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.
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.

Projector Setup and Installation Options
You can set up or install your projector in the following ways:
Wherever you set up the projector, make sure to position it squarely in front of the center of the screen, not at an angle, if possible. If the projector cannot be centered in front of the screen, use lens shift to reposition the image instead of using keystone correction for better image quality.
If you project from the ceiling or from the rear, be sure to select the correct Projection setting in the projector's Installation menu.Related references
