Letterbox

Letterbox.

Letterboxing is the practice of transferring film shot in a widescreenaspect ratio to standard-width video formats while preserving the film’s original aspect ratio. The resulting videographic image has mattes (black bars) above and below it; these mattes are part of the image (i.e., of each frame of the video signal). LTBX is the identifying abbreviation for films and images so formatted. The term refers to the shape of a letter box, a slot in a wall or door through which mail is delivered, being rectangular and wider than it is high.

Well, thanks Wikipedia.

 Much better.

I’m so sorry, I wasn’t at all inspired by this prompt. What would you do with it? Let me know…

  1. J’aurais écris une vraie lettre, je l’aurais envoyé par la poste, et j’aurais demandé à la personne d’écrire un post sur la lettre qu’elle a reçue. Mais tu sais quoi, j’adore de toute façon lire ton blogue comme il est 🙂
