Micro LED

So, after they burned OLED, AMOLED, QLED, LEDLCD and everything else they got, they're finally revealing the true stuff.

Actually, the true stuff would be Micro LETs, but whatever

The shit is also modular, which makes multiple-monitor faggots go on suicide watch.

And finally, they killed the curved screen faggotry gimmick with this as well.

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imIrem-9hEc

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIbj6t0xS4s

PS: Why don't they make a LED/LET that can vary its colors by itself instead of still using 3 for RGB? This technology already exists, for fuck's sake.

>>866809

Rereading your posts, you seem to be referring to one of two things unrelated to what I'm talking about:

>a) Mismatch between content framerate and playback framerate without commonly divisible factors, on any display. For instance 24FPS being played at 25FPS or 30FPS, which results in some frames being displayed for different amounts of time (judder), the wrong average amount of time (desync), or dropped (stutter). None of these problems cause motion blur.

>b) Mismatch between playback framerate and display framerate with commonly divisible factors, on a flickering display (film/CRT/plasma). For instance, 24FPS or 60FPS playback being displayed at 120FPS, which results in perceptual ghosting, but also decreases motion blur and flicker (also, note this ghosting caused by displaying the same frame repeatedly is a perceptual illusion occurring in the person watching, and isn't the same as physical "crosstalk" artifacts where the display actually shows simultaneous ghost images). Ghosting and motion blur are not the same thing, though very large amounts of ghosting can appear similar to motion blur.

I'm talking about a third, totally unrelated effect, whereby "sample & hold" flicker-free or low-flicker displays cause you to perceive motion blur.

>>867073

Ok, you finally understand me and I got your point.

Now, my solution is different from yours: to me, it should be the case where all monitors become flick-free (like ViewSonic) and the content adapt to it by increasing the frame rate.

Also, display persistence is hardly a problem - 7 is too much, but you can have top class IPS today with 2 (I've only seen 1 in TN and never saw 0).


 No.867185

>>867132

>the content adapt to it by increasing the frame rate

Like I said before, there's only two ways to do this: Either synthesize fake frames using a computer (software like SVP), which will of course result in artifacts and latency, or originate and store content at a higher framerate (MUCH higher, like hundreds of FPS). If you have low-FPS content and don't want artifacts or lag, flicker is the only solution.

>you can have top class IPS today with 2 (I've only seen 1 in TN and never saw 0).

I don't think LCD manufacturer figures are credible. For instance, while this was back in 2009, an LCD rated as "8ms response" yielded 2x-4x that much lag, depending on GtG conditions, when actually tested:

http://www.displaymate.com/LCD_Response_Time_ShootOut.htm

And attempting to get around this by switching from slow laggy tech like IPS to something faster (less slow, really) like VA, TN, or BPM, means sacrificing even more of LCD's already inadequate color/tone performance. LCD is just absolute garbage in every way.

I don't think it would be so much impossible. You see, there are 3 things:

>OS and programs

>Videos

>Rendering (games included)

OS and programs run native, so no problem.

Rendering would just require new APIs (or not even that) to remove any fps cap things might have and just boost it all. 120fps is enough for that, and achieving it in 1080p today is done easily. If it's static like Autodesk stuff, then there's no problem here either. Hardware power could solve this - for very old stuff, like 90s games and such, either make an update for the cards to override their limitations or rely on future patches or revision versions of the game.

For video, I don't think there's any solution apart from that horrible "motion flow" stuff present in TVs.


 No.867269

>>867233

Yeah, native content or other CGI with source files available obviously wouldn't be a problem, except as you noted for some legacy (especially emulated) or badly written stuff that's too hard to reverse-engineer. "MotionFlow" is Sony's consumer branding for the computationally interpolated postprocessing I referred to. Even on the matter of future content, interframe compression means the storage/distribution penalty for higher FPS video isn't necessarily that bad given well-optimized CODECs. Keep in mind, however, that going totally flicker-free would require very high-FPS displays, faster than any LCD on the market right now, and rendering stuff like games at typical resolutions (2k+) in realtime would max out a $1k PC.

