Compares current methods of testing congenital colour deficiencies with tests designed to employ colour VDUs. Seeks to develop tools for studying colour deficiencies and to formulate general guidelines regarding colour selection for work that must be performed on colour VDUs. 12 persons with congenital colour vision deficiencies were judged and matched colours presented on a full-colour VDU. 4 persons with normal colour vision participated as controls. Contains color charts and numerous graphs.

Page 1 - ... chromaticity diagram; colors were chosen from one tritan, three protan, and three deutan confusion lines. The results show that the ability to discriminate VDU color stimuli is greatly impaired in protanopes and deutranopes, compared with both normal and deuteranomalous observers. When pairs of color stimuli lay on a protan or deutan confusion line, protanopes and deuteranopes frequently accepted them as equivalent even when the stimuli were separated by large distances in the chromaticity diagram....

Page 12 - Z(B) ln these equations X(R) indicates the X tristimulus value at digital level R of the red gun, X(G) the X tristimulus value at digital level G of the green gun, and X(B) the X tristimulus value at digital level B of the blue gun.
Page 48 - Adam36, fie 48 f every discrimination ellipse is drawn ten times its correct size with relation to the coordinate scale of the chromaticity diagram. The centers of the ellipses are placed at their proper locations in the chromaticity diagram. To compare...
Page 31 - For a colour stimulus to appear in one of these two upper squares, the subject had just to mark it at its place on the VDU screen with a cursor and a mouse and then click the mouse. At the click, the marked colour stimuli would appear in one of the two upper squares. The subject could make it appear in any of the two squares by clicking the mouse.
Page 11 - Apparatus: The colour video display system The colour video display system which is used to display the colour stimuli is a micro VAX with an image memory by Raster Technologies, Inc. Model One/80.
Page 31 - We tested colour stimuli from one confusion line and one lightness range at a time. The remaining area of the screen was white, ie all the three phosphors were set at the maximum digital levels.
Page 5 - Pickford-Nicolson anomaloscopes, can not be reproduced on the VDU. Thus it is impossible to use a VDU to differentiate deuter- and protanomalous observers from deuteranopes and protanopes with the same set of chromaticity coordinates used in anomaloscopes. However, the same set of chromaticity coordinates as in anomaloscope testing might be used with a...
Page 16 - The observer was seated 80 cm in front of the screen with his chin placed on a chin-rest.
