Thoughts on the new Mariners “Moose-a-tron”
So the new screen is not exactly “1080p” 1080p is such a worthless term, most people when they say “1080p” they are talking about the size of the HD tv they just bought at Costco, that set has a native resolution of 1920x1080, 16:9 aspect, 24,30,60,120,or 240 fps, and is not interlaced (that is what the p means). 1080p is also shorthand for the OTA broadcast standard, and for the HDMI output format.
Anyway the Mariners Mooseatron is 3840x1080 pixels, it looks to be 32:9, and I don’t know the frame rate but 30p or 60p is a good guess.
That makes the Mooseatron exactly double your HD 1080p set, exactly like two sets side by side.
It is only 4 Megapixels, the camera phone in your pocket (except Marks) can take higher Rez pictures. In the Mooseatrons case size matters, not Rez.
The upcoming UltraHD (aka 4K) standard will have a resolution of 3840x2160, exactly 4 times normal HD, and twice the resolution of the Mooseatron (twice as high)
