First, the position of the projected image 2 is adjusted so that the optical sensors 11 to 14 arranged on the projection surface 3 are located inside the projected image 2 (within the projection range). Specifically, the zoom unit 22 of the image projection device 4 sets the zoom value to the maximum by the optical zoom function, and the lens shift unit 23 of the image projection device 4 adjusts the position of the projection image 2 by the lens shift function. To do. The zoom value does not necessarily have to be set to the maximum.
  Next, the projection unit 25 of the image projection device 4 projects a test signal (FIG. 3) for detecting the positions of the optical sensors 11 to 14 onto the projection image 2. The test signal is projected corresponding to each vertical line (white) with a width of 1 dot, and the projection destination is moved in the horizontal direction in the projected image 2 in time sequence (sequentially along the time axis). At that time, information detected by the optical sensors 11 to 14 is transmitted to the acquisition unit 20 of the video projection device 4 as a response signal. The transmission may be transmission via a wire or transmission by wireless communication.
  And the detection part 21 of the image projection apparatus 4 detects the position of the horizontal direction of the optical sensors 11-14 by comparing a response signal and the input signal of a test signal. Specifically, the timing at which the response signal is output is compared with the timing at which the test signal is projected, and the test signal at the time when the optical sensors 11 to 14 detect the test signal in the horizontal direction of the projection destination line. Detect position.
  Thereafter, projection is performed for each horizontal line (white) having a width of 1 dot (FIG. 4), and the projection destination is moved in the vertical direction in the projection image 2 in time order (sequentially along the time axis). At that time, information detected by the optical sensors 11 to 14 is transmitted to the acquisition unit 20 of the video projection device 4 as a response signal. The transmission may be transmission via a wire or transmission by wireless communication.

  Note that the above-mentioned “vertical” and “horizontal” are directions used for the sake of convenience, and do not necessarily coincide with the actual directions. The test signal projection method is not limited to the above method. For example, when different signals are simultaneously projected for each dot, and response signals that can identify each dot are transmitted from the optical sensors 11 to 14. It may be.
  FIG. 5 is a diagram showing coordinates for digitizing the position of the detected optical sensor. Here, the coordinate axes of the x axis and the y axis are taken as shown in FIG.

  Each coordinate value acquired as described above indicates the size desired by the viewer for the projected image (horizontal X and vertical Y) when the zoom value is maximized. Therefore, it is possible to obtain a reduction ratio and a center point position of a desired size with respect to a projection image whose horizontal is X and vertical is Y, and the projection image 2 can be adjusted to a desired size in the adjustment unit.
