General term for form of film presentation in which the picture shown has an aspect ratio greater than 1'33:1.
16:9 picture format as in cinemas.
A term given to picture displays with a wider aspect ratio than NTSC 4:3. Digital HDTV or SDTV is referred to as "16:9 wide screen." Most motion pictures also have a 16:9 wide screen aspect ratio. Most Digital TVs have a screen that is wider than it is tall (if a Digital TV screen is nine inches high, it's 16 inches wide.) When watching a show recorded in the wide screen format on a Digital TV, viewers see more of the movie, while when viewing wide screen format on an analog TV, cropped edges are evident
a projection screen that is much wider than it is high
Refers to a video program whose picture has a wider aspect ratio than 4:3.
Any video software or hardware which has an aspect ratio wider than 4:3 (which is the typical television ratio). Wide screen formats are meant to reproduce the original aspect ratio of a movie as viewed in a theater.
The term used to describe a screen that has an aspect ratio that is wider then the NTSC 4:3 ratio. Most HDTVs and EDTVs have an aspect ratio of 16:9 as do most major motion pictures. When motion pictures are converted to NTSC television the image is squeezed and cropped so it will fit the smaller, 4:3 screen.
Watch digitally mastered movies on the go in 16:9 wide screen mode. See all the detail the movie has to offer.
