Nowadays the content we view on screen comes in many different aspect ratios. It’s not all 16:9.
If you have a dedicated cinema or media room with a scope aspect screen of 2.35:1 or 2.41 this can be a real pain. Projctors these days can have lens memories that allow you to zoom in and out but these take time to activate and the constant movement of the lens motors means that you have to continually refocus and tweak to ensure optimum image fidelity… and that’s of the memory actually puts the image back to the same on screen location every time!
Lumagen Radiance Pro video processors have the ability to deploy automatic aspect ratio detection. When set up they detect those 2.1 Netflix shows and automatically fill the height of your scope screen. This happens for 4:3, 1.78:1, 1.85:1, 2.0:1, 2.2:1, 2.35:1 and 2.4:1 Some of our clients have even used this automatic aspect detection to automatically move masking on their fixed screens as the Radiance Pro will report incoming aspects to connected equipment via RS232 serial output.
