I spotted this and had to share. It's a personal pet hate of mine when you watch tv and get any black barring. I mean come on, there is no reason why we can't operate to a universal standard (cinema wide-screen aspect ratio being my personal preference). Well it looks like finally someone has a solution to deal with two of the formats in use. Paris based company Studio FRST, has developed this Double Aspect Ratio 16943 concept, which can handle two viewing formats: a 16:9 format for cinema and 4:3 for television with zero black barring. Sweet.
