What distance from eyes you use for a 32" monitor?

PostFri Jun 12, 2020 10:41 pm

I bought a 32" monitor and i can't to accommodate the transition from 27" monitor. I have 75 cm from the screen to my eyes. What distance you use for a 32" monitor? After a week to use my impression is that is too big for me. How much time you was spent to accommodate yours eyes with 32"? My questions is just for 32" monitor owners.

I assume it's a 4k monitor, if you're using it to edit and grade, then the EBU recommendation, to be able to see any benefit in 4K, is 1-1.5 times picture height, which in your case is about 60cm, whereas for HD that would be @3-3.5 times, 120cm -140cm. These are thought to be the maximum distances where any benefit of pixel size can be discerned. That doesn't mean they are necessarily the most comfortable viewing distances though. However as you can see 75cm is slightly beyond the point where 4K becomes relevant at that screen size, for critical viewing and is actually quite a distance to be from a monitor on an editing desk. If it's a client monitor for viewing only then that should be fairly comfortable. I have a 37" HD client monitor, that because of the shape of the edit suite, is about 100-110 in distance and that seems good.

I stay 2 week at 1m distance from my 32" UHD monitor and continued to see him very big like a normaly TV. 96.7 cm is ideal distance that formula say. For me above 1,5 m start to see my monitor size normally but is a not practical distance. I don't understand why the Asus, Dell, Benq make so big and not practical monitor size. I know that UHD resolution stretch well on 32" but what desk size must to have for this monitors?
