Throw Ratio:
NOTE: In the following discussion Throw Ratio (TR) is defined as:
?Throw from projector lens divided by 16:9-format image width?.

Throw Ratio can be calculated in one of two ways (where T = Throw):

Based on 16:9-screen width (W):
TR = T/W

Based on Screen Height(H)
TR = T * 0.5625/H

Pincushion as a decimal fraction of screen height (PP) = 4.21/(100*{TR}^1.910963)
Absolute Pincushion: PP*H


  • Anamorphic Expansion Ratio:

1.33x nominal (varies +1%, -0.7% with throw ratio and focus distance, see Aspect Ratio Conformance)

  • Recommended Throw Range:

2.5 metres ? Infinity (8.2' ? Infinity)

  • Effective lens Dimensions:

Rear lens: 78mm
Mid Lens: 116mm
Exit lens: 132mm

  • Optical Length (vertex to vertex):

131mm (5.2")

  • Mechanical Length:

150mm, including focusing knob (5.9")

  • Maximum Width:

150mm at exit lens (5.9")

  • Weight:

3.1 kilos (~6.8 pounds) without stand
4.3 kilos (~9.5 pounds) with stand

  • Optical Architecture:

All Cylindrical,
5 elements (2 doublets, one singlet),
3 groups (two end lenses fixed, one moveable intermediate focusing lens)

    • Anti-Reflection Coating ? Contrast Maximization ? Stray Reflection Minimization:

AR Coating:
Proprietary multi-coating designed specifically for wide gamut projector lamps (UHP, Xenon and LED) on all glass-air surfaces.

Internal mechanical surfaces:
Matte-anodized with micro-ridged inner barrel.
Internal rectangular mask to block peripheral stray light

  • Optical Calibration standards:

Lens elements calibrated to <0.02 strong="">O of rotation (cumulative) from datum point.
Maximum cumulative lateral displacement: <0.1mm. p=""><!--0.1mm.--><!--0.02--><!--0.1mm.--><!--0.02--><!--0.1mm.--><!--0.02--><!--0.1mm.--><!--0.02-->

Orthogonality (skew between vertical and horizontal):

  • Environmental Protection:

Internally moisture and dust-proof
Quintuple sealed front and rear (5 x non-organic rubber ?harsh environment" O-rings)

Non-organic lens coatings

Front and rear lens caps included
For out-of-beam dust-proofing and transport protection.

ISO Class 4 clean room assembly.

Packaging and Transportation
Double thickness cardboard shipping case with 60mm polyeurethane foam all around.

  • Astigmatism Performance (focus clarity across screen):

1. All measurements assume orthogonal projector alignment (centered on screen center).
2. Subtract 2% from X-axis measurements for curved screen.

  • Color Transmission Performance

Minimal: 2% yellow shift only, compared to original raw projector image.
Note: During fine calibration, BLUE channel only needs correction by 2%. This is well within the human eye's compensation ability, so many users do not bother with the adjustment.

  • Contrast Loss compared to original image

On/Off: < 0.5% loss
ANSII: < 0.5% loss

  • Constant Height Performance:

Negligible change between lens-in to lens-out.

Height reduction <0.5% tr="2)," 0="" 3="" when="" lens="" installed="" p=""><!--0.5%--><!--0.5%--><!--0.5%--><!--0.5%-->

This equates to a maximum of 5mm per metre of screen height (0.06" per foot of screen height).

  • Pincushion:

Nominally identical to other 1.33x anamorphic lenses.

Pincushion as a percentage of Screen Height:
<1.8% at="" tr="1.6<br"><!--1.8%--><1.2% at="" tr="2.0<br"><!--1.2%--><0.8% at="" tr="2.5</br"><!--0.8%--><!--1.2%--><!--1.8%--><!--0.8%--><!--1.2%--><!--1.8%--><!--0.8%--><!--1.2%--><!--1.8%--><!--0.8%--><!--1.2%--><!--1.8%-->

Pincushion Calculations (assuming lens is tilted evenly):

Pincushion as a decimal fraction of screen height (PP):
PP = 4.21/(100*{TR}^1.910963) ? (multiply x100 for percentage)

Absolute Pincushion:

  • Geometric/Grid Distortion:

Flat screen:

@TR=1.5: Typically 7.95% edge-to-center
@TR=2.0: Typically 4.4% edge-to-center
@TR=2.5: Typically 2.8% edge-to-center
