Pixel Space - definition(s)

pixel space - [graphics (computing)] The x,y coordinate space defined by the number of pixels in a computer's display area, with a pixel being a single unit of color on the screen. Most computer displays support several pixel configurations (800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1600 x 1200, and so on). The more pixels there are, the smaller each pixel is for a given display size. Since a pixel is a piece of information, a configuration with more pixels can fit more information into a given display area.
