Display 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 content without an anamorphic lens
No More Black Bars!
Experience the CE channel’s premier anamorphic lens-free, full resolution, constant height projector, courtesy of Digital Projection’s dVision Scope Based on the native WQXGA (2560 x 1600) DMD, the dVision Scope enlists an incredible 2560 x 1080 resolution for higher-than-HD detailed imagery. Until recently, peripheral anamorphic sled systems had been the best solutions to achieve great imagery and a consistent image height when moving between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 content. However, anamorphic lens solutions add significant cost, as well as mechanical and optical complexity to the installation. Additionally, anamorphic optics consume about 10% of the projector’s brightness and reduce the contrast ratio.
No anamorphic optics are required when the dVision Scope projector is employed in a constant height application. When 1.78 content is being viewed, that content is simply displayed by the projector at 1080p resolution. When wider aspect ratio content is presented, the wider content continues to be displayed at 1080 pixels of vertical resolution, so the vertical height of the image is maintained. Horizontally, the image is re-sized to fit a 2560 X 1080 format. Then the projector’s aspect ratio is adjusted such that the wider content is presented with increased horizontal resolution (beyond the 1920 horizontal pixels associated with 1080p content). The projector automatically detects the presence of “letterbox” black bars and will re-size the image to fit the height of the DMD (1080p) while maintaining the proper aspect ratio.
