Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of data projectors of this spec and age range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens. The PT-DZ870 has one of the brightest projector brightnesses (8,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The PT-DZ870 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all data projectors of this type and age.

Across comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).
