why would the height be effected. both are 1080p vertically.

Would 16:9 t not just use the centre 1920 x 1080 pixels of the 2560 x 1080 panel?

I like the purple bezel, that would look pretty cool hanging in the bedroom.

Josh was responding to Nashou66's suggestion of a 21:9 display with native resolution of 1920x800. That way, there'd be no scaling of scope blu-ray material. But as Josh points out, then 1.78 material will need to be downscaled to 1440x800. No matter what, something will need to be scaled.

Almost a year later, looks like it may be getting closer to reality?

I found the comments on that link to be interesting. Still a great deal of CIH education needed.

Do you think it's doing some sort of internal ch adjustment or would you still need a scaler/player capable of making the conversion.

According to this sneak peek, the TV can auto-detect scope content on the fly and zoom, or ignore it, based on a user setting. So menus for scope movies are 16:9 and then the feature is zoomed to 21:9 on the fly.

They also show a 16:9 image pushed all the way to one side, accommodating a widget in the open area.

Pretty sweet

that said, it looks like at least one bit conflicts with info at vizio.com (click the cinemawide HDTV button near the top right). The manufacturer's webiste suggests that the 21:9 TV's will also be 3D (polarized - RealD 3D) while the sneak peek link says the 21:9 is not 3D capable.

fromn vizio.com "Available later this year in 50” and 58” class sizes, these Cinemawide HDTVs also feature Razor LED™ backlighting with Smart Dimming and Theater 3D™ technology for brilliant picture quality and a superior 3D experience"

Yeah, the press release today said 3d no doubt about it. Very cool that it can autodetect! Color me interested.

Agreed. What's not so cool is that their passive 3D is interlaced left and right eye images (each eye sees half of 1080) but really - I'm not interested in 3D like I am in 21:9.

It looks like the 71'' is going to be a 21:9 model as well

Wonder what the price on this one is going to be ... hopefully Vizio actually ends up releasing this model.

A Walmart salesperson just told me he believes Sanyo is also coming out with a 21:9 TV... He told me this after he greeted me at the door.

I'm not a early adapter kind of guy.
120 Hz... please!
And I'm pro-plasma.
Just the same, the sooner we all see this, even if it is at the end of the yr, the sooner the Gen2's come out.
W/all the bells & whistles of other >$1000US displays.
