If the width is 3m the screen size is ~135" diagonal.
From 4.7m the throw ratio required is ~1.56x.
There are a few options here, depending on:
If there is gaming. If so, what genre?
Color of walls.
Type of screen fabric.
If the room is treated for reflections a projector with good black levels can be had, like the TW9400. More expensive with better picture quality are available.
Treating the room will benefit any projector:
If the room is not treat then there are more options:
TW7400 - same as TW9400 but with poorer blacks and contrast. It has a 10GB HDMI, which means up to 4K HDR 30Hz. To reach 60Hz for gaming and some streaming services, the bit depth must be dropped to 8bit from 10. Can be done with a PC/Shield, HDFury Linker, or other box/external device.
Epson HC3800: brighter than the TW7400, but the TW7400 has better picture quality. 18GB HDMI.
Optoma UHD52ALV/UHD370x/UHD380x. These have a throw ratio of up to 1.59x, so you should measure the distance exactly to make sure you're withing specs. Similar in brightness to the TW7400. 18GB HDMI.
The distance should be lens to screen.
The Epsons have mid 20ms lag, the Optomas have 60-80ms lag.
Epsons have dynamic iris, for better black level.
Optoma are sharper.
If you're going to use the same mount, check what weight it's rated for since the TW7400 / 9400 is ~13kg.
