A DVD labeled as "Widescreen Anamorphic" contains video that has the same frame size in pixels as traditional fullscreen video, but uses wider pixels. The shape of the pixels is called pixel aspect ratio and is encoded in the video stream for a DVD player to correctly identify the proportions of the video. If an anamorphic DVD video is played on standard 4:3 television without adjustment, the image will look horizontally squeezed.

answer 5
when applied to DVD manufacture, is a video process that horizontally squeezes a widescreen image so that it can be stored in a standard 4:3 aspect ratio DVD image frame. Compatible playback equipment can then re-expand the horizontal dimension to show the original widescreen image. In its current definition as a video term, it was originally devised for widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio television sets

answer 6
This is what I found on the web: An anamorphic DVD means that the original widescreen image of a movie or TV show has been compressed horizontally to fit within the 4:3 square video frame used on DVDs. The compressed image is stretched back out to the correct ratio by the disc player (otherwise people in the film would all look too tall and thin!).

Anamorphic widescreen DVDs have better image quality, because the entire video frame is used to store image data (there are more pixels used to represent the frames from the film).
There is more but this should satisify.
