You can set up the projector in a variety of ways. The projector’s short-throw
lens leaves plenty of room for your audience and allows you to present
comfortably in front of them without casting a shadow on the screen.
Connect the projector to a computer or video source using any of the available
connections shown below.
To install the projector in a classroom or
other setting, you can mount the projector
to a wall or compatible whiteboard using
an optional Epson® wall mounting system.
Using an interactive whiteboard, you can
even control your computer presentation
by touching the projected display on the
board surface.
You should have the following items:
•
•A VGA computer cable is included. You can purchase optional video
•You can connect up to 4 video devices and use the remote control to
and audio cables through Epson or an electronics store.

The distance between the projector and the screen determines the size of the
image, and can vary depending on the aspect ratio (width-to-height ratio) of
the image and your screen. Ideally, you should place the projector between
26 and 48 inches from the screen or whiteboard. Be sure to include the slight
offset from the center of the projector’s lens to the edge of your image.
Here are the approximate distances and offsets you should use in placing the
projector for images displayed in the projector’s native 16:10 aspect ratio:
Audio2 and Audio1 ports
