Title Plasma display panels - Part 2-1: Measuring methods - Optical and optoelectrical
Project Number 23082
Abstract/Scope 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.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
