I read that typical seating is 1.5x screen width.

I will be sitting more like 1x SW.

At this distance, I assume the image may look a bit pixelated.

Is there a better panel tech such as DLP, LCOS, or picture enhancement such as Sony SRXD, JVC eShift, Darbee etc. to reduce pixelation at this distance assuming 4k compatible screen?

You might consider the JVC 4810 with E shift if you can't afford the Sony VW 1000 ! Give Mike or myself a call.

The JVC e-shift looks very good at close seating distances. I sit 1.25 from a 142" 16:9 and it definitely makes a noticeable difference when it's on.

Click on the link in my signature for a close up look at what it does to the image.

Should be 1.5x of screen height. Not sw.

The best place to sit is behind the screen. You will never see any artifacts that way.

1.5 viewing height from my screen means I would be viewing my 9' wide screen from 5'-7". 1.5 screen heights is pretty close even if using a 16:9 screen, but it is doable, for some people. For a 110" diagonal 16:9 screen, you would be viewing from 9'. If you are talking about a 16:9screen, then1.5 screen widths is pretty standard. If using a scope screen, then you usually are talking 2.0 to 4.0 screen heights. I view my 9' wide screen from 9', 2.4 screen heights.

For optimum image quality 20/20 etc.......sitiing closer and the image may be watchable but not optimal.

If one eye sight is better than 20/20 eg 20/15 then one needs to further away again..

Real life supports......as close you can get as long as one can focus!!! wink.gif

Good thnaks.

These figures concur:

SW = Screen Width
SH = Screen Height

20/20 vision 55pixels per degree Visual Acuity for best image quality

1920x1080

1.59 SW or 35Deg Horizontal approx
or
2.9 SH or 20Deg Vertical approx


3840 x 2160

0.69 SW or 70Deg Horizontal approx
or
1.23 SH or 40Deg Vertical approx
