Note:  In order to project at 1920 x 1080 the computer must be set to extended desktop mode with "mirroring" turned off. Only new laptops have graphic cards which support this high a resolution so we suggest using 1440 x 900 in most situations.

The projectors in 101 & 103 have a native display resolution of 1024 x 768  60hz
