Fast and easy guide to resolution.
You hear the term resolution anytime you are looking for a display device. But what does it mean? In short, resolution is the number of pixels, from side to side and top to bottom, which make up your image. For example, an SVGA projector has 800 pixels from side to side and 600 pixels from top to bottom for a total of 480,000 pixels. More pixels means a higher 'pixel density' and a crisper image. Below are two charts with the most common resolutions and their pixel densities.
So how do you know how many pixels are right for you?
For some applications, like projecting spreadsheets or documents, you need to have a higher pixel density. For other applications, like simple PowerPoint® presentations, you do not.
