We use Panasonic LP-T711E projectors, from memory.  With wide angle
lens attachments on them (not v. expensive) they give a throw ratio
of 1:0.95 or so - i.e. the image is wider than the throw.  Our current
room is about 4m front to back!

We are building an AG Node here at Ole Miss. Our room will be only 21 feet 
from front to back, and so we want a projector that we can place fairly 
close to the front (12 to 15 feet from front, rather than 18-20 feet), and 
still project a 10-foot wide image, yet not require us to bunch all 
participants and tables at the back of the room, out of the projection.

After considering several projectors proposed by a local A/V vendor, we are 
poised to order a couple of Hitachi CPX-380W LCD Projectors, due to their 
high lumens (2000) and reasonable throw ratio (1:1.3).

Anyone have any experience to share concerning Hitachi projectors?
