Title:Direct View Display Image System Contrast Ratio
 Document Number:ANSI/AVIXA V201.02:201X
 Type of Standard:Visual System Performance 
 Status:In Development 
 Description:This standard defines direct view display image system contrast ratio and its measurement. It applies to both permanently installed systems and live events. It applies to all types and sizes of direct view displays. This standard defines five contrast ratios based on content viewing categories. System contrast ratio refers to the image as it is presented to viewers in the environment as it will exist. Practical metrics to measure and validate the defined contrast ratios for conformance purposes are provided.

AVIXA's consensus standards development process is accredited by ANSI, a private, non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardization and conformity assessment systems. ANSI is the sole U.S. representative of the two major non-treaty international standards organizations, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and, via the U.S. National Committee (USNC), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Accreditation by ANSI signifies that the procedures used by AVIXA in connection with the development of American National Standards meet the Institute's essential requirements for openness, balance, consensus, right to appeal, and due process.
