Hello Big Screen Forum,
Thank you for considering my post.
I am in search of a home theater projector that can be 14' away from the screen and project onto a screen width of 69"
Somehow the projection calculator on this site offers up a bunch of projectors that when I look closely do not have this capability.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

That's a long way to throw for a very small screen size. With a 69" width, that's only about a 80" diagonal 16:9 screen size.

My first recommendation would be to consider a 80" television instead. It is more versatile and more in line with typical setups.

That said, if you do need a projector which will work from that distance for that small of a screen, then the Epson 4010 will do it well as would the Epson 5050UB.

They can throw a 79" diagonal from 7'9" to 16'4" lens to screen.

Thanks for the response. I should have mentioned, this is a electronic roll down screen that comes out of some built ins. When down, divides a dining room and front room, so a TV is not an option but I can see why otherwise it would make sense. I'll check out the models suggested.
Best, NBW
