Not sure what you mean. My D-ILA is 18' ft from the screen and could easily be 16' but the maximum size of the image will be different. You'll have to mention the size of the image you want to get a proper answer.
I'm trying to project a 106 diagonal. My projector needs to go back 16 feet for installation. Otherwise, it will have to be cumbersomely floor mounted, and no doubt in the way. Any options are fine at this point.
Virtually every projector can be 16 feet from the screen and produce an in-focus image at that distance. The issue will be the size of the picture, which of course relates to the focal length of the lens (or, for a zoom lens, the focal length range).
They have a database that includes information about image sizes at various distances and zoom lens settings. You can readily compute from this information what the size of the image (or range) will be at the distance of, say, 16 feet.
The sharp XV-Z9000U fits the bill you can have anything from 92" diag to 106" diag screen with 16 feet of throw. I have it at 14' on a 92" diag and it works great, it has a zoom lens that covers a pretty wide range.
