This is the long anticipated update to the original recommended practice document, SMPTE RP166:1995 'Critical Viewing Conditions for Evaluation of Color Television Pictures.'

Thank you very much Alan.

This is very interesting reading.
For someone, like myself, who is not that familiar with ambient video calibration, could I ask for clarification in regards to monitor heights positioning of 7cm per 2.5 inches of the screen/minitor size.
If my Plasma screen is 55" that would mean 55"/2.5"= 22 x 7cm = 154cm .
Is the value of 154cm heights measured from the floor to the centre of the screen or from the floor to the botom of the screen?

Much appreciated.

Very useful information provided in here. Thank you.

Kind regards.
