I'm confused about the throw ratio. http://panasonic.net/avc/projector/products/ae8000/positions.html
shows the ability to display a much wider 2.35:1 image at the same throw distance as a standard 16:9 image. I'll have a
throw of 13 ft but I can't seem to determine the maximum size 2.35:1 screen (will use the lens memory function to display 16:9 on the 2.35:1 screen).
Chart shows it can throw a 150" diagonal 2.35:1 image from 11'9" on a 2.35:1 screen if using the lens memory function for a 2.35:1 screen
Chart shows only 120" image if projecting a 16:9 from 11'9" onto a 16:9 screen
If this is correct, I have a boxed up 148" 2.35:1 Dalite HP (orignal higher gain version 58" x 1361⁄2" ) screen. Max throw for me is slightly over 13'. One row of seats at 13' viewing distance.
