The early beginnings of color in displays gave birth to a new industry, an industry dedicated to the accurate characterization of the photometric and colorimetric properties of these displays. Today this industry is international in scope totaling millions of dollars in sales. Coupled with this instrumentation are measurement techniques, guides and standards for their use. Both national and international organizations are preparing these standards backed by the respective national standards institutes. The development of both the instrumentation and the measurement techniques will be traced from their early beginnings up to the present fully automated systems. A brief review of sources for the guides, test methods and standards in use and in preparation will also be presented.
