Retina Display Advancements

Business Technology | June 13, 2012

The country’s technology leaders never stand still and they are always improving their products. It’s why major players like Apple, Microsoft, and Google remain at the top of a competitive industry.

The Power of the Retina Display

One recent example of a company who is doing this right is Apple. Apple’s new Retina display provides the clearest images and videos compared to any other. This is due to its 2,048-by-1,536-pixel resolution. Digital Trends recently wrote an intriguing article about it, and it looks like Apple isn’t stopping there.

Arming the MacBook Pro with High-Tech Visuals

What’s Apple’s next big move? It’s now planning to release a MacBook Pro line with 15-inch displays that boast a resolution of 2,880-by-1,800 pixels. This should result in images that are twice as sharp as those of present-day MacBook Pro models. The aim is to increase the density of pixels to a point where the human eye can no longer identify individual pixels. When this occurs, images are made of smooth, continuous tones. They no longer resemble a grid of dots.

Not a New Technology

The technology behind the Retina display isn’t actually new, according to Digital Trends. The U.S. Military has used it for its flight simulators for years in order to help train its pilots. Even IBM has used it for some of its higher-end supercomputing systems. The change, though, is that Apple is pushing this technology into the mainstream. You can bet that when consumers get a good look at the images on the screen of the new iPad, they’ll demand even crisper text, video, and images on their desktop and mobile devices. And by doing this, Apple is yet again cementing its place among the world’s technology leaders.
