In this kind of product the user interface especially on screen display(OSD) and remote controller, holds a key post and is critical factor of performance and usability. In spite of this importance, the user interface is designed by circurt engineer from a viewpoint of engineering on the basis of his experience and unsophisticated insight. Therefore this study clarifies a user- centered design process of OSD from the designer's viewpoint on the basis of development case and gives a guideline for each stage in consideration of characteristic features that the user interface design of OSD is highly enfluenced by hardware specification and restricted by remote controller as input device.
