I tried posting this a few minutes ago but I don't think it actually went.


I am installing a Sanyo PLC-XU38 projector in a large room. The screen is 200" diagonal with a 4:3 aspect ratio. I can't find information from Sanyo's manual or website to tell me how far above or below the top of the screen I should mount the projector (ceiling mount). The ceilings are 25' high so I have a lot of flexibility but sense I'm working so high up I want to make sure I have it right before I get up there.


1) How far should I put the projector above or below the screen? Is the distance measured from the bottom of the projector (i.e. the closest to the ceiling) or to the center of the lens or etc?


2) With regards to throw distance; from my calculations the distance from the screen is 15.1' at the max zoom and 18' at min zoom. I assume you don't want to be at the max or min zoom so should I mount it at 16'? All the online calculators say 15.1' but I think they assume max zoom.


I appreciate the help.
