AR/VR devices are used in various fields of applications. These include assisting in machine operations in production, in the medical field, transport industry or the entertainment branch. Display or calibration errors distract from the wearer’s sense of immersion in the virtual world. In quality assurance they must be reliably recognized and evaluated. This opens up a new and exciting field for display measurement subject to constantly changing demands on the technology.

Display technology is an essential component of today’s digital-driven world, providing a crucial link between users and their devices and products like smartphones and touchscreen display panels in automotive. Displays must undergo rigorous evaluation and inspection, from R&D to quality control, to ensure they are consistent with the design goals and meet the required standards for performance and reliability. Accurate and efficient evaluation and inspection can be achieved with display metrology, a scientific approach that provides objective display performance indicators through measurement data. This involves using metrology instruments or system to measure the different aspects of display performance, such as brightness, color, gamut, contrast, uniformity, defects, viewing angle, etc. Learn more by visiting our Display Industry page to view our full profile of Display products.

Under-Screen Applications
ø2.1 mm Small Spot Probe

Today, many smartphones use front-facing cameras as part of the full-screen display, positioning the camera behind the screen.
This configuration requires two different pixel configurations to exist on the same display, making display gamma correction more complicated. This new positioning can cause a discrepancy in the brightness and color between the area in which the camera sits behind the screen and the other display area in question. Konica Minolta Sensing addresses this challenge with its Display Color Analyzer CA-410 Small Spot Probe.


AR/VR Display Testing

Extensive, fast and highly precise optical tests in production are a prerequisite for perfect user experience with AR/VR headsets. To meet this challenge, Instrument Systems offers the specially developed LumiTop AR/VR 2D imaging colorimeter. The LumiTop’s AR/VR lens simulates the human eye as realistically as possible and measures color and luminance just as the eye perceives them. The unique periscope design permits synchronized 2-eye measurements. And the proven LumiTop principle guarantees fast, traceable and highly accurate measurements.
