Display Marketplace: Making Color in LCDs

Color filters play a key role in the balance between image quality and power consumption in LCDs.  With high resolution a key performance feature, and LCDs facing competition from OLEDs with superior color gamut, color-filter designs will need to continue to evolve.

Frontline Technology: Characterization of 3-D Gray-to-Gray Crosstalk with a Matrix of Lightness Differences

Stereoscopic televisions, which are mainly striped-retarder displays with passive glasses or time-sequential displays with active glasses, are emerging in the consumer market. 3-D corsstalk is an important characteristic that defines the quality of these displays.  A new crosstalk metric is proposed that uses an intuitive matrix representation with perceptually relevant lightness-difference values instead of the single percentage value that is often used.

Q&A: A Conversation with the People Behind the IDMS

The Information Display Measurements Standard (IDMS) represents years of work by many individuals in the display industry who form the International Committee for Display Metrology (ICDM).  The standard would not exist in its present form, however, without the contributions of ICDM committee chair Joe Miseli and IDMS Editor Ed Kelley.  Both Miseli and Kelley recently described the challenges and highlights of the process.
