    Can you check my math’s please!!

    Ok I want a screen either 173 or 203cm wide, using a Sanyo PLV-Z3.

    173 wide screen = min projector throw from the screen of 242cm max throw from screen 311cm

    203 wide screen = 284cm and 365cm throw.

    I’m correct at saying these are the maximum extremities that the projector can be too-or from the screen its self???

    If they are then I am going to have to go for the larger screen because I have a light fitting on the ceiling in the way otherwise.

    But would a 203cm wide screen at the seating distance of approximately 330cm be too big?

    Help before I order the wrong thing! Thanks in advance John

    (now better find my cammera so i can show before and after pics!)

    The best way to decide your screen size would be to install your projector and project the image onto the wall. The select a screen size for an image that works best.

    The beauty of a projector is the image size, so aim to reproduce the maximum size image you can. If the seating position is around 1.5 x the width of the screen, you should be OK. Too close and the picture artifacts, screen door effect etc. become visible.

    thats a good idea really, simple but i completely didnt think of just ordering the screen after i have the projector - i guess i just want to rush in and have it all NOW!
    I guess from what you have said though @ 1.5X seating will be ok at 330cm and the screen width of 203. Has anyone else got a similar size pics i could look at, cheers.
    So excited - boys and there toys.
    I hope it all live up to expectation!
