I have a hybrid (2.0) screen, 72"H x 144"W. So now when having a 16x9 pic, it is displayed as 72"H x128"W (I have masking panels on the side). Now if the 1000 scales a 16x9 pic to 1.88888 AR, would I then be able to display this as 72"H x 136"? But is the pic 'stretched', or is it distorted?
I would hope one can display 16:9/1.78:1 as 3840 x 2160
and 2.35:1 as 4096 x 1743 along with true 4k(1.89:1) at 4096 x 2160?
Zoom in/out to fit the width and mask the top/bottom of the screen if required
Don't like the idea of having to alter the original AR, which means cropping or distorting the original image.
