    Digitized Images Projection on 16:9 vs 4:3

    We have installed 16:9 projectors across our facilities, folks come in with 4:3 formatted images, which distort when being projected. Has anyone one come across this and is there a simple solution to projecting the 4:3 image correctly on a 16:9 projector?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are there any settings on the 16:9 projectors to project a cropped format of 4:3?

    This is really a 2 step process that is rather obvious but no quick fix.

    Those creating Power Point Presentations need to be aware of this situation. They need to create their presentation with a widescreen computer monitor so that they will know what it will look like on a 16:9 screen. Side note: colorimetery of an lcd monitor and projector are different so don't be surprise if someone complains about that too.

    There is really no choice but to project the created 4:3 image on a 16:9 screen. The projector should have the ability to resize the image properly so that you'll have gray (or black) side pillars.

    Even if you adjust for resolution size, the fonts and images will still be distorted.
