What happens if you place the projector a little less than 77mm to the wall? Will the picture become unfocused or distorted? My projection screen (wall) is 191 cm wide.  I would like to move the projector a little closer, eg. 75mm or 74mm. Possible?

Asked by: Millimeter
It can cause the image to look distorted or bent. However, each setup is different and would depend on the preference of the viewers.
