How do I set up my projector?

  • 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. A mounting plate is required when installing the projector on a VESA-compliant mount.

    There is no vertical or horizontal limit to how the projector can be installed.

    Keep these considerations in mind as you select a projector location:

    • Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface or install it using a compatible mount.
    • Place the projector parallel to the screen.
    • 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.

    Make sure you read the safety instructions when placing or mounting your projector. See the link below.

    Projector Setup and Installation Options

    You can set up or install your projector in the following ways:



    Front ceiling

    Rear ceiling

    Note: Be sure to leave the following amount of space around the projector to avoid blocking the air exhaust and intake vents.

    1 3.94 inches (10 cm)
    2 7.87 inches (20 cm)
    3 11.81 inches (30 cm)

    Install the AC adapter more than 11.8 inches (30 cm) away from the projector. If the temperature of the AC adapter rises due to heat from the projector, the projector may not operate properly.

    If you project from the ceiling or from the rear, be sure to select the correct Projection setting in the Settings menu. If necessary, adjust the OSD Rotation setting in the Settings > Installation menu.
