Modelling and Simulation of the Visual Characteristics of Modern Display Technologies under Office Work Conditions

Cel

The project objective was to design, engineer and build a hardware device able to simulate, in real time, a broad range of flat-panel displays. These include electro-luminescent (EL), thin film EL, memory EL, active matrix liquid crystal (LC), ferroelectric LC and supertwisted LC. This device can be used by office automation and display manufacturers to test the properties of new technologies and to optimise the display parameters in order to obtain good image quality and maximum user acceptability. The simulator facility can also help display designers and users (office automation manufacturers, user organisations, etc) in the definition of new products and applications.
Specific objectives were to:
-compare various simulated display technologies and technical solutions according to user acceptability criteria
-perform ergonomic experiments, under prolonged office work conditions, to find the relationships between technology-dependent display properties, visual discomfort and image quality.

Specific objectives were to:
compare various simulated display technologies and technical solutions according to user acceptability criteria;
perform ergonomic experiments, under prolonged office work conditions, to find the relationships between technology dependent display properties, visual discomfort and image quality.

Achievements were:
demonstration of simulator;
top level design of the simulation software required for real time simulation of display technologies;
implementation and demonstration of versions of an EL display model;
design of the high resolution digitally controlled colour monitor required to visualize the simulated displays;
design of a shading correction technique for cathode ray tube (CRT);
construction of a functional model of visual perception.

Exploitation
The simulation facilities, which can help display and office automation manufacturers shorten the design cycle of displays acceptable to users, are accessible at the Universiteit van Twente. Those interested should contact the university directly as follows:

A further development of the high-resolution digitally controlled colour monitor developed by Barco was used in project 2649, VASARI, and is now available on the market.
