Hello guys



Yesterday I receive my BENQ W1070 FULL HD 3D projector,
I need to know how I can use this aspect ratio (I don't found it in the main menu)

Small note :
The aspects ratios I found in the main menu is : Auto, real, 4:3, wide.
It should be I found 16:9, and the 2:35.1 (which I need), but not.

In the specifications I read the 2:35.1 aspect ratio is supported by this projector.

Can anyone tell me how I can found this aspect ratio (2:35.1) ?





Please help.





Thx.

Are you trying to use an anamorphic lens? Or just display 2.35:1 content with black bars? If it's the later, just play it on the projector. You'll get black bars where the 16:9 DMD isn't fully used to display the image.

Yes there is anamorphic ratio, but i get no different between the the anamorphic & real & wide & auto, the only different i see is when selecting the 4:3 ratio.

Can anyone help me how to choose the 2:35.1 ratio in the BenQ w1070 please ?

Also i see some thing called letter box, & like i say, wide, anamorphic, real, auto, what that aspects mean ?

I need only the 2:35.1 simply !!!!!!!

Is important if i need to use the 2:35.1 ratio, the video or the game (content should have a 2:35.1 aspect ration) ?

Or its only can selected from the projector directly ?

Just set the aspect ratio to "Auto" and connect everything up. If your source is playing 2.35:1 content then it will display on a 16:9 screen with black bars top and bottom. If you have a 2.35:1 screen then you can zoom in so those bars are off the top and bottom of the screen.

I think your confusion is coming from the fact that you don't understand that this is a 16:9 projector... it may be capable of displaying 2.35:1 content, but it will do so in a 16:9 ratio with black bars top and bottom. That's just what it does... it isn't natively a 2.35:1 projector. The other settings are for scaling other ratio signals so that you can use all of a 16:9 screen if desired. I doubt I'm alone in saying the scaling settings cause a lot of confusion for newbies and those who do understand them will probably never use them... Personally, I think it would be easier if they were not there in most cases.

Question... have you tried hooking it all up and playing your content? I think this would be a lot more clear to you if you just tried it and saw what was happening.

So NO, you are not using an anamorphic lens (I didn't think so, but might as well be nice and ask).

As others have said, you're a bit confused. Just hook the projector up, use AUTO for the ratio (some manuf. have JUST as a one that does no scaling, that would also work), then play it. You will get black bars top and bottom on a 16:9 screen... because it's a 16:9 screen showing 2.35:1 content!


Just hit play and you'll see what we're talking about.

Guys, i make a custom resolution (1920X 860) on my pc.

But the borders of the picture is still (black or grey on the wall, yes the picture in 1920X860 resolution, but the project still show on the 16:9 ratio, (only the picture from the source shows in 1920X860).

Is that normal or should the projectir give a light of 1920X860 only !!!!!!!!

Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. If you wanted to use the full light path of a native 16:9 projector you would have to use an Anamorphic lens. So your source video image 1920x860 would have to be scaled vertically to the full 1920x1080 then optically projected back to it's native 2.35:1 ratio. That would be the only way to not have the projector actually project black bars.

now & after i read you answer, i understant everything, and yes i play in the picture source (make my own resolution 1920x860).

The problem is, i will order a 2:35.1 curved screen, so i need to warping the picture.
From here the confusion is coming to me, which is okay the picture source is a 1920x860, but the projector still project in the 16:9 or even so, & when u need to warp the picture coming from ur projector to fit ur screen, u need the borders of the picture completely which come from the projector not the borders of source (which is 1920x860 of me)
Thats it simply !!!!!!

you would still need to optical zoom though wouldnt you? Then your looking at stretching the pixels. Im new at this so help me out here. LOL



with an anamorphic lens there is no loss of resolution whereas zooming there would be?

I have a similar question. If I order a 2:35.1 curved screen, how will my DirecTv content look? I have been trying to read up on projectors and what setup would be best for me.
