I have been doing some reading and I came across this little tidbit of information that I found interesting: Source Material Note that the widest theatrical aspect ratio was 2.76:1. This being the case, I wonder if we will see in the next year or two a 2.76:1 Super Widescreen High-Definition Television for sale in the market? I find it rather odd that the current 'Widescreen' HDTVs out there can't accommodate a true widescreen picture with its current 1.77:1 (16 x 9) format. I wonder why companies like Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba did not begin producing the correct 2.76:1 aspect ratio sets from the beginning? The way it is now, I STILL get black bars on the top and bottom of some of my Widescreen movies on my current 46" Widescreen Hitachi. Would it not have made sense to make the wider aspect ratio sets that could accommodate ALL of the picture data when you are watching a movie? I look at it this way, you can always watch movies smaller than Ben Hur on this type of set. But if you happened to be in the mood to watch Mr. Heston in this epic, then you could watch it the way it was meant to be—in a screen-filled, resolution rich format that fills your entire viewing area. Thoughts?
