Seeing is much more complicated than most people realize. In this age of video, films, and television it is tempting to think of vision as just another way to make a picture. Recent findings suggest that the visual signals that are picked up by the eye are not processed by a single strand of nerves but are actually fed into three distinct processing systems within the brain: one system processes the shape of what is seen, another its color, and the third its location or movement. As more is known of how the eye processes the massive amount of information that it typically takes in, we may even be able to duplicate the experience of sight in ways that are superior to film, television, and photography in the near future.

The statements above, if true, most strongly support which of the following?

The new technology has given us the ability to truly appreciate what the human eye is capable of.

No video system or computerized camera currently available can match the ability of the human visual system to make sense of an infinite variety of images.

Developments in visual technology can be compared favorably with recent findings undertaken by experts in the physical sciences.

The multiple-strand processing systems of the eye allows the human brain to “visualize” what a camera cannot.

Cameras and vision have complementary features.

No video system or computerized camera currently available can match the ability of the human visual system to make sense of an infinite variety of images. (B)

If we look to the last sentence, we would find "able to duplicate the experience of sight in ways that are superior to film, television, and photography in the near future" that means that nowadays human seeing is more advanced than any digital analog.

From the argument possible assumptions can be - no equipment exist currently that can match up the complexity of the eye.
technology will be able to replicate the existing complex mechanism of eye.

The first assumption can be found in option B.Also, if you negate the option B, it will undermine the argument.

Hence a sure shot answer.

I drilled down to option B and D. As both of them has some related info similar to arg: "the ability of the human visual system to make sense of an infinite variety of images" or "multiple-strand processing systems of the eye".

In choice D, The multiple-strand processing systems of the eye allows the human brain to “visualize” what a camera cannot. - which is very bold statement "camera cannot" - we never know, it could be in future.

In choice B, No video system or computerized camera currently available can match the ability of the human visual system to make sense of an infinite variety of images.

So, B.

+1 B.

However, this question doesn't seem like a true strengthen question, but more of an inference.

How is B the correct answer ?

Excerpt from the passage:

As more is known of how the eye processes the massive amount of information that it typically takes in, we may even be able to duplicate the experience of sight in ways that are superior to film, television, and photography in the near future.

If we MAY be able to , how can B which states No video system or computerized camera currently available can match the ability of the human visual system to make sense of an infinite variety of images be correct?

if anything, the passage hints that currently, film is superior to vision and in the future, with the current breakthroughs regarding the complexity of vision, that vision MAY be able to surpass the experience of sight that is generated by cameras.
