Display formats in 4:3 aspect ratio

So that the 5:4 display can also be reproduced on 4:3 screens, this format can be converted to the 4:3 format. After conversion, it has a resolution of 1,600 x 1,200 pixels. This resolution corresponds to that of Ultra-XGA( UXGA).

As an SXGA variant, there is also SXGA+ for screens with an aspect ratio of 4:3 and a resolution of 1,400 x 1,050. This standard is not designed for a specific frame rate.
