Is widesceen (aka shortscreen) fad over yet?

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by aloha.kakuikanu, Sep 8, 2006.

  1. Now that everybody got it, are't people started to get bored with
    shortsceen yet? Isn't it the time for TV industry to catch a new wave,
    and start marketing more screen area for the screen of the same
    diagonal size? In standard aspect ratio, of course!

    You don't even make sense.

    You would probably be happiest with a square screen.

    No, circular (as the original TV screens) because they maximize area
    per diagonal inch.

    ============================
    There is no "standard aspect ratio".
    Almost all movies are ether 2.35:1 (2.40:1) or 1.85:1.
    Watch the movie.

    The new 'standard aspect ratio' is 16:9

    Agreed, in many stores you are luck to find 4:3 screens anymore. They are as
    extinct as the dinosaur except in places like walmart.

    Long live 16:9
