The display resolution or display modes of a digital television, computer monitor or display device is the number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It can be an ambiguous term especially as the displayed resolution is controlled by different factors in cathode ray tube (CRT) displays, flat-panel displays (including liquid-crystal displays) and projection displays using fixed picture-element (pixel) arrays.
An example of pixel shape affecting "resolution" or perceived sharpness: displaying more information in a smaller area using a higher resolution makes the image much clearer or "sharper". However, most recent screen technologies are fixed at a certain resolution; making the resolution lower on these kinds of screens will greatly decrease sharpness, as an interpolation process is used to "fix" the non-native resolution input into the display's native resolution output.
While some CRT-based displays may use digital video processing that involves image scaling using memory arrays, ultimately "display resolution" in CRT-type displays is affected by different parameters such as spot size and focus, astigmatic effects in the display corners, the color phosphor pitch shadow mask (such as Trinitron) in color displays, and the video bandwidth.
One of the drawbacks of using a classic television is that the computer display resolution is higher than the television could decode. Chroma resolution for NTSC/PAL televisions are bandwidth-limited to a maximum 1.5 MHz, or approximately 160 pixels wide, which led to blurring of the color for 320- or 640-wide signals, and made text difficult to read (see example image below). Many users upgraded to higher-quality televisions with S-Video or RGBI inputs that helped eliminate chroma blur and produce more legible displays. The earliest, lowest cost solution to the chroma problem was offered in the Atari 2600 Video Computer System and the Apple II+, both of which offered the option to disable the color and view a legacy black-and-white signal. On the Commodore 64, the GEOS mirrored the Mac OS method of using black-and-white to improve readability.
When a computer display resolution is set higher than the physical screen resolution (native resolution), some video drivers make the virtual screen scrollable over the physical screen thus realizing a two dimensional virtual desktop with its viewport. Most LCD manufacturers do make note of the panel's native resolution as working in a non-native resolution on LCDs will result in a poorer image, due to dropping of pixels to make the image fit (when using DVI) or insufficient sampling of the analog signal (when using VGA connector). Few CRT manufacturers will quote the true native resolution, because CRTs are analog in nature and can vary their display from as low as 320 × 200 (emulation of older computers or game consoles) to as high as the internal board will allow, or the image becomes too detailed for the vacuum tube to recreate (i.e., analog blur). Thus, CRTs provide a variability in resolution that fixed resolution LCDs cannot provide.
Note: If you notice that your screen resolution has changed unexpectedly, it may be because your graphics drivers need an update. Check and update immediately for optimum results. You can go through Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update to see available updates for your Windows PC.
Hello everyone, I'm new here and was wondering if someone could help me out. I'm working on a film about my father that will be shown on his funeral (he is terminally ill and doesn't have long to go). Before I wanted to start editing my film I wanted to know the resolution of the beamer in the church, because it took so long however I couldn't wait any longer and had to get started on the film. I have made the sequence in Premiere Pro to match the footage, which is 1920X1080 HD. I have now however obtained the information that the screen resolution of the beamer in the church is 1024X768. Considering I can't change the sequence settings without starting over again (unless there is a way I don't know about?), is it going to give me trouble to play a 1920X1080 film on a 1024X768 screen? Will it cut things off?Obviously I will test the film if I get the chance, I just wanted to know if it is definitely going to be a problem or not before I continue editing the film. Thank you!
Maybe setup a new comp with a 1024x768 project and then load you media into it, this will give you an idea of what it will look like. You might have to re-size but I think what ever you do it will end up looking a bit squashed.
If you want to crop the image to totally fill the frame, render your project at 1920x1080 then import the render into a new 1024x768 project. You can drop the rendered file on the Editor Timeline, then right-click the file on the timeline and select "Scale to Height." Now, this will chop off the left and right edges of the image, so you can use the Position properties of the clip to slide things sideways. You'll have to use the razor tool to split the clip each time you want to change framing.
