Controlling a Presentation Using Hand Gestures

You can use the projector's Gesture Presenter feature to control a presentation using hand gestures. This lets you give presentations in front of the screen without using the remote control (EB-1781W/EB-1785W/EB-1795F/EB-2055/EB-2065/EB-2155W/EB-2165W/EB-2245U/EB-2250U/EB-2255U/EB-2265U).

The Gesture Presenter feature is available only under the following conditions:

  • The Gesture Presenter setting in the Settings menu is set to On.
  • The Projection setting in the Extended menu is set to Front or Front/Ceiling.
  • Projection angle is not more than 20º horizontally or vertically away from the center of the screen
  • If you are using a Screen Mirroring connection, you selected operation permissions that allow a connected device's keyboard or mouse to control the projector (Windows 10 only)
  1. Connect the projector to a computer using a cable or network connection.
  2. If you connected your computer to a port other than the projector's USB-B port, also connect a USB cable to the projector's USB-B port and to a USB port on your computer (for Gesture Presenter support).
