1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Viewsonic PJD7830HDL is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all data projectors of this age and type the resolution ranges from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).
