Dead pixel Tom’s Hardware investigation into 134406-2 pixels 8 pages. ISO standards Display technology. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In addition, the cluster rule stipulates there should never be more than two defective lit and unlit pixels in any one circle with a radius of five pixels. What It Actually Says Updated inISO International Standards Organizationthe standard that all monitor manufacturers refer to, stipulates an array of ergonomic requirements on the quality of liquid crystal display images.

Retrieved from ” https: September Learn how and when to remove this template message. I bought an iMac G5 with insight, and it had a dead pixel.

Now it does no more than minimize the damage. The criteria involved are brightness, contrast, reflection, uniformity of brightness and colors, flicker, character analysis and All reputable manufacturers conform to and support the ISO standard.

ISO standards by standard number. If you want some fun, try and interpret them by yourself. Otherwise, it will be displayed “spam protected” Website: Updated inISO International Standards Organizationthe standard that all monitor manufacturers refer to, stipulates an array of ergonomic requirements on the quality of liquid crystal display images.


ISO is an ISO standard, with the full title “Ergonomic requirements for work with visual displays based on flat panels — Part 2: Fortunately nobody refers 13406- it. Subscribe to our newsletter.

Apart from some exceptions, all manufacturers refer to Class 2. By the way, it’s time to thank ISO itself, and especially Roger Frost and Hans-Juergen Herrmann, for their help in decoding the pages of the tome.

Lastly, the standard stipulates the number of errors allowed per million pixels on the panel.

ISO – Wikipedia

Also counted as defective are screens with several red, green or blue pixels occurring three times or more on a square of 5 x 5 pixels. Class 2 is typical. More dead pixels are allowed on a 17″ screen than on a 15″ one. The standard also defines four levels of quality. Actually, it turns out that the ISO Class 2 standard is not an adequate guarantee of quality.

What is an acceptable level of dead pixels

Class 2 panels are more complicated. Will not be displayed if you enter a website below. It is best known to end consumers for defining a series of flat-panel display “classes” with different numbers of permitted defects or ” dead pixels “. Very annoying if you end up with a screen that has one. One solution to this problem would be to sell these defected panels at a lower price than normal ones, clearly indicating the presence of such defects.


Class 4, the lowest, allows up to ! Class 4 represents the reject criteria in manufacture.

It is now crucial for manufacturers to adopt Class stzndard, the only one that ensures a perfect display, or a new standard should be adopted. The Actual Figures These are all laid out in a table.

To find the total number of defective pixels allowed, standarrd up the defects of Types 1, 2 and 3. The standard lists four classes of devices, where a device of a specified class may contain a certain maximum number of defective pixels. The concentration criteria distinguish between firstly the number of white or black pixels occurring in a particular area cluster and secondly the sub-pixel failures standzrd flashing pixels occurring within a cluster.

Where implemented, the interpretation of the standard by the panel or end product manufacturer and effects in terms of labeling of 13460-2, what class of panel is used, etc. This page was last edited on 28 Septemberat For the different types of pixel fault, a distinction is made between illuminated pixels, dark pixels and sub-pixel failures or flashing pixels.

This, of course, tickled my attention, as my assumption was that by default, if I buy a flat screen monitor, it’s without pixel faults ‘dead pixels’ are dots of the screen that don’t display correctly, e. Type 4 Fault Cluster:
