Large format displays are often created by combining tiled imaging elements. Ideally, these would give the appearance of a single, seamless display, but in practice, this is difficult to achieve. Even if physical alignment is perfect, differences in color and brightness will make the tiles distinct. Not only are the brightness and colors different, the appearance also varies over the face of the tile and with viewing angle. This paper will describe the primary appearance problems, their causes, and possible solutions.
