now as everyone knows, when using the oppo, you can press the zoom - stretch button - I slide my ISCO III lens into place and voila I have wonderful scope ratio movies no black bars.
Now lets change up things
I replace the sony vpl 50 project with a sony 500/600ES 4k projector
now I do the same thing, except I hit the resolution button to upscale my oppo from 1080p/24 to 4k/2k at I assume 24p -- -and now I send the image to my project the 500 ES in this case, and now I press the stretch button what would happen? would it stretch like what happens when I use that button on 1080p resolution?
this is the oppo stretching not the projecto since my vpl50 certainly cannot do that. I cannot test this since I do not have 'yet' a 4k projector and the manual for the oppo does not state anywhere I can find (perhaps I missed it) that when in 4k upscaling 'stretch will not work' is this true? anyone have such a configuration and tried it?
I do not recall if the vertical stretch can be done while also scaling to 4k. I don't have a 4k display so I can't test that feature.
I also don't know if 4k can be output as 24fps. I know the scaling is somewhat limited.
Remember the hardware in the player is now a few years old.
The manual for the BDP-105 does say this...
>>"For content that has a 50Hz or 60Hz (59.95Hz) frame rate, the output will be 4Kx2K at 25Hz or 30Hz (29.97Hz)."<<
I know the "D" models (BDP-105D and BDP-103D) do have the ability to
output 4K/50 and 4K/60 in YCbCr 4:2:0 data format on the HDMI-1 output. That is not possible on the non-D models.
So that would be a plus for you since you already have a -105D.
However, an important factor that you may not be thinking of, it that whatever 4k display you do get,
it may do the scaling to 4k better than what the Oppo can do, and if that is the case, then the other factors might be moot.
