The degraded images of dynamic objects obtained by using a phosphor-based electro-optical display are analyzed in terms of dynamic modulation transfer function (DMTF) and temporal characteristics of the display system. The direct correspondence between the DMTF and image smear is used in developing real-time techniques for the restoration of degraded images.
