RE: BBC Delivery Standards

Ah, Dominic, but with a little cropping and a little letterboxing,
you tick off both sets of complainers rather than neither....  ;-)

The fundamental issue is composition of the frame.  No constant
one-size-fits-all approach can ever work as well as one that allows
for some adjustment.  Of the variable positioning schemes, the best
results and easiest application are found with tilt-and-scan.

We actually tested a variant that used something similar to 14x9, but
with a smaller headroom compromise, and more on the bottom.  It, too,
failed miserably on some very straightforward storytelling shots.  I
can show you the tests if you like.
