Hi, I was wondering if when mounting a projector from the ceiling are you allowed to angle the projector down to throw an image lower on the wall. I have a 12" soffit running around the room and want to mount the projector as high as possible for head room clearance. I know that most projectors have a lense shift option but what if I mount the projector up high and cannot shift the image low enough. Is it possible to angle, about 5 degrees down, to eliminate from projecting on to the soffit? How does this effect the keystone correction? Sorry for all the questions, but I am new to the game. Most likely the projector I am going with is the Sanyo PLV60HT. Any information you can help me with will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. John

Yes, of course you can do it. But it will results in some keystoning (which you may or may not be bothered with).


You can either: (1) Simply zoom up the image a bit and get the non-rectangular edges of the image out into the masked border of the screen; or (2) Use the digital keystone correction on the projector, which works but may results in a slight softening of the image.


Also, have you considered table/stand-mounting the projector upside-up instead?
