I need advice on buying a video projector (first time projecting)
I work in a play and we want to project archival videos on a screen in the background but also do a little mapping on screens on the sides of the stage.
The idea is to hang the projector at the top (about 3m50 / 4m) just in front of the stage.
For budget reasons we would like 1 projector of between 4000 and 6000 lumens maximum.
Our projection surfaces are located at the back (6 m from the video projector) and on the sides (between 2m50 and 5 m from the video projector).
The big question is: with a very short focal length, will I achieve a width of 6m (or 5m minimum) with 2m50 behind? and also, will the quality of the image projected at a distance of 6 m be significantly degraded?
I am attaching you a small diagram to make it clearer!
Thank you very much!
