Digital Cinema Desktop Preview - Full-Screen

The video is scaled to maximize its size on the display. If the aspect ratio of the video
signal and the computer display do not match, the video on the display is letterboxed
(black on top and bottom) or pillarboxed (black on sides) as necessary. For example,
16:9 video shown on a 4:3 display is scaled until the width of the video matches the
width of the display, and the top and bottom are letterboxed.

 Pro: This format gives you the biggest picture possible and maintains the proper

aspect ratio.

 Con: Scaling artifacts may be noticeable when viewed up close.
