Projector Compatibility Guide

Projector Panamorph Mode Names refer to aspect modes of each projector brand that correspond to Panamorph projector modes described in the Panamorph Demo Theater. The two anamorphic lens modes (and an “off” or “stretch” mode) should ultimately be programmed by your custom home theater installer into a button on a universal remote to cycle between the three modes for any content. Note: International versions of the projector models shown below are not always listed.
