Is my room too small for a projector



The maximum throw distance from wall to wall in my room is 3.5m. I would like to get a projecter that can give a massive 1080p image at 3m away.. Is that enough distance for projectors such as Panasonic PT-AE2000?

how large would you expect the largest image to be from this distance (and what projector could achieve this?)

Thanks for your help,


Moved to projectors :)

Looks like 84".

Most projectors will do this size and if youre getting a 1080p which costs minimum of about £800 (or thereabout), they will more than accomodate for that size.

Don't forget!

When measuring room size, remember that the throw is from the front of the lens to the screen. So, you need to take into account the 30cm/50cm depth of the projector. You'll also need to take into account how far your screen sits off the wall.

As an example, my lounge is 5m long, but my screen is hanging off the ceiling, c.30cm off the wall, and together with the depth of the projector it's only c.4.25m from lens to screen.

That's a pretty big difference, and may well affect how big you can go.

I have a room similar to your dimensions and get a 2m wide image from my
AE2000, so yes you can get a large image and for HD its not bad at all
