Default Maximum throw


What happens when you exceed the maximum throw of a projector? Does it
result in an out of focus image or simply a larger image? (or some
other problem?)

I've got 23 feet between my bookshelf and projection wall and am trying
to decide if I have to go with a pull down screen or ceiling mount to
put the projector (Panasonic PT-AE900U) at 20 feet.

Ideally, I could use both the bookshelf and the wall.

Thanks

Tom

The image just gets larger and dimmer. Shine a flashlight on the wall
from 3 feet and observe. Now shine it on the wall from 20 feet. The
projector behaves just like the flashlight.
