pixel space

URL copied Share URL
  1. [graphics (computing)] The x,y coordinate space defined by the number of pixels in the display area, such as 1024 x 768 or 1600 x 1200. Each pixel provides a single unit of color on the screen at a given time. The more pixels in the display area, the smaller each pixel is. Since a pixel is a piece of information, a configuration with more pixels can fit more information into a given display area.
