The video out fills the entire width of a 4:3 aspect ratio frame, with only the black letterbox borders top and bottom. What ever program you are using to display the image, it has to be displaying the letter boxed 4:3AR image in a new 16:9AR ratio frame sized so the height of the 4:3AR image fill the full height of the 16:9 AR frame (if that makes any sense to you. This is not the camera output that is adding the side black borders.

FWIW, there are MANY who actually like the 4:3 letter-boxed display since they can use tha blank space to clearly see other flight data being overlayed on the video screen in that space from other on-board sensors, like air speed, altitude, heading, GPS coordinates, etc. etc.

So everyone cannot be appeased by what the camera is doing. It is what it is, and I don't think it can be changed with FW anyway, so I'd suggest trying to get used to it.
