Looking for help to find the right screen size and projector to my 14/14 feet room with seat location of 13.5 feet and projector location is going to be exactly 13 feet.
I am looking at UHD60 projector and screen size as 135 inches (looking for bigger screen ). Tried online calculator but still I don't get it(https://www.projectorcentral.com/Optoma-UHD60-projection-calculator-pro.htm)
Can you please help me if UHD60 projector works for 135 inch screen size or do you recommend any other projector for that screen size or vice versa (any other screen size for that UHD 60 projector for that room size).
Key elements again:
Projector distance: 13 feet max , Screen size: 135 inch diagonal (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0751V75ZW/ref=emc_b_5_t) and seat distance : 13 to 13.5 feet

Thanks in advance!

So, the UHD60 is 13 inches deep. With a few inches off the back of the projector to the wall for ventilation, you will only have about 12.5' from lens to screen as your throw distance.

From 12.5' the UHD60 can throw an image diagonal between 77" and 124". That means you are going to get about a 120" diagonal at the largest from that projector with the room size you have.

There are only a few projectors which can hit a 135" diagonal with 12.5' of actual throw distance.

Here is that list...

From that list, the UHD51ALV is a strongly recommended model.
