"This chapter describes a series of laboratory investigations in the determination of image quality for flat panel and cathode-ray-tube displays. Both literal images and alphanumerics are considered based on the notion that image quality should primarily be a function of the ability of the observer using the display to obtain the desired information from that display. Criteria for the observer's performance are efficiency (expressed as the time rate of information gathering) and accuracy (expressed as the error rate). Because a number of design variables of electronic displays directly influence image quality, measurements are introduced that relate physical indices of image quality to design variables of the display system and to observer performance. Thus, the concept of image quality is presented as a problem encompassing three separate areas of measurement or design: physical measures of the display, observer performance, and design variables directly related to the physical measures."--P. 1.
