How to set up your new Premiere projector

Friends watching on Premiere projector screen

Have you ever wished you could have a movie theater in your own home? Well, now you can have a theater-like experience in your living room with the new Premiere. It projects 4K and HDR10+ video, giving you amazing image quality. You just need to make sure you set it up properly, so you get the image size and quality that you want.

Set up your projector

When you’ve picked a place to watch and project your movies, you can begin setting up your Premiere.

  1. 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.

  2. Connect the projector’s power cable to an outlet, and then turn it on by pressing the Power button at the rear of the projector.

  3. When you turn on the projector for the first time, it starts the initial setup. Using the remote, follow the instructions displayed and configure the projector's settings to suit your viewing environment.

  4. Adjust the projector’s angle by moving it left or right. Or, change the angle by adjusting the tilt-foot at the bottom of the projector.

  5. Move the projector forward or backward to adjust the projection distance for your desired display size. For information about the available display sizes and the corresponding distance, please refer to the next section.

How to find the best placement for your projector

If you've seen a projector in a classroom, you'll know that the projected image will increase or decrease in size depending on how close you place it to the wall. 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 Premiere model you have.

This diagram gives you a visual aid of how to set up your Premiere. The different letters represent the following:

  • A = The projector's distance from the wall.

  • B = The height of the display above the projector.

  • C = The size of the projection diagonally.
