Highly versatile, Cine-Digitar 1.33x Anamorphic Lenses can also expand 4:3 (standard television) images to a 16:9 (HDTV) aspect ratio. For high-definition video that has been down-converted (squeezed) to standard-definition, the 1.33x Anamorphic Lens can project the image at the original HD aspect ratio with absolutely no distortion of the image’s geometry.
