But before we start, you should know this:

These setting are not only digital settings which are given by company. It also includes physical setting.

The physical settings are equally important as digital settings are. 

Now let’s start with physical settings first!

1.    Physical Settings

So, let’s start with some essential physical settings that are going to help you a lot.

Setting 1: Throw Ratio 

Lot of the times when you placed your projector far away from and thinking I placed it on right, maybe you have placed it on right place but, most of the times you placed it wrong. 

If you place your projector more than away from its throw ratio, it displays a blur picture.

Mainly throw ratio is the distance from which you have to place your optimal projector from the wall or projector screen

most of the time you don’t know how much far set Optoma projector, for this purpose i recommend you to read the user manual 

In the user manual there is only one figure that means you have to find it by your own self. 

To find the actual throw distance follow this simple math equation while using calculator.

Multiply your screen width with figure on user manual, from this you get the throw distance.

Let’s take an example:

  • Screen width: 65 
  • Manual figure: 1.5
  • Multiply both: 65*1.5 = 97.5 

97.5 inches from the screen, is the actual throw distance.

Situation: If in the user manual there is figure like 1.5-2.1 that means you can set your projector between   97-136 inches.

Now go and set your Optoma projector according to the above equation’s answer.

Setting 2: Your Placing Area 

Most of the time you can’t hang your projector with ceiling because most projector are designed for table. And some time table mount give you very tough times.

When you place your projector on soft surface or placed it on cloth, they start absorbing dust and they can’t allow heat to get out from projector.

When the dust starts togethering in projector it causes many problems, for example your projector starts flickering, the image get blur, and picture quality get down.

And when heat can’t get out from projector, they heat the whole projector which affect your Optoma projector lens and many other sensitive parts.

So, place your projector in a table where nothing is blocking the Optoma projector ventilation fan. 

Setting3: Projector Room Light 

If you buy a projector with less lumens and you are going to use it in heavily lit places or rooms then it’s your fault. 

Most of the projector can’t be designed to fight with heavy light, so place your projector in a dark room and convert your room into more darkness as you can, from this the picture quality gets better and you experience also.
