SIGGRAPH 2014: Nvidia Shows Off Cascaded Displays

Some Nvidia researchers have found a way to create very high fidelity images by stacking two LCDs with offset pixel layers in order to create a higher resolution image than what the displays themselves are capable of. Because of their methodology, they are able to multiply the pixels in the panels to achieve the higher image quality rather than adding the pixels together. This is accomplished through Simultaneous Multiplicative Superposition, which can and will be explained through their whitepaper or the video below. Nvidia’s research team proceeded to combine these two cascaded displays together into a single display using their own custom built 3D printed
