In high-end medical, military, and radar-display applications, imaging requirements mandate that 2048 x 2048-pixel images and larger be displayed on very-high-resolution monitors. In such applications, gray-scale x-ray images can be as large as 2048 x 2560 x 10 bits. This month we look at the available display-controller and monitor vendors that are producing OEM products to meet these requirements.
