The true resolution of a scanner and the key factor in determining the amount of detail visible in a image. Optical resolution is one type of resolution; the other is interpolated resolution.
The resolution at which a device can capture an image; this creates a set of known values that enables interpolated resolution.
The maximum resolution at which a SCANNER can scan an image without INTERPOLATION.
Optical resolution is also often called true resolution and does not include any interpolation to increase pixels.
The built-in resolution of a scanning device involving the use of a lens and a light source. This is opposed to enhanced resolution, which involves the use of software. Both resolutions are given as dots per inch (dpi).
The true resolution of an image sensor based on the number of photosites on the surface of the image sensor without recourse to interpolation.
In the scanning context, this refers to the number of truly separate readings taken within a given distance (such as dots per inch, or dpi).
The optical graphics resolution is the real maximum resolution that an input device, such as a scanner or digital camera, can render a bitmap image. As opposed to the interpolated resolution.
The physical resolution at which a device can capture an image. The term is used most frequently in reference to optical scanners and digital cameras.
In the scanning context, this refers to the number of truly separate readings taken from an original within a given distance, as opposed to the subsequent increase in resolution (but not detail) created by software interpolation.
the true resolution of a scanning device.
The maximum actual or "true", resolution of a device without the use of interpolation.
The true sampling that is being captured by the scanner's CCD; thus, the true resolution of a scanner (as opposed to interpolated). Optical resolution represents the amount of detail in an image before any software manipulation has taken place.
The maximum physical resolution of a device. Optical resolution provides better quality than interpolated resolution of the same number, which uses software to create additional image information.
Measure of actual photographed resolution. 5.20
Optical resolution describes the ability of a system to distinguish, detect, and/or record physical details by electromagnetic means. The system may be imaging (e.g., a camera) or non-imaging (e.g. a quad-cell laser detector). The electromagnetic spectrum ranges from Gamma rays through the visible spectrum through the Radio waves spectrum.
