ANSI pixel = A Not created by Silicion Implanted in the projector pixel.


:D


Perhaps an ANSI pixel is a specific measure of resolving power using standardized test pattern design?

I had a similar question myself... when I watch my FusionHDTV-II card at 1080i, I set my Marquee at 1920x1080. But then I noticed that exceeds the stated max ANSI resolution.


It didn't blow up or anything, so I'm assuming that's actually "max ANSI resolvable resolution"? I figured the Marquee must do some sort of analog downscaling?


Is there some type of "over frequency / over resolution" input protection on the VIM? Or can I do serious damage by experimenting with high settings on my ATI?

A CRT will accept nearly any horizontal resolution without damage. Its the vertical resolution / refresh rate that must always be within specifications... this is why we generally don't talk about "resolution" of a CRT, but more about its maximum h-sync, and maybe its valid v-sync range.
