There are acutually only a handful of 16:9 units available right now, but they are becoming more and more common. Until recently, the only way to find a 16:9 native panel (on a digital projector) was to get an LCD. They just recently started coming out with 16:9 DLP units. Cedia is supposed to have several of them for show this September. I wouldn't eliminate 4:3 units altogether, though. As Greg said, you can add on an anamorphic lens which will effectively turn a 4:3 unit into a 16:9 unit. In many cases, this will be superior performance to 16:9 units. Mainly because the 16:9 units are still being perfected and do have some inherent flaws.
