BS EN 61988-2-1:2012

Plasma display panels. Measuring methods. Optical and optoelectrical

Status : Current   Published : April 2012



IEC 61988-2-1:2012 determines the following measuring methods for characterizing the performance of plasma display modules (PDP modules):

a) four per cent (4 %) window luminance;

b) luminance uniformity;

c) dark-room contrast ratio;

d) bright-room contrast ratio 100/70;

e) white chromaticity and chromatic uniformity;

f) colour gamut in the centre box;

g) module power and current consumption;

h) module power consumption using video signal;

i) module luminous efficacy, and

j) panel luminous efficacy.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: The first edition of IEC 61988-2-1 and IEC 61988-2-2 were combined and reconstructed in this document.
