In Use

I found the 200 to be a simple projector to set up, and the menu structure is a snap, with plenty of options.

Here are some screen shots of the menu. The first one is the Picture Control, which includes contrast, brightness, and the other ususal suspects.

The second menu is Position, for adjusting the image position electronically, such as keystone correction. Remember, the lens shift is a mechanical adjustment.

This menu has the various Picture modes, such as Dynamic, and several Cinema modes. I would suggest using Normal or Natural, and then calibrating it from there, which is what I did.

Here are shown the Installation Options.

The Advanced Menu lets you adjust the gamma, contrast, and brightness of each primary color. What this means is more control over the gray scale response, as the RGB levels at the low end of the IRE scale can be adjusted independently from the RGB at the high IRE levels.
