Re-badging or "badge engineering" happens allot. I am almost willing to bet they are the same lens.
I looked up the throw ratio tables and it seems that they quote things off the 2.35 screen width for some reason. It ranges from 1.2 to 1.76. Converting that to 16:9 screen width ratios I get 1.6 to 2.34. It seems the range is a function of chip size, smaller chips can be at the 1.6 whereas the 1" chip would be at 2.34.
A DLP with a 0.9" chip would require the longer throw.
I have not bought the projector as yet. So if you were to match a projector to this lens, what would you look for? Currently I'm considering the Infocus SP8602, Vivitek H5080 or Digital Projection M-Vision 260 HC.
Just make sure it scales for both VS and HS and has decent calibration settings.
