|The new laptop that has recently been purchased allows us to connect to the projector by HDMI cable.
The use of the HDMI cable means that we can take advantage of the full resolution of the projector.
The maximum resolution is now 1920 (horizontal) x 1080 (vertical).
Just to clarify, your image won’t be stretched to fit this size, so;
If you submit an image 1920 (h) x 700 (v) this is the resolution it will be shown.
If you submit an image of 1920 (h) x 2160 (v) it will be shown as 960 (h) x 1080 (v). This is because the vertical resolution needs to be halved and therefore the horizontal resolution will be to keep the aspect ratio correct.
Files will be shown as submitted and will not be resized by the competition secretary. Last year Matt needed to resize a great number of images.
Should you have issues with resizing images please speak to Philip Atkinson or John Cross for advice.
