In the early days of projectors having a small room could mean that a projector wouldn't work for you. Thankfully the wide variety of short throw projectors that are available today allow for a wider range of use in small spaces. InFocus has unveiled a new short throw projector called the IN146.
The new projector has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and can throw a 720p HD image. The room you need for the IN146 is not huge to get a nicely sized image. From only 2.5 feet from the wall or projection surface you can get a 60-inch image.
The projector is also very bright at 2700 lumens, which will allow it to be used in rooms that have ambient light. The projector is 3D capable and has HDMI input and a RS232 port. DLP technology inside the projector should make for a good viewable image. The lamp is good for 6000 hours and DLP projectors need no filter.
