Chapter 8: Size and Resolution Performance Requirements
The ability to see fine detail on a monitor is a function of various size-related parameters. These parameters ultimately define the Cm performance of the display - the ability to see small, low-contrast detail. This chapter provides a set of size/resolution specifications and associated measurement procedures, beginning with a listing of the requirements and their definitions followed by a section justifying the requirements based on previous studies and the current state of technology. Measurement procedures and test targets are provided where necessary. As in the previous chapter, measurement procedures have been drawn from several sources.
