However, it's probably 60' (rough guess) away from the screen and the screen is around 8' x 12' or so (just an estimate).
Can anyone recommend something that can have such a small image from that far away? The cheaper the better as this is a start-up church with little to no budget.
Another option might be a short-throw front projector. To fill a 12' wide screen, the Optoma GT1080 would be just 6' in front of the screen, while the Benq 2150ST would need to be 8.4' in front of it. So if a stand that far in front of the screen would still be behind the pulpit or podium or whatever it might work. Those are both <$1000.
