Default PS3 DVD Wide Display settings?

Can someone explain the differences between Letter Box and Pan and Scan options under BD/DVD settings > DVD Wide Display for the PS3?
Thanks

Letterbox - Displays the film at it's original aspect ratio (4:3, 16:9, 2.35:1, etc.), and based on your display it will add black bars to the surrounding areas to make it fit. You will see the entire picture, but you may see black bars on either the top/bottom or the sides, depending on whether the movie is widescreen or full screen.

(Widescreen footage on a full screen display using letterboxing).


(Full screen footage on a widescreen display using letterboxing).

Pan & Scan - Displays the film so that it fits completely onto your screen. This option, however, cuts off the image at either the top/bottom or the sides (again depending on if its WS or FS footage) - you will lose some of the image but it will fill up the whole screen.

(2.35:1 footage cropped to various display ratios, including 16:9 (red box) and 4:3 (green box)).

Hope this helped!
