How can I increase the throw distance for my projector? Right now it sits less than a screen length away and I find that too close, especially when playing video games. I tried to put a regular convex lens in front of the beam that comes out of the projector, but that just made the entire image impossibly blurry and unrecognizable. Does anyone have any experience in this area?

The best option is to contact your manufacturer to find out whether they have a long throw lens available for your model. Most manufacturers (e.g. Sony, Panasonic, InFocus, Epson, etc) seem to make these lenses for their particular projectors. Obviously the L300U and HS10 are well known for having both long and short throw lenses.


Good luck

the problem is that i built my projector, so i am the manufacturer :) however what I would like to do if incorporate an exterior lens perhaps right in front of the current lens. i want to do that rather than replace the existing lens entirely because it would be a big project.

Well, if the manufacturer cannot help... :)


Sounds interesting, do you have any links or pictures?
