Widescreen pictures are those that are exhibited in a set of aspect ratios (the width-to-height ratio of an image) that are common in cinema, television, and computer screens. Any film picture having a width-to-height aspect ratio higher than the conventional 1.37:1 Academy aspect ratio produced by 35 mm film is referred to as a widescreen picture.

The initial broadcast screen ratio for television was 4:3 fullscreen (1.33:1). 16:9 (1.78:1) widescreen TV displays were more popular throughout the 1990s and the early 2000s, at varied rates in different countries. They’re usually paired with high-definition television (HDTV) receivers, as well as standard-definition (SD) DVD players and other digital television sources.

Aspect ratios greater than 4:3 are referred to as widescreen on computer monitors. Previously, widescreen computer screens were built in a 16:10 aspect ratio (for example, 1680×1050), but currently they are commonly 16:9. (e.g. 1600×900).

The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Fight was the first film to employ widescreen (1897). With a running time of 100 minutes, this was not only the longest film ever made, but it was also the first widescreen film, filmed on 63 mm Eastman material with five perforations per frame.

Widescreen was initially widely employed in the late 1920s in various short films and newsreels, as well as feature films, such as Abel Gance’s Napoleon (1927), which had a closing widescreen sequence in what Gance dubbed Polyvision. Twentieth Century-Fox adapted Claude Autant-picture Lara’s Pour construire un feu (To Build a Fire, 1928) in the early Henri Chretien widescreen method into CinemaScope in 1952.
