JVM Research and Technology
Making Ideas Happen
Engineering, Research, and Technology for displays and analog-dominant engineering
JVM Research is an independent research and consulting organization available for consulting, contracting, or collaboration for your projects.
The role of JVM Research personnel with regard to the ICDM is immense. Our chief engineer was instrumental in helping to form the ICDM and is its chair.
The ICDM (International Committee for Display Metrology) is a committee in SID (Society for Information Display) which produced a display measurement standard, called IDMS1 (Information Display Measurements Standard, version 1). That standard consists of many methods to help quantify the performance of displays. It also provides additional information such as display references, tutorials, instructionals, a glossary, term definitions, and more. One who knows nothing about displays nor will ever make a measurement on one can puruse the document and learn much about displays, display performance, and what the specs mean, because that same person will likely purchase multiple displays in their life, and it will help them to know moare about what the specs mean.
This preeminent display measurment stadard (IDMS1) is free of charge as a PDF download, and can be obtained from the ICDM web site www.icdm-sid.org.
JVM Research contributes much to the ICDM. It contributes graphics, test patterns, templates, as well as authoring a number of the measurements in the ICDM standard (IDMS).
We also chair the ICDM and organize activities, meetings, and design and maintain the www.icdm-sid.org web site for the ICDM.
— In 1995, Joe Miseli of Sun Microsystems and Doug Baker of Compaq put together a propose in VESA to help form a group to write a measurements standard for the relatively new flat panels, especially LCDs which were just starting to be seen in computer level display at that time. (It would almost another decade before the LCD's would be ready for TV's.
— This was called the FPDM (Flat Panel Display Metrology) group..
— Later that year, Ed Kelley of NIST (now with Keltek Research) joined and became chair and editor of the FPDM.
— By 2001, the FPDM had produced the 2nd version of the standard, FPDM2.
— ln 2005, JVM Research Chief Engineer, Joe Miseli, became chair of the FPDM.
— In 2007, the FPDM left VESA and became the ICDM. Later that year, the ICDM became a committee in SID.
— In 2012, the ICDM produced their first standard, the IDMS, version 1.
— Today, the ICDM is working on the next version of the ICDM standard (IDMS2), new test patterns for the standard, measurement templates, new and better graphics, support methods, promotional material and methods, as well as content for the ICDM2 itself.
Our role remains quite active in the ICDM to produce a standard to help all who deal with displays -- including to help those who purchase displays by providing a strong reference to help give guidelines for specifying displays correctly..
You can see that many of the publications written by Joe Miseli address the ICDM and its standard. Chief Engineer Page.
