How do I set up my projector?
- Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface or install it using a compatible mount.
- Leave plenty of space around and under the projector for ventilation, and do not place it on top of or next to anything that could block the vents.
- Position the projector within reach of a grounded electrical outlet or extension cord.
You can place the projector on almost any flat surface to project an image.
You can also install the projector in a ceiling mount if you want to use it in a fixed location.
Keep these considerations in mind as you select a projector location:

You can mount the projector to the ceiling at any horizontal or vertical angle.
If you are installing multiple projectors next to each other, be sure to leave at least 20 inches (50 cm) of space between the projectors. Also, make sure heated air from an exhaust vent does not go into the air intake vent of another projector.
If you project from the ceiling or from the rear, select the correct Projection setting and, if necessary, turn on the Inv Direction Button setting and adjust the OSD Rotation setting.Related references
