Any updates on stock? I’m interested in a 4K unit for aspect ratio control as my BENQ W2700 has no lens memory , I have an anamorphic lens.

Hi Gordon would a cheaper lumagen solve the problem of the JVC X35 when i go to zoom out on my 2:35 screen i seem to have bleed over where the image goes over the screen.

What do you mean by bleed over? Are you saying that when you play 2.35:1 material you see active image information above and blow the screen area? or are you saying you can see the projected black bars lighting up the area above and below the screen?
I see active image information above and below, is this due to the JVCX35 Zoom ? only just noticed it over last few months, due to the fact looking for fault rather then enjoying it.

If you play 2.35:1 material on a 2.35:1 screen with the image zoomed to fit width f screen then your screen, and you see overspill top and bottom, then

1: Your screen is not 2.35:1

2: The content is not 235:1

3: There is some aspect control/scaling going on in the projector.

What happens when you play a 2.4:1 film? Does it fit the screen correctly? If it does then your answer is your screen is likely 2.4:1 not 2.35:1 Lumagen aspect ratio control in the current Pro range can make 2.35:! and 2.4:1 always fit height of either of those screen types. It will also auto detect 2.0:1, 2.2:1, 1.85:1 and 1.78::! and will make it fit within the height of a 2.35 or 2.4:! screen aspect. I do not think all those aspects are supported on older models though

Gordon may have answered this but theres another point to take in, Gordon please correct me if i get it wrong, firstly, dont zoom out your picture as you will loose 50% of your resolution. secondly if your using a 2:39.1 screen the lumagen will expand the picture to the correct ratio but you might find a slight streach to the screen , this is where an anamorphic lens comes in to expand the picture left and right.

Markie4TV: You lose zero resolution on 2.35:1 material on same aspect screen if you zoom out to fit the screen width. This is exactly the best scenario for sharpest most detailed image. if you don't zoom out the lens to fit screen width you can't physically make the image fit the width of the screen.

Anamorphic lenses can either expand or compress depending on design

The problem is your 16x9 screen , the black bars dictate that the movie is ultra wide , let’s say 21x9 . If you try and expand the picture vertically then everyone would be stretched and look thin, you could zoom out but you would loose a lot of the picture left and right. Not sure if the Lumagen would sort this out.

Cheers again for the other day Gordon. Not switched it on yet as not had time but appreciate the effort as usual & glad I found the owner of the disc!! Positive feedback about to be left

EDIT: well I would leave feedback but its not allowing me to select a thread from the drop-own randomly and its a required field. Any ideas?
