high resolution

(1) A large amount of information per square inch on a display screen or printed form. Measured in dots per inch (dpi), the more dpi, the higher the resolution and quality. Screens are in the 70-400 dpi range whereas printers are in the 300-1200 dpi range. Imagesetters typically print at 1270 or 2540 dpi. See dpi.

(2) A large amount of information on screen. This is technically "screen resolution." For example, a 2560x1600 screen shows more information than 1600x1200. See screen resolution.

(3) A large amount of information stored per second in a digital audio recording. Measured in samples per second as well as the size of each sample, the more of either one or both, the higher the quality. See sampling and high-resolution audio.
