My experience with this feature, has led me to believe that one can maintain an excellent quality Anamorphic Image. CT_WIEBE has given me the settings in November or December last year.
My intention for this projector was to have an Anamorphic Screen set up without a lens. The image is extremely large. I have a Wilson Art 1.5 Gain Screen, light controlled room and the Width of this screen is somewhere in the 141 inch range, maybe larger - cant remember exactly.
I have been using this PJ in low lamp mode and the image is fantastic on this screen.
After I used CT_WIEBE's posting for how to view anamorphic material, I was stunned.
After CT_WIEBE's settings he posted - I simply press one button on my remote called the ASPECT button, when I do this I press a right arrow key and I can switch between 16X9 and Anamorphic called AUTO. There is no long processing that takes place, no need to have it cover my image. You can change this aspect ratio in a second.
As a bonus, I have played with this setting since December. No matter which movie or tv show I throw at it. Even in 16X9, when I change this setting to Auto, the HC6800 intelligently scales it to 2:35 mode with no picture degradation and image looks superb.
This to me is exactly the functionality that I was looking for. If I were a buyer looking for anamorphic without lens, and knew that this feature was present on this PJ, I would really look hard at this PJ. Thus I think its noteworthy to be mentioned as having this important functionality incorporated in the review as I think this is actually a better solution than what the PTAE 4000 provides.
Just my two cents.
