Anamorphic widescreen (also called Full height anamorphic) is a process by which a comparatively wide widescreen image is horizontally compressed to fit into a storage medium (photographic film or MPEG-2 Standard Definition frame, for example) with a narrower aspect ratio, reducing the horizontal resolution of the image while keeping its full original vertical resolution.
The aspect ratio of a geometric shape is the ratio of its sizes in different dimensions.
The aspect ratio of an image describes the proportional relationship between its width and its height.

Enhanced-definition television, or extended-definition television (EDTV) is an American Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) marketing shorthand term for certain digital television (DTV) formats and devices.
Frame rate (expressed in or fps) is the frequency (rate) at which consecutive images called frames appear on a display.
In television, a ghost is a replica of the transmitted image, offset in position, that is super-imposed on top of the main image.
In computing, hardware overlay, a type of video overlay, provides a method of rendering an image to a display screen with a dedicated memory buffer inside computer video hardware.
High-definition television (HDTV) is a television system providing an image resolution that is of substantially higher resolution than that of standard-definition television, either analog or digital.
Horizontal blanking interval refers to a part of the process of displaying images on a computer monitor or television screen via raster scanning.
Interlaced video is a technique for doubling the perceived frame rate of a video display without consuming extra bandwidth.
Intra-frame coding is used in video coding (compression).

In electronics and telecommunications, jitter is the deviation from true periodicity of a presumably periodic signal, often in relation to a reference clock signal.
Letterboxing is the practice of transferring film shot in a widescreen aspect ratio to standard-width video formats while preserving the film's original aspect ratio.
Macroblock is a processing unit in image and video compression formats based on linear block transforms, such as the discrete cosine transform (DCT).
The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a working group of authorities that was formed by ISO and IEC to set standards for audio and video compression and transmission.
In telecommunications and computer networks, multiplexing (sometimes contracted to muxing) is a method by which multiple analog or digital signals are combined into one signal over a shared medium.

Overscan is a behaviour in certain television sets, in which part of the input picture is shown outside of the visible bounds of the screen.
Phase Alternating Line (PAL) is a color encoding system for analogue television used in broadcast television systems in most countries broadcasting at 625-line / 50 field (25 frame) per second (576i).
Pan and scan is a method of adjusting widescreen film images so that they can be shown in fullscreen proportions of a standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio television screen, often cropping off the sides of the original widescreen image to focus on the composition's most important aspects.
The pillarbox effect occurs in widescreen video displays when black bars (mattes or masking) are placed on the sides of the image.
Pixel aspect ratio (often abbreviated PAR) is a mathematical ratio that describes how the width of a pixel in a digital image compares to the height of that pixel.
ITU-R Recommendation BT.601, more commonly known by the abbreviations Rec.
The refresh rate (most commonly the "vertical refresh rate", "vertical scan rate" for cathode ray tubes) is the number of times in a second that a display hardware updates its buffer.
Rendering or image synthesis is the automatic process of generating a photorealistic or non-photorealistic image from a 2D or 3D model (or models in what collectively could be called a scene file) by means of computer programs.
