Projection screens tailored to the human eye
The human eye is a very complex mechanism that can adjust to a variety of different environments. You can scan your local newspaper by the light of the moon – just as you can in broad daylight. But when you force the eye to accommodate light conditions outside its comfort zone, it protests. A headache begins. Eyelids grow heavy. The mind starts to wander...
Eye-gonomics is a term we’ve coined to describe the science of designing presentation equipment to fit the viewer, rather than forcing the viewer to try to accommodate the presentation.
An excellent presentation experience requires balance. In a bright meeting room, a conventional front projection screen produces an image that looks weak and washed out. And if you darken the room, the image often becomes too bright. In both cases, the imbalance between image and environment frequently results in viewer eyestrain, fatigue and headaches – in other words, poor eye-gonomics.
An eye-gonomical display, on the other hand, does two things:
- It is balanced with the brightness of the surrounding environment, so that the eye doesn’t have to adapt constantly.
- It ensures a contrast level in the perceived screen image that fits the eye’s need for comfortable viewing.
