Hdtv's At 1920x1200 Resolution
Posted 02 April 2012 - 07:58 AM
Are there any large HDTV's that support 1920x1200, or do they all do this and simply not state it? I thought we used to run 1600x1200 off a 52' Sharp TV, but we may have simply been stretching the image.
What other options are there? We would prefer not to do projectors, but I guess that is the only other option. Can anyone recommend one? I need to propose a few different options and the pricing. Basically we are looking to go as big as possible.
I would be running the display off a computer.

I'm wondering what these HDTVs will be used for. To my knowledge, there's no content--outside of professional motion picture projection--with a higher resolution that 1920x1080 (1080p).
The numbers you give, 1920x1200 and 1600x1200, suggest the old 4x3 aspect ratio. Is this for old movies or old TV shows?
You mentioned a problem with stretching the image. HDTVs offer multiple options for viewing 4x3 content. If the image looked stretched, you probably had the HDTV set to "Full," which stretches the image. You want a setting that pillarboxes the image, putting black or grey bars on the side of the screen so that the narrower image looks correct.
HD formats, like Blu-ray, generally include pillarboxing in the media when it's called for.
