The purpose of this tool is to inform you of the optimal viewing distance for Immersive Viewing for a given Screen Resolution and Size (in diagonal inches).
My calculations are based on the THX Recommended Viewing Distance Standards.
Additionally, I've included a Quality Level Rating for how closely the screen adheres to the "The Window Effect". This is a theory I had a long while ago that led to years of research and eventually a white paper. On the results page I've included a brief summary of the concept. But generally speaking the rating provides how well the given screen size and resolution provides a "technology barrier-free" Immersive Viewing experience.
This concept holds key relevance to me in regards to 2K, 4K, 8K, and beyond motion picture display technology for device, home, and cinema exhibitions.
