About EasyMP Network Projection
This chapter describes useful functions for EasyMP Network Projection and how to install the software.
Functions of EasyMP Network Projection
Functions of EasyMP Network Projection
You can use EasyMP Network Projection to project your computer
screen from the projector via a network. Sharing the projector over the
network allows you to project data from different computers without
changing the signal cable. Even if the projector is away from the
computer, you can still project data via a network.
Various Screen Transfer Functions
You can use the following screen transfer functions.
5
• Multi-screen display
s "Using Multi-Screen Display" p.29
You can use up to four projectors to project a different image from one
computer. This allows you to project data such as a report on a
landscape screen.
• Movie Sending Mode (supported models only)
s "Projecting Movies on a Computer (Movie Sending Mode)" p.27
You can send movie files directly to a projector which allows the
movies to play smoothly.
• Presentation Mode
s "Projecting Only a PowerPoint Slide Show (Presentation Mode)"
p.26
By using Presentation Mode, you can project only the PowerPoint Slide
Show running on your computer. A black screen is projected when the
Slide Show is not playing. You can start presentations smoothly
without projecting unnecessary images.
Functions of EasyMP Network Projection
• Distribution function
The screen being displayed by a computer can be simultaneously
displayed by up to four projectors on the same network.
You cannot connect multiple computers to one projector
simultaneously.

Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
You can connect the projector and the computer and project to screens
at remote locations (on different subnets).
In Automatic search, projectors on different subnets are not found
because searches are only performed on the same subnet.
You can use the following methods to connect to a projector on a
different subnet.
• 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 "Specifying Either an IP Address or Projector Name and
Performing a Search (Advanced Connection Mode Only)" p.20
• Perform 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 "Performing a Search with a Profile" p.21
q
• If you cannot find a projector, see the following section for the most likely
causes.
s "Troubleshooting" p.46
• When you use Manual search in Quick Connection Mode, you can specify
the SSID. When there are a lot of projectors you can narrow the search field
by using SSID.

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, its IP address, and SSID. You can
specify a profile to search for a projector instead of specifying relevant
details such as the IP address and projector name. For example, by
creating a group of profiles for each place where a projector is setup and
managing them with folders, the target projector can be found quickly.

played with other applications on a computer.
You can also select multiple files and play them repeatedly from first to
last.
However, some projectors may not support movie files.

Arrangement example 1
Multi-screen display mode allows you to project different images from
multiple projectors that are connected to a single computer.
With Windows, multiple virtual displayg drivers can be set in the
computer, and each image can be projected by the projector. This
function is not available with Windows Vista and Windows 7.
For Mac OS X, an external monitor needs to be connected to the
computer to enable this function. While the following explanation refers
to virtual display, for Mac OS X the operation relates to the screens
displayed on the physically connected monitor.
Example of Adjusting the Virtual Display
By arranging the virtual displayg allocation, you can project only the
image that you want to show or project different images from left to right
in a presentation.

Adjusting the Virtual Display
After starting EasyMP Network Projection, the procedure for setting up
the virtual displays differs for Windows and Mac OS X. The procedures
are explained separately below.
q
Check the following points before starting EasyMP Network Projection
when connecting via Wireless LAN. If the following points are not set
correctly, Multi-screen display cannot be used.
• The SSID for the computer and each projector must be the same. (For
Quick Connection Mode)
• The wireless LAN system for the computer and each projector must be the
same.
You can modify the SSID and wireless LAN system for the projector from
the projector's Network menu.
See your projector User’s Guide for details.
B Select the virtual display you want to use.
Up to four monitors can be added. In this example, a single virtual
display is to be used. When setting multiple virtual displays, select
as many displays as necessary.
Any one of the displays can be selected.
C Click OK.
When you click OK, the drivers for the virtual display are enabled.
At this point, it is normal for the display to flicker. Wait for the
Add-Remove Virtual Display screen to close.
For Windows
A Click Start, select Programs (or All Programs), EPSON
Projector, EasyMP Network Projection, and then click
EasyMP Network Projection V2.XX to start EasyMP Network
Projection.
B Select Quick Connection Mode or Advanced Connection
Mode, and then click OK.

Using Multi-Screen Display
E Click the Settings tab.
33
F Drag the displayed monitor icon and place it where desired.
Here, the actual monitor (1) is placed on the left, while the virtual
monitor (3) is placed on the right.
When the PC has multiple display output terminals, the numbers
assigned to the virtual terminals will be sequential to those of the
physical terminals.
q
• When an external monitor is connected as a secondary monitor, the image
for that screen cannot be projected.
• Depending on the hardware, the number of the secondary monitor may be
other than "2". When placing the monitor icons, click the icon to check that
the display monitor type is not the secondary monitor.
Using Multi-Screen Display
• For the Screen Resolution settings, see the following.

To perform mouse-based operations on the virtual display, move
the mouse pointer in the direction of the virtual display so that the
pointer appears on the virtual display.
C To end projection for multi-screen display, click Disconnect
on the toolbar.
q
The image allocated to each projector is projected.
In a Windows environment, if the virtual display driver has been enabled
so that the mouse pointer can be moved outside the limits of the screen,
there may be occasions when you lose track of the location of the pointer. If
you are not using a virtual display, clear the virtual display checkbox on the
Add-Remove EPSON Virtual Display screen so that the mouse pointer
moves back inside the screen's display area. To subsequently use
multi-display again, place a check mark against the required display under
Add-Remove EPSON Virtual Display.
To clear a check mark, see the following.
