Paper Abstract

The quest for color head- and helmet-mounted displays has led some designers to consider the use of field-sequential color (FSC) because it offers higher resolution than conventional color displays in a compact package. Unfortunately, FSC displays exhibit color breakup sometimes, and the viewing conditions under which this occurs have not been established very well. We performed an experiment to determine color-breakup thresholds for a simple FSC stimulus as a function of stimulus luminance, contrast, and retinal velocity. We developed equations that describe the results and can be used to predict whether color breakup will be visible for specified viewing conditions.
