Instructions for the Epson Projector/Pen

You need to do these instructions if you wish to use the pen. If you only want to project, hook up the vga cable to the wall and the dongle to your macbook.  

 

In self service, Utilities, install the driver  (Team centers 6-3, 7-3, the basement and the mac lab in the library use the  485 driver, rest of building is 450 and 455 driver). Install the tools (same for all models).

 

For the 450/455 Epson projectors:

Plug in the vga/dongle cable to wall and laptop. Plug in the usb cord from wall (that’s for the pen).

Open the driver and tools. Turn off the lights close to the projector (the infrared interferes with the calibration). Right click on the pen icon in the dock, select calibrate normal. Hold the pen at an angle, rather than perpendicular to the board. Tap the circles as they appear.

 

For the 485 Epson projectors:

Plug in the vga/dongle cable to wall and laptop. Plug in the usb cord from wall (that’s for the pen).

Open the driver and tools. Turn off the lights close to the projector. Calibrate the pen from the remote. Select menu, extended, easy interactive function, manual calibration. Hold the pen at an angle, rather than perpendicular to the board. Tap the circles as they appear.

Tips:

-IF YOU ARE NOT SEEING YOUR DESKTOP IMAGE ON THE BOARD, DON’T FORGET TO MIRROR! Go to system preferences, display, arrangement and put a check in mirror display.

-The source for the projector displaying the computer is Computer 1.

-If you have a red x on the pen icon in the dock, the computer and projector may not be connected correctly. Make sure the projector is powered on and the usb cable is connected to your computer.
