What Does UXGA Mean When Talking About Photography?

UXGA means ‘Ultra Extended Graphics Array’ and refers to an image resolution size of 1600 x 1200 pixels which in photography terms equates to 1.92mp. UXGA video interfaces and compatible equipment first appeared around 2010 and the resolution is still widely used today in many office and home computer systems. Running higher resolution compatible equipment is relatively costly making UXGA a popular choice for many home editing setups.  The advantage of higher resolution displays when viewing or editing images is the ability for the display to render higher levels of detail, or to display more than one image simultaneously whilst maintaining reasonable detail levels.
