The display industry converged on Los Angeles last week for the Society for Information Display’s (SID) annual Display Week, an event combining technical symposium, business conference, and exhibition. One of the hottest topics this year was Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR and VR), with in-depth presentations on the technology of these displays, applications, and challenges. Radiant exhibited at the show with our AR/VR Lens solution for measuring near-eye displays (NEDs) that simulates the size, position, and field of view of the human eye for accurate, efficient pixel- and sub-pixel-level defect detection.
Radiant's AR/VR Lens captures 120° horizontal field of view, to test and measure luminance, chromaticity, contrast, MTF, image distortion, image sticking, and x,y image position.
Meanwhile, Radiant's own Chief Solutions Officer Doug Kreysar shared his perspective on the industry with Jenny Donelan of SID, in an interview published in the May 18 issue of Information Display Magazine. Among the highlights, Doug explains the history of Radiant, from optical-design company to international light & color measurement innovator and member of the Konica Minolta Sensing group, talks about measurement challenges of AR/VR devices, and looks at the future potential of these technologies in industries from military to medical.
And if you're looking for your next book or movie recommendation, Doug suggests Ready Player One for a look at a future where virtual reality is pervasive in our daily lives (although he doesn't endorse their dystopian vision). Read the interview...
