What Systems are Accepted?

Please click here to see what systems are accepted and how each of them work. 

Input Cable Options

A projector requires a data source like a laptop or set top box in order to work, Ie you cannot plug a TV arial directly into the projector. In order to connect the projector to the set top box or laptop you can use the following inputs – 

 – HDMi

 – Component (D-sub 15 pin)

 – RCA (Yellow)

 – S-Video

 – USB-A

 – USB-B

 – VGA Computer 


The projector includes a speaker with a 1W output which is suitable for very small events. We recommend that you use an external audio source if your event has an audience of more than 2-3 people and we now have a range of speakers for hire.

Remote Control

Remote control’s are available upon request from Perth Projector Hire. Typically, we will provide a remote control when customers are using the data projector for a business Powerpoint presentation, which allows the presenter to scroll through slides easily (without having to stand in close proximity the laptop etc). Without access to to a remove, you can still adjust the picture quality/zoom etc. by using the ‘Menu’ buttons on top of the projector. Press ‘Menu’ and then use the buttons surrounding the ‘Enter’ button as arrows (up, down, left and right) to select the appropriate menu option. 

Packing Away the Projector After Use

Once you are finished using the projector, please complete the following steps to pack it away – 

1) Hold the ‘Power’ button to turn off the projector. 

2) Shut the screen covering the lens at the front of the projector

3) Turn the power off at the wall and un-plug the power cable from the wall

4) Un-plug the power cable from the back of the projector, fold it up and place it within the front pocket of your projector bag

5) Un-plug the input cable (HDMi, RCA, RGB, USB etc.), fold it up and place it within the front pocket of your projector bag

6) Place the projector into the bag, ensuring that the lens is facing up

7) Return your projector to Perth Projector Hire
