Highest-resolution computer display in the world

Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have constructed the highest-resolution computer display in the world – with a screen resolution up to 220 million pixels. The giant television known as the Highly Interactive Parallelised Display Space (HIPerSpace) – can deliver real-time rendered graphics simultaneously across 420 million pixels to audiences in two of the university’s campuses at Irvine and San Diego.The HIPerSpace system is linked together via high-performance dedicated optical networking that can transfer up to two gigabits of data per second. The screen’s incredible display will come in handy for a variety of worthier, large-scale applications.

University of California, San Diego plans to make the display available to teams of scientists or engineers who need to deal with huge amounts of data in areas such as climate prediction, biomedical engineering, studying the human genome, and brain imaging.
