GLOSSARY

Resolution

The resolution expresses the number of dots that a complete picture is composed of. It is defined as the number of simultaneously displayable dots per line multiplied by the number of lines of the screen.

15 inch LCDs for instance work with the standard resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. Applications with smaller resolutions (i.e. 800 x 600) are scaled up by the scaling algorithm. In this regard it is important that the scaling factor is whole numbered (i.e. factor 2 for 1600 x 1200) because otherwise the picture could get displayed distorted.

The following standard resolutions exist:

0640 x 0480 Pixel (VGA)
0800 x 0600 Pixel (SVGA)
1024 x 0768 Pixel (XGA)
1280 x 1024 Pixel (SXGA)
1600 x 1200 Pixel (UXGA)
2048 x 1536 Pixel (QXGA)

The following widescreen resolutions exist:

1280 x 0800 Pixel (WXGA)
1680 x 1050 Pixel (WSXGA+)
1920 x 1200 Pixel (WUXGA)
