Yes, I did mean you I thought you had a 1.25 lens, but now I remember your issue was the long throw.Thanks for posting this.
If I understand your question correctly, the distortion would be linear. But how visible is it? Technically you would want to do a 35% vertical electronic stretch for a lens that does a 35% optical stretch. This is fine if you have a scaler that can make those fine adjustments. But again - how visible is all of this stuff and is it worth worrying about? That's a personal call. All lenses - even projector lenses - add a certain amount of distortion. Is it noticeable...
Our estimate is 10 - 15%.
Anamorphic lenses for home theater projection stretch the image horizontally by 33% or (compress it vertically by 25%). What you end up with is a 2.37:1 aspect ratio when extrapolated from a 16:9 display (1.78 x 133% = 2.37). AFAIK, no HT lens manufacturer differentiates between a "2.35:1 lens" and a "2.40:1" lens (or even a 2.37:1 lens), at least in terms of manufacturing two different options. I believe some of the Prismasonic lenses allowed for variable stretch, but...
You are correct - V-stretch is a scaling function, where MFE offers a true 33% additional resolution in the vertical. There will need to be a decode device in the projector, the Blu-ray player, or in a separate decoder box. It's way too early to determine where that will end up.Some players might be able to be upgraded via firmware, but most probably not.You are also correct in thinking that zoom will not be able to take advantage of the additional resolution.All of this...
For anyone following this, Shawn and I did a complete show on MFE anamorphic Blu-ray and Deep Color Encoding with Scott Wilkinson yesterday: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1516457/who-wants-more-resolution-color-with-john-schuermann-shawn-kelly#post_24324946 In depth discussion of all of this.
Thanks for your comments! We agree that there is a lot to absorb in this episode. Scott is a great host; it's really wonderful to have a discussion like this with someone who understands a great deal about so many different facets of a/v technology To answer your first question, the studios are open to supplying masters for this type of encoding, but just like anything else, they want to see a clear business proposition. To make things easy for the studios, we are...
Wow, news to me! (Obviously.)
My suggestion - call Robin at SIM2 tech support. He should be able to answer these questions. Are you in the US?
Can you draw in where you plan on putting the screen / furniture, etc? For everything you ever wanted to know about acoustic treatments, go here: http://realtraps.com/ A good place to start: http://realtraps.com/art_room-setup.htm
