The course provides a theoretical and practical introduction to the Society for Information Display Information Display Measurements Standard (IMDS) and its application for vision research. A PDF version of the standard is available for free to download from the ICDM website. A printed version of the standard can be ordered from the SID website.
The theoretical session includes an introduction to the complete IDMS, followed by an in-depth discussion of the fundamental measurements that vision scientists should consider making in their own laboratories. The measurements discussed will include:
The practical session will show attendees how to apply aspects of the IDMS by making measurements of their own laptop screen using a new free software Toolbox for MATLAB and instrumentation provided by CRS. The practical session will require attendees to bring a laptop with MATLAB and the latest release of the Psychophysics Toolbox installed (Psychtoolbox-3).
