A resolution with 21:9 future?

A resolution with 21:9 future?

The 21:9 reappeared this year at IFA in Berlin with three representatives: An LG monitor , a TV of the same brand and a Toshiba notebook , widescreen stretched to incorporate at its best. U.S. firm also announced a TV in this format this year. However, this same 2012, announced that discontinued making your 21:9 TV launched in 2009 . The reason? The low demand.

So where does the 21:9 and what we use?

The idea of this resolution is to display content at 2560 X 1080 (compared to a 1920 X 1080 16:9), designed to deliver movies shot in CinemaScope or modern anamorphic format. In simple, this format is used to record films shown in the cinema.

Thus, if you manage to get a movie in its original format (as 2.35.1 or 2.40.1), you could see it without black bars at the top and bottom of the screen with a 21:9 TV. The downside is that the rest of the content will be seen with vertical black bars on either side of the screen.

With the latter in mind, it is easy to see why Philips cost him succeed with your TV. This category will probably not be offered to a niche of people interested in having a home theater, using a special TV special content. The price and limited availability also make it very accessible.

Laptops and monitors

This might work differently in the case of LG and laptop. Judging by the comments, the monitor had a very good reception among readers of Engadget, thinking it would be handy for those two monitors connected to your PC to work.

The monitor estila the same resolution 2560 x 1080 pixels that televisions, so that in addition to providing extra space to open many windows and programs, also to watch movies in format. Is 27 inches, so it may not be as comfortable as the models of 58 “TVs, but could be used this way too.

According to Reg Hardware , which could test the equipment, the screen can be divided into two or four parts even if it was more comfortable to work. So far no one knows the price and availability of this monitor, it has certainly piqued the curiosity.

More doubts awakens the proposal with a Toshiba in this format. It has a 14.4-inch screen with a resolution of 1,792 x 768 pixels, and apparently is also thought to play cinema style movies. It also gives more space to work horizontally across the screen, ideal for programs that use many columns, or to order windows next to each other.

However, this is a new way that has no sleeves or backpacks, for example, which could complicate the transport of its 1.5 kilos. The device is on sale in the U.S. for USD $ 1000, and remains the only one of its kind. It looks difficult to reach masificarse this style, contrary to what might happen with the monitors, where it could have more choice.
