Up-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: full-screen
  • Pillar box 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars
  • Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
  • Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill full screen
  • Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change

Down-conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: full-screen
  • Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
  • Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size

  • 1080i to 720P
  • 720P to 1080i
