Setting Up Your Projector Properly

Is your projector set up right or did you just get a new one?

First off, make sure your projector is focussed, fills the screen, and has been keystone corrected. Make sure you do what you can to prevent error messages.

Now, to do this, I’d use these features available in many projectors. Leave the blue screen on. That will help you fill the screen. To do that, I’d start by zooming and then look for the corner pinning option on the projector (if it has it). If you don’t have it, keystone correction is the next place I’d look. Also make sure you use “lens” shift if you can.

When you’re setting up a mounted projector, motorized lenses are your friend. So are wired remotes and network control.

Watch the video and try these tips from Paul Alan Clifford to get the most from it.
