IEC 61988-2-1:2012 determines the following measuring methods for characterizing the performance of plasma display modules (PDP modules):
a) four per cent (4 %) window luminance;
b) luminance uniformity;
c) dark-room contrast ratio;
d) bright-room contrast ratio 100/70;
e) white chromaticity and chromatic uniformity;
f) colour gamut in the centre box;
g) module power and current consumption;
h) module power consumption using video signal;
i) module luminous efficacy, and
j) panel luminous efficacy.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: The first edition of IEC 61988-2-1 and IEC 61988-2-2 were combined and reconstructed in this document.
