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)
