Title: The ICDM International Display Measurement Standard - SID's First Standard

The ICDM (International Committee for Display Metrology) is the first standards development group within SID. This is the same metrology group who wrote the FPDM (Flat Panel Display Measurement standard) for VESA. Now that the group is part of SID, the ICDM is working on the final stages of the most comprehensive display measurement standard yet produced, the IDMS (International Display Measurement Standard). The standard defines metrology for a number of new areas, including 3D/stereo, motion artifacts measurements and assessment, temporal measurements never standardized before, dynamic contrast, front projector and projection-screen metrics, many grayscale and color-scale metrics, touch screens, expanded metrology for ambient contrast and other reflection measurements…and much more! The IDMS catalogs standardized methods to characterize displays of almost every type, with a range of measurements from common parameters often used to market displays, to state-of-the-art methods which capture important operating characteristics that have never had standardized quantification methods. In addition to the standardized measurements, the IDMS includes information on analysis methods applied to measurements, tutorials, overviews, metrology discussions, tables, references and a glossary, hundreds of metrology and reference items all within one cover. Joe’s presentation will consists of an overview of the ICDM and the IDMS standard, along with brief descriptions of some of the specialized areas included in the standard. If you have any interest in measuring and evaluating the quality of displays, don’t miss this meeting!
