Throw Distance Calculator

Did projector central change their projector throw calculator? I am getting a Epson 6020 next week and it showed I could throw a 120" screen at under 12' but would be "too bright". Now it says I cant throw a 120" screen under 13.7'

Turns out there is a calculator classic and calculator pro. Google kept taking me to the classic which shows a different throw distance than the pro. Thank you @PioManiac for showing me i wasnt losing my mind.

nope,
works the same for both

Classic:



If you got a max range of ~13' , you probably had the screen width at 120" instead of diagonal
