Definition of overscan in English:
The facility on some computer screens or televisions to adjust the picture size so that the picture is bigger but the edges of the picture are lost.
- If you view on a standard television or you can adjust your overscan this may not be an issue, but for those without the capability it will be frustrating.
- I have read reports that you can still see the missing picture if you adjust the overscan on your TV, but for the rest of us, this is intolerable.
- The image has been window-boxed to ensure a presentation uncompromised by video overscan.
