    Will this unit accept a Hitachi LL-503 Long-throw Lens? Church has 2 CP-X1250 projectors with this lens installed. Looking to replace the projectors, but thought maybe could reuse the lens. Thank you.

      I would need to know what size screen you have to determine the proper lens from 60' away.

      It can do 15 x 24 in 16:10 mode or 13.5 x 24 in 16:9. If you need 12ft high then you would do only 19ft wide.
