CRT Display Evaluation Notes

OSD and Display Evaluation Notes

Viewsonic have a laid out a comprehensive OSD, but navigation is hampered by the less than clear control panel as we mentioned previously. Still, for a professional who is able to spend the time setting up their monitor for a particular resolution or computer, there are a seemingly endless assortment of controls to tweak the display into perfection.

Factory presets are generally pretty good, with only a very slight trapezoidal distortion noticeable to us when the Viewsonic P95f+B arrived at our labs. This was quickly corrected with a grid test pattern and a few minutes in the on screen menus.

The following controls are available on the menus; Contrast, brightness, H. size, H. position, V. size, V. position, pincushion, pin balance, trapezoid, parallelogram, rotation, degauss, moiré reduction, H. convergence, V. convergence, purity, ViewMeter® language, ViewMatch® color, data recall.

PCstats CRT Display Evaluation Criteria:

To aid our evaluation of Cathode Ray Tube based displays we work with a program called Nokia Monitor Test. The software has been designed specifically to help with the proper configuration of any display, but also has the added benefit of illustrating deficiencies in the quality of image being presented.

While glaringly obvious problems would be immediately obvious to anyone looking at a simple page of text, the monitor test program stresses the display to the 'limit'. By doing this we can see exactly where the strengths and weaknesses of a particular display lie.

The program consists of twelve multi-screen tests, each designed to test one particular facet of a displays qualities. An example from each of the test-screen is shown below.

Geometry

Resolution

Brightness/Contrast
High Voltage

Moire

Colour
Convergence

Jitter

Focus

Readability

Note: We let the monitor warm up for at least 30 minutes before attempting to perform our visual tests on the quality of the picture display. This gives the CRT time to reach optimal operating conditions.
