The New iPad Native Resolution and VGA Projector Question
From what I’m reading, the new iPad outputs 2048 x 1536 versus the iPad 2 which does 1024 x 768. Assuming you get a new iPad and are an educator using the VGA pigtail to connect to your classroom projector, I’m wondering if the output down scales to 1024×768? Most projectors I encounter handle the 1024×768 OK… but not 2048 x 1536.
I’ve not seen this addressed in the documentation yet, and wonder if educators using a new iPad and a VGA dongle will be disappointed to find out that their projector cant display such a high resolution. One potential solution is to use the Apple TV + a LCD projector + a HDMI to VGA conversion box – but that’s pretty expensive compared to a $29.00 dongle.
