Setup and Installation
Since the Qumi does not have adjustable feet or horizontal or vertical lens shift functions, the tripod setup option makes it much easier to get the proper height and lens angle in relation to your selected screen.
Next, plug in your source component(s). Turn on of the components on, then turn on the projector. The Vivitek Qumi will automatically search for the active input source.You can also access the source manually via the controls on the top of the projector or on the remote control
At this point, you will see the screen light up. To fit the image onto the screen properly, raise or lower the tripod or other mount that you are using for the Qumi. Also, since the projector has no Zoom function, you will have to move the projector forward or back in order display the desired size of the image on your screen or wall. You can also adjust the geometric shape of the image using the Keystone Correction function via the onscreen menu system.
