How do I project using Epson iProjection?

Do the following:

  1. Enable Wi-Fi on your IOS device and connect to the projector. Alternatively, connect your iOS device to the projector using a compatible HDMI connector cable.

    • Infrastructure: Connect your projector to your wireless network; then, connect your iOS device to your wireless network (go to Settings > Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi Networks). Your device must be connected to the same network as the projector.

    • Ad hoc: Set an IP address on your projector via the EasyMP menu. This is a manually assigned IP address (not DHCP), e.g. 172.17.17.0. Then, connect your iOS device to the wireless projector in Settings > Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi Networks, tap Other, enter the IP address you assigned to the projector, and tap Find.


  2. Open Epson iProjection.

  3. Select your projector from the list of names.
    For an Ad hoc connection, tap Search by IP Address and enter the IP address.

    Ad hoc: Enter the IP address


  4. Tap Connect.


  5. Tap OK to connect to the projector.


  6. You will see a confirmation message when it successfully connects to the projector, tap OK to continue.


    Note:
    • You will only need to do this once per session. (You will need to repeat this step if you want to connect to a different projector or if you have previously force quit the app.)

    • If the connection is unsuccessful, check your network settings and make sure the projector is powered on.

    • To connect to a projector by specifying its IP address, select Other and enter the IP address.

    • You can disconnect from the projector by tapping Disconnect from the top-right corner.


  7. Choose either Photos or Documents.

  8. Tap the folder that contains the file you would like to project (or your 'Photos' library for PNG and JPG images), and then tap the file to select it.

  9. The file will be projected. If you have an iPad, you can access further display settings using the Settings button.

    Note:

    Tap OK if you are prompted to allow Epson iProjection to access location data. Otherwise, images may not be displayed.

    You will only need to do this once unless you change your application permissions for Location Services. For more information, see FAQ 'Why does the iProjection app prompt me to enable Location Services when I want to display a photo?' below.


  10. To project another file, browse the files and photos on your iOS device, and tap the file to project it.

How can I access the embedded remote control to change the input source, adjust the display and volume or control other functions?

  1. Tap in the top-left corner.

  2. Select Remote.

  3. You will now be able to access the control functions for your projector (the available source and control options may vary depending on your projector model).

Why does Epson iProjection prompt me to enable location data when I want to display a photo?

When you try to display photos, the EPSON iProjection app may prompt you to enable Location ‎Services. This is standard requirement of iOS as location data may be associated with your photos.

As a feature of the camera on your iPhone or iPad, every time you capture a photo, it will save GPS data to the file so that other applications (such as iPhoto) can show where the photo was taken. When you attempt to display the photo in Epson iProjection, both the photo and associated file data is accessed. However, Apple requires owners to authorise access to its location services. Tapping OK will permit Epson iProjection to access Location Services as needed and display your photos.

You should not be prompted to permit access to Location Services again, but you can check the permissions for iProjection and other apps in Settings > Location Services. To learn more about iOS location services, see Apple's Understanding Location Services support article.

Troubleshooting

PowerPoint or Keynote files are cut off (The aspect of projected image is not correct)?

Select Page Settings from the top right settings icon. Then select the correct page size settings for the document being projected.

There are no projectors on "Select Projector" screen

Please check the below:

  1. Check WIFI on your IOS device is turnned On.
  2. Check your IOS device is connected to the same network as the projector.
  3. Check Airplane Mode is OFF on your Android device.

I cannot select "Photos" when Epson iProjection connects to a projector?
