Summary:
A 10-foot-high, 13-foot-wide screen that makes high-definition television look as grainy as an old TV in a cheap motel has been unveiled by Sandia National Laboratories. The facility’s digitized images, created of 20 million pixels, approach the visual acuity of the eye itself.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A 10-foot-high, 13-foot-wide screen that makes high-definition television look as grainy as an old TV in a cheap motel has been unveiled by Sandia National Laboratories. The facility’s digitized images, created of 20 million pixels, approach the visual acuity of the eye itself. “The eyeball is the limiting factor, not the screen,” says manager and program leader Philip Heermann. “From ten feet away, the image is as good as your eyes are able to see.”
