# EZDOK & Ultra Wide Screen Virtual Cockpit Zoom?

## Recommended Posts

Hi!

So I got a new ultra wide screen that is 2560 x 1080 pixels. I am using EZDOK and I wanted to get inputs on what everyone thought would be the best VC zoom level. I am currently using 0.70.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Clement

If you want it life-sized,

`z = 34 / (2 x atan(h / 2d))`

where h is the physical height of the display and d is the distance from the display to your eye. This assumes you have WideViewAspect ON. If it's OFF, multiply the result by 2560/1080. (Make sure your calculator is set for degrees).

Hi

Have mine set to .50

looks pretty good to me.

Hi! Thanks

Not sure I follow. Could you please help me a bit more? Yes, WideView is checked. Thanks!

Hi! Thanks

I'm a nit lost here. Could you please help me a bit more? Yes, WideView is checked. Thanks!

You need to measure the height of the screen (just the visible area) and how far away you sit from it. You then plug these numbers into this formula and it tells you the zoom factor. 'atan' is a trig function you will find on your calculator (if you're using the Windows 7 Calc program you need to be set to 'scientific' mode, then press 'inv' then 'tan-1' to get this function).

If you are still struggling, just post the two measurements here.
