Understanding Pixel Density & Retinal Resolution | Road To VR
Learn about “retinal resolution” and the importance of what an “arc-minute per pixel” is. What I have found most people don’t understand when it comes to defining how many pixels you need for a display is what the viewing distance is. This article does a great job explaining this in context to making a good VR/AR headset.
“While most of us are used to dealing with resolution figures that describe pixel count (ie: a 1920×1080 monitor), pixel density stated as pixels per degree is a much more useful figure, especially when dealing with AR and VR headsets. Achieving ‘Retinal resolution’ is the ultimate goal for headsets, where at a certain pixel density, even people with perfect vision can’t discern any additional detail. This article explores those concepts, and takes a look at how far today’s headsets are from retinal resolution.”
