I'm looking for a good HD short throw projector. I only have about 12ft from the front of the projector to the screen. I haven't been able to find some source that filters by short throw. Any ideas?

Thanks

Panasonic AE700 can get a 100" screen from anywhere from 10-20 feet. How much bigger are you needing.

From 12', you can get about 108" from the BenQ PB6200 if you want 4:3 AR.

when i looked the sanyo z3 and the ae700u could both get 120" screens when zoomed all the way out from 12'. of course both are said to be better with SDE than older projectors but i would still worry about making the screen too big when sitting that close.
