Another projector question;

I haven't come across this in my readings yet but if I am able to choose the distance of my projector mount from my screen and I have the choice of 150" to 191", where will I get the best bang for the buck?

Thanks!

Using the projection calculator, you can find the range available to you. I typically go about 1/4 of the way back from the closest setting. So, if your range was 100" to 140" I would shoot for 110" from the lens to the screen.

All throw distances should be measured from the lens to the screen.

Thats what I was looking for, I have/had plans to be at the rear of that perameter but I'm at a point where I can change that distance.

Thank you!
