Recommended Viewing Distances

While viewers may initially think that even higher resolutions would result in larger screens in already cramped living rooms, that is not the case. Higher resolutions could bring a more immersive experience to the home theater as viewers enjoy a wider field of view watching 4K video.

The simple way to understand this is to think of today’s personal computer monitors where the viewing distance is typically 18- to 24-inches for a 27-inch, 1080p monitor. If the resolution of that monitor is set to 640-by-480 pixels (standard definition TV resolution), the picture is not very sharp or pleasing. On the other hand, the picture looks fantastic if the resolution is set to 1920-by-1080 (2K) pixels.

This concept applies to television and theaters as well. Consumers should be able to sit close to a 4K television enjoying a wider field of view and a more immersive experience.

The recommended viewing distances shown in the diagram are based on the picture resolution and the height (H) of the picture.
