What Is Aspect Ratio?

The term aspect ratio as applied to TVs is very simply a ratio description of the proportional relationship between the width of an image and its height. All HD TVs available today offer a wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio which gives an image much closer to that seen at the movies.

CNET carries a useful aspect ration article that also explains our subject, but in a more easy to understand way than Wikipedia.
