We love math so you don't have to! Check out these handy excel calculators we've made. And if you have any requests drop us a line! We will see what we can whip up.
Widescreen Blend Calc
There are many widescreen calculators out there, but none like this. It provides pixel counts for the Spyder, screen measurements for projection and even calculates resolution loss when scaling. And it prints out into a handy packet that separates out into pages that you can hand off to your graphics Op, Spyder Op, and Projectionist! Neat! Not to mention those beautiful visualizations! We take pride in this calculator. Make sure you enable Macros to get access to all the features!
Camera FOV Calc
Calculate your field of view with broadcast sports lenses! There are lots of FOV calcs out there for still cameras, but few use the lens measuring system that we Broadcast cameras. Added Bonus: it even has an extender option and will tell you the light loss the extender causes! Sweet. This is our favorite calculator because the math behind it is so fun. Who doesn't love some trig?
Aspect Ratio Crop Calc
This is a simple calculator for Pillar Boxing and Letterboxing. Need to crop out those nasty black pixels for a PiP? This calculator will tell you exactly how much to crop out.
