According to MIL-HDBK-87213, the goal in full color displays is to have the color primaries widely separated and/or provide filtering such that they will stay widely separated when exposed to, and mixed with, ambient light. Modern color displays boast a phenomenal number of colors, typically based on the number of luminance (gray) levels per color sub-pixel raised to a power determined by the number of distinct color sub-pixels. Because display color should (“must” per the given handbook) be evaluated to assure that it is fully usable and aesthetically acceptable, this paper reports preliminary findings in the determination of Just Noticeable Differences (JNDs) in luminance for the red, green, and blue color primaries over a given luminance range for a particular Display Under Test (DUT).
