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
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.
