    Abstract

    Visual displays have various limitations that can affect the results of vision research experiments. This study compares several characteristics of CRT (Hewlett Packard 7650) and TFT (LG Flatron L227 WT and Samsung 2233 RZ) monitors, including luminance and colour spatial homogeneity, luminance changes with viewing angle, contrast linearity and warm-up characteristics. In addition, the psychophysical performance in grating contrast sensitivity test for both CRT and TFT monitors was compared. The TFT monitors demonstrated spatial non-homogeneity (‘mura’) with up to 50% of luminance change across the screen and a more significant luminance viewing angle dependence compared with CRT. The chromaticity of the white point showed negligible variation across the screen. Both types of monitors required a warm-up time of the order of 60 min. Despite the physical differences between monitors, visual contrast sensitivity performance measured with the two types of monitors was similar using both static and flickering gratings.
