[LG webOS TV] Optimize viewing by selecting most appropriate

TV aspect ratio



function Aspect Ratio setting options


          home ► settings  advanced setting Picture Aspect Ratio



             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



             Just Scan

             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).


             Full Wide

                 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.


             Set by Programme / Original

             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.


             Cinema Zoom

             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.
