Recommendations please...

Hi, I'm in the process of doing some research on projectors and how much I need to spend to achieve what I want.
I'm hoping someone on here can give me some advice or suggestions.

I need to project a 4k animated presentation from 3m distance (preferably ceiling-mounted) onto a wall which is 8m wide 3m high approx.
The space will have subdued lighting (slightly darker than you see in the attached image).
The projector will be running for 8hrs a day, 7 days a week.
It does not need to be interactive or have 3D capability.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, forgot to mention; I need it to fill the wall as much as possible. So if I need extra lenses, etc. then that's fine...

The BenQ LK953ST can throw a 3.7 x 2.1M image from 3M.

You need a high output projector with a short throw and a laser or LED light source. Most Ultra Short Throw (UST) projectors are not designed to throw a very large image.

I would probably look at a large venue Epson LCD projector. With those, you can get high lumens and select a lens that works best for your situation. You can also get laser, if wanted. Look at the WUXGA with 4k enhancement. Though they are not native 4K, they will throw a nice image using the 4K enhancement. With these, you would not have to worry about anyone seeing RBE. Look at the models ending in NL. That is no lens. That way, you pick the lens that fits best for your situation.

You will get shadows if this is going to be an area where people walk in and out to view this unless the plan is they stand on the projector wall when viewing. Also in a public area I would be concerned about people looking into the laser or even lamp light source.
