Data Projectors

Steps to connect to the data projectors

Connect the VGA Cable

   Both ends of a VGA cable are the same.  VGA cable is also known as a 15 pin male to male
   monitor replacement cable



DVI to VGA Adapter   If you are connecting the data projector to a Mac computer, you will need to use an
  adapter to connect the VGA cable to your computer




There are different makes and models of projectors. The VGA input may be located and labeled differently on different models. The followings are examples for the location of the VGA input on the projectors.

Connect VGA cable to "computer/component video" port on  back of projector

Connect one end to the port labeled “Computer In 1” or “Computer In 2” on the back of the Data Projector.





The other end of the VGA cable connects to your laptop. Where it connects will depend on the laptop.  It will be the same port you would use to connect your laptop to an external monitor.
