Question for current or potential Sony 4K projector users with a 2.35 screen
(Sorry have asked the same question on 385 owner thread)
To use the Lens Memory function to switch back and force between 16:9 and 2.35 content,
for 16:9 movie/TV, you will zoom out so the height of 16:9 movie fill the entire height of the screen,
for 2.35 movie, you will zoom in so the 2.35 frame within the 16:9 native output will fill the 2.35 screen (upper and lower black bars fall out of screen).
What is interesting is, the 4096x2160 Sony has a aspect option, you can choose 1.78:1 or 2.35:1. The usage of the pannel pixel is different.
Choose 1.78:1 you will use the full height of the pannel (3840x2160),
while choose 2.35:1 you will use full width of the pannel (4096x1743).
Suppose we won't change this option during the Lens Memory swtich, So to use as much of the pixels as possible (93.75% vs. 80.7%), we will opt the 1.78:1 and keep the height constant.
Above is my understanding, please correct me if I'm wrong.
The reason I ask this, is because I am adding apsect option for JACK LIU Projection Calculator.
And my calculation for 2.35 screen is based on constant height (the 1.78 option) so the data is different than VW285ES manual (the 2.35 option).
Just to confirm with you guys who are actually using 2.35 screen. Thanks!
