Subtitle Management with Scope Screens

We recently covered how our non-linear stretch (NLS+) platform makes it easy to fill your entire screen, regardless of its aspect ratio (AR) and the AR of the content. In case you are not familiar, a "scope" screen generally refers to a screen that is wider than the standard HDTV 16:9 aspect ratio.

In today's newsletter, we're changing gears a bit to answer a related question that often comes up about subtitles - specifically how to handle subtitles within the black bars in scope movies.

Understanding the Problem

Subtitles within the black bars of a scope movie are a problem, because when using a scope screen to watch a scope movie (e.g. watching a 2.40 AR movie on a 2.40 screen), the projector is usually zoomed so that the movie fills the entire screen, like this:

12 Best Home Security Systems for Apartment Dwellers

Why you need a home security system

Apartment dwellers sometimes wonder if they need a security system. On the one hand, the close proximity of fellow residents can provide a level of protection. While it’s great to have close neighbors looking out for one another, apartments are also be vulnerable to break-ins, thefts, and vandalism, so a home alarm system can be added precaution. Some security systems can let you see who even goes near your apartment (delivery people, for example) and as a bonus, let you keep an eye on your pets from a distance.

Apartment residents have different needs and concerns than homeowners when shopping for home security systems. Officer James Banta, Home Security & Safety Expert at SecurityNerd.com, says the first thing you need to consider is whether your apartment building has rules related to installing a security system or drilling through walls. He recommends checking with the apartment management office or condo/townhouse board before you buy anything to find out if there are any rules related to this sort of thing. “You don’t want to lose your security deposit because you drilled through walls when you aren’t allowed to,” he explains. Once you have that information, you can get to work finding the best home security system for your apartment. Scroll on for some of the best choices on the market. And look out for the signs that a burglar is targeting your home.
