The PowerLite 97H is supplied with a fairly compact remote control measuring approximately 5.6 x 1.8 x 1.0 inches. The remote is neither backlighted nor glow-in-the-dark, making it somewhat difficult to operate in a darken room, but this is not an issue with typical classroom lighting.
The group of buttons toward the top of the remote include the power on/off button and buttons for input source selection.
Below that is a numeric keypad with three of those buttons doing double duty for: (1) "MHL Menu" (displays menu for MHL settings), (2) “Auto” (automatically adjusts position, tracking a sync settings for analog input signals), (3) “Aspect” ratio, and (4) “Color Mode”.
Below the numeric keypad are the buttons to display and navigate the projector’s menus. Also there is a “Pointer” button which displays an on-screen pointer that can be moved using the navigation buttons.
Below the navigation buttons are pairs of keys to (1) “Page” thru the photos/presentation images, (2) electronic “Zoom” (i.e., to enlarge a portion of the image), and (3) a “Volume” control.
Finally at the bottom of the remote there are three buttons for: (1) “A/V Mute” which turns off the picture and sound and places the projector in a lower power mode, (2) "Split" to active split screen mode, (3) “Freeze” which freezes the current image being displayed, and (4) “Help” which displays help information for the projector.
