Abstract

The image quality of a color liquid-crystal display monitor is studied by changing the contrast and the luminance levels. The resolution is assessed with modulation transfer function area (MTFA) that is measured at nine different combinations of the luminance and contrast. At these combinations, we measure the chromaticity coordinates and luminance of red-green-blue channels as a function of the digital–analog convert value. We analyze the relations among MTFA value, constant-channel chromaticity, color gamut, and maximum luminance of a white pattern. From the results, the combination of levels is found that provides both high resolution and good color reproduction.
