Barco is the only manufacturer in the world that offer true CinemaScope projectors for the residential market. Our CinemaScope technology have a unique automatic aspect ratio detection function.
It will analyze the incoming source and detect the aspect ratio which we call "Content Aspect Ratio" and automatically scale the image to fit the 2560x1080 or 5120x2160 resolution depending on model and of course change back to 16:9 (1920x1080/3840x2160 depending on model) if you have content in that format.
It will also change aspect ratio when a scope format movie has a menu’s outside the active picture frame. You can also switch manually between the different formats. It also allows for manually setting the aspect ratio you would like to use.
