Given a device's physical dimensions (as screen diagonal), actual hardware resolution, and average viewing distance, calculates the ideal viewport dimensions and device pixel ratio based on the CSS reference pixel.
Current "web on TV" browsers generally use either full-HD (1920×1080) or HD-ready (1280×720) resolution, which is often inadequate (too high resolution for regular-sized TVs at average "10 foot experience" distance, making everything too small and requiring users to zoom and/or designers to provide a separate TV stylesheet or site altogether - perhaps fine for bespoke TV-only versions, but not going to happen for general websites). The issue will only get worse with proliferation of different form factors (higher-resolution TVs like 4K and 8K, or giant 110" screen walls), as one-size solutions ("make text twice as big for TV in your separate site" or "just introduce a new device class 'tv' CSS 3 media feature") won't work. Proposed solution: TV browsers should react like mobile browsers and, if
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"> is present, switch to using ideal viewport (which is device-specific, set by manufacturer or, in case of set-top boxes, determined during user-guided setup).
