Hi there! I am a little confused about the "Search by Feature" as well as the Calculator Pro pages, and want to make sure I'm interpreting this correctly.
I have a sort of specific use -- it is going to be used for a video in a museum exhibit. The space it will be going in is 12.5 feet from the wall being projected on, and we need the image size to be 68" wide. When I plug these two needs into the search by feature, the product I specified comes up. Then when I use the calculator pro and I set the picture width to 68", the throw distance says 10'2. The shaded blue area, though, spans from roughly 15' to 7'. Does this mean that i'll have to adjust the keystone in order to make the picture 68" at 12.5'?
My concern fueling this post is because I own a projector and when I adjusted the keystone, the remaining area that the projector is able to project to contains some residual light. The light is dark, but definitely visible. Not wanting this same issue here at work in the exhibit, I'm trying to avoid it as much as possible! I have attached an image to illustrate the residual light issue.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.

I'd like to hop on this thread. I'm looking for a projector that can handle a 28' throw distance, and produce an image with a 138" diagonal in a fairly dark room (living room at night).
The folks at projectorpeople.com suggested the Panasonic PT-AE8000U for $1700, but it just so happens that they're running a special on that machine right now, which kind of made me wonder... Especially as the Calculator at Projector Central doesn't give it good marks for the desired distance.
Could the Panasonic do it? Is it too much muscle? Not enough? Can anyone suggest some alternatives?
Many thanks for any guidance you can offer!

I've been transferring pictures to my Panasonic PT-AE8000 from my older Dell Laptop using Vista very successfully, but a new Dell M6800 using Windows 7 is giving me trouble. The option to Copy the monitor to the projector just doesn't work, though the Transfer from the monitor to the projector does. But the image it produces on-screen is reduced in width & height by about 8% so doesn't fill the screen, this plays havoc with 3D Side-by-side pictures which are perfect on the older Vista computer. All the screens are 1920x1080, so it's nothing to do with resolution. Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?

I just installed a SeymoureAV 130inch 2:35 screen in my living room.
Its 141 inch diagonal.
I'm about to order the PANA AT6000 (European version of AE8000)and I already prepared the connections on the opposite wall that is 20 feet distance from the screen.
I was wandering if I'm in the safe zone of not losing picture quality due to the long throw distance with this pj?
Should I move it a 4-5feet to the ceiling instead of the wall? or is it OK and the higher brightness will do the job?
It is a brick wall and ceiling so it is kind of hard to change the position now but I will do so If you guys say this is a must for not losing PQ.
Thanks in advance,

Just had this projector for less than a week. I'm noticing a glow around anything that is white or bright against a dark background - like lettering against a black background. I don't think I saw this the first few days. Could the lens or mirror be dirty or dusty already?
