Anamorphic cinematography refers to the Greek term "morphic" as in form or shape while "Ana," in this case, implies "new." An anamorphic lens "shapes anew" a particular image. Both the camera and projector must use the anamorphic lens because when the image is photographed the horizontal axis "alone" of the image is condensed so that the scene can pass through the lens and make its image on the comparatively narrow width of the film.
