum allowed ambient temperature for an operating Barco CLM HD8 may not drop below +10 ºC (+50 ºF).
The projector will not operate if the ambient air temperature falls outside this range (+10 ºC +40 ºC or +50 ºF +104 ºF). Be
aware that room heat rises to the ceiling. Check if the temperature near the installation site is not excessive.
The minimum storage temperature is -35 ºC (-31 ºF) and the maximum storage temperature is +65 ºC (+149 ºF).
Humidity conditions
Storage: 0 to 98% relative humidity, non-condensing.
Operation: 0 to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing.
High Altitude
For an optimal performance of the CLM at high altitude, make sure that sufcient air ow is available (maximum ambient temperature
30°C).
Projector weight
Do not underestimate the weight of one Barco CLM HD8, which is about ±31 kg (±68 lb.). Be sure that the table or truss installation
on which the projector(s) has to be installed is capable of handling ve (5) times the complete load of the complete system.
Power requirements
One Barco CLM HD8 (order number R9050130 and R90501301) requires 100-120/200-240V 12/8A 50/60Hz.
One Barco CLM HD8 (order number R90501305) requires 100-120/200-240V 16/8A 50/60Hz.
Clean air environment
A projector must always be mounted in a manner which ensures the free ow of clean air into the projectors ventilation inlets. For
installations in environments where the projector is subject to airborne contaminants such as that produced by smoke machines or
similar (these deposit a thin layer of greasy residue upon the projectors internal optics and imaging electronic surfaces, degrading
performance), then it is highly advisable and desirable to have this contamination removed prior to it reaching the projectors clean
air supply. Devices or structures to extract or shield contaminated air well away from the projector are a prerequisite, if this is not a
feasible solution then measures to relocate the projector to a clean air environment should be considered.
Only ever use the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning kit which has been specically designed for cleaning optical parts, never
use industrial strength cleaners on the projector’s optics as these will degrade optical coatings and damage sensitive optoelectronics
components. Failure to take suitable precautions to protect the projector from the effects of persistent and prolonged air contam-
inants will culminate in extensive and irreversible ingrained optical damage. At this stage cleaning of the internal optical units will
be noneffective and impracticable. Damage of this nature is under no circumstances covered under the manufacturer’s warranty
and may deem the warranty null and void. In such a case the client shall be held solely responsible for all costs incurred during any
repair. It is the clients responsibility to ensure at all times that the projector is protected from the harmful effects of hostile airborne
particles in the environment of the projector. The manufacturer reserves the right to refuse repair if a projector has been subject to
knowingly neglect, abandon or improper use.

2. General
Which screen type ?
There are two major categories of screens used for projection equipment. Those used for front projected images and those for rear
projection applications.
Screens are rated by how much light they reect (or transmit in the case of rear projection systems) given a determined amount
of light projected toward them. The ‘GAIN’ of a screen is the term used. Front and rear screens are both rated in terms of gain.
The gain of screens range from a white matte screen with a gain of 1 (x 1) to a brushed aluminized screen with a gain of 10 (x 10)
or more. The choice between higher and lower gain screens is largely a matter of personal preference and another consideration
called the viewing angle. In considering the type of screen to choose, determine where the viewers will be located and go for the
highest gain screen possible. A high gain screen will provide a brighter picture but reduce the viewing angle. For more information
about screens, contact your local screen supplier.
What image size? How big should the image be?
The projector is designed for projecting an image size : minimum 2.2 meter (7.2 ft.) to maximum 10 .8 meter (35.4 ft.) (depending
on the ambient light conditions), with an aspect ratio of 16 to 9 .
2.2 Unpacking the projector
What has to be done ?
At delivery the projector is packed in a cardboard box upon a wooden pallet and secured with banding and fastening clips. Futher-
more, to provide protection during transport, the projector is surrounded with foam. Once the projector has arrived at the installation
site, it has to be removed from the cardboard box and wooden pallet in a safe manner without damaging the projector.
Necessary tools
Side cutter
How to unpack the projector
1. Remove the banding around the carton box, by releasing the fastening clips.
2. Cut open the box but do not insert the cutter too deep, otherwise the projector could be damaged.
Image 2-1
3. Take out the cardboard box with the accessories such as manuals, remote control and power cord.
4. Take the projector out of the cardboard box and place it on a stable table.

