    Would projecting 9' to a 6'x7' digital screen work?

      From 9' away, the largest image would be 49"H x 88"W, and the smallest would be 45"H x 80"W.

      Yes, I'm showing on a 10' screen with no problem. Shows a great picture at
      that size also.

  • Q:

    Does the HD142X use Passive or Active 3D technology---aka Passive (like more movie theaters use), or Active (requiring powered 3D glasses to sync with the projector).

    Thank you!

      Its Active 3D. I would recommend grabbing the RF glasses if you pick one
      up. That way you will have no line of site issues. Glasses last 30+
      hours on a charge too.

      It uses active 3D glasses. Most projectors do.

      Yes to keystone correction.
      Not sure about zoom - the farther away, the larger the picture. Mine is 12 ft and yields a beautiful 100 inch diagonal.

      It has keystone correction, and a small amount of optical zoom. It does not have lens shift, unfortunately.

      They do not, but I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to find some glasses that are compatible! I personally love my purchase and the resolution is amazing.
