Especially with the generous throwing distances the Casio projectors offer...
    Can you not just use the Unicol universal mount?

    Another thing to think about, is to ensure that the new projectors have the lens on the same side as the old projector. Otherwise you will not get a square image.

    You should be able to use a universal mount if it is standard 50mm or matches the pole you have used.

    You will need to keep in mind however that the casio's use M3 screws to fix to a ceiling mount not the standard M6 and as such you need to ensure you have the correct screws and probably washers etc to fit to the plate.

    Wink

    Well I would say that the Unicol one would generally be more expensive so I was saying it depends what you want to spend.

    Oh right,

    If you look through the thread there are already unicol mounts in situ and historically unicol have not used standard dimension poles to stop people using bog standard universal mounts on them.

    I quite agree though unicol are expensive.

    I have retro fitted Sahara brackets to Unicol poles in the past without an issue.

    Yes some of them may be 50mm but it depends which ones as some are square.

    Best to check with your AV supplier and send them a photo of existing mounts.
