CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) softcopy image display systems have found widespread acceptance in the image exploitation area in applications ranging from remote sensing to medical diagnosis. However, to extract the maximum performance from these display systems, careful setup, control and monitoring of important display parameters is required. This paper describes a key set of quality assessment parameters needed to quantify the performance of CRT-based image display systems, and a hardware analyzer to measure them. The analyzer is a portable device based on a linear photodiode array and small minicomputer which quickly allows both calibration and assessment of the overall "health" of the CRT display to be made.
