JVC DLA-RS1 and Sharp XV-Z20000: Room Placement Flexibility
The first place where they differ greatly, is in placement ability. And the differences are not only distance from the srcreen, but also height.
Let’s start with distance. The Sharp has a zoom lens with a very limited 1.35:1 range. Translated, that means the furthest it can be placed from a given sized screen, will be 35% further away, than the closest it can be. The JVC RS1, by comparison has a 2:1 zoom, so the projector can be twice as far back, as its closest position.
[Note: When discussing distances, those distances are always measured from the front of the lens to the screen. For discussion purposes distances will be based on filling a 100 inch, diagonal, 16:9 aspect ratio screen.]
