WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The Barco PGWU-61B has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all projectors of this spec and age is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is nHD (640x360).

The PGWU-61B supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). The resolution of all projectors of a similar type and age to the PGWU-61B ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Matrix Size

The matrix sizes of projectors that are a similar age to the PGWU-61B range from 0.45" to 0.96". At 0.67 inches, the Barco PGWU-61B has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the PGWU-61B.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

When compared to other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PGWU-61B that we have checked the bulb power of, the Barco PGWU-61B's bulb power of 465 Watts is one of the biggest. The average bulb power of projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PGWU-61B is 280W.

11 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to it.
