The LV-8300 connects to a variety of devices, including laptop and desktop computers, DVD players, digital cameras, camcorders, and VCRs. HDMI devices are connectable using an HDMI to DVI adapter*. Many desktop PCs cannot be connected to both a projector and monitor at the same time. The LV-8300's Monitor Out terminal allows for an external monitor to be connected to the projector- a practical feature in settings where the projector is hooked up to a desktop computer. In addition, the projector's network capabilities allow you to control projectors from a central location.
