That’s right – this new display from Ortustech measures just 9.6 inches diagonally, but manages to pack in the same amount of resolution that LG and Sony have to use and 84-inch HDTV to handle. 4K, which is a shorthand for the resolution of 3840×2160, is double that of ordinary 1080p HD. Doubling the resolution quadruples the pixels, however, which means that the actual information density of the new screen is astonishingly large.
Of course, that’s not even the most extreme display that Ortustech has created thus far – they’ve always managed to engineer a 2-inch screen that offers up a 960×540 resolution, or quarter-HD. That equals out to a stunning 546 pixels per inch!
At sizes like these, picking out individual pixels is an impossibility. The crystal clarity they offer isn’t wasted, however, as the company claims that high resolution screens such as these can be of substantial use in the medical imaging field as well as broadcast media, both of which require their users to see and understand the information in front of them.
Ortustech used a new technology known as HAST, or Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT, to create the displays, which pack the RGB subpixels more closely together than ever before.
