Example: "War of the Worlds" DVD: "1.85 Theatrical Aspect ratio Enhanced for Widescreen TVs"

- for sw dvd players, you have to "ignore ratio" for 1.85:1 movies -

- otherwise, player will attempt to play it at 16:9 [1.78:1] -

but in both cases, the source video remains as 720x480:

NOTES:

Another example, comparison of 1.85 (888x480) vs. 16:9 (853x480):

1.85:1 (waroftheworlds_480x888_ex2.jpg)
