Selecting a source

The Source selection menu allows to select one of the different sources. Another method to select an input source is via the remote control using the numeric keys or by using the local keypad.

When selecting a source with a different resolution (and/or aspect ratio) than the projector’s resolution (and/or aspect ratio ), the source can be shown in its native resolution or can be re-scaledto the projector’s resolution, the latter case brings of course some loss of quality.

For more info on resolution match see the Show native resolution function in the Image menu.
