Not as far as a 1080p Short Throw is concerned.
The w1070 is getting a tremendous following....I see it being chosen as the desired PJ on this Forum so often, it's almost like the Epson 8350 allover again.
But in your instance, your Screen size / Throw distance requirements limit you to that PJ.
Really. And your fortunate as the only other Short Throws out there in WideScreen are just gussied up Presentation PJs of 1280 x 800 resolution. This time last year they would have been your ONLY choice.
All that is left is for you to go the selected route, or change your Throw distance and/or Screen size to accommodate the 8350.
Now as far as the printed color, partly it's going to be a Crap shoot, but you should be able to get close enough that it shouldn't be any real issue. The Density of the printed coating (dpi) will make a difference, as will the opacity of whatever ink is used. A simple color would be a Neutral Gray of a 8.8 / 9.0 shade.
What type of Ink material does the LF printer use? Oil? Acrylic Water based?
I'd say it's worth a shot. Some time ago there was interest in trying to match Silver Fire's color and print it on a Plastic Mirror, but it never went forward.
