Frequently asked questions
What is the right distance for my projector?
Go to the page for the type of projector on the Optoma website. Click on ‘distance calculator’. You then enter the width of the projection you require and the calculator will indicate the distance at which the projector should hang.
How do I send my image to the projector from a Windows PC?
Connect your laptop with the projector via a VGA cable or an HDMI lead. Then press the ‘Windows’ button on your keyboard and the P button simultaneously. The menu will then ask if you wish to duplicate the laptop screen.
How large should the projection be?
The maximum viewing distance depends on what you display on your screen.
For Excel, you take the height of the screen x4 as maximum viewing distance. For Powerpoint, you take the height of the screen x6 as maximum viewing distance.
