Paper Abstract

We can all use, to a larger or lesser extent, the technological marvels that surround us and that we often depend on; without, however, really understanding how they function. But designing, buying, using and maintaining those devices does require a certain level of knowledge on the basics of that functioning, if one wants to avoid problems. Displays are a worth-while example of the marvels meant because of their ubiquity in modern life. A standard on displays, especially a new one, could provide the knowledge meant - and anyway deserves to be known by the people frequenting the EI Conferences. Therefore, a progress report on the production of the new ISO display standard is presented here for the third time. The standard contains: an introduction; all definitions used; the visual requirements for displays; three different methods to measure display properties; and analysis and compliance methods to verify whether a particular display complies with the requirements set. The standard is meant to provide knowledge for designers of displays, their users, and those that procure displays for these users. It is set up in such a way that emerging display technologies as are used in, for instance, SED and OLED, can be incorporated easily.