Image 2-2
5. Remove the foam rubber.
Save the original shipping carton and packing material, they will be necessary if you ever have to ship your
projector. For maximum protection, repack your projector as it was originally packed at the factory.
A rubber foam inside a plastic bag is placed into the lens opening of the projector. It’s recommended to reuse
this foam and plastic back each time you transport the projector. This to prevent intrusion of dust and foreign
particles.
CAUTION:Always remove the lens before transporting the projector !
2.3 Box content

Initial inspection
Before shipment, the projector was inspected and found to be free of mechanical and electrical defects. As soon as the projector is
unpacked, inspect for any damage that may have occurred in transit. Save all packing material until the inspection is completed. If
damaged is found, le claim with carrier immediately. The Barco sales and service ofce should be notied as soon as possible.
The packaging of the CLM HD8 is provided with a shock-watch label. If this shock-watch label was triggered
(red colored at arrival) during transport, that indicates the package was possibly roughly handled by the trans-
port company. In this case, the instructions mentioned on the label, should be followed, which are: adding a
note on the transportation document and informing the transport company and the Barco sales and service
ofce as soon as possible.
Mechanical check
This check should conrm that there are no broken knobs or connectors, that the cabinet and panel surfaces are free of dents and
scratches, and that the operating panel are not scratched of cracked. The Barco sales and service ofce should be notied as soon
as possible.

On-Axis / Off-Axis projection
The position of the projector with reference to the screen may also be different depending on the installation. Basically the projector
can be positioned in On-Axis or Off-Axis conguration. On-Axis conguration means that the projector is positioned so as to have
the centre of the lens coinciding with the centre of the screen. Off-Axis projection is obtained by shifting the lens up, down, left or
right. Several parameters can be calculated determining the position in any installation.
Formula to calculate the distance CD for On-Axis projection: CD=SH/2+B-A
Shift range
The lens can be shifted with respect to the DMD (P) which result in a shifted image on the screen (Off-Axis). A 100% shift means that
the centre point of the projected image is shifted by half the screen size. In other words, the centre point of the projected image falls
together with the outline of the image in an On-Axis projection. Due to mechanical and optical limitations it’s recommended to keep
the shift values within the eld of view (F) as illustrated below. Within these shift ranges the projector and lens perform excellently.
Conguring the projector outside these shift ranges will result in a slight decline of image quality.

How to select the right lens for your application
1. Determine the required screen width (SW).
2. Determine the position of the projector in the projection room with regard to the screen and measure the projector-screen distance
(PD).
3. Use the lens formulas to nd the best corresponding PD with regard to the measured projector-screen distance for the required
screen width SW.
Tip: Divide PD by SW to determine the approximate throw ratio. Choose a Lens, which captures the calculated throw ratio.
Use the lens formula of the chosen Lens to recalculate exactly.

3.4 Suspension of the CLM projector with rigging clamps
Before the projector can be suspended, the optional carry handle must be mounted on the projector. For more
information about the optional carry handle, see "Mounting optional Carry handle", page 211.
CAUTION:Consult a professional structural engineer to ensure that the suspension system is suitable for
this task.
Rigging points and rigging clamps
The carry handle is provided with six slots. Four slots are longitudinally oriented (A) and two slots are transversely oriented (B). In
each slot, a rigging point can be inserted (this rigging point is mounted on the clamps) and the position in the slot can be adjusted
depending of the size of the truss installation. The rigging clamps turn in these rigging points and these clamps allow an easy and
fast physical setup of the projector in a hanging conguration.

