Hello, we are doing a small theater production where we will be projecting onto holuguaze for some special effects. I'm looking for a short throw projector that can offer between 4000-7000 lumens. I've tried using the Find a Projector feature but it keeps giving out inconsistent results as far as the brightness and throw distance not matching.

Are there any that you could recommend that I start to look at? The screen is about 12 feet wide and 7 feet tall (16:9) ratio and we're hoping to rear project, or if we could get a short enough throw one have it sit right on stage in front of the hologuaze scrim.

Any help would be SOOOO appreciated.

Almost all the big brands offer a UST lens on their better projectors. Think a $5,000 lens and a $10,000 or so projector.

Panasonic, Epson, Christie Digital... They all make them.
