Output Readability Comparison of a SXGA Display to a Printer

        The image of a high resolution 1280x1024 display is compared to that produced by modern printers. This report explains why for some output a modern printer still produces better output than the display. The report concludes that more pixels may be needed to archive images, particularly text images, on the display which rival those of modern printers.