It's the player software that's important here not the projector and I don't know of any player software that won't scale down properly. Because 1024 x 768 has a 4:3 aspect ratio your video will be a letterbox projection on the screen but there's no good way around that except to start from scratch with a 4:3 project.
There's a whole bunch of different worship software packages so I can't give you any specific advice on using the software but if you want to hedge your bet a little you could render out to 1280 x 720 without distorting your 1080p project. The lower resolution will make it a little easier on whatever ends actually playing your final output.
16:9 into 4:3 will give you black bars or crop the image (could go either way) unless you control it yourself.Create a 1024x768 project and drag your footage into it and see what it looks like. You'll need to scale it down. Then go through and see what might get lost with side cropping and whether you can get away with some black bars top and bottom. You might find that resizing it slightly and adding effectively 'half height' bars top and bottom is the least worst solution: some things got partially clipped off the sides, but the bars weren't too obtrusive. If necessary, change it for different scenes, or "pan and scan" across wider sections that you don't want bars above/below and don't want to lose any off the sides either. That might work better for static images.You could also put something like a blurred, expanded version of the video behind it to show in the 'bars' area, like TV companies have to do when they're sent mobile phone footage that's been filmed vertically, although they put the blurred section on the left and right sides.
This situation is going to result in a letterbox projection without having to do anything. Whatever is connected to the projector is going to be locked to the native resolution of the projector, 1024 x 768. That means even if you have a UHD 16:9 system once it's connected to the projector it's going to default everything to 1024 x 768 or even less. Historically Macs like to go all the way down to 800 x 600. At this point any software player I've ever used, and over 17 years of AV production work that's a bunch, will play 16:9 content full screen by letterboxing top and bottom.
Yes you can override that behavior in many cases but that either never happens in the real world or it's handled in such a way as to not distort or chop anything off. If you are connected directly to the projector and try to force a non-native wide screen resolution then you're relying on the scaling abilities of the projector which usually = rubbish and severely reduces the available projection area. What's the point of having a 16' x 12' screen if you're going to limit yourself to using just the middle third? Not going to happen especially in a place of worship where it's a fixed installation.
The other way to handle it involves using a format converter. Unlike the projector, these have outstanding scaling abilities. The output will be set to the native projector resolution and they'll scale any input to match the output without distortion or cutting anything off.
Remember to replace "VGA-1" with the display you want to fix (in my case, "DP-1", which I made the default). After that, on Display Settings, you may be able to choose the 1920x1080 resolution on your display (as long as it supports it).
Projector resolution is an important feature when choosing the right device for your needs. Resolution describes how clear a projected image will be based on how many pixels can be displayed on a given space. Common resolutions range from SVGA at 800 x 600 pixels up to 4K UHD with 3840 x 2160.
Another term commonly associated with projector resolutions is the aspect ratio. This is defined as the ratio between the image width and height. The three most common aspect ratios in the projector space are 4:3, 16:10, and 16:9.
The most common aspect ratio for content in home theater projectors settings (e.g. cable/satellite feeds, streaming content, etc.) is 16:9. That in mind, 1080p and 4k UHD are the two resolutions home users should consider. A few examples of projectors for home use include the X10-4K, PX727-4K, and PX747-4K.
Now that you know how to choose the right resolution for your projector, now you can easily find the right projector for your home or business. Or check out the video below for a handly little anywhere projector.
Note: The different inputs for your TV or monitor may have different allowable resolutions and scanrates. For example, some Sony TVs will not allow 1920x1080 at 50 Hz via the VGA connector, but will allow it via the HDMI input.
In a CCTV application you will have many cameras with different resolutions but usually only one recording device. So make sure that the recording equipment you choose has at least the resolution capability of your highest resolution camera. Also, make sure it has enough hard drive space to record all of your cameras for a reasonable period of time given your application. Image resolution is most crucial when something happens and you need to playback that video. If you need to zoom in on a piece of video, the quality of that zoomed in image depends on the recorded resolution. So configure each channel of the DVR separately to record at the highest resolution that matches the camera. 2b1af7f3a8
