Quick Reference

In television, a 16:9 picture that is filmed by being electronically squeezed along the horizontal axis into a 12:9 (4 x 3) frame and expanded using an aspect-ratio converter. This method utilizes the full height of the image and thus all the available TV lines (unlike letterboxing) and it is how video footage has been transmitted for showing on standard definition widescreen televisions since the 1990s.
