From the specs of the projector:

DLP - 4000 lumen - 1024 x 768 - 480p - 720p - 1080i - 3D Ready - 6.4 pounds

They state the resolution is 1024x768, but then they add 1080i, from wikipedia:

The term 1080i assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a frame size of 1920×1080 pixels.

I'm a bit confused, what the resolution of this projector?

This question is not exactly on topic here on this site which is about Audio and Video Production, but since projectors are used in some performance scenarios, I've edited it to more closely fit here. – Friend Of George Nov 5 '11 at 15:19

Most projectors support multiple resolutions. The specifications list all resolutions supported by the projector.

The projector you are asking about will handle 1024x768, 480p, 720p, and 1080i.

OK, so you changed a little bit the question title. What I meant to ask was: is 1080i similar to 1080X1920 ? – Patrick Nov 6 '11 at 10:12
Yes. 1080i refers to a standard resolution which is indeed 1080x1920. – Friend Of George Nov 7 '11 at 14:09
