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.

At the moment, LCD screens still dominate the display market at approximately 90%.  But OLED is gaining rapidly, especially in the smartphone market where more than half of all displays produced are now OLED. We discuss this market trend, and take a look at some of the applications where the performance and efficiency of OLED are leading to it's rapid adoption.

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.

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.
