Quick Setup
3 Connect your equipment
You can connect the projector to a computer or video source such as a DVD
player, VCR, HDTV tuner, cable or satellite box, camcorder, or video game
console. Check the specifications in the projector User’s Guide for compatible
video formats.
Choosing a location
The easiest way to set up your projector is to place it on a table
in front of your screen or wall, or on a high shelf behind you.
See the User’s Guide for other ways of setting up the projector.
Table
Shelf
The projector has four types of connections, as shown below. Each one is colorcoded and requires a different type of cable (not included). You can connect up
to four video sources and use the remote control to switch from one to the other.
Check the connectors on your video equipment. If more than one
connection is available, choose the one that provides the best quality.
For example, component video produces higher quality images than
S-video or composite video.
Make sure you have the right cable for the connection you want to use,
and the cable is long enough for your setup. For longer cable lengths,
use a high quality cable to minimize signal degradation and
interference, or consider using a distribution amplifier.
Connect your video equipment to the projector using any of the
available connections shown below.
Projector can be offset from
center by up to 25 percent of
the image’s width

The projector does not have to be aligned with the middle of the
screen. Just make sure it faces straight ahead (at a 90-degree angle
to the screen), and then use the horizontal lens shift dial to position
the image (see “Adjust the image” on the back of this sheet).
