Quick Reference

(film) A technique for producing widescreen images using two distorting lenses: one in the camera that squeezes the horizontal axis of image as it is being filmed; the other in the projector that expands it as the film is being projected. This technique allowed for widescreen films to be shot cheaply using standard 35-mm equipment. Standard definition 16:9 television uses a digital anamorphic process rather than a lens.
