OSA Technical Group Special Webinar: Display Calibration for Internet and At-home Human Vision, Visual Perception and Color Research
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led to the sustained closure of many research laboratories. Many vision and colour researchers have therefore pivoted to running psychophysical and psychological experiments remotely, i.e. via internet platforms or at home. One of the challenges for these endeavours is that displays will be largely uncalibrated, as laboratory-grade instruments are typically not available. In this webinar, we will explore principles of monitor calibration, and what methods might be used to get aspects of visual displays calibrated in the absence of a laboratory-grade spectrometer or photometer.
