USB Cable Needed

You will have to have the proper USB (male to male) cable plugged into your A/V Wall plate to have this interactivity.  Please see the Tech Office if you need one.

You may already have interactive software on your computer, or you may need to install it.

On Windows PC, you only need Easy Interactive Tools (or other interactive software).

Here’s how to find out if the Easy Interactive Tools software is installed on your computer: Mac: Look for the Easy Interactive Driver and Easy Interactive Tools folders in the Application folder on your hard drive. If you see these folders, the Easy Interactive software is installed. Windows 10: Search > EPSON Projector > Easy Interactive Tools.
