So, are you saying that with a screen that is 100" wide, the Panasonic could be used 110" away and still fill the screen?
Um, no. I wasn't making any specific, accurate claims about throw distance for a given screen size, except by a hypothetical example.
All I was trying to say, and sorry for the confusion, is that:
Whatever the MINIMUM distance at which ANY GIVEN screen size IS illuminated, you can DOUBLE that distance via the zoom, is what I'm saying. If the specs listed so prematurely about the AX100 are correct; this is about what they were on the 900, if I remember correctly. So you DO have a relatively great range within which you can physically place the PJ in your room, when you have such a large zoom range, as this new one supposedly does.
If I remember correctly, to fill a 100" screen on the Panny 900, you needed (aproximately!) at least 10 feet, minimum. But, you could go to a maximum of (aproximately) 20 feet...so, the throw ranges from 1:1 to 1:2.
Hope this clears things up! (And, ugh, moreso: that I got it right!)
