Hey Franklin. Here is a great article on presenting SDE's.

EventDV.net: The Event Videographer's Resource

As it suggests the Optoma TH1060 is really amazing for it's high lumens and great value.

Re: Best Projector

Frankin - I just started doing SDEs and use this
InFocus IN146 Short Throw Projector IN146 B&H Photo Video
It's a "short throw" projector so you don't need a lot of room between the projector and screen. I'm very happy with it.

Re: Best Projector

Bumping this thread up and wondering if anyone would have recommendations for a super bright + short throw projector.

I will be doing video presentations at a trade show and will require something that can project a bright image on a 8x8 screen at less than 10 feet. Since it the environment is also going to be bright, I'll need something over 3000 lumens by preference.

Please help!

Re: Best Projector

Thanks for the link Chris, but which model do you personally recommend?

None of the ones listed is a short-throw projector either...

Re: Best Projector

You need a projector with interchangeable lens, the ones being sold at BHP has fixed lenses. The projectors with interchangeable lens are expensive to buy. You can rent a 5K projector for $ 500 plus a .8 lens for $ 150 in Toronto.

Re: Best Projector

Why not a 52" led for the trade show... why not show your best quality to book weddings... I do tons of shows in NY and we are a very busy studio...