Without such a hundreds-of-FPS setup though, you're right back at the binary choice of "flicker or motion blur".

Oh, and I noticed a moment too late I didn't read that article I linked quite closely enough, since the "8ms" figure was for rise/fall response, while the test was just for single-transition, so the manufacturer was actually exaggerating '''4x-16x slower" response.

In http://roscidus.com/blog/blog/2014/06/06/python-to-ocaml-retrospective/ some guy blogs about his rewrite of some Python program. Randomly, one of the languages he considers is 'ATS': http://www.ats-lang.org/Home.html

ATS seems to the be result of some guy having strong opinions about type systems, while having very weak opinions about language design. So for comments ATS literally has ML-style, C-style, C++-style options, and also some fourth novelty that the author found useful once. The author introduces tuples, then boxed tuples, then basically writes "so which should you use? well, uh, profile it I guess. Maybe there's a difference in some cases?" The whole language is like this.

And in some respects it's spectacularly ugly:

#include "share/atspre_staload.hats"
#include "share/atspre_staload_libats_ML.hats"
// ^-- these fucking stdlib names

implement main0 () = // "main0" ...
let val f = 42.0
val i = g0float2int (f) // "gee zero" prefixes? manual name mangling
in
print_int (i);
print_newline ()
end
OTOH, Rust is pretty ugly too. ATS is supposed to have similar capabilities. Has anyone looked at it?

careful distributing binaries. ATS's compiler names symbols after the the full path of the compile-time location of the files involved, so it leaks your username if you compile files under your homedir.

Anyone else think the rise of web development/web technologies/webapps could be good for more obscure OSes? Nowadays the most important component for a desktop OS is a modern web browser, so just being able to port one like Firefox or Chromium over is enough for someone to go from "lel look at this shitty meme OS" to "hmm this actually seems like it could go somewhere"

In other words, GNU/HURD, Minix3, and Redox need a modern browser.

>does ATSC broadcast HD signal?

It takes 3 seconds to plug in an antenna, scan, and find out for yourself

It takes less than this to perform a web search. But yes, ATSC specifies up to 1080p MPEG streams over VHF/UHF.

ATSC also increases the total number of available channels because as it turns out UHF/VHF to have a lot of bandwidth for digital streams, this is known as "multiplexing" and it's basically multiple "sub-channels" per frequency specified by the channels metadata. So now instead of channel 11, you can have channel 11-1, 11-2, 11-3.etc


 No.866015

>does ATSC broadcast HD signal?

Yes. It can do 1080i/p. With 5.1 audio.

ATSC 3.0 can do 4K now and has a pathway to 8K. Audio is Dolby AC-4 and MPEG-H 3D Audio.

If the broadcaster doesn't get crazy with compression try and cram a bunch of subchannels on to 1 frequency the ATSC1.0 OTA broadcasts can actually be better then what you can get via digital CATV or DirectTV.

What's the future of online discussion anons?

<modern failed experiments:

>socialmedia

In a attempt to increase post quality, various sites sprung up where via a white list (following, subscribing, etc) or via voting, post were filtered out. This ultimately resulted in a filtering to the least common denominator, and the creation of a singular mass culture.

>imagesboards

In order to prevent the socialization of the community into a single mass culture users are made anonymous and with limited moderation. This to some extent succeeded but in the end the shitposters destroyed any discussion worth having on sufficiently large boards, and discussion defaulted to the least common denominator.

>smaller imageboards

In response to increases in low quality discussion and unwillingness to submit to the mass culture imageboards fracture into smaller communities more capable of having quality discussion, these unfortunately rarely gain enough users to have a conversation at all, meaning with rare exception fractures mend themselves.

<previously failed experiments:

>BBS Usenet & Mailing Lists

Killed by advances in technology, and spam.

>forums & irc

In response to poor moderation users fled sometimes consciously sometimes unaware to a environment where they could moderate themselves. This lead to the rise of self moderation. In addition these have some of the issues of socialization as socialmedia, although given to a lesser extent.

