View Full Version : Don't know what Resolution to use with Projector

01-14-2015, 09:16 AM
I'm creating an ad that will be projected. My customer is using a PowerLite W16 3D WXGA 3LCD Projector (http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Product.do?sku=V11H493020)

My concern is, I really don't know what resolution to use. I usually deliver all my work in FULL HD or 4K, but I'm not really sure I understand how projectors work.

What happens if I send the video in FULL HD (1920x1080)? Will it show clipped or will I get the whole picture? Should I better render at 1280x800 to avoid problems?

Native resolution is 1280 x 800 (1.6 aspect) which should be fine for rendering. Since it's a TFT Active Matrix use sRGB color space. The projector does the resize so feed it the native resolution.
