These tables show the distance between projector and screen (as measured from the front of the lens to the closest part of the screen).
First are numbers are for a 100" diagonal. If you choose a larger - or even smaller - screen, it's easy to adapt this chart. For example, if you went with a 120" diagonal screen - that's 20% larger, so both the closest and furthest distances would increase by 20%. It's that easy - basic calculator stuff. Or, for you math freaks, just do the math in your heads.
Sony does provide a separate chart in their manual for those going widescreen. I've provided the throw distances for the 2.35:1 screen info they listed. You just have to remember - you can't mount the projector as close to a widescreen as the widescreen table allows, and view 16:9 content without overshooting the screen vertically at top and bottom.
To solve this problem, Figure that if you pick a widescreen size - let's say 124", then you should also look at the 100" chart for 16:9 (close - 124" widescreen creates about a 99" 16:9 image.)
If you use 124" as a wide screen diagonal it will be the equivalent of a 99" diagonal 16:9 in height, ti will just be about 25% wider. , you end up with a minimum distance of 12 feet 3 inches, which would be the closest you could place the projector if using a 124" 2.35:1 screen, but want to use lens memory to fully fill the height of the screen for 16:9 content (letter boxing on the sides).
