As a newbie here, I first tried a series of searches, but could not come up with the information for my specific circumstances, so I would appreciate comments on my proposed set â€“up. I trust that this is the proper forum for the post. I apologize for the crude drawing in the attachment below, but itâ€™s really the only way that I can illustrate my question.
For the projector/screen combination that I plan to install (Sanyo PLV-60/96â€x54â€ Grayhawk 16:9), I wish to locate the projector as far back as possible to minimize fan noise while still maximizing the screen area for my room (54â€x 96â€). The PLV-60 has a power zoom that allows you to adjust the throw distance from 4.6â€™- 47â€™. The manual shows what is called â€œmaxâ€ and â€œminâ€ zoom specifications for different projector mounting distances. If I have computed everything correctly (my â€œCâ€ average in geometry may come into play here), I get the following dimensions:
Screen Dist. Diagonal Ht Wid
â€œMaxâ€ Zoom 196in 144in 70in 125in
â€œMinâ€ Zoom 196in 110in 54in 96in
My question is as follows; if I position the projector at the furthest extent (max. distance) of the minimum zoom will I be sacrificing any other important attribute (image quality, overscan capability, 4:3 or other aspect ratio performance)?
Other information includes:
L = 247in
W = 126in
H = 90in
Thanks in advance for any helpful advice
