Virtual reality has been referred to as the “ultimate empathy machine” since it allows users to experience any situation from any point of view. Studies have shown that AR/VR can shift a user’s attitudes and feelings, increasing both self-confidence and compassion for others. The immersive nature of virtual reality is what makes for such a powerful experience, but only if the AR/VR device works as intended. Effective development and QA testing helps ensure display and performance quality.

The prospect of foldable smart phones has been lingering just over the horizon for a few years now, with hints and rumors, protoypes, but no product launches...yet. Will 2019 finally be the year when foldable smart phones reach the market place? What's been taking so long? One of the challenges with foldable screens has been low yields for production of OLED displays—the technology that underlies most foldable devices. Learn more about this challenge and how effective display testing can help improve manufacturing yields and device quality.

Head-up diplays (HUDs) are becoming more common in both automobiles and airplanes, helping to increase safety and reduce distractions for drivers and pilots. In aviation, HUDs have been used for decades in military planes, and are fairly commonplace in large commercial aircraft. But to ensure that HUDs are serving their purpose effectively, there are multiple considerations—design, form factor, symbology, display quality—that have to be carefully addressed.

The standard analysis for “Black Mura” in automotive displays is widely accepted as the display uniformity measurement criteria for German and many other European automotive OEMs and display makers. Radiant ProMetric® Imaging Colorimeters paired with TrueTest™ Software have been employed for Black Mura standard testing for many years. Radiant has even documented the steps to show how to set up and apply our equipment for Black Mura testing to ensure display uniformity per the German Automotive OEM Work Group and DFF’s specifications.
