What does “WS” mean?

Posted on July 16, 2008. Filed under: Definitions | Tags: |

“WS” is an aspect ratio tag, which simply means WideScreen, or “letterbox”. These look good on wider screens, but can look stupid on squarer monitors, as they cut off so much screen above and below the image.

The other aspect ratio tag is “FS” – FullScreen.

They do not cut off images they add more to be seen on the lateral portions of the screen. A full screen showing crops and removes the lateral portions to give a full screen effect . In the process of “filling the screen ” there removing images the director intended you to see. All movies shoulkd be seen in ws or wide screen as the director intended
