The IN72 native rez is 854x480p, but this explains how it can display higher rez, straight from the horse's mouth:http://store.infocus.com/escalate/st...ewToProjection
"There are several factors you'll need to consider when choosing a home projector including video resolution, projected image size, your budget, and what devices you want to connect to your projector:
Video resolution is measured in lines - for example, standard TV signals are made up of 480 lines of resolution while HDTV signals contain either 720 or 1080 lines of resolution.
If you will use your projector mostly for gaming or watching DVD's, a 480p projector such as the InFocus Play Big IN72 will be more than satisfactory for your needs. However, if you have HDTV or plan on investing in the new HD DVD formats soon to be released, you may want to look at a 720p projector such as the InFocus Play Big IN76.
All of our Play Big projectors have advanced video scaling technology that allow various input signals to be output in the projector's native resolution. For example, you can run 1080i HD content into a projector with 480p native resolution, and it will look great. Likewise, you can do the opposite and run 480p signals into a native 720p projector and the projector will scale that image to look best with the projector. "
Bottom line: The Infocus scaler does a fine job at displaying both 480P and Hi-Def 720P,1080i.
hope this helped.
