I have a custom size screen (144x72, i.e., 2.0) and for Sony's 1.9 pic I zoom to fill the 72" height. The width of the pic is then 136", and I have a masking panel (8" wide x 72" high) that I...

I appreciate your point. It depends on the size of the screen one has/wants. Below a certain level of brightness the pic just looks dull, no matter what else.

But how come is it that in...
