Re: 16:9 Screen Vs. 2.37:1 CIH Screen

The cheapest one that I know of would be the Lumagen Video processor..
You should be able to pick one up for less than $900.00..

OK and for projectors who do not have a scaler for HD, is there a cheep video processor to do do?
Your signature suggests that you have not yet bought the Epson, so may I suggest you look at another projector that does offer scaling for HD?

There is not projector with similar quality and black level at its price delivered here in Egypt. I really like it and I already paid for it, just waiting, should be here mid march.

That is a good price, but it does not accept 1080p I think

Is there any quality improvement from a video processor? Rather than just doing VS thing?

If you spend money on them like the Realto (spelling ?), then yes...

To get 1080p you will have to go to the Vision HDP model, at about $1200.00..

You would save yourself a lot of extra expense if you went for a projector that has VS as Mark suggested..
The Epson is a good projector, but there are other excellent projectors that have VS..

Interesting add for the Marantz

I do notice there is no mention of the need for an anamorphic lens, but at least it represents a plug and play solution for CIH...

Re: 16:9 Screen Vs. 2.37:1 CIH Screen

not entirely related to this thread, as I don't have an anamorphic lens, but I recently replaced my screen with a DIY 2.4:1 screen

for normal 16x9 source material (such as an xbox game) I have black bars on the left and right.
a nice bonus I hadn't thought about was that the mind/eyes don't notice the black bars on the left and right nearly as much as they do top and bottom.
I think this is because when the projector is zoomed to project a 16:9 image, there is no light spill onto the 2.4:1 screen on either side.

for wide screen movies in the 2.4:1 range, I zoom the projector lens and the movie fills the screen perfectly.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

Everyone who's seen it thinks it's fantastic!
