The highest resolution of the PT-RZ370 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

At 0.65 inches, the PT-RZ370 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-RZ370. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-RZ370 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62".

The PT-RZ370 has a fairly big optical zoom (2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ370 is 0.9% and the biggest is 100%. With a uniformity of 90 percent, the PT-RZ370 has one of the bigger uniformities amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.
