Hi Paul,

I’m in the process of putting together an AR sandbox for my institution. Based on my research, it might be difficult to find another projector with the throw ratio of the BenQ MX631ST, which is about 1.0 (actually, adjustable from 0.9 – 1.08). What that allows is for the projector and Kinect sensor to be mounted at the same height above the sand, which simplifies the design of the exhibit. IOW, at about 40″ above the sand, the 40″ x 30″ box just fits within the field of view of both the Kinect and projector.

It should be possible to use another short throw projector with a 4:3 aspect ratio, but I think it would have to be mounted at a different height than the Kinect. At least, that’s the way I understand it.

Hope that helps, and good luck with your project.

-Steve
