Theater Wide Modes
<< Back to Miscellaneous Page
The Toshiba TW56X81 and TW65X81 (and I believe the TW40) come with a number of viewing
modes: Normal Mode which is the regular NTSC TV size of 4x9; Full Mode which is
widescreen (16x9) used for Anamorphic DVDs; and three Theater Wide Modes (TW1, TW2, and
TW1 maintains the central images close to their normal proportions while
the left and right edges are stretched.
TW2 zooms the whole image to retains its true aspect, but some of the
image on the top and bottom are lost.
TW3 stretches the whole image uniformly but some parts of the tops and
bottom are slightly lost. Horizontal stretch is greater than that in TW1.
