You need to figure out where will you put your projector. It needs enough space for the projector itself and a space for the screen, or a white wall.

Don’t forget the cables, you need to save some space for all the cables. After you decide where to get the image shows, the next thing should be taken into consideration is where to install your projector. The projector can be hanged on ceiling with special hanger frame, or placed in the stable desk. Keep the projector at a height where its lens is axial symmetry to the screen. The recommended projection distance is about 10 ft, different model got different recommended distance, so it’s better read the manual first.

Some projectors don’t support wifi connection, you may need Anycast or Chromecast. When using the projector for the first, it normally displays an unclear image, this is due to the lens being out of focus or the incorrect trapezoid setting, you can follow the steps in manual to correct.
