InFocus IN5148HD Projector Review – Hardware Tour 2:  Menus

The IN5148HD has a rather straight forward menu structure making for easy access to the most frequently used adjustments.

The projector’s “Basic” menu, as shown in the 1st gallery photo above, provides access to the most frequently used picture adjustments as well as providing access other to the menus for such features as the lens adjustments, as shown in the 2nd photo above.

The less frequently needed adjustments/settings are grouped under the “Advanced” menu, that is accessed from the Basic menu.  The top-level Advanced menu is shown in the 3rd photo above.  As seen on the left side of the Advanced menu, there are items that bring up the submenus for the image adjustments, projector setup options, projector status/service information and a final item to return back to the Basic menu.  Of the Image adjustments from the advanced menu, the Color sub-menu, shown in the 4th photo above, provides the useful controls for adjusting the color balance/grey scale, gamma and a few other things.  The Setup menu, as shown in the 5th photo above, provides access to a number of sub-menus for setting such things as the lamp normal vs. eco. power mode, setting up the network connection, and many other things.

The 5th, and final, photo above shows the Status/Service menu.  Under the Status/Service menu there are sub-menus can be accessed to display the projector’s status as well as to reset the projector to its factory settings, reset the lamp hours (for when installing a new lamp), as well as few other things.
