7 m (23´) from the surfaces of the receptor. Furthermore, the remote control
unit can be operated from an angle of ±30° to the left or right and ±15°

NOTE:
B If there are any obstacles in between the remote control unit and the
receptor, the remote control unit may not operate correctly.
B If strong light is allowed to shine onto the remote control signal receptor,
correct projector operation may not be possible. Place the projector as
far away from light sources as possible.
B If facing the remote control unit toward the screen to operate the projector,
the operating range of the remote control unit will be limited by the amount
of light reflection loss caused by the characteristics of the screen used.
