Make Sure the Software Is Installed
You may already have the software on your computer, or
you may need to install it yourself. For Mac OS® X, you
need Easy Interactive Driver and Easy Interactive Tools.
For Windows, you only need Easy Interactive Tools.
Here’s how to find out if the software is installed on your
computer:
If you need to install the software
Do one of the following:
• Use the CD that came with the projector, labeled
“EPSON Projector Software for Easy Interactive
Function”
If you are using a Mac:
Look for the Easy Interactive Driver and Easy Interactive
Tools folders in the Application folder on your hard drive.
If you see these folders, the software is installed.
• Download the most up-to-date version from:
epson.com/brightlinkdownloads (U.S.)
epson.ca/brightlinkdownloads (Canada)
For more information about Easy Interactive Tools, see
the Easy Interactive Tools Tips sheet in this Welcome
Kit or the BrightLink User’s Guide.
If you are using Windows:
Select
or Start > All Programs or Programs >
EPSON Projector > Easy Interactive Tools Ver. 2.00. If
you see Easy Interactive Tools Ver. 2.00, the software is
installed.
You can also install TeamBoard Draw, an intermediate
level annotation program, from the CD that came with the
projector.
For more information, see the TeamBoard Draw Tips
sheet in this Welcome Kit or the TeamBoard videos at
epson.com/brightlink (U.S.) or epson.ca/brightlink
(Canada).
If the software is not installed, follow the steps in the next
column to install it.
3 Calibrate
Calibration coordinates the position of the pen with the
location of your cursor. If the pen position and cursor
location don’t match, you can try auto calibration, or you
can calibrate manually for even greater accuracy. You
don’t need a computer, and you won’t need to calibrate
again unless the projector or image is moved, or the
image is resized.

Use the Built-In Toolbar
The projector’s built-in toolbar lets you annotate images
from other devices that have been connected to the
projector, such as a document camera, tablet, or other
source. You can write with only one pen at a time, but
you can use both pens and trade off.
1
Press one of the Source buttons on the remote
control to select the source for the image you want
to annotate. (Make sure you do not select the same
source that is selected for Easy Interactive Function
in the Extended menu.)
Two different toolbars are available, one for annotation
mode and one for whiteboard mode.
• Annotation mode displays the built-in toolbar on
whatever image is being projected.
• Whiteboard mode lets you project a white or black
screen or background pattern, and use the pen to write
or draw as you would on a chalkboard or dry erase
board.
