AE100 - making the image smaller


Distinguished Member
Have a make shift screen installed and the projector on a shelf at rear of the room

However restrictions have meant that even when I turn the lens zoom all the way down the image is still slightly too big

Its nothing major but it would be nice to have it that little bit smaller to make viewing more comfortable

Is there any way to do this without moving the PJ closer to the screen ?

Also, where can I get the cieling bracket from and how easy is it to install ?

I just wandered if there was any menu options on the PJ that would make the screen that little bit smaller.

Ill have to bring the screen that little bit closer


Hi Duncan,

No, there are no options to make the image smaller other than the optical zoom lens (which you have already adjusted).

No projectors would have the feature you mention as it would waste loads of pixels.

The only options you have are

1) move the projector nearer the screen
2) move the screen nearer the projector
3) buy a projector with a longer throw.

Ill do a combo of both I think

Its not miles too big, just a little uncomfortable

I think you could use theatertek to zoom out from the screen a bit. You can map the image into the middle of the screen and surround it with a black border ( not done this myself but pretty sure you could do it I'll have a look) Course this will entail a loss of resolution so its not ideal.
