Minimum hardware requirements

Hardware requirements are 3D content specific; please refer to your 3D content provider for more details.

Only Quad core graphics cards can be used with the PRM-32, PRM-35 and EST-P1 projectors. We recommend using any graphics card from the NVIDIA Quadro range.

If you are unsure whether your device is capable of outputting 3D, please check with your device’s manufacturer.

NB: your computer must be connected to the projector to perform these steps.
