Set up your projector
1 When you’ve picked a place to watch and project your movies, you can begin setting up The Premiere. Place the projector at an appropriate distance from the wall it will project onto. Make sure the projector is sitting horizontally on a flat surface to prevent it from tilting or tipping over.

This applies to The Premiere projector as well. Below we have a comprehensive guide for getting the correct image size for your setup. The placement will be a little different depending on which The Premiere model you have (SP-LSP7TFA or SP-LSP9TFA).
