Display diagonal*
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
Display brightness*
Brightness is the amount of radiating light emitted from the screen. The brightness rating is measured in candellas per square meter, commonly known as 'nits'.
300 cd/m²
Display resolution*
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
1680 x 1050 pixels
Response time*
The response time is the time difference between the moment that a source (for example a video card) sends a signal and that equipment (for example a monitor) receives or display the signal. (Used abbreviations: R/F = Rise and Fall.)
5 ms
Contrast ratio (typical)*
The difference in light intensity between the brightest white and the darkest black.
Viewing angle, horizontal*
Maximum horizontal angle at which a display can be viewed with acceptable visual performance.
Viewing angle, vertical*
Maximum vertical angle at which a display can be viewed with acceptable visual performance.
Display number of colors*
16.78 million colours
Native aspect ratio*
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of an image to its height. The native aspect ratio is the one which the projector/display is particularly designed for. Images shown in native aspect ratio will utilize the entire resolution of the display and achieve maximum brightness. Images shown in other than native aspect ratio will always have less resolution and less brightness than images shown in native aspect ratio.
