This paper describes how, in a consumer television application, the glass transmission coefficient of a CRT (or plasma) display should vary as a function of the illumination level (measured on the display) in order to obtain optimal perceived quality. The study was concerned with the perceptual evaluation of five identical television sets, but with different glass transmission coefficients, on quality and six quality-related perceptual attributes. The results show how the optimal transmission coefficient depends on the diffuse ambient illumination, and how the overall quality depends on the individual quality-related attributes.
