Holding Frequent Meetings with Ease
This chapter explains how to save and organize projector information used during a meeting allowing you to hold subsequent meetings with ease.
Saving Projector Information
By saving the projector information used during the first meeting, you can
participate smoothly in subsequent meetings when they are held in the
same environment.
You can save projector information by creating a shortcut or registering the
information to a profile.
27
You can register a profile by using one of the following methods.
a
When registering projectors from the List of Connected Projectors
If you want to register projectors displayed in the List of Connected
Projectors to a Profile, click Register.
Creating a Shortcut
When creating a shortcut, information for the selected projectors is saved in
the shortcut file. When you start EasyMP Multi PC Projection from the
shortcut, EasyMP Multi PC Projection automatically searches for the
projectors saved in the shortcut file.
When holding regular meetings in the same environment, creating a
shortcut allows you to start meetings smoothly.
You can use one of the following methods to create a shortcut:
• Right-click the projector to be saved from the Profile or Projector List,
and then select Create Shortcut.
• Select the projector to be saved from the Profile or Projector List, and
then drag and drop to the location where you want to create the
shortcut.
a
When only registering a specific projector
If you want to register one specific projector to a profile, right-click
the projector you want to register from the projector list, and then
select Add Item to Profile.
Creating a folder shortcut saves information for multiple projectors
contained in the folder.
When registering all projectors found by the search
Right-click one of the projectors in the projector list, and then select
Add All to Profile. You can register all of the projectors displayed in
the projector list.
You can search for multiple projectors at the same time when you
start the program.
Registering a Profile
You can save information for the projectors you have searched for in a
profile. When connecting to the same projectors next time, you can easily
search for the projectors.
b
Enter the projector name and select or create the folder where
you want to save the profile, and then click OK.
Saving Projector Information
28
a
In the profile list, right-click the folder containing the profile you
want to share, and then select Export.
b

the profile.
Importing the shared profile
Follow the steps below to import the shared profile to EasyMP Multi PC
Projection.
a
• To register a projector, you can drag and drop the projector you
want to register from the projector list to the Profile list folder.
• The folder structure can be six folders deep.
Sharing a Profile
You can share the created profile list with other participants. This allows
participants joining a session for the first time to easily search for the
projectors.
Exporting the profile you want to share
Follow the steps below to export the registered profile.
a
In the profile list, right-click the folder containing the profile you
want to import, and then select Import.
b
