    Hi All,

    Have a question that maybe is silly and at least will give you a good laugh. I'm setting up a front projector system in the basement. Because of the layout the projector could be placed at any point on the ceiling to get the size screen we're looking for (10-12').

    The question is am I better placing the projector as far back as possible to get the image size, or am I better off placing it closer to the screen and using the zoom to enlarge to the screen size, or does it not matter at all being six of one hal dozen of another.

    Logically it seems like it shouldn't matter, but, that's why I'm asking those who know more than me.

    Thanks

    I would put it in the middle of the throw range. That gives you a little leeway if you need to use the zoom.
