i was reading the VC-1 RFC and came across this:

Quote:
Of the three profiles, only Advanced profile allows codec

configuration parameters, such as the picture aspect ratio, to be

changed through in-band signaling in the compressed bit stream.

Potentially good news for those with xtreme definition displays.


I for one look forward to some 1920x1080 2.35 movies!

There is no official standard for anamorphic HD video. HD video is all square pixel.

It doesnt matter that the standalone players don't support flexible resizing. (which they should imho.)

If you have a HTPC then it is a simple matter of resizing in PowerDVD.


So if they have an Anamorphic version then any PC Drive will play it.

They could do them as flippers. "This side enhanced for playback on really wide screen displays".
