Abstract

A method to measure the dynamic modulation transfer function (DMTF) of a liquid-crystal display (LCD) is proposed to characterize its performance when rendering motion images. The method includes a measurement system to capture the temporal luminance variation of a LCD while using a well-designed input data sequence and a simulation model based on smooth pursuit eye tracking and temporal light integration at the human retina. It predicts the perceived performance of a moving sine wave pattern on a LCD and subsequently calculates the DMTF. With this approach, several technologies to reduce motion blur were evaluated and discussed.
