Connecting a Computer to the Control Pad

If your computer meets the system requirements, you can send video and audio output to the projector through the control pad's USB-B port (preferably USB 2.0). Connect the projector and your computer to the control pad using USB cables.
Caution:
Make sure the control pad is positioned no more than 6.5 ft (2 m) away from the projector, and no obstacles are blocking the signal from the projector. Do not place the control pad behind the projection surface.
Note: This also lets you use the interactive pens with your computer. You need to adjust the USB Type B setting in the projector's Extended menu before you can project through the USB port. Note that using USB Display will slow interactive pen function. For the best performance, VGA or HDMI connections are recommended, in addition to the USB connection for interactive pen usage.
  1. Turn on your computer.
  2. Make sure a USB cable is connected between the USB-B port on the projector and the USB-A port on the control pad.
  3. Connect another USB cable to the USB port on the bottom of the control pad and any available USB port on your computer.


  4. To use USB Display, do one of the following:
    • Windows 8.x: Click EPSON_PJ_UD in the upper right-corner, then select Run EMP_UDSe.exe in the dialog box that appears to install the Epson USB Display software.
    • Windows 7/Windows Vista: Select Run EMP_UDSE.exe in the dialog box that appears to install the Epson USB Display software.
    • Windows XP: Wait as messages appear on your computer screen and the projector installs the Epson USB Display software on your computer.
    • Windows 2000: Select Computer, EPSON_PJ_UD, and EMP_UDSE.EXE to install the Epson USB Display software.
    • OS X: The USB Display setup folder appears on your screen. Select USB Display Installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install the Epson USB Display software.
    Follow any on-screen instructions. You need to install this software only the first time you connect the projector to the computer.
The projector displays the image from your computer's desktop and outputs sound, if your presentation contains audio.
