Cheap Video Processor with Zoom OUT
I need some help please.
I have CIH setup and I leave my projector constantly zoomed out to fill the 21:9 screen. I have black velvet on the top and bottom of the screen to absorb the light spill over. I leave it like this because my projector does not have electronic lens shift nor lens memory.
I need a cheap video processor that will allow me to shrink a 16:9 image from a source to the 21:9 aspect ratio. What I mean is that a 16:9 image would be shrunk to a resolution of around 817x1454, within the 21:9 screen area. Of course, the processor would still output the full 1080p signal, the actual image, however, would take up on that little space of 817x1454.
I realize that the Lumagen processors do this (HDP and up) as well as some of the DVDO ones do (VP50, VP50 PRO, not sure about the EDGE or Duo). These are all about $200-$800 on eBay and do way more than I need.
Is there a cheap processor you all know of that can do what I need? All I need is one DVI/HDMI input and output.
P.S. I really hate starting new threads but I've searched for about 2 hours and I have not found a solution. Your input would be appreciated or direct to where it is already discussed!
