Japanese manufacturer Toshiba has dished the dirt on a stupidly high-res display ahead of an official exhibition in Yokohama in a few days.
Tosh says it has developed a 6.1in LCD display with the world’s highest resolution. Prepare to have your eyes melted.
The 2560x1600 resolution across 6.1in yields 498 pixels per square inch (ppi). To give that figure some context, Apple’s Retina display, for example, weighs in at 326 ppi.
Having said that, the human eye maxes out around 300 ppi, so our race might be incapable of appreciating just how awesome Toshiba’s new display technology is.
However, the 176° viewing angle, both horizontal and vertical, is something that sounds pretty freakin’ impressive.
"This newly-developed world-class, high-definition LCD panel is based on our processing techniques for forming fine-pitch and high-performance, low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) thin-film transistors (TFT) on glass substrates, and other precise fabrication techniques which have been cultivated over the years," explains Tosh.
"This direct-view LCD panel achieves high-definition images with photographic quality, and although the images are displayed in 2D format, they impart a sense of depth and realism."
Toshiba will show off the technology at FDP International 2011 next week.
