NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


Academy ratio

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

Academy ratio is an aspect ratio of 1.37:1 used for films. It was first used in 1928, became the standard approved by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1932, and was used for the majority of films made until 1952. Academy ratio became obsolete with the advent of widescreen in the 1950s.
