Aspect Ratio Friendly Projector

Digital Light Projection, also known as DLP, just announced its new dVision Scope 1080p, a native 2:35:1 precision DLP
projector. The hook here, however, is that the 2560 x 1080 dVision Scope
delivers a true 1080p solution for 2:35 aspect content, without the need for
optical stretching or an anamorphic lens.

Promising about 2.75 million pixels of detail, the single-chip dVision Scope
1080p is one of the only anamorphic lens-free, full resolution, constant height
projectors available today.

Also, even though it doesn’t use that added anamorphic lens, it can still
move easily between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 aspect ratio content. At 1.78, that
content is displayed at a native 1080p resolution. When a wider aspect ratio is
needed, the image is resized horizontally (up to 2560 pixels), while maintaining
that vertical height. The projector can also detect the presence of “letterbox”
black bars, and automatically resize the image to fill the height of the DMD
(1080p).

Designed for home use with medium to large screen sizes, the Scope 1080p
boasts a flexible installation, with throw ratios as short as .8:1 and as long
as 4.5:1. Projector lumens and black levels can be tweaked based on room
conditions. Also, the projector’s quick-change motorized lens provides a broad
range of horizontal and vertical lens shift.
