Note on using the projector distance planning calculator and tips for projector installation:
Calculator accuracy +/-5%. The calculator is designed to help you plan your installation and find the right projector. It is not designed to provide exact dimensions. When calculating the throw distance, bear in mind that the distance is measured from the front of the lens to the projection surface, except for Ultra Short Throw projectors with a mirror system. Where possible, attempt to position the projector in the middle of the zoom range , which is where the optics is optimized for. Try to avoid the extreme outer boundaries as the projector lenses has variance and performance tolerances that could make the screen not being filled, or the image being larger than the screen, caused by small variances in the optical systems. If you need to be at the extreme outer boundaries, we recommend that you order the projector and test the actual distance in your environment before fixing any mounting parts to the wall or ceiling.
