The only thing I can think relevant regarding projector/monitors in a
NOC situation would be general eye strain issues, which should be
taken in to account in the same way as keyboard/chair positioning etc
by whoever is responsible for health and safety. Anything beyond eye
strain is probably just getting in to colour reproduction discussions
which are largely irrelivant in a NOC.

I for example have all my monitors set to a lower colour temperature
and dimmed as much as feasable, colour reproduction is terrible but
great for avoiding eye strain. I switch back to reasonably normal
settings for watching videos and films etc, but during normal NOC
operation I doubt the colour accuracy needs to be able to distinguish
more than than green/yellow/red (with maybe some shades between).
