16:9 Resolutions and 16:9 Aspect Ratio

When we talk about resolutions, we mean the total number of pixels of an image, expressed as A x B. While 16:9 is the ratio of the width (in pixels) of an image to its height. So accurately speaking, 16:9 resolutions are resolutions that can be used for videos/images at the 16:9 aspect ratio.

When the ratio is fixed, you can easily calculate how many pixels are in width and height for various types of videos. Take 4K 16:9 videos as an example. The resolutions can be 3840 x 2160, 3968 x 2332, 4096 x 2304, and 4224 x 2376.

List of Common 16:9 Resolutions

How to tell if it is true 16:9 resolution? There is a simple way. Divide the width number of resolution by 16. And you should get the greatest common factor. If the height number is divisible by the greatest common factor and the result is 9, then it is a true 16:9 resolution.

Changing aspect ratio in professional NLEs is overkill for people who want to quickly and simply convert their videos to another dimension.

If you are not indulging in complex video editing, there are simple ways to go.

But when speaking of video online sharing, square resolution at 1:1 seems to be the chosen one.
