The clarity of the image or video on the screen is determined by a projector's resolution.

Resolution is usually quoted in two numbers, such as "800 x 600," where the first number is the number of pixels from one side to another across the screen, and the second number refers to the number of pixels vertically from top to bottom.

 If a projector's native resolution is 1024 x 768 (XGA), that means that the number of physical pixels on the display is 1024 x 768. In some projector models, specifications show compatibility with higher resolutions.

SVGA offers 800 x 600 resolution.  SVGA will notgive you the resolution and clarity of XGA, so if you're planning on watching Lord of the Rings in high definition then SVGA is not for you.
