Screen-resolution meaning

The number of horizontal and vertical pixels on a display screen. The more pixels, the more information is visible without scrolling. Screen resolutions have a pixel count such as 1600x1200, which means 1,600 horizontal pixels and 1,200 vertical pixels.Resolution Alphabet SoupScreen resolutions also have base names, such as HDTV and UHD for TVs and XGA and WQXGA for computer monitors. However, the names are confusing. For example, "Q" can mean "quarter" or "quad." QVGA means one quarter the pixels in VGA, while QXGA means quad (four) times the resolution in XGA. Each of the following resolutions is also an entry in this encyclopedia. See resolution and aspect ratio. SCREEN RESOLUTIONSAlphabetic Order(This table is repeated belowin pixel count order.)
