Was reading the specs of the NEC LT156 on the 'ProjectorPeople.com' website and they list it's aspect ratio as, "4:3, zoom, cinema, cinema zoom"


Is 'cinema' supposed to be a consumer term for 16:9 or is it something totally different?

The LT156 is a 1024x768 XGA Projector which means that it is native 4:3.


The Zoom means that it has an optical zoom.


The Cinema and Cinema zoom are logical features that are used to squish the image, usually off of the s-video port and not the vga port, and used to fix the ratio of anamorphic DVD material. When you tell your DVD player that you have a 16:9 display then you will put your projector in Cinema Mode. But it you use an HTPC and WinDVD etc. then you can't use this option. (And don't need it either). Either way you will still see grey bars at the top and bottom of the screen when viewing 16:9 material.
