Philips releases 21:9 ratio screen

Register Hardware reports: [edited]

The Philips TV is the first to offer a 21:9 aspect ratio. You’ll get a 52in viewing area and Philips’ Ambilight system that projects light onto the wall behind the telly coloured to complement the image on the screen.

Price: £3535.

...This appears to be completely pointless, as far as I can see. Everything broadcasts, is writted to DVD on, and generally plays in either 16:9, or 4:3, right? So having a 29:1 either horribly distorts everything, or leaves you with huge areas of unused space...
