This is basicaly a PC monitor that has s-video and component inputs.
It's native rosutlion is 1920x1200 (16x10) vrs 1920x1080 (16x9). If hooked to a PC it will do what the PC video card says, as long as it dosn't excide it's max specs.
For video it will rescale it to 1920x1200, which is an extra 120 horzontial rows, I realy don't think that this will distort the picture that much.
You can download the owners manual from this site. john
