Day 2 of CEDIA continued without a hitch, and while the show isn't nearly as stressful as CES, there's still a lot to cover for a relatively small venue (think bigger than IDF, but much smaller than CES).

He just wants to come in and play

Today we went through and covered most of the receiver companies (you'll see coverage on that tomorrow), went through and looked at the new high definition player announcements, some new TV introductions and finished off our 1080p projector coverage.

Mitsubishi UltraThin Frame LCD TVs

Toshiba's not the only company touting thin bezel televisions at this year's CEDIA. Mitsubishi was showing off their UltraThin Frame LCD TVs at their booth.

    I don't know much about projectors but, is it too difficult to manufacture a native 2.35:1 projector? This way only 16:9 and 4:3 movies would have black bars on each side. Imagine, a true 2538x1080 image... :-) Reply

    Well, there are 4K projectors, if you've got the input and the money. (Or you can just run two SXGA projectors on their sides, overlapping.)

    This is the first I've heard of the anamorphic business. I'm confused: given that there's no more data available to add pixels, why digitally scale up (removing some high frequency information in the process, unless there's something exceptionally clever going on) to fill the 1080 pixels of the image, then stick an additional anamorphic (expensive and complicated, and probably not quite as high quality as a "normal" lens) lens in front of the existing optical elements? What does this gain you that sticking a bog standard wide angle lens on the front of the projector (and putting a couple of bits of cardboard over the borders if your projector has a poor black point) doesn't?

    It just sounds like a really complicated and expensive way of making the image worse. Am I missing something?

    The last (bottom-most) picture on Page 7 appears to be upside down. Reply

    The projector could also be upside down and attached to a ceiling mount. Reply
