These days we’re even more reliant on our screens than Snow White’s queen was on her magic mirror. Considering their importance, the need for quality and clarity of displays—from televisions and smart phones to automobile dashboards to VR headsets—is no fairy tale. Mura is a Japanese word that means unevenness, irregularity, or blemish. In the display industry, this word has been adopted as the name for irregularities and “clouding” effects seen on LCD—and more recently OLED—screens. Learn more about mura types, causes, and what you can do about it.

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.

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.
