    Default Choosing: WS Resolutions, Aspect Ratios, Screen Sizes & Viewing Distance

    Choosing WS Resolutions, Aspect Ratios, Screen Sizes & Viewing Distance

    Part I - RESOLUTIONS

    Part II - SCREEN SIZE COMPARISONS

    Part III - DISPLAY CLASS NAMES

    Part IV - Calculate Proper Viewing Distance From Screen

    Part I - RESOLUTIONS

    TIP:
    When experimenting with resolutions, while searching for possible performance solutions.
    I.E 1280x1024 = 1.310MP & 1440x900 = 1.296MP.
    Therefore, if you find acceptable results for a video card &/or PC monitor/HDTV at 1280x1024, then you might very well have comparible results at 1440x900.
    So by using the RATIO FORMULA & DECIMAL CONVERSION below any number close to the decimal for the WS ratio you want, should work pretty well.


    The list is sorted by the RIGHT side resolution number WWW X HHHH

    RESOLUTION_____ASPECT RATIO

    640x400_____________16:10
    720X480_____________15:10
    848X480_____________16:9
    852X480_____________16:10
    856X480_____________16:10
    840X525_____________16:10
    960X540_____________16:9
    960X600_____________16:10
    1280X720____________16:9
    1280X768____________15:10
    1360X768____________16:9
    1366X768____________16:9 (Viewsonic & DiBoss 32" LCDs)
    1368X768____________16:9
    1280X800____________16:10
    1440X900____________16:10
    1440X960____________15:10
    1800X960____________15:8
    1768X992____________16:10 (Sony 32" LCD)
    1776X1000___________16:9
    1600X1024___________15:10
    1680X1050___________16:10
    2960X1050___________16:10 (Dual monitors)
    1920X1080___________16:9 (HDTV)
    1920X1200___________16:10
    2560X1600___________16:10 (30" Apple Cinema Display, Dell 3007WFP, Quixun)
    3200X2048___________15:10
    3840X2400___________16:10 (Viewsonic 22.2" VP2290b LCD)


    RATIO FORMULA & DECIMAL CONVERSION

    WIDTH / HEIGHT =

    1.25 = 5:4
    1.33 = 4:3
    1.50 = 15:10 WS
    1.60 = 16:10 WS
    1.66 = 5:3 (or 15:9) WS
    1.77 = 16:9 WS

    HDTV High Definition TV 1920X1080
    HDTV+ High Definition TV Plus 1920X1200+ (above 1080 that is)

    SDTV / EDTV / HDTV / XHDTV Specifications:

    XHDTV is 2560 X 1600 pixels
    1080i/p HDTV format is 1920 X 1080 pixels.
    720i/p [aka HDTV & SDTV (S=Super) or EDTV] is 1280 X ~720 (768).
    480p EDTV (E=Enhanced or Extended) [may/may not be widescreen] is 640 X 480 or 704 X 480.
    < or = 420i SDTV (S=Standard) Less than 480p (old cable/Beta/VHS/over air = ~240 to 320)


    XHD vs HD vs ED vs SD
    Refers to the resolution or number of pixels used to represent a single video image frame. Standard Definition refers to having about 350,000 pixels per frame & 4.1 Megapixels XHD 4x the picture clarity of 1080i HDTV & 2x 1080p HDTV
    High Definition refers to having about 2,300,000 pixels per frame, (or about 6 times more than SD). Therefore, 720i/p is NOT True HD.
