Light spill on 2,35:1 screen?

502 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  AV8TER
When watching 16:9 content with dark scenes I get light spill on the left and right sides
The projector is a JVC
I don't really want to hang dark fabric on the screen every time i watch 16:9 content
Is there another solution I haven't thought of?

Zoom or anamorphic lens?
Projector calibrated?
Zoom - when I zoom out for a 2,35:1 image I get faint spill on dark red walls
I posed this same question to a JVC product manager a few weeks ago. He told me that the native aspect ratio of the imager chips is 17:9. A 16:9 source does not utilize the full native resolution of the chips, thus when zoomed to fill the screen, the unutilized resolution spills light past the screen boarder.

From Wikipedia: In television and consumer media, 3840 × 2160 (4K UHD) is the dominant 4K standard, whereas the movie projection industry uses 4096 × 2160 (DCI 4K).
