From digital billboards and sport stadiums, to malls and hospitals, large-format digital displays are showing up everywhere. While often used for Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) advertising, they can also provide useful information and interactive self-serve functions. Learn about the various types of signage and video displays and some of the unique quality control challenges they present.

Augmented reality (AR) may be hot in the marketplace right now, but it’s nothing new in military aircraft. AR and virtual reality (VR) systems are common in the aerospace and defense industries, with applications ranging from manufacuring quality control to training to combat operations. Innovative new systems are integrating AR into the cockpit to enhance pilot awareness and safety.

OLED displays provide visual and performance improvements over traditional LCD displays, and they've become common in small consumer displays such as smart phones and watches, but OLED production challenges and low yields continue to plague manufacturers of larger displays like televisions. Inkjet printing of OLEDs is a promising approach that could help bring large-screen OLED displays to the mass market.

Today’s device displays rely more and more on small, emissive components like LEDs and OLEDs to provide the high-resolution viewing experience that consumers have come to expect. To do this, displays are being made with smaller pixels resulting in many more pixels per square inch. To measure these increasingly tiny pixels and emitters—which in miniLED and microLED screens can be microscopic—Radiant's Microscope Lens provides the precision and high-resolution needed.

The invention of Blue LEDs in the 1990s was a significant scientific and technological breakthrough that enabled the development of the phosphor-coated white LEDs that are used many of today's display and lighting products. However, there are also concerns about human exposure to blue wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. While blue light has been shown to disrupt sleep patterns, are there other health risks?

The word moiré describes an interference pattern—a form of aliasing—that can appear on images. When using imaging devices to inspect displays, it's usually necessary to remove the moiré pattern as one of the pre-processing steps. A common method is simply to defocus the image. While this removes moiré patterns, it sacrifices image clarity, and is not a good solution for inspecting pixel-dense and emissive displays like OLED and microLED. Learn about Radiant's moiré removal approach that preserves image focus and resolution.

The automotive industry often takes a lead role in proliferating new technologies, and this has never been truer than with displays. New vehicles are incorporating multiple visual display panels, from dashboards and center stacks, HUDs and integrated camera monitoring systems, to individual passenger entertainment screens. Displays are quickly coming to outnumber wheels on standard passenger vehicles, but the requirements for automotive display performance and quality have also never been higher.
