    Having ordered a pt ae 100 without thinking about where it will go. I was wondering if the keystone correction could cope with the projector being around 4 ft below the middle of the screen from about 10 ft away.

    Mr Brush,
    The more keystone correction you use the worse it will be for image quality. You must try and use the least amount possible.

    if understand the keystone correction on the panasonic, you will definitely need some to have it this way.

    think you need to have the pj 10cm/3.5" below the bottom or 10cm above the top of the screen... since you are talking about 4ft below the middle of the screen then on a 7-8ft screen thats 2ft+ below the bottom of the screen.

    be far simpler to get extra drop on whatever screen you are going to use.

    it is not possible to drop the screen any further due to a rear projection tv being in the way.
    because of this and the kind advice i have been given i will be going for a home made ceiling mount.

    thanks for taking the time to reply
