Paper Abstract

A vernier acuity task was used to compare three electronic displays, a high-resolution CRT, a high-resolution AMLCD, and a very-high-resolution AMLCD. The offset threshold value, approximately 6 seconds arc, was found to be independent of display resolution. The very-high-resolution display had one octave more positional accuracy than the high-resolution displays. This performance difference was readily apparent. To match the image quality of print or photographic reconstruction, a very-high-resolution screen is required.
