The Apple iMac has emerged as an excellent choice for business users. In particular, the Mac’s reputation in the areas of media production, graphics and software development leads to the desire for the biggest monitor available. The iMac, like most computers, has the capability to connect with an external monitor. Nowadays, most newer televisions come with multiple HDMI connections, and many also have a PC/DVI port, which makes for easy connection with your iMac.
- Plan how to connect your iMac to your Panasonic plasma TV based on the connection ports available. If your iMac has an HDMI port, use an HDMI cable to connect to your TV. If your iMac and TV have DVI ports, a connection can be made with a DVI cable. There may be situations which your iMac may have a DVI port and your TV may only have HDMI ports. For that scenario, a simple DVI-to-HDMI cable or adapter should do the trick.
- Connect the necessary cable from the computer to the TV. Turn on the TV and iMac.
- Use the TV remote to select the appropriate input. If you’ve connected DVI to DVI, the input selection may be labeled “PC.” If you’ve connection DVI to HDMI, then select the appropriate HDMI input . Adjust your TV settings if the picture needs to be adapted to the large screen.
