column 1: a diagonal measurement of a 16:9 screen

column 2: given the value in column 1, the width of that screen

column 3: given the value in column 1, the height of that screen

column 4: given the value in column 1, the optimum seating distance for 1080i/p

column 5: given the value in column 1, the optimum seating distance for 720p

column 6: given the value in column 1, the image width of a 4:3 picture on that 16:9 screen

column 7: given the value in column 1, the image height of a 4:3 picture on that 16:9 screen

does that help?

it's the optimal distance (in inches) per given screen size.

yes it helps thanks

i dont understand what the diffrence between column two and three vs six and seven? and also how can i find out if my computer screen is 720 or 1080? i have an I-Inc 28 inch screen and does the same rules apply to computer screens? its a 28 inch widescreen , i think 16x9 , also what is the diffrence between i and p

columns 2&3 are the actual physical dimensions of the 16X9 screen...

columns 6&7 are the "size" of a 4X3 image on a 16X9 screen (i.e. what you see of the "picture", not counting the "black bars" you'd see on the edge).

i = interlaced, p=progressive... for the sake of what you are trying to learn, it doesn't matter...

you'd have to look at your monitor's description to see what the resolution is...

This simple for you:

Remeber also... 1080p has more detail, so it requires a "closer" viewe to actually see the difference. 720p does not, so you can sit farther away, without missing anything, since it(finer details) is not there.

To simplify it even more: 720p has a "grainer"(rougher) image than 1080p, and actually looks better from a farther distance. Also remember that the distances given assuime normal/uncorrected eyesite in optimal lighting conditions, which are very different between plasma and LCD's. YMMV.

Looks like algebra to me.

lol... hey, a little math never hurt anybody...

hellfire, i'm not really sure how much clearer we can make it...

and you'll have to look at your monitor's specs for it's native resolution...

I think the operative answer to the original question is "No, apparently nobody can explain this more clearly to you".

sadly enough, i'm afraid you are right.... i gave the op the benefit of the doubt the first time around, but if he/she isn't understanding now, i don't think anyone can help...
