Video Connections

1. Place the projector on a flat surface or using a ceiling mount kit, on the ceiling.
If you want to project from behind a rear projection screen, set up the projector behind
your screen.

2. Position the projector the desired distance from the screen.
The distance from the lens of the projector to the screen and the zoom setting determine
the size of the projected image. See the table on page 7 for maximum and minimum
distances for a given screen size.

3. Make sure the projector and source equipment and/or computer are turned off.
Make sure the projector is unplugged and your equipment is turned off.

WARNING: Do not place the projector on a tablecloth or other soft covering that may block the vents.

Do not use a non-Knöll ceiling mount. In the unlikely event of the bulb rupturing, thoroughly clean the

area in front of the projector and discard any edible items placed in that area


Connecting a Video Device

You can connect VCRs, DVD players, camcorders, digital cameras, video games, HDTV receivers, and TV
tuners to the projector. (You cannot directly connect the coaxial cable that enters your house from a cable or
satellite company; the signal must pass through a tuner first. Examples of tuners are digital cable boxes,
VCRs, digital video recorders, and satellite TV boxes. Basically, any device that can change channels is
considered a tuner.) Audio must be provided by your own speakers, as the projector has no separate audio
controls. If
