Complete List of 16:9 Resolutions

Lights, camera, action! 🎬

When doing some video editing on a project it’s not just important to know which aspect ratio you’re gonna work in, but also at what resolution.

If you’re working on project with a 16:9 aspect ratio then this list of 16:9 resolutions will help you out.

Why should you go with a 16:9 resolution rather than let’s say a 16:10, 21:9 or 4:3 resolution?

Put simply? Popularity.

Nowadays it is the most dominant resolution for both monitors, laptops, televisions, and phones.

Basically whatever screen you’re looking at at some point in the day has a high likelihood of having a 16:9 resolution.

We should note it’s also the official standard aspect ratio for Youtube. It’s recommended that you encode at one of these resolutions:

  • 2160p: 3840×2160
  • 1440p: 2560×1440
  • 1080p: 1920×1080
  • 720p: 1280×720
  • 480p: 854×480
  • 360p: 640×360
  • 240p: 426×240

With them you will get the best results. Use the highest resolution possible for the best picture.

Avoid any letterboxing if you chose to use a different ratio and are editing specifically for Youtube. 

This is unnecessary as Youtube will automatically adapt the video player to fit your size.

Stick to the original ratio and you will avoid unnecessary black bars at the top and bottom.

What are the standard 16:9 resolutions?

Standards can vary by regulating bodies such as the ATSC, DCI, CTA and others, but in general these are the most popular and recognized 16:9 resolutions:

  • 720×480 (480p, SD)
  • 960×540 (qHD)
  • 1280×720 (720p, HD)
  • 1366×768 (WXGA)
  • 1600×900 (HD+)
  • 1920×1080 (1080p, FHD)
  • 2560×1440 (1440p, QHD)
  • 3200×1800 (QHD+)
  • 3840×2160 (4K UHD)
  • 5120×2880 (5K UHD+)
  • 7680×4320 (8K UHD)
  • 15360×8640 (16K UHD)

Complete list of true 16:9 resolutions

Below is a list of all 16:9 resolutions all the way up to the highest standard that’s been established so far, 16K UHD. This is incredibly useful when video editing.

True 16:9 resolutions are only the ones that equal 1.77:1, where there are infinite number of 7s.

The list also shows which resolutions are divisible by 8 which is important for optimizing the videos.

Resolutions not divisible by 8 can cause errors like macroblocking and green bar on the side of a video.
