Resolution Cheat Sheet – RTR Tech Tip

Are you struggling to connect your HD output from your laptop into the XGA input on your projector and wonder why your images are stretched or skewed? Well the below reference chart may come in handy, remember its always best to try and keep your output resolution as close to the native resolution of your display (projector/LCD/etc).

For example in basic terms this means if you have a widescreen (16:9 or 16:10) output from a laptop but your projector or screen runs at a native resolution in 4:3 format the projector is going to have to process your image to fit the screen reducing the image quality.

A very common situation that is worth mentioning is if you have a projector running native WXGA (1280×800 16:10) rather than feeding it the highest output possible (most likely Full HD 1920×1080 16:9) the closest resolution could be HD 1280×720 resulting in less adjustments/processing inside the projector.

Remember the aim of the game is to keep the source resolution as close as possible to the output resolution.



The below list of standard resolutions may also come in handy to identify your nearest resolution.


640 x 480 (VGA)

800 x 600 (SVGA)

1024 x 768 (XGA)

1280 x 960 (SXGA)


1280 x 720 (HD TV)

1920 x 1080 (FULL HD TV)

3840 X 2160 (Ultra HD TV)


1280×800 (WXGA)

Interactive Projection – Exciting use of technology

When it comes to technology, don’t close your eyes. You might miss something.

A new technology has been introduced to the market that is poised to change the way we interact with digital media. Meet the interactive projector.

An interactive projector combines the ability to project a large image onto virtually any surface with the advanced technology of an interactive whiteboard. It has been considered a game-changer for several industries, especially the education and marketing segments.

For marketing professionals, it’s a no brainier. Picture this. You are sitting in the waiting room of your doctor’s office with a fussy child. On the floor is an image of a koi pond, with fish swimming by. You point it out to your child, who reaches down to touch it and the water ripples. It’s instantly mesmerizing and engaging. Then your message/brand appears from the murky depths for all eyes to see. And this scenario can play out on any floor, or wall in any waiting room or lobby for any industry across the globe.

As far as educational tools are concerned, this technology has the potential to change the way teachers and students communicate and interact altogether. In the past, educators were limited on what interactive whiteboards could be purchased based on price, size, and available space. Those in school systems who lack adequate funding may not be able to afford to purchase multiple whiteboards for different uses. However, with interactive projection, the entire projection area is now interactive. This space can be as large or as small as the educator needs it to be. It can be every size whiteboard it needs to be with just one piece of equipment.

The interactive projector has the ability to reach audiences, both old and new, in a fresh and exciting new way. RTR have interactive options for short term rental or permanent install for more information about the benefits of using interactive projectors in your business, please Call: 03 9381 0530
