The BenQ MW632ST’s native resolution is 1280×800, which yields a 16:10 aspect ratio. If you feed it a 4:3 1024×768 video signal, it might do the right thing and pad the signal on all sides so that you get a 4:3 inset of the native display panel. With DLP’s high contrast, you might not notice the overprojection.

Oliver, would building a sandbox in a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of 4:3 work, or does the software assume a 4:3 aspect ratio for both projector and sensor? Mounting the sensor at a height which covers the longer dimension would “waste” some sensor resolution on either side of the shorter dimension, but aside from the wasted sensor area, would this pose any problem?

In other words, instead of exactly matching aspect ratios for the sensor and projector, would it be possible to “fit” the projection within the sensor area?
