An Intro to the New Home Cinema Format


4K UltraWide brings the true movie experience home with up to 1.7 million pixels more than commercial theaters.

Think of all the best movies you’ve experienced in commercial theaters in your lifetime. Now – in your own dedicated home theater – should those movies be your largest, most dramatic experience or are you ok watching them smaller than what’s on TV?

For over 50 years directors have been framing 80% of the most popular movies to fit the large UltraWide 2.4:1 cinema format of commercial theaters. That format is wider than the 16:9 (1.78:1) format of today’s large 4K large flat panel TVs and projectors. That means those movies have to be squeezed down between black bars to make them fit. And that means you’re losing millions of pixels of valuable display performance. Today you don’t have to waste that performance. Today you have a choice.
