Paper Abstract

There are several important international standards in development that have implications for Flat Panel Display Technology. There are ergonomic standards directed toward the display work place and the flat panel standards directed toward the technical interface between suppliers of flat panel subassemblies and manufacturers of systems that employ flat panels as a principal or ancillary electro-optical device.

The trend in the ergonomic case is to standardize the work place. Therefore, the standards are developed with a view to homologate the union of the environment, the equipment, the application and the end user. Since, to date, more than 10 CRT displays are in the office work place for every flat panel, it is natural that the body of ergonomic data upon which these standards are based anticipate the use of the CRT.

Since no up-to-date standards for measurement and description of flat panel displays exist, a work station developer cannot rely on specification sheets from different flat panel manufacturers for decision making data. The industry has still not come to view itself as required to provide a valuable convenience over CRT (portability or unique space utilization) while imposing as few compromises in function as possible.

This paper will discuss those elements of emerging international standards which are key, and outlining the implications for various technologies. The implications will be projected into the future to address: “What has to change for flat panels to compete in the 90s?”.
