Setting up a LCD Data Projector

The lens of a data projector projects asymmetrically. The lens should be mounted in such a way that it would be just above the lower border of the screen and at the center of the screen width. Setting up the projector by mounting the lens at low height enables the projector to be set up in front of the audience but doesn’t obstruct the view.

Setting up an Overhead Projector

This projector needs to be set up atop a table or a cart, at the height of around 75 to 90 cm to facilitate ease of use. The projector should be positioned at the center of both length and width of the screen, or else the image will be disfigured.

Setting up a Slide Projector

A slide projector can be set up on a table having adjustable legs. Its lens should be centered on the screen, both lengthwise and widthwise. Slide projector projects an image in a 2:3 ratio. If top and bottom of the screen are adjusted, the projected image can fill the screen. The zoom lens too should be adjusted so as to place the projector close to the back of the room and it won’t obstruct the view.