I don't personally have a problem with web interface, so long as it's not forced on the user. The problem is these days almost every site forces you into web interface. So you can't ever use old, comfy, simple, non-botnet computer. You can't even use a cheap, small Beaglebone running OpenBSD text console instead of X.

But you could have some nodes running a web interface front-end for normies, and the rest just using the "real" text protocol. That's pretty easy to do. So long as the web interface doesn't dictate the protocol and content, then it will work.

I guess nntpchan works a bit like this, but they actually allow images on there. It's not just text.

basically you have to accept to become a second-class citizen and the token gaijin english teacher for the rest of your days, but you maybe can be happy

at best you will find a Japanese wife, have hapa's who will not be bullied because you put them in an international school and after 20 years of high-school teaching get a temp job at a local university

Hmm, in the super-early 4chan days, there's was 5chan operated by a German crim that kept DDoS'ing 4chan.

Fun Fact: Furries actually got on reasonably well with halfchan then-- however when 5chan created their /fur/ board, and the DDoS'ing happened, the Furries sided with 5chan.

Then those fuckers got told to Yiff In Hell.

Fur-hate started on something awful. What I don't know is if SA truly shilled the chans into hating furries or secretly tried to claim credit for it for edge points. what I do know, is that the special snowflakes added fuel to the fire, and I take a wild guess that many of the perpetrators of the hate are the very snowflakes that everybody else hates.

A photograph showing an alleged leaked Army document revealing a joint project to track anonymous cryptocurrencies seems to have come from a somewhat unlikely place. The photograph reveals some interesting things, one of which is the revelation that the National Security Agency (NSA) is conducting a joint project with the US Army’s Cyber Protection Team (CPT) from the Cyber Protection Brigade located in Fort Gordon, Georgia. The image, originally posted on 4chan’s /biz section which is their Business and Finance forum, is dated August 21st, 2017 and states:

With the spectre leaks and whatnot, why are you guys focused on software when your entire machine is exposed? Seems pointless.

it's not necassarily exposed if you own old, blob free hardware. The more hardcore users around are into that, hence the old thinkpad threads.

but yeah if you give even the slightest shit about your privacy, you need to start from the metal up

Linus's paw paw sez that the NSA approached him and tried to get him to backdoor Linux.

what to do with open 8ch tech tabs?

this is what happens:

>visit 8ch tech

>open a lot of new threads

>also reply in threads from previous days

>next day happens, go to point 1 and repeat

after some weeks I get like 50-150 8ch tech threads in my browser

how to avoid and fix that?

how to keep threads that are still active and important? what to do with threads that no longer active? close them? bump them? save them to hdd?

what is your system and procedure for browsing 8ch tech?

For as long as bookmarking is shit (show me a bookmark manager which isn't clunky to use and is able to preserve parent-child tab relationships from treestyletab), keeping tabs open is sadly the better alternative. Prove me wrong by showing specific examples of good tab/bookmark management, much appreciated if you can do that.

The alternative is to close the threads when you've finished reading them! If you want to archive them, then archive them! I know this is radical but I can assure you, it can actually work.

>what is your system and procedure for browsing 8ch tech?

step 1. go to 8ch.net/<board name>/catalog.html

step 2. open interesting threads in new tabs

step 3. close catalog tab

step 4. read the thread and reply to people

step 5. close thread tab

step 6. repeat from 4 for every thread I have opened in step 2

step 7. close web browser

Are they a meme or not? Personally i think they help a lot but there are so many people saying things like "i've been programming for 30 years and my editor is black on white and it JUST WORKS"

I slightly modded ir_black. The concrete advantage of color schemes is that it's easier on the eyes to be able to see things in colors. Helps pick out and differentiate pieces of code easier. Open up a big C++ file in your editor and look at it. Then cat it. See the difference?

Well, they're fun, and to me they add a degree of comfort. I like that I can continue to customize them by specifying new keywords that I find important. Hell, sometimes I've made certain keywords bold and underlined just for the duration of a project, if they were important and I was missing them.
