    "Seams" to make no difference



    Over the past several years Tiled Displays have slowly evolved from expensive blended-projection systems to Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) tiled displays. The LCD systems are typically cheaper to construct and maintain, but the bezels introduced at screen edges are often a common source of complaints. Our long term research goal is to settle the debate between the two technologies to see if there really is any perceivable benefit to one versus the other. The work outlined here presents the first in a series of comparative experiments.
