I agree with just about all of what you are saying. RE: 70mm or CinemaScope, that's why I said "most films," not "all."

Your information does conflict with some of what I have learned (or been...

I think you've really summed it up - it's memory, and how we heard things when we were younger. I wouldn't be surprised if in twenty years this generation starts waxing (no pun intended)...

It cannot stretch native 4K material. It can certainly stretch Blu-ray, HD streaming, broadcast, satellite, cable, etc. The only thing it can't stretch (or process at all, to my knowledge) it true...

Yes, by using a lens you take advantage of the entire 3840 x 2160 pixel grid of the projector, vs. 3840 x 1620 when you zoom letterboxed material. While this doesn't result in any true additional...

Correct. Right now there are no processors that will do the necessary vertical stretch with native 4K material, but Jim at Lumagen is working on it. Fortunately the projector will stretch 1080P no...

If you have a Panamorph UH480 or DC1, both are fully capable of 4K performance. In fact, the DC1 is the only anamorphic lens specifically recommended by Sony for their 4K projectors.

For the record, we are only discussing square pixels. MFE works with square pixels going in and going out. The end result after decode is a true anamorphic image at 1920 x 1080 using square pixels....

Yes, that's possible with HD 1080P MFE material, but of course, not what we want you to do ;)

Sure, a Lumagen could perform the necessary decoding, but of course, that capability would have to be added. We have actually kept Jim Peterson in the loop during some of our explorations.
