Abstract : Five subjects served in a laboratory experiment to determine the effects of luminance degradations in the three primary color channels of a seven-color film projection additive color display. Positive performance and the incidence of errors were determined for a control condition and four levels of output reduction (20, 50, 62.5, and 84%) in each of the primary channels. Effects were determined for overall performance as well as ability to read characters in each of the seven resultant colors: red, blue, green, yellow, magenta, cyan, and white. Recommendations are provided concerning tolerances for luminance reduction of the primary channels, colors to be selected for coding purposes, and application of the data to non-projection systems such as CRT phosphors and electro-luminescent displays.
