The Desktop Projector allows you to project any size area of your monitor or from multiple monitors. However please consider the following points when projecting:
- Image transmission is faster when a smaller area is projected depending on your and your viewers' Internet bandwidth.
- Your viewers might not have the same screen resolution as you do. Although a viewer can click the "Fit to screen" button to adjust the image to their screen size, the resized image may not be easy to read if it is resized by a large factor.
Let's assume you want to project the following image that takes up your entire screen:
But some of your viewers might have a much smaller screen resolution such as 1024 x 768. So they would only see the area in the blue rectangle below and would have to use the scroll bars to see other parts of your projected image as shown below:
If they push the "Fit to screen", it would adjust the image to their screen size and they would hence see:
When the image is resized by a large factor, it may loose too much resolution to be read.
Based on the above, we suggest you try to project an area that is:
- Either small enough to fit on most screens, or
- Needs small adjustment so that when attendees do a Fit to Screen, it would still look good.
- Also note that as an Admin or Presenter, you can force the image to fit for all attendees as an option.
