native 2.35:1 projector

Is there a native 2.35:1 projector so you dont need an anamorphic lens? I see that barco has one modell called CRPN-52B (looks like an projectiondesign) that has 2560x1080 resolution

Projection Design has/had one, Sim2 did also. Pretty sure both were $30k+

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen

It would be perfect, but I've a feeling that with the home cinema market being a bit of a niche, this would end up being a niche within a niche.

Philips and Visio tried it with 21:9 tvs and that seems to have failed in the market as neither seem to be making them any more.

With the scope projectors that were available being $30k+, it was cheaper to buy a good quality projector and ISCO or equivalent lens to get the same result. Only difference being some pincushion.

With current Sony 4K projectors we could use the horizontal portion for a fixed 2.35 and mask the rest and it would still be cheaper. Zooming with 4k would work for the majority as pixel sizes would be much smaller and make the advantage of a lens less noticeable. Some would still use a lens so as to not throw away 2 million pixels.

I would love a native scope pj, but until that actually happens at an affordable price, we'll have to stick with lenses or zooming.

the thing is tht my screen in 2.35:1 is 4m wide so it is quite a big screen that needs a projector with a lot of brightness so maybe one of the projectors or the sony VW1100

The Sony VW500 has only marginally less lumens than the 1000, so would light up your screen just fine and is a lot cheaper.

When calibrated to D65, the 500 has around 1500 lumens compared to around 1700 for the 1000 (acording to Cine4home.de). Your screen will need around 1000 lumens for 12fL and with a unity gain screen you will get around 15fL, so some room for lamp dimming. If the screen has some gain, better still, but if it's perf or weave at around 0.8 then you will get just over 12.
