Abstract:

A review of the literature was made as part of Task 6723-01, Wide-Angle High Resolution Color TV Technique for Training Systems. Forty-one references were consulted, twelve of which described research in applied experimental settings. Subjects in ten of the twelve studies showed some improvement in performance as a result of using color in the displays. The decision as to whether a color or monochrome television system should be used appears to be dependent on the specific application and cost factors. If either type could be produced and maintained for equivalent costs, then there is evidence to suggest that performance with color TV would be as good, and for some applications, better than monochrome TV.
