The role of display resolution in visual information processing was investigated in 2 experiments. Experiment 1 examined the effects of 2 CRT conditions (resolutions of 60 and 120 dots per inch [dpi]) and a paper control condition (255 dpi) on proofreading speed and accuracy. The results showed that reading performance was significantly better in the paper condition than in the 2 CRT conditions. Experiment 2 examined the effects of 3 different CRT resolutions (62, 69, and 89 dpi) on eye… Expand
Aging, Visual Performance and Eyestrain in Different Screen Technologies
The focus of the study was the analysis of visual performance of elder workers with different screen technologies. Independent variables were display type (high quality CRT vs. TFT) and age ofExpand
CRT versus LCD: Effects of refresh rate, display technology and background luminance in visual performance.
TLDR
It is suggested that replacing CRTs with LCDs will improve ergonomics in workplaces using visual displays by increasing the refresh rate of the CRT but a very high refresh rate may be required. Expand
Effects of high pixel density on reading comprehension, proofreading performance, mood state, and physical discomfort
TLDR
Reading comprehension, reading speed, and proofreading performance are unaffected by pixel densities above 132 ppi, but reading from high-resolution screens seems to be less exhausting at least subjectively. Expand
A visual ergonomic evaluation of different screen types and screen technologies with respect to discrimination performance.
TLDR
Physical measurements revealed that luminance and contrast values change with varying viewing angles (anisotropy), most pronounced in Notebook-LCDs, followed by external LCDs and CRTs, which is considered to be as a limiting factor deteriorating visual performance. Expand
Effects of screen resolution and column ratio on search performance and subjective preferences
TLDR
The generated results enabled the development of design guidelines applicable to future web page interface design, and revealed that the 1024 × 768 resolution yields shorter reaction times than the 800 ×-600 resolution. Expand
Task Performance Metrics on Liquid Crystal Displays
Twenty participants performed a selection and targeting task where performance indices were recorded. User performance varied as the sizes and resolutions of the screen changed during taskExpand
The impact of paper-based versus computerized presentation on text comprehension and memorization
TLDR
Overall results show that if all the conditions of paper-based versus computerized presentation, reading performances are not significantly different, and surface comprehension was better than either semantic or inference comprehension. Expand
Effects of Information Layout on Reading Speed: Differences between Paper and Monitor Presentation
TLDR
No significant differences in terms of reading speed and preference among the three information layouts (one-column, two-column and three-column formats) used in this experiment were found. Expand

Effects of luminance and illuminance on visual fatigue and arousal during digital reading
TLDR
Results showed that reading under high levels of screen luminance increases visual fatigue, as reflected by a decrease of eye blinks, and exposure to higher levels of either luminance or illuminance increased alertness and performance. Expand

The effect of task contrast on visual performance and visual fatigue at a constant illuminance
Three visually demanding tasks: proof reading, search and signal detection, were devised and produced in a range of contrast from 0.09 to 0.87. Each subject performed all three tasks at one contrastExpand
Effects of VDT resolution on visual fatigue and readability: an eye movement approach.
TLDR
The effects of VDT resolution on visual fatigue and readability were studied and no significant difference between the high and the standard VDT could be detected, but for very small characters, higher resolution improved readability. Expand
Effects of secondary tasks on search performance
TLDR
Findings are explained in the framework of a two-process model of visual search which assumes that two operations are performed simultaneously during each fixation, that is, automatic detection and controlled search. Expand
[Rest position of the eyes and its effect on viewing distance and visual fatigue in computer display work].
TLDR
Visual fatigue did not depend on effective vergence discrepancy, that is, the deviation between the resting level of the vergence system and the actual angle of convergence, and such a relationship was not found for further dependent variables. Expand
Visual Performance on CRT Screens and Hard-Copy Displays
TLDR
It was concluded that screen RAR is an important variable to consider in the design of CRTs because significantly better visual search performance was obtained for high-RAR screens and for hard-copy print than for low- RAR screens. Expand
Reading from Screen versus Paper: There is No Difference
TLDR
No significant difference was found in either reading speed or comprehension between screen and paper, or between dark and light character displays, however. Expand
Reading of Continuous Text on Video Screens
In three experiments, the finding of slower reading of text from a video screen than from a book was replicated, and several possible reasons for this effect were explored. Extra time (9 s) taken toExpand
Eyestrain in VDU Users: Viewing Distance and the Resting Position of Ocular Muscles
TLDR
The more distant the individual's dark convergence, the greater was the visual strain at the 50-cm viewing distance, and during work at a visual display unit (VDU), visual strain was stronger than at 100 cm (with characters twice as large). Expand
Reading from CRT Displays Can Be as Fast as Reading from Paper
TLDR
It is shown that people read more slowly from CRT displays than from paper, and a series of six experiments shows why, and the explanation centers on the image quality of the characters. Expand
Reading Is Slower from CRT Displays than from Paper: Attempts to Isolate a Single-Variable Explanation
TLDR
This report summarizes ten experiments and several more analyses that seek to explain the cause of this reading-speed difference, and the tentative conclusion is that the difference is due to a combination of variables, probably centering on the image quality of the characters themselves. Expand
