3.3 Starting the Network Presentation
This chapter explains the Network Presentation feature with which you can project computer images transmitted
through a network.
The LiveViewer allows you to project images from one or multiple computers by connecting the projector to an
existing network without using computer cables. This Network Presentation feature helps you to smoothly make your
presentations and conduct conferences.
To start the Network Presentation, select the LAN port as the input source on the projector and click the start capture
button on the LiveViewer.
3.3.1 Display Mode
In LiveViewer, there are two display modes, Single PC mode and Multi PC mode.
¾
Single PC mode
The projector displays images sent by one computer. Also audio can be sent by one computer. ( 33)
¾
Multi PC mode
The projector can display images of up to four computers of connected at the same time.
NOTE
•
•
•
•
•
•
Audio cannot be sent in the Multi PC mode.
When multiple computers are connected and try to communicate with one projector, data transfer performance may
decrease.
When motion pictures are displayed on screen of the projector, it is not recommended to connect more than five
computers with the projector.
When multiple computers are connected to one projector, it is recommended to consult with network administrator to
establish suitable connection environment with less load given to network as possible.
Picture quality may deteriorate or audio output may be interrupted due to low data transfer rate caused by low
communication band between computer and projector when multiple computers are communicating with projector.
If you try to connect via network to the projector which another computer has been using as a USB display, it might
reduce transfer rate causing deterioration of image quality or interruption of audio output.
