I know that any HD RPTV and certain Sony Wega can take advantage of the anamorphic DVDs by squeezing the image vertically to achieve maximum resolution.


Can a LCD/DLP front projector without a built-in line doubler take advntage of the anamorphic DVDs? If so, how does it achieve the maximum resolution, i.e. the implementation behind this capability?


Is there such a thing as the minimum ceiling clearance in order to ceiling mount a front projector? I will like to get a 100" screen to the basement on a wall that has a clearance of about 7'. Depending on the throw distance of the front projector that I will be getting, I'm afraid that I won't be able to ceiling mount the front projector because it may end up at the section of the ceiling that has only 6' of clearance.


Please advise. Thanks!

Hi,

Most newer LCD/DLP projectors 800x600 and above can take advantage of anamorphic DVDs. They just use a 16x9 ratio on the panels.(800x600 would be the starting point as it uses 800x450 pixels). Also all LCD/DLP projectors have line doublers. The panels need a progressive signal.
