Abstract:

Large displays are common in modern command centers, yet the rationale for their use is typically weak. A literature search revealed little previous work comparing performance of teams with large group displays versus individual CRTs. The most applicable previous studies used static tasks and photographic projection systems. The study described here used a complex, dynamic task which required extensive interaction between members of three-person teams to achieve best performance. A comparison was made between the performance of three-person teams viewing either one large screen display or three individual CRTs. Results indicate that display size did not strongly affect team performance, although there were differences in the details of task performance that are attributable to display variables. Keywords Large screen wall displays group displays command and control command centers computer-human interaction man-machine interface.
