Advanced imaging solutions—such as scientific-grade CCD-based systems—offer the ability to inspect low-contrast regions in extreme detail for detection and classification of the subtlest variabilities noticeable to the human eye. Although there is an investment to apply advanced systems like these, the ROI of photometry-based systems is justifiable in any operation where the risk of escaped defects and production inefficiency is a great-enough (and costly-enough) concern. Read this blog for 8 inspection challenges and scenarios that justify investment in an advanced photometry-based vision system...

The display industry's biggest event of the year is SID Display Week, May 22-24 at the LA Convention Center. Come by booth #729 to see live demonstrations of Radiant's photometry-based imaging systems that simulate human visusl perception to ensure the absolute quality of display devices from the inside out. Our systems provide light and color uniformity analysis, pixel-level defect detection, correction processes like OLED demura (Radiant’s uniformity correction method uniquely engineered for emissive OLED pixels). We provide solutions for HUD and sparkle measurement, testing AR/VR displays, LCDs, and MicroLEDs, along with advanced vision systems for precision assembly verification and surface inspection.

When we think of virtual reality, the first thing that comes to mind is typically entertainment or gaming. But the uses of this technology go far beyond recreation. In fact, AR and VR devices are poised to revolutionize medicine with new clinical applications, tools, and treatments.

As display screens proliferate in our daily lives—from mobile phones and tablets, to automobile GPS and smart home devices—the way we interact with them is increasingly dynamic; we look at them from many angles and on the go. To ensure that flat panel displays are clear and usable, manufacturers need to test performance from multiple viewpoints. Radiant's FPD Conoscope Lens captures a full cone of view angle data in a single measurement to ±70 degrees.

Photometry-based imaging systems—like Radiant’s INSPECT.assembly solution—now offer superior inspection capabilities for high-precision assembly verification: visual detection capabilities that match or exceed the acuity of human inspectors, with the speed, repeatability, and quantifiable data of automated machine vision systems.

Augmented and virtual reality headsets present images to the user on near-eye-displays (NEDs): display screens that are in close proximity to the eye. This proximity enhances the immersive experience for the user, but can also magnify any slight imperfections on the screen. Ensuring the quality of NEDs within AR/VR headsets requires a test solution that can "see" everything the wearer sees. Radiant has introduced a specially designed AR/VR lens that replicates the perspective and placement of the human eye to provide the most effective qualty testing for AR/VR devices...

Today kicks off the 3rd annual Automotive Visual & Display Technologies (AVDT) event in Ann Arbor, Michigan (March 26-28), where leaders in automotive engineering, design, and manufacturing will discuss the next generation of car HMIs (human machine interfaces) and display integration. My colleague Matt Scholz presents a conference session this afternoon titled “New Measurement Methods to Solve Emerging Display Test Challenges.” (If you happen to be reading this blog from the show, check out Matt’s talk at 3:20 PM!) As I explore the AVDT agenda—with topics covering head-up displays to human-centric design and autonomous vehicles—it’s clear that we’re on the verge of a new automotive era...
