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 7
). They are commercially available from electronics stores.
Connecting a computer or monitor
Connecting a computer
The projector provides a VGA input socket that allows 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.
To connect the projector to a notebook or desktop computer:
The final connection path should be like that shown in the following diagram:
With  a  VGA  cable:
With  a  DVI-D  cable:
Your computer must be 
equipped with a DVI-D 
output socket.
With a HDMI cable:
Your computer must 
be equipped with a 
HDMI output socket.
1.
Take a VGA cable and connect 
one end to the D-Sub output 
socket of the computer. 
Connect the other end of the 
VGA cable to the D-SUB/
COMP. IN signal input socket 
on the projector. 
1.
Take a DVI-D cable and 
connect one end to the DVI-D 
output socket of the computer. 
Connect the other end of the 
cable to the DVI-D signal input 
socket on the projector.
1.
Take a HDMI cable and 
connect one end to the 
HDMI socket of the 
computer. Connect the 
other end of the cable to the 
HDMI signal input socket 
on the projector.
2.
If you wish to use the remote paging function, take a USB cable and connect the larger end to the USB port 
of the computer, and the smaller end to the 
 (USB) socket on the projector. See 
"Remote paging 
operations" on page 35
 for details.
3.
If you wish to make use of the projector (mixed mono) speakers in your presentations, take a suitable 
audio cable and connect one end of the cable to the audio output socket of the computer, and the other 
end to the AUDIO socket of the projector. 
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen Display (OSD) menus. See 
"Audio Settings" on page 44
 for details.

Many notebooks do not turn 
on their external video ports 
when connected to a 
projector. Usually a key 
combo like FN + F3 or CRT/
LCD key turns the external 
display on/off. Locate a 
function key labeled CRT/
LCD or a function key with a 
monitor symbol on the 
notebook. Press FN and the 
labeled function key 
simultaneously. Refer to 
your notebook's 
documentation to find your 
notebook's key combination.
