Paper Abstract

There is a historical problem with flexible, responsive real-time displays for images. The limited number of pixels displayed on the screen (usually misstated as a lack of resolution) has limited the instantaneous area of coverage of the display, while limitations in the speed of loading the display refresh memory, in conjunction with architectural and cost constraints for rapidly changing the true resolution of displayed data, have caused many users to continue a preference for film over digital displays. The key missing factor in existing displays is the ability to easily exchange area of coverage and resolution.
