ProMetric® I Imaging Colorimeters
The world's fastest and most accurate high-resolution imaging colorimeters.
ProMetric® I imaging colorimeters are designed to address the demands for high-volume manufacturing of displays, backlit components, light sources, and device components. Applying tristimulus color filter technology based on standard CIE color-matching functions, ProMetric I provides highly accurate color and luminance measurements for lab testing and production-level inspection.
ProMetric I is designed around scientific-grade image sensors in a range of high-resolution options. These sensors enable pixel-level measurements of displays (LCD, OLED), inter- and intra-character luminance measurements on backlit keyboards and panels, and accurate measurements of LED luminance and color in luminaires or large LED arrays.
ProMetric I Family
The ProMetric® I family of imaging colorimeters offers the industry's leading imaging solution for calibrated luminance and chromaticity measurement. The system's internal tristimulus color filter provides an innate spectral response that aligns with standard CIE color-matching functions, while high-resolution imaging captures and analyzes millions of values at once across large fields of view and depths of field.
ProMetric I features Smart Technology™ features that simplify operation and provide more accurate measurement results. For example, the electronically controlled focus and aperture setting provides calibrated measurements over a wide range of working distances and field of view. This greatly simplifies measurement set up and allows fully-automated remote configuration of your production test systems

Radiant's ProMetric I Series of imaging colorimeters meets the requirements of high-speed production operations, combining the benefits of automation with the accuracy of human visual perception to address a range of applications:
- Color and luminance testing of displays
- Light measurement and characterization of LED products
- Appearance uniformity testing of illuminated instrument clusters and keypads
Used for precise measurement of qualities of light and color across a display, the ProMetric I Imaging Colorimeter captures quantifiable values of spatial luminance, contrast, uniformity, and chromaticity (in CIE x, y and u’, v’). The system can also detect defects like mura, light leakage, and dead pixels or lines in any area of the display.
ProMetric I captures comprehensive luminance and chromaticity values of each display, with analyses applied in a matter of seconds. Equipped for USB and Ethernet communications, the ProMetric I provides highly reliable operation for production operations from camera to camera and line to line, making it the solution of choice for global display panel production manufacturing operations.
Light, color, and dimensional accuracy are key for visual performance, regulatory compliance, and consumer satisfaction of all illuminated elements inside and outside the vehicle, from instrument panels and dome lights to headlamps. Paired with automated analysis software from Radiant’s TrueTest platform, the ProMetric I offers the complete measurement solution for systems from center stacks to instrument panels, from headlamps to head-up displays.
Electronically controlled lenses come standard with each ProMetric I system, allowing manufacturers to use software to easily set focus and aperture settings on the fly as image distance changes, or when required for regulatory testing (such as DFF Black Mura Gradient measurement).
From individual LEDs to large luminaires, Radiant’s light measurement expertise spans decades with applications in data acquisition for light source modeling to correction of non-uniformity for large LED panels. The ProMetric I is applied for both goniometric and non-goniometric measurement of light sources, completely characterizing the three-dimensional output of a source (generating ray sets, IES, or LDT/EULUMDAT files) or evaluating illuminance, luminous intensity, and chromaticity as well as geometric aspects like distribution cut-off gradient and shape.
