At the Kamloops Film Society, we strive to provide an optimal viewing experience for our audience. However, we have encountered challenges in connecting Apple products and adapters to our projectors, particularly when showcasing movies or video games.

To ensure seamless presentations, we recommend avoiding the use of Apple products and adapters. Instead, we advise using Microsoft products or HDMI to HDMI connections for the best compatibility with our projection systems.
