Multi-screen display mode allows you to project different images from multiple projectors that are connected to a single computer.
With Windows, multiple virtual display drivers can be set in the computer, and each image can be projected by the projector. This function is not available
with Windows Vista due to restrictions in the Windows Vista specifications.
For Macintosh, an external monitor must be connected to the computer to enable the function. While the following explanation refers to virtual display,
for Macintosh the operation relates to the screens displayed on the physically connected monitor.

Connecting to a Projector on a Different Sub-net
This chapter explains how to connect a computer to a projector on a different sub-net via a Wired LAN access point on an existing network system.
Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
By default, this application only searches for projectors on the same
subnet as the computer. Therefore, even if you perform a search for
projectors on the network, ones on a different subnet will not be found.
You can, however, identify and connect to a projector on a different
subnet as follows:
• Specify either an IP address or Projector Name and perform a search.
The IP Address can be input directly. Also, provided the Projector
name to be connected has been registered on the DNS server, you can
perform a search simply by inputting that Projector name.s p.33
• Performing a search based on a Profile
Once you have performed a search for a projector on a different subnet
by specifying either an IP Address or a Projector name, you can save
the search as a Profile with an easy-to-remember name, and then use
that Profile whenever you subsequently want to search for a projector
on a different subnet.s p.34
32
Searching by Specifying the IP Address and Projector name
Searching by Specifying the IP Address and Projector name
In the following explanations, unless otherwise noted, Windows screen
shots are used.

B Enter the IP address or the Projector name for the projector
you want to connect to, and click "OK".
Procedure
A
Click "Manual search" on the EasyMP Network Projection
projector selection screen.
The search results are displayed on the EasyMP Network Projection projector selection screen.
Provided the target projector has been identified, select that projector, and then click Connect to establish a connection.
When you will always be using that projector, save the search as a
Profile, so that you do not have to specify the relevant details every
time you perform a search. s p.34
Performing a Search with a Profile
Performing a Search with a Profile
You can save a search for a frequently used projector as a Profile. A
Profile is a file containing all of the information pertaining to a given
projector, such as the Projector name and its IP address. By specifying
the profile each time you perform a search, there is no need to enter the
IP Address or Projector name. For example, by creating a group of
Profile for each place where a projector is setup and managing them with
folders, the target projector can be found quickly.
34
Making a Profile
Profile is made by saving search results.
For details on how to edit a previously saved Profile, see the following
section. s p.36

Using the Mail Notification Function to Report Problems
Using the Mail Notification Function to Report Problems
By setting the Mail Notification function from the projector's
Configuration Menu, notification messages will be sent to the preset
email addresses when a problem or warning occurs with a projector. This
will enable the operator to be notified of problems with projectors even at
locations away from the projectors.
q
• Up to a maximum of three notification destinations (Addresses) can be
recorded, and notification messages can be sent to all three destinations at
once.
• If a projector develops a critical problem and suddenly stops working, it
may not be able to send a message notifying an operator of the problem.
• Monitoring is possible if Network On is set from the Extended menu of the
projector's Configuration Menu, even if the projector is in Standby Mode
(when the power is off).
45
Management Using SNMP
Management Using SNMP
By setting SNMP from the projector's Configuration Menu, notification
messages are sent to preset e-mail addresses when a problem or warning
occurs with a projector. This is useful when controlling projectors
collectively at a point distant from them.
q
• SNMP should be managed by a network administrator or someone who is
familiar with the network.
• To use the SNMP function to monitor the projector, you need to install the
SNMP manager program on your computer.
• Up to two destination IP addresses can be saved.
