Region of Interest (ROI)
Up-Conversion Hardware 10-bit
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 fullscreen
Zoom Wide: Results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting will introduce a small aspect ratio change
Down-Conversion Hardware 10-bit
Anamorphic: fullscreen
Letterbox: Image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
Crop: Image is cropped to fit video output format
Aspect Ratio Conversion SD to SD
Letterbox: Transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
H Crop: Produces a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
SD Pillarbox: Produces an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
V Crop: Transforms SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image
