Replace my Panasonic PT-AX200U.


- HDMI, etc.
- high definition.
- throw size: 11' by 5.5" (144" diag in that configuration)
- originally purchased at Projector People
- audio 'out' as passthrough (is this a thing that exists)?

Bonus round: what's the best way to calibrate it (keystoning, position, color, etc.). In the past, I used an Avia disc.

How far away from the screen is the projector mount? How offset is it vertically? What is your budget?

You want something with lens shift if you need to offset the image, ideally. Keystoning distorts the image.

- budget up to 2k.
- Distance is negotiable and can be up to 21' .

I'd start here the IN5110 is a steal right now and a great little projector. We have hung many of them in local churches.

We have a BenQ HT1075. In your price range you can buy much more, but this is a very versatile, very good projector.

If you save the money on the projector, you can spend some of it on a color calibration system (spyder5) - most of them will work with both projectors and monitors...the projector will have a test screen for setting the geometric settings...
