Envy’s auto aspect ratio (AR) detection has been the fastest in the industry for quite some time. But why stop there? So, they’re excited to share with you that Envy’s AR detection speed is now not only fast, but actually instant!
In a recent newsletter we asked, “What happens when you combine instant aspect ratio detection and black bar management with our non-linear stretch?” Well, for users who like NLS, they can now seamlessly fill their scope screen all the time, regardless of the native aspect ratio of the content.
The Envy’s instant AR detection is such an exciting and important development that Andrew Poole, Proprietor and Senior Calibrator with Home Theatre Engineering, created a video to explain what this all means and why it is the breakthrough he has been waiting for. Please click here or on the image below to play the video.
In Andrew’s video, he shows Envy’s instant AR detection and black bar management in action, and how it compares. He also demonstrates how Envy’s NLS+ can be used in conjunction with Envy’s instant AR detection to deliver a seamless, full screen, highly immersive experience.
For those in a hurry, here are some notable quotes from the video:
“For me, it’s [the Envy] one of the most existing products to come to our industry… This is a stunning piece of equipment and the more I know about it, the more I love it.”
“This incredible aspect ratio switching is revolutionary – it completely changed cinema watching for me.”
“It adjusts your aspect ratio exactly to fit your screen. And it works perfectly, and it works instantly.”
“It’s then applying its non-linear stretch, and it’s happening absolutely instantly – it’s imperceptible…. So quick that we can’t actually tell when those scene changes have taken place.”
“You can go either way – if you’re a purist you just watch the format change, and if you just want to see it big, well then you leave the non-linear stretch on.”
“It’s just phenomenal. It’s the most exciting thing I think I’ve seen in home theater in a very, very long time.”
“If you can get your hands on one, get one, it’s going to be the best step you’ll ever take in your home theater watching….”
