(usually a wide-top narrow-bottom effect) of a projected image caused by improper projector to screen angle. Maximum Distance — The distance from a screen the projector can be to cast an image that is usable (bright enough) in a fully darkened room.
Zoom Lens Ratio — Is the ratio between the smallest and largest image a lens can projector from a fixed distance. For example, a 1.4:1 zoom lens ratio means that a 10 foot image without zoom would be a 14 foot image with full zoom.
