Projector Placement Projector Connections Installing Batteries in the Remote Control Installing Batteries in the Interactive Pen Projector Placement You can place the projector on almost any flat surface to project an image. You can also install the projector in a ceiling or wall mount if you want to use it in a fixed location. Keep these considerations in mind as you select a projector location: • Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface or install it using a compatible mount. • Leave plenty of space around and under the projector for ventilation, and do not place it on top of or next to anything that could block the vents. • Position the projector within reach of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord. Projector Setup and Installation Options Projection Distance Parent topic: Setting Up the Projector Projector Setup and Installation Options You can set up or install your projector to view presentations in the following ways: Front 27 Rear Front ceiling Rear ceiling 28 Wall-mounted Wherever you set up the projector, make sure to position it squarely in front of the screen, not at an angle. If you project from the ceiling or wall, or from the rear, be sure to select the correct Projection option in the projector's menu system. Note: Interactivity is not available when using rear or rear ceiling projection. Parent topic: Projector Placement Projection Distance The distance at which you place the projector from the screen determines the approximate size of the image. The image size increases the farther the projector is from the screen, but can vary depending on the zoom factor, aspect ratio, and other settings. Refer to the tables in the Installation Guide to determine approximately how far to place the projector from the screen based on the size of the projected image. (Conversion figures may have been rounded up or down.) You can also use the projector Throw Distance Calculator at http://www.epson.com/support (U.S.) or http://www.epson.ca/support (Canada). Parent topic: Projector Placement 29 Projector Connections You can connect the projector to a variety of computer, video, and audio sources to display presentations, movies, or other images, with or without sound. • Connect any type of computer that has a USB port, standard video output (monitor) port, or HDMI port. • For video projection, connect devices such as DVD players, gaming consoles, digital cameras, and camera phones with compatible video output ports. • If your presentation or video includes sound, you can connect audio input cables, if necessary. • For slide shows without a computer, you can connect USB devices (such as a flash drive or camera) or an optional Epson document camera. Caution: If you will use the projector at altitudes above 4921 feet (1500 m), turn on High Altitude Mode to ensure the projector's internal temperature is regulated properly. Connecting to Computer Sources Connecting to Video Sources Connecting to an External Computer Monitor Connecting to External Speakers Connecting a Microphone Connecting to External USB Devices Connecting to a Document Camera Parent topic: Setting Up the Projector Related references Projector Setup Settings - Extended Menu Product Box Contents Connecting to Computer Sources Follow the instructions in these sections to connect a computer to the projector. Connecting to a Computer for USB Video and Audio Connecting to a Computer for VGA Video Connecting to a Computer for HDMI Video and Audio Connecting to a Computer for Pen Use or USB Mouse Control Connecting to a Computer for Sound 30 Parent topic: Projector Connections Connecting to a Computer for USB Video and Audio If your computer meets the system requirements, you can send video and audio output to the projector through the computer's USB port (preferably USB 2.0). Connect the projector to your computer using a USB cable. Note: You may experience slow interactive pen function when connecting the projector to your computer using USB Display. For the best interactive performance, VGA or HDMI cable connections are recommended. 1. Turn on your computer. 2. Connect the cable to your projector's USB TypeB port. 3. Connect the other end to any available USB port on your computer. 4. To use USB Display, do one of the following: • Windows 8: Click EPSON_PJ_UD in the upper right-corner, then select Run EMP_UDSE.exe in the dialog box that appears to install the Epson USB Display software. • Windows 7/Windows Vista: Select Run EMP_UDSE.exe in the dialog box that appears to install the Epson USB Display software. • Windows XP: Wait as messages appear on your computer screen and the projector installs the Epson USB Display software on your computer. • Mac OS X: The USB Display setup folder appears on your screen. Select USB Display Installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install the Epson USB Display software. Follow any on-screen instructions. You need to install this software only the first time you connect the projector to the computer. 31 The projector displays the image from your computer's desktop and outputs sound, if your presentation contains audio.
