What is the difference between short throw and long throw projectors?

Throw relates to the image magnification specific to each projector. Short throw projectors are able to produce a larger image at close range to the projection surface while long throw projectors perform the opposite. You can also look at the "Throw Ratio" rated by your projector. The smaller the throw ratio number, the larger of an image your projector will produce.
