The NEC UM361 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 720 x 480 (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (W.

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors of this age and spec.

The worst supported resolution across similar types of data projector is 720 x 480.
