What better way to appreciate your favorite films, videos, and images than on a larger scale with quality audio and sound? The best way to gather this experience is by setting up a home theater and for that, you need a short-throw projector. A short throw projector is a projector that is mounted very close to the wall or any other sort of screen (the average distance is between 3 to 8 feet). Even though the distance is small they are able to produce clean and crisp images because of a good quality lens and a chipset that uses geometry correction to warp the image before it passes through the lens. 

The teaching industry is one of the biggest buyers of the short throw projector industry. Because of its features, it is placed closer to the screen making it easy for teachers to walk through the class while teaching without interrupting the visuals. Mostly they are easy to set up and that makes the entire process of installation cost-free. It does not need any other professional to connect it to external devices as most of them have Bluetooth and WiFi features and HDMI outlets. 

Other place and industries which need a short-throw projector are corporate offices for meetings and presentations and maybe bars, banquet halls, and restaurants for game screenings or slideshows and videos for private events like birthdays, weddings, etc. they are also a great addition to family events are movie nights inside the house or for watching films during a picnic or camping. It is a great bonding activity for families and friends that every individual should try at least once in their lifetime.


The short-throw projectors are placed closer to the screen (just like the name suggests) for projecting good quality videos and images, but normal throw projectors on the other hand have to be placed at a considerable distance from the screen.

While to produce a 100” image a short-throw projector is placed around 5 feet from the screen, a normal throw projector is normally placed around 10-15 feet away from the screen. This placement difference is observed because of different lens quality and chipset.

If you can afford it, it is better to purchase a short throw projector because of the following advantages:

  • Since most of them are remote-controlled and it is placed closer to the screen you do not need a longer cable. A short one does the job just fine.
  • The position of the projector closer to the screen prevents it from casting any form of shadow on the floor or screen.
  • They produce less sound and heat from the fan inside of the short throw projector. 


With the plethora of short-throw projectors available in the market making a decision about which one to pick is a very complicated one. Even with the products laid out in a list the only way for you to compare them would be if you understand how they work. To help you understand some basic indispensable features here is a list:

Display resolution 

This is a very important feature or you can say the most important feature of a short-throw projector. Though it might not be as clear as a flat screen, its high resolution determines the clarity of an image or scene, so keep an eye out for that.


Short projectors are used to create a well-demanded event at any outing or picnic. With high brightness, you can ensure that they are very well visible with daylight or without any solid-colored white or black background. It saves you from the additional cost of the screen.

Contrast Ratio

This is another feature that ensures a good quality video or a movie. It makes sure your images are not muddled at all and prevents the screen from looking bland. It ensures well-improved picture quality so try to purchase one whose contrast ratio is well above ten thousand.

Hardware Interface

This is another feature of a short-throw projector that can not be overlooked under any circumstances. This feature tells you about different types of devices that can be connected and can do that. Different options of hardware interface available are VGA, AV Port, USB, HDMI, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc. Also, make sure to check whether the projector can be connected to both Android and iOS or even different operating systems. This is a feature that is well suited for the saying “ the more the better”.
