Fixed Pixel Display
Newer display technologies such as DLP, LCD, and Plasma are Fixed Pixel Displays. Unlike a CRT which can display a number of resolutions natively (without upsampling or downsampling), Fixed Pixel Displays are limited to displaying a certain resolution. Although they may be compatible with signals in other resolutions, these signals must be upsampled or downsampled (resized) to the display's native resolution.
