    Hi, I'm doing an art project where I'm using a projector as a light source through pretty thick transparent fabric. I've read up on the terms and think I know what I need, also looked at projectorcentral but thought I'd ask here since you guys might know more or have good tips :)

    It seems 2000 lumens are enough to shine properly through the fabric and the way the material diffuses the light makes resolution a non-issue, 420p would be sufficient. Noise levels also doesn't matter, but I need a pretty short throw distance of 0.5 or less as the space is very crammed.

    TL;DR, I'm looking for a >2000 lumen, low resolution (picture quality doesn't matter), >0.5 throw projector, preferably as cheap as possible. Any tips for models to look for in the second hand markets?

    If you're not projecting an image I don't think the throw distance will matter, it'll purely be whether it's bright enough for what you need.
