Transcript of Retina Display vs. Regular Resolution Displays

Spatial Resolution: How much is TOO much? The Retina Display Advantages Text becomes much crisper and easy to read on small screens
Images show highest range of continuous tones and are very sharp
Monitor quality is more comparable to a print
Improves color and contrast Disadvantages "High quality" images and video content become smaller because of pixel density
With small displays, retina monitors do not make much difference
Human eye cannot see "jaggedness" on lines above about 100ppi
Requires re-writes of programs and apps on these devices
Actually has over 1,000,000 EXTRA pixels
Apple based "retina display" off of 20/20 vision, which is actually LESS than average vision What is Retina Display? LCD Display created by Apple
Claims to show no pixelization at recommended viewing distance
Also claims to have higher resolution than human eye
Monitors/screens have spatial resolution of 200ppi upwards
Most "non-retina" monitors = 100ppi

Advantages and Disadvantages

Comparison between Retina Display and Other Devices

The Retina Display in Practice

The Future of Displays The Retina Display in Practice People with "normal" vision cannot tell the difference between images on retina display vs. non-retina
Text needs higher spatial resolution to appear sharp
Retina display is very useful for this
Backlit screen, still not ideal
Many programs and graphics have to be rewritten specifically for this
The screens on Apple's devices are simply too small
24"+ monitors
The Future of Displays Current retina displays only simulate 30% of human vision
Pixels need to be up to 65% smaller current retina "true" retina iPhone 326 ppi 2064x1536 264 ppi iPad Macbook Pro 220 ppi 2880x1800 960x640 2776x1848 5968x4486 6096x3810 952 ppi 769 ppi 467 ppi In Review:
Retina displays are good for clear, sharp text
Do NOT match the limit of eyesight
Are still an inconvenience because of improvements in technology
We are seeing the request for super high quality displays
Still have a long way to go!
