This video explores Epson’s web control for the LightScene EV-100/ EV-105. The video shows a simple and easy step-by-step on how to access (which can be followed from a mobile device or computer), network setting, basic projector control, advanced projector control, select and edit a playlist, upload or delete data, on/off or check the time table and control OSD menu.
The Epson VS250 has a great design—it’s basically everything we want in a projector and looks good to boot. At 11.9 x 9.2 x 3.2 inches and 5.3 pounds, it’s a nice size, and if it had a higher resolution, we’d have no problem recommending it.
One of our favorite features is that the projector automatically adjusts its vertical keystone when you extend the kickstand. The stand is a little wobbly and made from plastic, but it can do the job.
In place of the vertical keystone adjustment you would find on most other projectors, there is a horizontal keystone right behind the focus dial. This is amazing because you don’t have to point the projector straight at your projection surface. You can put the projector off to the side and adjust the distortion with the keystone, making this projector much more versatile. For example, you could put it on your nightstand next to the bed and project movies onto your wall. The rear feet are also adjustable so that you can level the projector on any surface. It even has a standard tripod mounting option.
The lens is high quality and offers 3,200 lumens of brightness. We found the focus adjustment very smooth and accurate. Instead of a lens cap, the projector has a built-in cover that you can slide open to expose the lens, and when it’s closed it mutes both audio and video. We thought this is a great design—no more missing lens caps!
The fan and cooling system is very well-designed, quiet, and even has a removable dust filter. The single 2W mono speaker is located in the back of the projector alongside all the connectivity ports.

In some high-end installations, there may be better-than-average protection for audio-visual gear against mishaps. However, in most cases, there is an apparent risk that should always be considered and a “what-to-do” plan for when it does. When it comes to messes, a large projection screen surface is a hard target to miss. Fortunately, there is a process to clean most projector screen materials. Step 1 is to check your user guide, call the manufacturer or visit the manufacturer’s website to get their recommendation on cleaning your screen.
Some cleaning solvents may actually destroy your screen material or leave it permanently stained so it’s very important to know your “cans and cant’s” before starting. Here are the basic “dirty screen” complaints and what should be done about it.
Screen appears stained, streaked, or otherwise soiled – Check with the screen manufacturer on the proper cleaning process. It typically involves the use of a microfiber cloth and maybe a mild soap and water solution.

Here are five tips to start improving your system’s performance:
1. Choose your room well. Square rooms are not good for acoustics. Audio experts say you want to build your home theater in a room whose width is 1.6 times the height and the room length is 2.6 times the room height. You’ll also want to avoid hard surfaces that reflect sound waves. Carpeting your floor greatly helps your acoustics, and so does installing furniture.
2. Place your speakers carefully. All speakers should be at approximately head height when you’re sitting, facing your listening position. You want the front two speakers and the center-channel speaker to be about the same distance from your listening position, although you can raise your speaker levels to compensate if you can’t make that happen in your room (more on that later). Your surround speakers should be on either side of your listening position, and your rear surrounds (in a 7.1 system) should be behind your listening position on either side. You can place the subwoofer almost anywhere, because large bass sound waves can fill the room from any angle.
3. Calibrate your speaker levels. Most home theater receivers come with a microphone and a program for calibrating your speaker levels. These systems compensate for imperfect speaker placement and room size. They raise or lower the levels of the individual speakers to give you a balanced, immersive sound.

When Epson projectors are mounted on the ceiling, they are mounted upside down. This means that the operator must select the ceiling projection option on the projector, and do it with the remote control because the manual operation buttons will no longer be easily reachable.
- Attach the video cable from the projector to the monitor output port on the computer.
- Power on the computer and use the toggle key combination to send the video to the output port (usually “Fn-F9”).
- Press the power button on the remote control and wait for the power light to stop flashing and glow a steady green.
- Press the Menu button on the remote control to display the projector menu. Unless the projector has already been set for ceiling-mounted operation, the menu screen will appear upside down.
- Press the down arrow key on the remote until the “Extended” option is highlighted on the menu screen. Then press the Enter button on the remote.
