You would lose resolution in the 1.78 frame in this case (using the lumagen to digitally zoom the image). It would require adjusting the image of the Highlite to fill the 12 foot wide screen; then crop down the image to 1.78 aspect digitally- the projector is still zoomed out optically, the only way to make the image smaller is to reduce resolution because the Highlite does not have lens memory.
The Titan chasis, I'm guessing Christie chasis, probably the Projection Design (Avielo) Helios chasis, Barco, NEC DCI, and the more expensive Runcos should have the ability to zoom in and zoom out via lens presets. I know for sure the Titan and Barco projectors do.
