HPA Blog: A display made for humans
Indian Wells, California — At the 2014 Hollywood Post Alliance Retreat (http://hollywoodpostalliance.org), the session on “Better Pixels: Best Bang for the Buck” gave some interesting insights on how we can make better displays — displays made for humans. Participants on the panel pointed out research as well as subjective experiences with 4K as well as HD TVs show that 4K by itself doesn’t lead to a better visual experience.
The session participants said that higher resolution isn’t enough and that in addition to more pixels we also need faster pixels (higher frame rates) and better pixels (better contrast and extended luminance levels). If we really want to make a better display it must reach beyond the limitations of prior display technology.
