on your computer simultaneously.
Connecting to video sources

disc player, digital camera, and other video sources to your
projector. See page 22 for instructions.

sources, zoom in on part of your image, freeze or mute the
presentation, and adjust many other projector features. For

By connecting an additional cable, you can also use the remote
control as a wireless mouse. This lets you click through
