Connection
When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:
1.
Turn all equipment off before making any connections.
2.
Use the correct signal cables for each source.
3.
Ensure the cables are firmly inserted. 
In the connections shown below, some cables may not be included with the projector (see 
"Shipping contents" on page 10
). They are commercially available from electronics stores.
Wireless connection (optional)
The Wireless module allows for simultaneous wireless connectivity to multiple computers 
which are wireless enabled. This saves you from having to swap data cables between the 
projector and different computers during a presentation. Wireless connectivity is most 
suitable for situations where multiple presenters with separate notebooks are required to 
seamlessly present individual presentations, like in meetings, conferences, lectures and, 
classrooms. 
The Wireless module connects and attaches to the rear of the projector through the DVI-I 
socket.
While the Wireless module is attached to the projector, you cannot use the DVI-I socket for DVI 
cable connections.
Even though the projector may be using a wireless data connection, it still requires physical 
connection to a power outlet using its power cable.
You can purchase a BenQ wireless module from 
BenQ retailers. You should attach the wireless 
module to the projector before you connect any 
other cables. Refer to the user's manual 
enclosed with the wireless module for 
connection and operation details.

Connecting a computer
The projector provides a VGA and DVI input sockets that allow you to connect it to both 
IBM® compatibles and Macintosh® computers. A Mac adapter (an optional accessory) is 
needed if you are connecting legacy version Macintosh computers.
Additionally, you can also connect the projector to a computer via the USB cable so you can 
perform paging operations of the application on the PC or notebook. (see
 
"Remote paging 
operations" on page 42
).
