For the last time Nmlobo , learn to read what people are saying.
You said this
"Ahhhhhhhh but MOST consumers WILL see benefit over 720p (on a 50" set) when they sit 9.8 feet
or closer. "
He did not say at 9.8 feet,.... he said closer than 9.8 feet... Don't attribute words to people that they didn't say.
You will not resolve 1080p on a 50 inch set at 9.8 feet... or any 1080p benefits at exactly 9.8 feet... 9.8 feet on a 50 is 720p viewing,,...again he said closer.... you will see some benefits.
9.8 feet is about the max resolution of the eye for 720p on a 50 inch set...
What he appears to be saying is you have to get closer of this 720p distance on a 50 inch set. to begin to see some benefit of 1080p.. not full HD until you get to 6.5.
9.8 feet for a 50 inch is for max 720p viewing not 1080... this is why he is saying you have pull closer... here they round it off 768p viewing to 10 feet.
"In a 50-inch plasma display with an array of 1366x768 pixels, the pitch of individual pixels is typically less than 1 mm (about 0.9 mm), which equals 0.039 inches. Do the math, and you'll see that standing 10 feet from a 50-inch plasma means you can barely perceive the HD pixel structure, and that's only if you have 20-20 vision."http://proav.pubdyn.com/2005_January...rallaxview.htm
So move closer from this max 9.8 feet for 768 distance on a 50 inch set to start and you will not see 1080p until you get to 6.5
This is the second time you misinterpret what I say and now you're doing it with articles. He is saying you have to get closer to this 720p distance to start...
But you are not fully resolving 1080p on a 50 inch until you get to 6.5 feet.
The 7.9 foot angle is for 50 inch sets regardless of what the resolution is.
It is only the last line of that calculator that refers to 1080p viewing.
You did this the other day as well when you said that I said 768p sets don't interpolate.
Please take your time in reading something before you respond.
Your comment or question..
"And you KNOW for a fact that MOST sit more than ten ft. from their set? Where did you discover this?"
My friend, use your common sense
1080p advocates or not... I don't think you will find much support in people saying that the majority of the people who own 50 inch sets sit closer than 10 feet from their sets. I don't think you find many saying they sit under 12 feet.
It was he that said this
"So, most consumers will not be able to see the full benefit of their 1080p TV."http://www.carltonbale.com/2006/11/1080p-does-matter/
You're trying to twist his words into saying most people will see that difference when he said the opposite.
You said this
"Ahhhhhhhh but MOST consumers WILL see benefit over 720p (on a 50" set) when they sit 9.8 feet or closer. ""
If that is not a spin on someones words nothing ever was in this world.
You can't see from that statement he made he is talking the majority of people ...won't see a difference?
I'm not saying this to be cocky but you have a very strange way of interpreting peoples statements and what they are trying to say or twisting it.
That is not the point of where people are going to see benefits... he saying that the majority of people will not see benefits because they don't sit close enough to the set.
This is like saying... the majority of people that sit at 6.5 feet from a 50 inch set will see full 1080p. Of course they will... but do most people, the article is leading to no they don't.
I never said that 1080p will not have benefits at the right... or close distance.
What are you trying to pull a lawyers tactic?
All the people will see benefits if they sit close enough. Not is not the point. The point is WHERE DOES THE MAJORITY SIT.
The comments about most people is not if they sit that close they will see a difference.... but WHERE MOST PEOPLE SIT, and where most people sit they will not see that difference. This is what he is saying.
Re read my statement as well... I said from 10 feet with a 50 inch set.... people will not see a difference.
Not going to waste much more time with someone who can't interpret peoples statements.
