DPI's New Projector Avoids the Whole Picture Stretching Issue for 2.35:1 Content

Posted Tue Sep 20, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Instead of using special lenses to get the picture to the width it needs to be, DPI just made a projector that can handle 2.35:1 right out of the gate.

The upcoming dVision Scope projector from DPI does things a little differently than you might expect when it comes to 2.35:1 content. It doesn't need a lens or any sort of special attachment to get you there - it's capable of this widescreen format right out of the box.

When 1080p content is show on the dVision Scope, the extra pixels go unused and you'll be able to experience your show or movie in proper resolution. When you pop in a 2.35:1 flick, the projector gives you the full 2,560 by 1,600.

You can switch between 1080 and 2.35:1 with a constant height, and the projector isn't limited to those two. Any resolution size above 16:9 can be adjusted to.
