How do I project the same image on a projection screen and a computer monitor or laptop at the same time?

    See below for the type of equipment you are connecting.

    PC

    • Connect an external monitor with a VGA computer cable to the projector's Monitor Out port.
    • Connect an HDMI splitter to the source and connect HDMI cables from the splitter to the projector and an HDMI monitor.
    • With a laptop, connect an HDMI or VGA cable to the projector and laptop. After you connect the cable, do one of the following to display the image shown on the projection screen:

      Note: Mirroring the display may not be supported on all laptops.

      • Press the Windows logo and P keys on your keyboard at the same time and then select Duplicate.
      • Press the Fn and monitor (or CRT/LCD) key on the keyboard at the same time. (See your laptop manual for details.) Wait a few seconds for an image to appear.

        Note: If the same image is not displayed by the laptop and projector, make sure your video or graphic card utilities are set to multiple display (Clone, Mirror or Duplicate).

    Mac

    • Connect an external monitor with a VGA computer cable to the projector's Monitor Out port.
    • Connect an HDMI splitter to the source and connect HDMI cables from the splitter to the projector and an HDMI monitor.

      Note: An adapter may be required to use a VGA or HDMI connection with a Mac.

      2. Click Displays, Display, or Color LCD.
      3. Click the Arrange or Arrangement tab.
      4. Select the Mirror Displays checkbox.
