Optoma PK301 Mini Projector connectivity


There are few accessories you should consider buying as soon as you get your PK301. First 2 accessories that are usually bought together with Optoma PK301 are remote controller and a tripod.

Remote does not require explanation – it is great for convenient control of your projector. I believe it should be included with the projector as using PK301 without a remote can be quite awkward.

A tripod is required for precise positioning and improved cooling. If you set up PK301 on flat surface it may overheat during prolonged use, so it is suggested to use a tripod to elevate the device. These tripods can also be used with digital cameras.
