As an industry outsider, I assumed that the 4:3 format was surely
vaporizing as fast as film. No one (at least in the USA) watches
media in 4:3 format any more except for on older cell phones, Home
Shopping Network, and YouTube content produced with cheap cameras or
cell phones. The value is so low I assumed that it would be relegated
to automatic conversion.
There is continued value to 16/9 since many providers are unwilling to
transmit content in what appears to be a letterbox format. They would
rather crop (or even squish) wider content to fit 16/9. I assumed
that wide content would be shot so that it would be easily scaled and
cropped to 16/9 without "pan & scan".
