    Pretty cool. I wonder how much zoom control it has. Also as most content (besides movies) is not that wide you'll just end up with black bars on the sides most of the time any way. If you're that much of a film fan I would just get a great projection system.

    Awesome ad. Shot on location in Prague, VFX done by a company, redrum, in Sweden. All people are real, just standing still. And I guess there's several chunks of material put together to look seamless.

    The ad is fantastic but I don't like the TV, it's way too wide for comfort.

    Actually I like the aspect ratio. Got the same little tingle on my neck when I saw 16:9 for the first time back in '88.

    It's that annoying Ambient light crap I can't stand. Who the F is using that crap anyway? Does anyone at home really turn on the ambient light? It is distracting as all #ell.

    Good gravy. We'll never get rid of the black bars.

    I'd be interested!
    This is obviously for watching movies not old episodes of Andy Griffith.
    I wonder why 21:9 and not 2:1 or 1.85:1 or some other widely used aspect ratio?
    Still pretty cool though!!
