About EasyMP Network Projection
This chapter describes useful functions for EasyMP Network Projection and how to install the software.
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.26
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 "Playing Movies" p.24
You can send movie files directly to a projector which allows movies to
be played smoothly.
• Presentation Mode
s "Projecting Only a PowerPoint Slide Show (Presentation Mode)"
p.23
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.
• 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
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.

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.
The Save in the profile screen is displayed.

Various Projection Styles
This chapter explains the functions that may be useful in a meeting or presentation, such as the Multi-Screen Display which allows you to send images to
multiple projectors from a single computer.
Projecting Only a PowerPoint Slide Show (Presentation Mode)
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.
In addition to PowerPoint, Keynote is compatible with Presentation Mode
for Mac OS X.

Using Multi-Screen Display
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.
