You know that looks suspiciously like a special aspect mode. As an example here's a description from my Panny manual (unfortunately I was unable to copy the image from the PDF):
"JUST mode will display a 4:3 picture at maximum size
but with aspect correction applied to the center of the
screen so that elongation is only apparent at the left
and right edges of the screen. The size of the picture
will depend on the original signal."
This is for folks that like to watch their 4:3 material in 16:9 aspect but without distorting the center material.
Not me, I'll just watch in good ol' 4:3.
Anyhow on my Panny it's selectable via the Aspect button on the remote, although unavailable in 480p and 1080i on component inputs. This TV doesn't have Aspect in the menu either.
