DCR-J1 (Standard Throw) is a vertical compression lens (shown above) which does not change the native projector image width and can be used at throw distances of approximately 17′ (5.18m) and above. Projector throw ratio should be at least 1.40:1 and preferably higher to reduce barrel distortion.

DCR-J1-ST (Short Throw) and DCR-J1-SST (Super Short Throw) are horizontal expansion lenses mounted identically to the DCR-J1 that expand the native projector width by approximately 25% for a larger cinema-format image from more limited theater spaces. DCR-J1-ST should be mounted to a projector with projector lens approximately 15′ 6″ (4.72m) from the screen. DCR-J1-SST should be mounted to a projector with projector lens approximately 11′ (3.35m) from the screen. See the Home Page for more information including maximum image sizes at various throw distances. New orders for ST and SST lenses are expected to ship end of May.
