Much of the guidance provided to designers of visual displays is highly simplified because of historical limitations of visual display hardware and software. Vast improvements have been made in processors, communication channel bandwidth, and display screen performance over the past 10 years; and the pace of these visual system improvements is accelerating. It is now time to undertake a critical review of the true performance capability of the human visual system (HVS). Designers can now expect… 

Visual Perception in Simulated Reality

This thesis presents the work conducted as part of an Engineering Doctorate in Digital Media with the Centre for Digital Entertainment in collaboration with Disney Research on the construction of a commercially accessible, enthusiast level, perceptually augmented virtual reality environment.

Virtual reality: a reality for future military pilotage?

With the evolving technology, there are many technological issues and human factors considerations that need to be addressed before a pilot is placed within a virtual cockpit.

Visual Quality with a Focus on 3D Blur Discrimination and Texture Granularity

3D blur discrimination experiments are conducted to measure the just noticeable additional blur required to differentiate a target blur from the reference blur level and it is demonstrated that the proposed model can be used for rate-distortion control by allowing the automatic selection of the needed compression ratio for a target visual quality.

Introduction to Microdisplays Introduction 1.1 Microdisplays 1.2 Human Factors Spatial Frequency (cycles/deg)

Advances in several technologies related to projection displays and near-to-eye (NTE) displays have intensifi ed interest in these areas. Development of the microdisplay is a key technology. The term

Display science and technology for defense and security

A top-level roadmap is provided to summarize the defense and security S&T strategy and the results of a Department of Defense (DoD) Special Technology Area Review (STAR) on Displays are reviewed.

Interactive exploration of historic information via gesture recognition

Techniques to enable the raw data coming from motion sensing input devices to be used to control an interactive exhibit are investigated and the effectiveness of the techniques are shown.

Time multiplexed optical shutter (TMOS) display technology for avionics platforms

Time Multiplexed Optical Shutter (TMOS) is a new approach to flat panel light valve display technology that addresses display requirements in avionics applications, particularly head-down cockpit

Decomposition method for fast computation of gigapixel-sized Fresnel holograms on a graphics processing unit cluster.

A parallel computation method for large-size Fresnel computer-generated hologram (CGH) is reported, showing its ability to avoid communication overhead and thereby fully utilize the computing power of parallel devices.

An Entropy-based Inverse Tone Mapping Operator for High Dynamic Range Applications

This paper proposes a novel high visual quality iTMO that addresses shortcomings of existing approaches, yielding HDR image quality worth the expectations of the emerging HDR technology.

This paper reviews the computational techniques evolved for improving the visual quality of images and focuses on multi-scale decomposition approach to achieve the desired variation in contrast and brightness of the images.



LCD versus CRT Displays: A Comparison of Visual Search Performance for Colored Symbols

The results argue against the use of current LCD technology when off-axis viewing is likely and color coding is used.

High refresh rate and oculomotor adaptation facilitate reading from video displays.

Reading from a video display terminal (VDT) was tested at screen refresh rates of 500 Hz and 60 Hz and subjects were unaware of refresh conditions, differences in their reading rates, and types of eye movements they generated.

Review of ultraresolution (10-100 megapixel) visualization systems built by tiling commercial display components

This paper reviews the status of ultra-resolution systems based on commercial components and describes a vision for their integration into advanced yet affordable military command centers, simulator/trainers, and, eventually, crew stations in air, land, sea and space systems.

Visual Processes in Reading and Reading Disabilities

This book presents evidence for a Visual-Processing-Deficit Subtype Among Disabled Readers among Disabled Readers, as well as a review of Visual Processes in Reading: Directions for Research and Theory.

Doing the Same Work with Hard Copy and with Cathode-Ray Tube (CRT) Computer Terminals

Much public concern has centered on possible fatiguing effects of using CRT terminals in one's work. Previous experiments have not carefully distinguished the effects of using a CRT display per se

Measurements of JND property of HVS and its applications to image segmentation, coding, and requantization

The measured JND data shows that 55 gray levels per pixel are sufficient to represent an image under normal viewing conditions and that 64 gray levels are sufficient under any viewing condition.
