Explanation: система показа широкоэкранных фильмов на экране обычного телевизора
With Letter Box, wide-aspect images are reduced with black bars at top and bottom of the image for effective display on a 4:3 screen.
(2) Multi-aspect function
Unlike a tape, video CD or laserdisc, DVD titles are good for both 16:9 wide-aspect TVs and conventional 4:3 aspect-ratio sets.
DVD titles should be formatted in 16:9 wide aspect for view in a widescreen.
££Widescreen 16:9 TV: Wide mode
££Fullscreen 4:3 TV: Letter Box, Pan & Scan mode
Pan & Scan was designed as an alternative to the reduced image of Letter Box. With Pan & Scan, some side portions of wide-aspect images that are deemed not important are deleted to fit a 4:3 format. As a result, the same images can have totally different effects depending on the ability of the image editors.
