I've been searching and haven't found what I'm looking for, but I must assume it exists (maybe lumagen?). I am looking for a device that will auto detect the aspect ratio of the source signal, apply appropriate action (vertically stretch or unstretch if it was last stretching), and simultaneously send a signal out via 12v trigger. I would then have the trigger signal connected to both my Cineslide and future electronic masking.

Does this exist? How many children must I sell to afford such a device, lol,? Thanks!

Part of the issue with this is regular TV viewing. Some commercials are in the 2.40:1 aspect ratio, plus with video games often the game is in 16:9 while the cut scenes are in 2.40:1. In the instance of TV viewing, it would get pretty annoying if the lens were moving in and out for 60 second durations smile.gif

I would only be using it for movie viewing, but I understand your point. The sooner you guys get the Folded Space blu-rays on the market, the sooner my issue goes away and I won't need such a device. Hurry up! Lol

I wish Lumagen would hurry up and get this feature alreeady. They have been saying that they have been working on this for at least a year now. I too would love for this to happen.
