Short throw project for 135 inch screen.


Novice Member
Hey all you AV geeks!

Long time watcher, first time post and experienced AV man myself.

I have 3 YAMAHA RX2040 series receivers throughout my house driving multiple rooms.

I am looking for a short throw project that can support a 135 inch outdoor rear projector screen. For context this is what I am installing outside:

Elitescreens Yard Master Electric

All of the calculators out there only go up to 120 inch screens. Which mean most short throws are about 4 feet back. So 2 questions:

1. Does anyone know of a short throw that support 135 inch projector screens?
2. If not can I just move the distanct back on the ones I found that support 120 inches? If so what is the easiest way to calculate that?

Background on project:

I am putting in a pool and will have an outdoor entertainment system outside:

Yamaha RX-A2040 (with dual HDMI out)
HDMI over Ethernet to Projector (would love recommendation here)
Elitescreens Yard Master Electric (want to do 135 inch but may have to go down to 120 inch)
Optoma GT1080HDR Short Throw Gaming Projector
6 x outdoor speakers (still looking at options for these)

Again any thoughts on a project for outdoors (so high Lumens) but can support a 135 inch screen?
