What would be the optimal mounting distance for an AE4000, flush mounted (8ft ceiling), projecting onto a 120" 16:9? The screen is 59 x 108, the top is about 4" from the ceiling.

Panasonic's guide suggests between ~12ft and 24ft. The room is 24ft long.

Thanks!

Thanks, this is good to know. I'm looking at this projector and a 125" scope screen. Their formula comes out to 12 feet 11.4 inches. I should be able to do this distance, but always like a little wiggle room (at 13', I would have 1 foot between the back of the projector and the rear wall) and my goal is to set it at 13' 2-3", but the +/- 5% disclaimer on the formula was scaring me a little.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having read it.
