Im not sure I understand your question but sounds like your asking if the projector can be placed on a shelf up high instead of ceiling mounting it up sidedown.


I have not tried this myself but I want to say that yes there is enough play with the lens shift that you will be fine. Maybe someone else can jump in here.

I have my HT300 installed on a shelf behind the rear wall of my HT.

My mail did not arrive entirely.My excuses.

I want to place evt my HT300 on his feet in an 110" high

large and deep(20") bookshelf 208" from a 96" large 4:3 screen.

Does the lens shift works in the same way as with the Marantz?


Can I have a full screen (70"H/96"W with ZOOM) with a 4:3 source?

Can I the same effect (53"H/96"W) with a 16:9 source?



Thanks!

What you propose sounds reasonable given the throw distance of the HT300. The lens shift gives you quite a bit to play with and you can easily invert the image for upright positioning of the projector.

The lens shift of the ht300 will shift the image +/- 1/2 of the 16:9 image height. The image will not shift above or below the center of the lens.

Let me slightly correct your dimensions. A 4:3 source will be 96x72. A 16:9 source will be 96x54.


To achieve these sizes, the PJ should be mounted at 19.2' (230.4"). This is because to get the 96x72 4:3 image you must zoom to a 128x72 16:9 image. So you will be zooming from a 96x54 to a 128x72. The zoom range just barely covers this (no tolerances). So repeating, PJ at 19.2' you can get a 96x54 16:9 image & a 96x72 4:3 image.


At 17.3' (208"), the largest 16:9 image is 115.4x64.8 yielding a 86.8x64.8 4:3 image.


As always, check someone else's math before committing to final decision.
