1â€ť display with 2048x1536 pixels
The industry seems to be accelerating development of new display technology and higher resolution after a few years of standstill. And the company Fourth Dimension Displays proves that point.
Fourth Dimension Display has created a 1-inch display with 2048x1536 pixels
At the game developer conference the company exhibited a Virtual Reality headset that utilizes small display panels around 1 inch in size with Full HD resolution – the same resolution as todayâ€™s HDTVs.
4D Displays also exhibited a prototype display with 2048x1536 pixel resolution, measuring just below 1 inch in diagonal. The small display panel has the same pixel count as the 9.7-inch panel in the new iPad – which is almost 100 times larger. And around 1 million more pixels than a flat panel TV, even though it is only a fraction of the size.
Fourth Dimension Displays hopes to use their high-resolution display panels in virtual reality products such as the Sony HMZ-T1 and Carl Zeissâ€™ OLED Cinemizer. The prototype provided a visually stunning experience in both 2D and 3D, according to people at the convention.
Fourth Dimension Displays confirms that they are already negotiating with several electronics manufacturers. The plan is to release products in the 1500-200 USD price range.
