The Power of the Retina Display
One recent example of a company who is doing this right is Apple. Apple’s new Retina display provides the clearest images and videos compared to any other. This is because of its 2,048-by-1,536-pixel resolution. Digital
Trends recently wrote an intriguing article about it, and it seems like Apple isn’t stopping there.
Arming the MacBook Pro with High-Tech Visuals
What does Apple have planned next? Apparently they are going to release a line of MacBook Pros with a resolution of 2,880-by-1,800 pixels and a 15-inch screen. This is twice the clarity of the current MacBook Pro line. The concept is that by constantly enhancing the pixel density the human eye will ultimately be unable to differentiate the individual pixels. The human eye will then see the images as single continuous tones rather then a grid. This makes the images virtually flawless.
Not a New Technology
An interesting fact is that this is not actually a new technology. The U.S. military has been utilizing it in their flight simulators for quite some time. And IBM uses retina technology in their massive super-computers. However, until now, the technology hasn’t been available on the mass market. You can bet that after this next advancement is released, consumers will be anxiously expecting the next advancement. So, Apple has the right idea to stay ahead of its competitors as far as screen technology goes.
