Projector Compatibllity and Viewing Modes

Sony VPL-XW5000ES

Lens Model: DCR-S3 (+ST/SST) or DCR+XM2

For multimedia projection on a 2.25:1 screen (no zooming is required for any mode and screen is always filled): Use 1.32x and V-Stretch for 2.4:1 content (this will show a 6.7% vertical stretch). Use 1.24x and V-Stretch for 2.0:1 content (no stretch but 5% top/bottom crop). Use Normal for 16:9 content to fill the screen with a 25% horizontal stretch or Squeeze without stretch but with black side bars in this case.

Sony VPL-XW6000ES, VPL-XW7000ES

Lens Model: DCR-S4 (+ST/SST) or DCR+XM2

For a 2.4:1 screen when movies are the primary content: Set Sony anamorphic lens setting to 1.24x. Set Aspect to V-Stretch for content greater than 2.0:1 (8% top/bottom crop of 2.0:1 streaming) or Squeeze (with black bars) or Normal for content at 2.0:1 or less. In Squeeze or Normal mode content must be zoomed down to avoid cropping top and bottom 3.3% of the image which will increase black side bars.

Sony VPL-VW5000ES, VPL-GTZ380

Lens Model: DCR+XM2

For a 2.4:1 screen, set Anamorphic Lens to 1.24x. Use V-Stretch for content 2.0:1 or greater or Squeeze or Normal for 2.0:1 or less. Also try Normal + 2.35:1 Zoom for filling a 2.4:1 screen with smaller content (this will crop 3% from top/bottom).
