A Survey of Large High-Resolution Display Technologies, Techniques, and Applications (PDF)

Virtual Reality Conference, IEEE 01/2006; DOI: 10.1109/VR.2006.20

ABSTRACT Continued advances in display hardware, computing power, networking, and rendering algorithms have all converged to dramatically improve large high-resolution display capabilities. We present a survey on prior research with large high-resolution displays. In the hardware configurations section we examine systems including multi-monitor workstations, reconfigurable projector arrays, and others. Rendering and the data pipeline are addressed with an overview of current technologies. We discuss many applications for large high-resolution displays such as automotive design, scientific visualization, control centers, and others. Quantifying the effects of large high-resolution displays on human performance and other aspects is important as we look toward future advances in display technology and how it is applied in different situations. Interacting with these displays brings a different set of challenges for HCI professionals, so an overview of some of this work is provided. Finally, we present our view of the top ten greatest challenges in large highresolution displays.

    ABSTRACT: We examined the systematic effects of display size on task performance as derived from a standard perceptual and cognitive test battery. Specifically, three experiments examined the influence of varying viewing conditions on response speed, response accuracy and subjective workload at four differing screen sizes under three different levels of time pressure. Results indicated a ubiquitous effect for time pressure on all facets of response while display size effects were contingent upon the nature of the viewing condition. Thus, performance decrement and workload elevation were evident only with the smallest display size under the two most restrictive levels of time pressure. This outcome generates a lower boundary threshold for display screen size for this order of task demand. Extrapolations to the design and implementation of all display sizes and forms of cognitive and psychomotor demand are considered.

    ABSTRACT: We present Munin, a software framework for building ubiquitous analytics environments consisting of multiple input and output surfaces, such as tabletop displays, wall-mounted displays, and mobile devices. Munin utilizes a service-based model where each device provides one or more dynamically loaded services for input, display, or computation. Using a peer-to-peer model for communication, it leverages IP multicast to replicate the shared state among the peers. Input is handled through a shared event channel that lets input and output devices be fully decoupled. It also provides a data-driven scene graph to delegate rendering to peers, thus creating a robust, fault-tolerant, decentralized system. In this paper, we describe Munin's general design and architecture, provide several examples of how we are using the framework for ubiquitous analytics and visualization, and present a case study on building a Munin assembly for multidimensional visualization. We also present performance results and anecdotal user feedback for the framework that suggests that combining a service-oriented, data-driven model with middleware support for data sharing and event handling eases the design and execution of high performance distributed visualizations.

    ABSTRACT: For medical display, the pixels on array panels are getting smaller. Therefore, flaw detection and measurement are getting more difficult and critical for managing yield and quality in a thin-film-transistor (TFT) array process. The TFT array testing technique has been used for flaw detection and process yield control. As the TFT array pixel size is getting smaller and the resolution is getting higher, both of them have encountered a performance limitation in detecting the critical small-pixel defect for the ultrahigh-resolution TFT array such as medical display applications. In this study, a novel approach for flaw detection is proposed. The proposed optomechatronics technique with interdigitized shorting bar design configuration is used for inspection. The experimental results show that, by using the voltage imaging technique, the flaw detection rate for small-pixel size, high-resolution TFT array has been effectively improved from 50% to 80%. The detected subpixel size for a TFT array panel can be smaller than 53 μm for a 30-inch ultrahigh-definition medical display application.
