    HI all,

    Could some one tell me if the resolution 1024 x 768 @72Hz and 75Hz would be safe to use on my Barco Data 708, don't want to damage it,
    Also would 1024 x 768 be a good resolution to use as regards wide screen and scan lines,
    My make shift screen that I am using at the moment is in the wide screen format( 71" x 40" approx).
    also what are the benefits of using higher resolutions? :confused:

    any input greatly appreciated

    Lets start with your last question first. Using a higher resolution gives you more detail. This is provided that your projector is capable of resolving the lines individually. If it can't, the lines merge and you get a soft picture. And though I'm pretty sure your 708 will do 1024x768 @ 75, it won't be able to resolve 768 lines and the image will be soft. You're better sticking with 800x600.
    Since you have a small image anyway, you may even find 640x480 is closer to the optium setting for your 708.

    I hold with Spetre 800x600 would be better.
    You won't damage your projector at 1024x768 but It won't be as bright.
    You are literally on the edge of its limits though and if you push the width two far the EHT may colapse and picture could disapear.
