Radiant Vision Systems provides visual test and measurement systems that characterize and inspect light and color for quality in display design and automated production. Their inspecting processes and tools are used in LCDs, LEDs, microLEDs, and OLED for flat panel displays, head-up displays, AR/VR, and near to eye displays (NEDs).
Are you facing a tough visual inspection challenge with your devices? Looking for a better way to prevent escapes, latent failures, and product returns?
There’s an old saying: “the devil is in the details.” When it comes to assembly verification in complex electromechanical devices such as smart phones, laptops, and keyboards, that saying couldn’t be more true. Even a tiny defect such as a loose connector or slightly misrouted cable can cause problems. A defective unit may not be caught until final assembly or functional test at the end of the production process, resulting in rework and wasted time or materials.
Photometric imaging solutions bridge the gap between machine vision systems and true human vision, offering consistent, quantifiable data that matches the visual acuity of human inspectors.
INSPECT R1 is a flexible software platform that enables the creation of a wide range of cosmetic surface inspection processes and custom solutions to detect subtle and low-contrast defects and areas of non-uniformity that can elude traditional machine vision systems. This Spec Sheet features:

In this article, learn how photometric and colorimetric technology matches the visual sensitivity of human vision. We discuss the advantages and applications of CCD imaging for light and color measurement, as well as component and surface inspection, that most accurately reflects the human visual experience.
Today, customers expect flawless electronic devices right out of the box. Scratched, dented, and otherwise imperfect products can result in damage to your brand reputation and future business. How can you ensure consistent visual quality, i.e., the cosmetic appearance, of delivered products?
Consumers of electronics expect a flawless device right out of the box. Scratches, dents, smudges or other imperfections can damage your brand's reputation or result in product returns. Manufacturers typically rely on human inspectors for visual quality control, but humans can be subject to fatigue and inconsistency. Radiant's surface inspection solution—part of our Advanced Vision suite—combines the speed and repeatability of automation with the acuity of true human vision.
Many of us (about 50% of smart phone owners1) have had the experience of dropping our phones. We know that sickening sound as it hits the floor—or worse, pavement—and the scratches, cracks, and dings that result. And some of us (roughly 20-23%1) even continue using a phone with a cracked screen for up to six months.Evolution of Glass
Machine vision is a vital tool for optimizing and monitoring industrial processes. Automated imaging systems enable manufacturers to inspect products at high speed, capturing and storing information on the production process. Used in a wide range of applications—from barcode reading to product inspection to test and measurement—machine vision systems are a critical part of detecting defects and errors in manufacturing environments.

Human visual perception is the ultimate standard of quality for any lighting or display product that’s intended to be viewed by humans. No machine vision or other sensing system has been able to fully replicate the level of discernment and accuracy of the human eye, but we can get very close using CCD-based imaging technology.
Engineered with the acuity to measure subtle variations in light and color, Radiant’s advanced vision systems are uniquely capable of detecting small, subtle flaws in assemblies and surfaces that are easily missed by traditional machine vision systems. In this video, you will see:

Manufacturers of high end consumer electronics often rely on manual quality inspection to catch flaws before bad products leave the factory. However, many have not yet found a repeatable and reliable solution for detecting the subtle, low-contrast, and randomly occurring defects that can make the difference between a perfect product and a customer return.
Machine vision has been a boon to manufacturers, enabling visual inspection at production-line speeds with consistency, repeatability, and objective data. Yet there are still some visual inspection tasks that are beyond the capability of typical machine vision systems. Complex assemblies, subtle surface defects, areas of low-contrast, and glass or transparent materials require a higher level of visual acuity, which has often been provided by human inspectors.
Absolute product quality has become a prerequisite to compete in a number of industries. Standard machine vision inspection systems are inadequate for detecting the subtle issues in high-end products that now dictate a manufacturer’s brand reputation. More sophisticated inspection technology is needed to replicate the acuity of the human user to see defects and anomalies. Advanced imaging solutions—such as scientific-grade CCD-based systems—offer the ability to inspect low-contrast regions in
Radiant technologies are thoughtfully engineered to achieve the fastest, simplest, and most accurate measurements of light, color, and surfaces. Imaging colorimeters and photometers leverage scientific-grade CCDs, high resolution, low noise, and factory calibration to ensure consistency of data across R&D to production. Utilizing photopic filters, Radiant cameras acquire absolute luminance and color information to qualify devices against human visual perception.
