Hi. I am setting up my 1030Q1 from my Iscan Pro.

I will set up the image for 1.78:1 (i.e. 16:9) aspect ratio on my 80":45" screen. Now, when I play a movie that is 2.35 : 1 aspect ratio, what size (horizontal : vertical) will the projected image be on the 80" wide screen? Will the width be maintained at 80"?

Pls pardon the ignorance since I am still a newbie a this CRT thing.

Hello,


The only thing you will see is black letterbox bars at the top and bottom of the screen for 2.35:1 movies. This is anamorphic wide screen and your screen as with most of us use standard wide screen 16:9 screens.


A 1.35:1 movie will fit top to bottom just fine.


The width of the movies are both the same for 1.35 and 2.35:1 so all that changes is the top to bottom width and you get black bars. Not really a big deal.
