    Hello... i am planning on buying a projector but i would like to clarify some notions that i have...

    for instance if i buy a casio WXGA 1280x800 which is 16:10 when i play a 1080p rip which is 1920x800 the black bars will cut the image... the display will be 1280x580 or will it be 1280x800?


    If it is the first case... do i have a way to expand the image without losing the normal ratio.

    thanks in advance guys

    The projector will rescale the resolution of the rip to the native resolution of the projector. But can I ask, why not just buy a projector made for home theatre? Ie a 720p or 1080p projector?

    So you want a portable projector to carry with your portable media player?

    The image you 'see' will be 1280 x 533 approx (for 2.40:1 aspect ratio films) with the black bars taking up the remainder of the pixels. The only thing you can do is use an anamorphic lens (which would cost more than the projector) or somehow electronically zoom and crop the image when you copy it. Obviously this isn't ideal (even if it were possible) as you'd be trimming the sides off the picture (ie 33% of it). However if you game and/or watch a lot of TV series, then the 16:9 (or rather 16:10) AR would mean it would be mostly filled with image.
