Illuminated displays used in the marine industry, like those in the automotive and aerospace industry, have to remain clear and readable in all kinds of weather, day or night. They also have to be resistant to water, dusty, vibration, and all the other harsh conditions of life at sea, and require rigorous quality testing to adhere to safety and operating standards.

Photometry is the science of measuring light as it is perceived by the human eye, and colorimetry applies the same principles to measuring the different wavelengths of light based on how we perceive color. Learn how humand vision is quantified and replicated in photometry-based imaging systems, and how these systems can help manufacturers in design and production to best assess the visual quality of displays, backlit components, and light sources as they are actually seen and experienced by users.

Emissive displays, such as those made from OLED or microLED technology, can present quality control challenges. Because each individual LED/microLED is its own emitter, these displays can be subject to a wide variation in luminance and color. To produce salable displays with a uniform appearance for the market, manufacturers need display metrology systems that can measure and correct displays at the pixel and subpixel level. See a case study of microLED correction with Jasper Display Corp.

AR/VR/MR displays are viewed just 1 - 3 inches from the surface of the eye, meaning any defects or lack of clarity in the display image can be glaringly obvious. Additionally, display performance issues such as slow refresh rate or distortion can negatively impact the user experience, even causing physical symptoms such as nausea and dizziness. Learn about mitigating these human factors in NED displays.

Head-up displays (HUDs) are starting to become a feature of new automobile models. Current 2D HUD technology projects flat images on a fixed viewing field, but soon a new generation of AR-enabled HUD systems integrated with automotive sensor data will project dynamic 3D images that interact with the visual environment. For accuracy and safety, HUD systems demand rigorous quality testing.

Digital signage has had a growing presence in public spaces since the 1990s, and is now commonplace in airports, shopping malls, sports venues, medical facilities, and anywhere that information or advertising can be displayed. MicroLED display technology promises to enable larger display screen sizes than ever before and is poised to future of high-end display walls and large-scale digital sigange.

Humans experience the world through our five senses: hearing, sight, taste, smell, and touch. We tend to be visually-oriented, taking in much of our information about the world through our eyes. Virtual reality aims to create an immersive experience for users by filling their entire field of view. But incorporating other sensory input can enhance the visual display aspect to create more vivid experiences - called "XR" for Extended Reality.
