Connecting to video equipment
Connecting to video equipment
You can connect the projector to any type of video equipment, such as a DVD or Blu-ray player, digital
tuner, cable or satellite decoder, video game console or digital camera. You can also connect it to a
desktop PC, a laptop PC, or Apple Macintosh system. You can connect the projector to a source device
using just one of the connecting methods; however, each provides a different level of video quality. The
method you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the
projector and the video source device as described below:
When connecting a signal source to the projector, be sure to:
1. Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
2. Use only the correct type cables for each source with proper type plugs.
3. Ensure that all cable plugs are firmly fitted to the equipment jacks.
Note that all cables shown in the following connection diagrams may not be supplied with the projector (See
"Shipping contents" on page 6 for details). Most cables are commercially available from electronics
Connecting HDMI devices
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) supports uncompressed video data transmission between
compatible devices like DTV tuners, DVD or Blu-ray players and displays over a single cable. It provides
pure digital viewing and listening experience. You should use an HDMI cable when making connection
between the projector and HDMI devices.