4.2 Aligning stacked CLM projectors
How to align two stacked CLM projectors
1. Make sure that the internal hatch pattern projected by the reference projector is sharp and has a perfect rectangle outline. If this
is not the case, readjust the reference projector before aligning the other stacked projector(s) with the reference hatch pattern.
Note: The reference projector in a stacked conguration is the lowest projector in case of table mount and the uppermost
projector in case of ceiling mount.
2. Project with the stacked projector the same internal hatch pattern as the reference projector.
Tip: Use a white colored hatch pattern for the reference projector and e.g. green colored for the stacked projector. This
makes it easier to see the difference between both hatch patterns projected.
3. If necessary, adjust the rotation of the stacked projector with respect to the reference projector by turning in or out the height
adjustment ring of the interlocking adaptors at the front of the stacked projector. Adjust until the outline of the hatch pattern is
most symmetric with the reference hatch pattern.
Tip: You can increase leverage by using a screw driver in the holes of the adjustment ring

General
The input and communication unit is equipped with two input slots, which accept any type of input designed for the CLM projector.
The modularity of the input modules makes the CLM projector very exible regarding input source connectivity. Note that the slot
numbering is done from top to bottom. So, the uppermost slot is slot number “1”, the second is slot number “2”. All input modules
have two status LED’s. The green LED lights up if the input module is selected as the active input module. The yellow LED lights
up if the input module has detected valid input syncs.

Projector status
The projector “status” LED (A) lights up green while in operation. The same LED lights up red when the projector is switched to
standby.
Besides the projector status LED (A) the communication interface has also a “warning” LED (B) which blinks in case the projector
encounters an internal problem concerning fan speed, temperature, supply voltages, ... etc. These type of problems still allows
the projector to operate (the show can go on) but an action will be required within a short time period. More information about the
involved problem is given on the local LCD display of the projector.
A two character 7-segment display (M) shows, during normal operation, the selected input slot number. If an error has occurred
then an error code appears on this two digit display.
IR communication (RC5)
An IR receiver (L) is mounted on the communication interface. Note that there is also an IR receiver mounted at the front and at the
back of the projector. When using the remote control unit (wired or wireless), the “IR REC” (D) and the “IR OK” (C) LED’s will light
up indicating an IR signal was received and recognized.
Wired remote control
If desired the remote control unit can be wired and plugged in into the male XLR port (K) on the communication interface.

RS232/422 serial communication
The communication interface of the CLM HD8 supports RS232 and RS422 serial communication. You can use the RS232/RS422
input port (J) to connect a local PC to your CLM projector. This way you can congure and control your CLM projector from your
local PC.
Do not forget to set the projector’s baud rate to match that of the computer.
The communication interface has also an active RS232/RS422 loop through output port. Whenever the projector has no power, a
passive loop through is created from the RS232/RS422 input port to the RS232/RS422 output port. So, the following projector in
the daisy chain will still receive his RS232/RS422 commands.
Advantages of using RS232/RS422 serial communication:
easy adjustment of the projector via PC (or MAC).
allow storage of multiple projector congurations and set ups.
wide range of control possibilities.
address range from 0 to 255.
sending data to the projector (update).
copying data from the projector (backup).

