<p>Engineers usually combine tiled imaging elements to make large-format displays. 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. The appearance also varies over the face of the tile and with viewing angle. Here the author describes primary appearance problems, their causes, and possible solutions.</p>
