Selecting Display Size based on Room Size and Seating

The purpose of this white paper is to discuss recommended methodologies for determining the ideal display size for multi-purpose areas based on room size and seating location. The size of a display screen can determine the satisfaction level of a viewer’s experience and is dependent upon the viewer’s position and their distance from the display. The recommendations outlined in this document are for displays with 1080p resolution and an aspect ratio of 16:9.

This paper will not touch on display selection for a dedicated home cinema, this is addressed in CEA/CEDIA-CEB23: Home Theatre Recommended Practices: Video Design.
