Connecting a projector to an image source


Except for a few models a projector can not directly display images from USB memories. You will have to connect the projector to an image source. For example a computer, a DVD player, an iPad, etc.

You may connect a projector to any computer or any other image source as long as you have the required cable. There area a few cables for doing so and you may identify them by their connectors. Take a look at the connectors guide.

The two most common connectors are the VGA and HDMI connectors and our projectors include both. If you need any help figuring out what connectors do you need feel free to contact us: or call us on .

  3. Switch the projector on.
  4. Switch the image source.
  5. Configure the image source (if needed).
