Projector screen size is limited by the width of the projector, how far away from the wall you can place it, and how large the image needs to be. There are easy ways to work around these limitations if you have an idea that’s too small or too big to fit on your screen as it currently stands.
These tricks make it easy to get just the right size screen, even if your projector isn’t capable of displaying images that large. This article will walk you through several methods that increase screen size.

Check the ratio of your computer monitor
Computer monitors are measured by their aspect ratio; as a rule of thumb, most desktop and laptop displays have an aspect ratio of 16:9, which refers to their width compared with height.
Projector screens generally come in 4:3 or 16:9 (or more rarely, 1.33:1), so if you’re connecting your computer to a projector, be sure your monitor matches its projection’s ratio. Otherwise, you may notice black bars on either side of your display or a chopped-off top and bottom.
Adjusting resolution – the advanced way
The problem with making a computer display larger is that you are also reducing its resolution as you enlarge it. The more you enlarge it, the lower your resolution becomes. Your goal is to find a happy medium between size and quality. A good rule of thumb is that anything under 50 inches doesn’t need adjusting. Most monitors can go up to 75 inches before they need adjusting.
Make projector screen bigger
To enjoy a nice big TV in your room, you need a projection system of sorts. In most cases, these systems include an LCD panel on top of a projector and speaker combination that rests on your shelf.
This method is best for people with smaller rooms who don’t want something intrusive, taking up space or blocking their TV viewing experience. However, many people wonder how they can enlarge their screen size without sacrificing picture quality – and sometimes even without spending more money.
A projector screen is an excellent addition to any business. They’re commonly used in classrooms, meeting rooms, and presentation rooms. These screens will usually be used with a projector and are meant to enhance the experience of the room that is being used. Most of these screens can be adjusted to make them as tall or short as needed. Changing the screen to the perfect height requires some work, but it’s not that difficult.
Why is my projector screen small?
If you’re trying to project images on a large, blank wall or whiteboard in your office, but find that you can’t get a big enough image (this is common when you’re trying to cast onto a wall that is already painted or covered with boards), here are two ways to fix it. The first method involves either buying new wallpaper or using a projector screen.
Why is my projector screen not square?
Many projectors will display images in a 4:3 aspect ratio by default. Most TVs have been 16:9 for years now, and they match up nicely. The problem is that when you’re projecting on a standard whiteboard or piece of paper, it’s not going to be as tall as it is wide. If you want your image to fill out your projection space perfectly, you’ll need to stretch or squish it, which can cause distortion. The best way around this? Use a projector screen designed specifically for your needs!
Do projectors hazoom?
Projectors don’t have a zoom feature. Depending on where you plan on projecting, it’s also possible that your room will prevent you from going any larger with your projection size. For example, if you want to project onto a wall in your home and there are already pictures, or artwork hung up nearby, moving closer may not be an option. In these cases, consider purchasing an inexpensive projector screen—or even making one yourselfto create more space for your picture without sacrificing quality.
How do I get my Epson projector to fit the screen?
The Epson short throw projectors have a standard throw ratio of 1.5:1, meaning that for a 100 image, you need a surface which is 150 wide. Many of us already have large screens, but they’re not always as wide as our chosen projector, so we need to do something about it. So here are some tips on overcoming your problem and getting your projector working with your existing screen.
