The spatial standard observer: A new tool for display metrology  (2007)
Abstract Header
In the design of displays, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." But until recently, the industry has lacked tools to estimate quality as seen by the human eye. Here, the development and application of the Spatial Standard Observer (SSO), a new tool for estimating the visibility of spatial patterns, is detailed. Similar to measurements of luminance, or of CIE color coordinates, the SSO provides another means of measuring displays in units that are meaningful to the human observer.
