Positioning the Projector
❏ Maximum diagonal size =
(projection distance[inches] x 2.54 x 0.32827 + 1.6767)
Follow these guidelines:
❏ Minimum diagonal size =
(projection distance[inches] x 2.54 x 0.203 + 1.077)
❏ Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface between
2.8 and 48.3 feet from the screen. Image size generally
increases with distance, but may vary depending on the
position of the zoom ring and other settings.
To determine the projection distance (in inches) when you
know the diagonal size of the screen image:
❏ Maximum projection distance =
((diagonal size[inches] x 4.92611) - 5.30542) / 2.54
❏ Minimum projection distance =
((diagonal size[inches] x 3.04627) - 5.10769) / 2.54
Connecting the Projector
29.8 to 48.3 ft
5.8 to 9.5 ft
2.8 to 4.7 ft
Distance
from screen
You can connect the projector to two computer sources or
four video sources—up to a total of four sources. You can
include an independent sound channel for each source. (See
the User’s Guide for complete setup instructions.)
❏ Place it within 10 feet of an electrical outlet or extension
cord and 5 feet of your computer or video source.
❏ Allow space for ventilation around and under the projector.
❏ To avoid a keystone shaped image (an image that is wider
on one side), place the projector directly in front of the
center of the screen, facing the screen squarely.
❏ If possible, place the projector level with the bottom of the
screen.
Note: The preview feature lets you see all the sources at a glance,
so you can easily switch to the one you want. See page 5.
Types of Connections
The following connections are possible, depending on the
signal your equipment generates and its available output ports.
Computer equipment
If you place the projector too far below the screen, you may
have to tilt it up by extending the front adjustable foot (see
page 7). This causes the projected image to lose its shape, but
the projector automatically compensates. If the image is still
not square, adjust it manually by pressing the Keystone
buttons (see page 7) or using Quick Corner (see page 8).
If you place the projector higher than the bottom of the
screen, the image will be square, but it won’t fill the screen.
Note: Formulas given here apply only when the image is not
tilted. If you tilt the image up by extending the projector’s foot or
using electronic keystone correction, your image size may vary.
To determine the diagonal size of an image (in inches) when
you know the projection distance:

Calculating Image Size and Projection
Distance
Use the formulas below to find out how large the image will
be when you know the distance from projector to screen, or to
find out how far from the screen to place the projector if you
want an image of a certain size. Since you can change the
image size by adjusting the zoom, formulas are given for
calculating both minimum and maximum sizes.

you’re standing at too great a distance from the projector, ambient
light is too bright, a certain type of fluorescent light is present, or
other equipment emitting infrared energy is present (such as a
