    Hello forum,

    I need help finding a very small projector able to project a clear image from 35 cm distance. The image will be round and no larger than 15 cm in diameter. It's for an art piece. In my mind there'd be several options on the cheaper end of the spectrum (budget allows for $200 max), but I thought it best to throw out the question among the knowledgeable before making a choice.

    Best wishes

    Do you have a diagram of what you are planning and some indication of ambient light levels.

    the projector will be mounted inside an old military radar. I will empty it from it's components and place the projetor at the bottom, throwing up onto the radar screen. It will be rear projected as well. Forgot that in my initial question.

    I can dim the lights in the space and I have alot of different lighting choices.

    The footage I'm using is very abstract and low quality (military research footage of herring in a watertank, don't ask :), it's basically just black dots moving on a red surface.

    Hey Joe,

    yeah, me and the production team are looking in to it. But, I'd rather go for an out of the box solution to save time experimentation. But, we might end up there.
