How to connect iPhone 7 Beamer VGA Projector

Like the existing iPhone and iPod touch, the iPad can output video via the same composite or component video cables to present standard definition, analog video with roughly 480 lines of resolution.  connect iPhone 7 Beamer VGA Projector!!!

The iPad’s new VGA-connector option delivers PC style video at the device’s native 1024×768 resolution. Existing iPhone and iPod models won’t work with the new VGA cable, as they aren’t designed to support higher resolution outputs than they can display.

The iPad gets the new VGA output option primarily to support video projectors, which will allow business users to present Keynote presentations directly from the device.

Connecting to the Classroom Projection System

  1. Cables are located in the pocket of the instructor’s podium. Connect the VGA, or HDMI (where available), cable to
    the device. To connect to the classroom projection system, you may need an adapter. The type of adapter required
    varies by device model and age (see next page on adapters). OCM supplies a Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter in
    rooms where HDMI is available; otherwise a Mini DisplayPort-to-VGA adapter is supplied. If your device does not have
    a Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt, port you must provide your own adapter.
  2. Connect the audio cord, if using the VGA connection, to the headphone jack of your device (not the microphone
    jack) to have audio projected through the system speakers. Please note that the audio cord is not for use with HDMI.
  3. Press the “Laptop” source button on the control panel. When the button stops blinking, start the device.
  4. When using the HDMI connection with a Mac, you may need to adjust your sound settings for the Mac’s audio to
    come through the classroom speaker system. Go to your Mac’s System Preferences, select “Sound”, select the
    “Output” tab, and select the HDMI source.

Guide to Mac Adapters

  • Some Apple Macintosh devices and all iPads/iPhones require an adapter to connect to the standard VGA and
    HDMI cables in general purpose classrooms. Any model with an HDMI output can connect directly to the HDMI
    input where available.
  • All recent (manufactured after October, 2008) and currently shipping Mac laptops have a Mini DisplayPort (aka
    “Thunderbolt”) connection that is compatible with the HDMI or VGA to Mini DisplayPort adapters supplied in
    classrooms. The Macbook Pro with Retina Display models (13 and 15 inches) also have HDMI ports. If you are using
    one of these models in a room equipped with HDMI, you will not need to use an adapter.

    • IMPORTANT: The following Apple laptop models do not support audio when connected to an HDMI adapter:
      MacBook (Late 2009), MacBook (13-inch Aluminum Late 2008), MacBook Pro (late 2008), (Mid 2009),
      and (Early 2009). To project audio with these laptop models, use the audio cable and VGA connection at
      the instructor station (you will need to supply the VGA adapter for your model).
    • Apple models older than 2008 may or may not display using VGA in classrooms that have been upgraded
      to HDMI. In these select cases, the video image may or may not display via HDMI using your DVI-to-HDMI
      adapter. The adapter will not support audio. If audio is required, you must supply a more current model.
  • When troubleshooting, be aware that adapters do sometimes malfunction or wear out. Consider adapter replacement
    as part of your troubleshooting options.

Video mirroring makes it possible to share what’s on your iPad on a bigger screen, such as a large screen TV or HD projection screen for presentations and conferences etc. Or you could use an educational iPad app to teach an entire classroom via a larger screen.

iPad 1 and iPad 2:

iPad 2 features the ability to fully mirror whatever is on your iPad screen onto an external display device. For all other devices, only video-enabled apps (like YouTube, Netflix, or stored videos), music, and photos can be displayed on your TV.

iPad 1 – When the cable is connected to a TV or projector, an application that supports playing video to an external display will automatically use it when playing video. Of the built-in applications, Videos, Photos, and YouTube support external video display.

The original iPad, (Wi-Fi) and iPad (Wi-Fi/3G/A-GPS), can be connected to a television or projector to display photo slide-shows or video by using an Apple Composite AV Cable, Apple Component AV Cable, or the iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter.

iPad 2 – iPad 2 models support full video mirroring of all applications as well as the operating system.

The iPad 2 (Wi-Fi), iPad 2 (Wi-Fi/GSM/A-GPS), and iPad 2 (Wi-Fi/CDMA/A-GPS), support earlier adapters as well as the new HDMI-equipped “Apple Digital AV Adapter.” The Apple Digital AV Adapter is compatible with the original iPad models as well.

Screen Resolutions:

The original iPad and iPad 2 models support 480i and 576i via the composite adapter and 480p and 576p via the component adapter. iPad 2 models also add support for up to 1080p video out via the VGA adapter or the new HDMI-equipped Apple Digital AV Adapter.

Both the original iPad and the iPad 2 are capable of mirroring the internal display at 1024×768 via VGA or HDMI.

iPad to TV Settings:

To set up your iPad video options on the iPad.

Go to Videos – Video Settings from the settings icon on the main screen.

There are three settings: TV Out, TV Signal and Widescreen. If you live in the US or Canada your TV Signal is NTSC. If you’re outside the US or Canada the setting may be PAL. Adjust the selections to give the video playback options you need.
