The MicronEye will "double transmit" each pixel in the array when WIDEPIX is selected. Since each image sensing element in the IS32 OpticRAM is twice as wide rectangular in shape, "double transmitting" maintains the proper width to height ratio for displaying the image. There are many applications, however, where maintaining the proper ratio is less important than receiving the image as quickly and compactly as possible. In such a situation NARROWPIX would be the appropriate the mode choice.
