Parallax, a word used in web design to describe forced perspective images advancing at different rates, has been a notable force in digital applications for roughly a decade.

In that time it has become an excellent asset in transitioning news reports from inked pages to digital screens. The results are often nuanced, but detailed, renderings allowing for multiple viewpoints to be covered quickly without overwhelming audiences.
