[Tig] 2.55 dimensions

Hi,

Does anyone happen to have any historical knowledge or documentation regarding the specific dimensions of the early CinemaScope 2.55 format? For example, according to RP40 the size of an anamorphic 2.39 image is 0.690 in. x 0.825 in., within the Academy frame. But the 2.55 aspect ratio was used before the implementation of optical sound so it exposed more of the frame width, and had a different center, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever come across the numerical formula of that particular format. Was there ever a framing chart for that, for projector line-up?

Thanks,

DB
