The new Paladin lens system is truly a statement piece of design and technology. Applying both highly balanced internal color convergence correction and integrated focus-free astigmatism correction for all typical home theater throw distances, the Paladin delivers amazingly sharp optical clarity that supports well beyond 4K resolutions. Using Panamorph’s patented vertical compression technology to convert 16:9 projectors to full 2.4:1 UltraWide performance, the Paladin is specifically designed to let projectors operate at the higher range of their zoom settings to deliver the maximum brightness possible.

Guidelines for the Panamorph Paladin

Screen aspect ratioA Flat screen with width-to-height ratio of 2.40:1 is recommended with a standard 3.5″ (90mm) border.
Throw distanceThe distance from screen to projector should be within the lens throw distance range for highest clarity (see Lens Specifications).
Maximum 2.4:1 screen diagonalMaximum: Less than 0.75 x throw distance. Ideal: Less than 0.60 x throw distance.
Projector placementHorizontal: The projector should be horizontally positioned at roughly the horizontal center of the screen so no horizontal lens shift is used.
Vertical: If the projector is located above screen center it should be ceiling mounted (feet up) so that the anamorphic lens can hang down from its bracket.
Maximum beam size75mm (H) x 60mm (V) at entrance to lens. This is typically sufficient for all HT projectors.
