SETTINGS
NOTE: This feature is only available when a LightCast key is attached to one of the USB-A inputs on the projector.
To access setting options, click the Settings gear icon in the lower right corner of the LightCast home page.
Network Settings
WiFi - WiFi Settings allows you to turn WiFi on and off, and to select and connect to visible SSIDs.
Access Point allows you to configure the projector as a WiFi access point. The internet connection is passed down from the wired
connection. This is also useful for casting video using LightCast or AirPlay when another network is not available. (See "Access Point
Setup" on page 39 for additional information.)
LAN Network Settings allows you to set up a wired network connection between the projector (if this feature is available) and the wired
network. The wired network connection can be configured as fixed or non-fixed IP or go through a proxy.
Require PIN for Casting allows you to enable or disable a security PIN for casting onto the projector. When enabled, the user must
enter a random eight digit PIN to connect. The PIN displays in the top center of the screen.

Device
Use this submenu to define the projector name, determine how much local storage on the projector is available, and when the projector
should go to sleep.
Device Name displays the current device name. Click the name to edit it. This helps differentiate between different projectors that have
LightCast enabled.
Device Storage Availability and Capacity displays the current flash memory usage.
Device Timeout puts the LightCast projector to sleep but does not shut off the projector immediately. If no other video sources are
active or if Auto Source is disabled, the projector shuts off based on the Sleep Timer setting in the projector menu (20 minutes by
default).

•
Factory reset completely erases all personal data in memory, including registration information, and return all settings to default.
Registration Reset erases the registration information but not personal data in memory.
Reboot restarts LightCast while the projector continues to run. LightCast displays when the reboot is complete.

MIRACAST
Miracast uses the network differently than AirPlay and the LightCast Sender App. Miracast connects directly using WiFi protocol
between your sending device and the LightCast (receiving) device. Your sending device (PC or mobile device) must be Miracast
compatible in order for communication to occur. No router or internet connection is needed.
LIGHTCAST SENDER APP
The three server addresses listed below must be entered into the firewall allowing them through on UDP port 443 outbound. UDP
ports 5000-65534 are required for internal network communication only and should not be opened outside of the firewall, or blocked
internally.
