Anamorphic 4K UltraWide Cinema – taking home theater beyond flat panels and commercial theaters


Do you want the big screen experience for movies and TV? Now you can have it all. Panamorph’s patented new Paladin DCR lens system works with the anamorphic upconversion modes now incorporated into all new Sony and JVC 4K/4096 projectors, “repurposing” unused black letterbox bars to deliver 2.6 million more pixels than any 4K/UHD flat panel and 1.7 million more pixels than even non-anamorphic commercial theaters when showing the 2.4:1 UltraWide cinema aspect ratio of more than 80% of today’s most popular movies. And all those additional pixels don’t just give you the highest possible clarity, they also give you up to 38% more brightness beyond standard UHD letterbox projection to give you the best big screen cinema experience possible. All that plus modes to watch TV content in the standard format or even while filling your full cinema format screen.
