[greg janza] "And that's what makes the Yedlin experiment so fascinating. Unless I'm misunderstanding his results, Yedlin proves without any doubt that there's no way for the human eye to detect a difference in resolution quality at a certain point and that other factors that are non-resolution dependent have a much greater affect on the viewing experience. And that theory would hold true even if you scale up the screen from a television monitor to full on theatrical projection."

There's an ideal viewing distance that goes along with the size of the screen. Think about resolution in terms of pixels per degrees of FOV, not just pixels or pixels per foot. If you're closer than the ideal viewing distance, the human eye can resolve more detail than the screen can show, and the image is noticeably softened.

Unfortunately, the people who sign the checks usually sit in the front row, while the best seats in the house are sometimes as far as halfway back.
