As the title says, the initial version of my 2.35:1 inverse image pattern DVD is ready for testing.


This is just a proof of concept, but the goal of this DVD is to help prevent image retention and to try ensure even phosphor aging after watching several 2.35:1 movies in a row on a plasma tv. I figure that about 20 minutes for every 2-3 hours of 2.35:1 movies would be a good starting point.


This source is a 2.35:1 anamorphic image where the top and bottom "letterboxed" areas alternate between different colors and the main content (where the movie content would normally be) is a matted black. It's is the same general concept as the bright pillarbox option that most plasma tv's have for 4:3 content.


If anyone is interested in testing this out, please send me a quick PM and I will provide you with a link to download the ISO. I would appreciate any feedback on this.


Thanks!

I haven't had any sort of IR from letterboxed movies, but it sounds like a good idea.


Now, if you could just make the same thing for 4:3 letterboxing, all of the network logos and video game HUD's, I think you've got a potential best seller

I ran this for 2 hours, probably too long since I have IR from this in the opposite positions.
