Another Pro D&A Question
by kiwifilm on Apr 21, 2002 at 4:46:56 am
We have read elsewhere in this list that it is possible to output 16:9 anamorphic via the HD BoB at the same time as sending out a letterbox 4:3 version via the analog BoB.
I am now curious as to whether it is possible to send 16:9 anamorphic and 4:3 letterbox simulatenously out via the Pro D&A BoB?
At this stage I can only find the anamorphic vs letterbox option on the tether ports in CineTarga control panel. Is this a function of the tether ports only and thus requires 2 BoBs, or can this be acheived via the Pro D&A BoB???

The HD BOB produces a true 16:9 not an anamorphic 16:9. Only the downconverted SD output is switchable between anamorphic (squeezed) and letterboxed. It doesn't matter which (or how many) SD BOB's you are using.
P.S. If SD media is squeezed (anamorphic) then the upconverted output on the HD BOB will be squeezed too (not full 16:9).
