HDTV 16:9 digital computer monitors
An Australian friend of ours told me the other day that HDTV is very popular there in the AU. Well it is too in the US. Some of the new TV's are even being built with internal DVD players and Sony"Memory Sticks" sockets. I won't even go into plasma screens. HDTV's are being used as monitors.
HDTV uses an image ratio of 16:9 aspect ratio viewing area. Meaning that the display is significantly wider than high.
With the convergence of digital TV and computerized panoramas, maybe we should be leaning towards using a wider view than a typical 400w x 300h applet size, if the panoramas are to be displayed on a 16:9 ratio digital TV/monitor.
Adjusting your current applet view port
300h x 400w
to HDTV might mean changing to
300h x 628w ? for a tight screen fit
To see what the wide view looks like visit this demo page. The 'Splash' or 'Wait' was the orginal viewer size.
Interesting thought today
