SVGA is the measurement of pixels in density of an image expressed in horizontal dots and vertical dots. SVGA is 800 x 600 resolution. This represents 800 pixels horizontally by 600 pixels vertically. The higher the resolution, or density, enables the greater detail of the display
SVGA is used to define a specific display resolution. Resolution is defined by the number of individual dots that a display uses to create an image. These dots are called pixels. An SVGA display has 800 horizontal pixels and 600 vertical pixels giving a total display resolution of 480,000 individual pixels that are used to compose the image delivered by a projector.
This system can support a palette of up to 16,000,000 colors, although the amount of video memory in a particular computer might limit the actual number of displayed colors to something less than that. Image-resolution specifications vary. In general, the larger the diagonal screen measure of an SVGA monitor, the more pixels it can display horizontally and vertically. Small SVGA monitors (14-inch diagonal) usually display 800 pixels horizontally by 600 pixels vertically. The largest monitors (20 inches or more diagonal measure) can display 1280 x 1024, or even 1600 x 1200, pixels.
Super Video Graphic Array. This 800x600 pixel dimension has 800 horizontal pixels and 600 vertical pixels that define the image on screen. This higher resolution specification for computer and projector displays means that text appears less 'jagged' and more detail is possible in images like spreadsheets and small text and graphics as well as scanned photos.
