Displays the image on screen within the confine of a 16:9 aspect ratio (also known as 1.78:1
picture format) making use of the entire screen as adopted for High Definition Digital Television
Displays the picture on screen in its fully integrated original 16:9 widescreen format size without
cutting away any of the edges (not subjected to overscanning unlike other widescreen aspect ratio
options) matching pixel for pixel when the video source supplies a 1920 x 1080 image resolution.
Most ideal option for Blue-ray players, digital game consoles and personal computers.
● Just Scan can be selected for DTV/HDMI/Component (720p or higher).
When TV receives a wide screen signal (generally in any other proportion than 1.78:1) it will let you
adjust the picture horizontally or vertically, in a linear proportion, to fully fill the entire screen.
4:3 and 14:9 video is supported in full screen without any video distortion through DTV input.

Alters screen aspect ratio between 4:3 and 16:9 depending on the incoming video signal format.
Displays the image on screen in an aspect ratio of 4:3 notably to accommodate Classic TV and
old black & white movies. Please note that the lateral black bars at both extremities are a necessary
evil to preserve image proportions on screen. Be forewarned that excessive use of this option will
produce uneven wear & tear across the screen whereas in time the center of the screen will appear
washed out compared to the sides.
Enlarges the image to match the screen width. The top and bottom portions of the video screen may
not be cut off. May distort appearances of objects and persons appearing on screen stretching them
or having them appear short and stubby.
Resizes any picture featuring cinemascope ratio of 2.35:1 or 2.50:1 extra widescreen format without
image distortion maintaining proportion accuracy. In doing so, viewer will rid screen of top & bottom
black bars but will also suppress parts of the image at the far left and far right.
● The configurable items differ depending on model or country.
● Viewing content from an external device or, for an extended period of time, having fixed text such as
the program name or using an aspect ratio of 4:3 may result in uneven wear & tear.
● Depending on the input signal, available screen size options may be different.
● In the HDMI-PC mode, you can only select 4:3, 16:9 or Just Scan aspect ratio options.
