VIDEO SCREENS When seated too close, the scanning lines on the tube or the pixels on the projectors will be apparent. Seating far enough back will blend these details to the human eye.
VIDEO SCREENS Movie theaters are designed so that viewing angles are reduced to provide more realistic images. Prime seating is designed to view the movie at a 30 degree angle (peripheral view of the human being). When adopting this design to the home theater; visual scanning lines and pixels are detected.
SEATING RANGE DILEMMA Seating distance to overcome visual image structure is typically 4X the height of the video screen. Or this distance can be also measured as 3X the width of the screen. These two parameters are commonly recommended distances by projection screen manufacturers.
