Displays are breaking out of their flat rectangular box! Last week at the 2019 SID Display Week Exhibition we saw a television screen that rolls down into a box, many foldable phones, cylindrical screens, a sculptural OLED “rose”—even a flexible OLED Chinese opera mask. All of these examples were designed to highlight the flexible application of emerging emissive displays.

Emissive displays like OLED and microLED are on the rise and we expect to see lots of them at SID Display Week 2019. Testing these displays, which have a higher degree of variability than traditional LCD screens, requires new, higher resolution imaging systems. Radiant launches it's newest ProMetric Y43 Imaging Photometer, with a 43MP CCD sensor balanced with other specifications to yeild the most precise, high-quality images.

Machine vision has been a boon to manufacturers, offering quality inspection at production line speeds. However, some visual inspection tasks are beyond the capability of traditional machine vision, such as cosmetic surface inspection. Only human inspectors have been able to provide the visual acuity to spot subtle defects and make sure that products look perfect to the end consumer. Now, Radiant's Advanced Vision approach uses photometry-based imaging to match the precision of human inspectors, but with the benefits of automation for speed, consistency, and data capture.

Near-infrared light—the range of electromagnetic wavelengths between roughly 700 nanometers (nm) and 1500 nm—is invisible to the human eye, making it ideal for an increasing number of 3D sensing applications such as facial recognition, iris scanning, gesture recognition, terrain mapping, automobile LiDAR, and night-vision security cameras. Learn more about NIR facial recognition quality and performance considerations, and how Radiant's new NIR measurement solution can help you ensure NIR light sources are perfoming to spec.