RS232
An Electronic Industries Association (EIA) serial digital interface standard specifying the characteristics of the commu-
nication path between two devices using either D-SUB 9 pins or D-SUB 25 pins connectors. This standard is used for
relatively short-range communications and does not specify balanced control lines. RS-232 is a serial control standard
with a set number of conductors, data rate, word length and type of connector to be used. The standard species com-
ponent connection standards with regard to computer interface. It is also called RS-232-C, which is the third version
of the RS-232 standard, and is functionally identical to the CCITT V.24 standard. Logical ’0’ is > + 3V, Logical ’1’ is < -
3V. The range between -3V and +3V is the transition zone.
RS422
An EIA serial digital interface standard that species the electrical characteristics of balanced (differential) voltage,
digital interface circuits. This standard is usable over longer distances than RS-232. This signal governs the asyn-
chronous transmission of computer data at speeds of up to 920,000 bits per second. It is also used as the serial port
standard for Macintosh computers. When the difference between the 2 lines is < - 0.2V that equals with a logical ’0’.
When the difference is > +0.2V that equals to a logical ’1’..
Ethernet network communication
The CLM projector can be connected to a LAN (local area network) using the Ethernet port (E) on the communication interface. Once
connected to the LAN, users are capable of accessing the projector from any location, inside or outside (if allowed) their company
network using the CLM control software: Projector Toolset. This toolset locates the projector on the network in case there is a DHCP
server or the user can insert the correct IP-address of the projector to access the projector. Once accessed, it is possible to check
and manipulate all the projector settings. Remote diagnostics, control and monitoring of the projector can then become a daily and
very simple operation. The network connectivity permits to detect potential errors and consequently improve the time to servicing.
Both Ethernet port (E) is equipped with a yellow and green a LED. The yellow LED lights up in case the port is connected with a
100Mbit network. The green LED blinks in case there is network activity.
The connector used for the Ethernet ports (E) are of rugged Neutrik EtherCon RJ45 type, which is compatible
with standard RJ45 cable connector. Straight (most common) as well as cross linked network cables can be
used.

USB port
The communication interface is equipped with a master USB port, type “A” connector (H). This USB port will simplify the service
procedures for software updates or for taking backup les from the projector without network connection. An USB-stick is plugged
into the USB port and les can be transferred from or to the projector using the local or remote control unit. Note that the USB-stick
has to be Linux FAT16 compatible.
DMX interface
The communication interface of the CLM HD8 supports DMX.
DMX is used as communication bus between different devices in the light technic. Each device has an input and an output, so that
the bus can be looped between the different devices. According the standard a ve wire cable with XLR connector is used but mostly
3-wire cables are used.
You can use the DMX input port (G) to connect a DMX device to the CLM projector. This way you can control the CLM projector
from that DMX device. The DMX output port (G) can be connected with the next device in the loop.

Genlock on locking done on indicated vertical frequency and clock frequency. This vertical frequency and clock frequency
must be exactly the same as those of the source.
Only use genlock ON for very stable sources and preferable for broadcast sources.
For Genlock on,
to change the locking frequency, use the or key to select Vert freq and press ENTER to activate. The rst digit is selected.
Use the or key to select the desired digit and press or key to select the next digit in the address or enter the value with
the digit keys on the remote control or local keypad. The next digit in the value will be automatically selected.
to change the clock frequency, use the or key to select Clock freq and press ENTER to activate. The rst digit is selected.
Use the or key to select the desired digit and press or key to select the next digit in the address or enter the value with
the digit keys on the remote control or local keypad. The next digit in the value will be automatically selected.
For older custom les, created with software packages older than package 1.5.6, the Genlock function will
be grayed out. If you want to use this genlock function, a new custom le must be created starting from the
standard le. Copying the custom le in a new le do not solve this issue.
8.4 Minimum delay
Purpose
In normal mode, the processing (scaling and de-interlacing) in DLP projectors introduces a few frames delay (from input to screen).
Setting the option Minimum Delay to "ON" disables all scaling and de-interlacing in the processing and reduces frame delay of the
projector (from input to screen) to ONE frame, caused by the formatter board (DLP technology restriction). The intended use of this
option is to apply native and progressive data to the projector and displaying it with minimum delay, using the full resolution of the
projector. Other formats will be displayed either unscaled and/or interlaced.
This feature can be used if additional delay in the projector is not acceptable. For instance if a projector is showing the DVI loop out
of another DLP or if an external scaler/de-interlacer does the processing.
How to toggle the delay?
1. Press MENU to activate the menus.
2. Use the or key to select Input and press ENTER.
The Input menu is displayed.
3. Use the or key to select Minimum delay and press ENTER to toggle between [On] and [Off].
