Need a loooong throw projector


Active Member
I'm looking for a decent max £2500 LCD or DLP projector that would have a longer than usual throw. The projector to screen distance would be in the league of 6.5 to 6.7 m (I think it's something like 21 ft?). Due to practical reasons the image should be only about 1.5 to 1.7 m in width.

I used the projectorcentral calculator but it seems, that most projectors that I'd be interested in, project at that distance an image at least 10 ft wide, which is waaayyyy too much for my living room.

Any ideas what to look for? Any particular projector? Some lense system?

First the good news: it seems that I could use the Sanyo PLV-60 with a special lense called LNS-T31. (And similarly LNS-T31A for PLV-70)

The bad news is that LNS-T31 costs something like $2000! It's also quite a cannon ;) :
