CA-410 Display Color Analyzer

Enhanced-accuracy & repeatability with high-speed that is capable of measuring a wider range of the latest displays

Konica Minolta’s Display Color Analyzer Series has become the standard within the display industry. In addition, the latest display technologies such as HDR, OLED, micro-displays, etc. have created a need for a new level in measurement performance. The latest generation of the Display Color Analyzer, CA-410 with a diversified collection of its measurement probes, is designed to measure and test today’s ever-evolving displays.

Equipped with new sensors and circuitry, the CA-410 offers users the ability to accurately measure and adjust the chromaticity and gamma characteristics of High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays across the wide range of super-low to high luminance. With improved XYZ filters that closely match the color-matching functions of CIE 1931, and a new calibration light source, which simulate wide-gamut OLED, users, can more accurately measure and adjust the white balance and chromaticity of wide color gamut displays.

Features

Key Features for Measuring the Latest Displays
Accuracy guaranteed from low to high luminance

Accuracy-guaranteed-from-low-to-high-luminance
Allows for instantaneous measurements to be conducted immediately after the processor is started. No down time.

High-performance sensors and circuitry design combine to realize a wide accuracy-guaranteed luminance range that stretched from super-low to high emissions. This enables the CA-410 to meet the requirements for accurate measurement and tuning of chromaticity and gamma characteristics of OLED and HDR displays which require super-low luminance measurements. Pair the CA-410 with a lineup of high-luminance probes for measuring backlit modules equipped with new technologies like Mini-LEDs.

High accuracy comparable to spectroradiometers in chromaticity measurements
High-accuracy-comparable-to-spectroradiometers-in-chromaticity-measurements
The CA-410 features highly accurate XYZ filters that push its spectral sensitivity close to the CIE 1931 color-matching functions. Moreover, because the calibration light source replicates the emission spectrum of LED displays, tristimulus chromaticity measurements can yield a high level of accuracy comparable to a spectroradiometer. This allows users to more accurately measure and tune the chromaticity and white balance of displays that have a wide color gamut.

High-speed measurements for enhanced productivity
High-speed-measurements-for-enhanced-productivity
Owing to high sensor sensitivity and high-speed computing, measurements with the CA-410 are fast in a way that shortens the time needed to conduct multiple measurements for luminance and chromaticity evaluation and adjustment such as for gamma testing.

For even faster speed performance, the CA-410 offers LTD. AUTO mode that increases measurement speed while keeping the same or better accuracy than the predecessor CA-310. The addition of a Single-Frame mode, allows users to set the shortest integration time for synchronized measurements. The design improves productivity in processes where measurement speed is critical, such as inline color adjustments of OLEDs.

Designed for incorporation into automatic systems
designed-for-incorporation-and-use-in-automatic-systems
The CA-410 can be incorporated into and use in automatic systems. This includes a motorized zero-calibration shutter, synchronization detection function, and probe-PC direct connection, which allows full functionality with USB bus power. The CA-410 contains both RS-232C and USB ports, and when using USB, the virtual COM port allows quick and easy connections to probes without the need to install drivers. For convenience when incorporating the CA-410 into automatic systems developed for predecessor models CA-210/310, the basic communication commands of CA-410 the same. Also, CA-SDK2* includes as standard a COM registration tool which makes it possible to easily use the CA-410 with programs created for CA-210/310 using the previous CA-SDK. In addition, various cables for incorporation into systems are available as optional accessories.

Flicker measurement with a wide frequency range that covers any type of display

All the CA-410 probes measure flicker in the methods of JEITA (dB), VESA (dB), and FMA (Flicker Modulation Amplitude; AC/DC in %).

The CA-410 Normal Probes (CA-P427 and CA-P410) offer two different flicker measurement modes, CA-310 Mode and XYZ Mode, which allows users to measure flicker properly, depending on a type of displays. The CA-310 Mode performs flicker measurement, using a dedicated flicker sensor that includes a low-pass filter physically, which cuts off display frequency over 65Hz in order to eliminate high-frequency noise before sampling that could cause aliasing errors when measuring flicker on the LED-backlit displays. This mode allows existing CA-310 Flicker Probe users to measure flicker values that are entirely compatible with CA-310 flicker values. On the other hand, the XYZ Mode measures flicker across the frequency range of up to 200Hz with a manual setting of electrical low-pass filter use.
In addition, CA-S40 PC Software includes a measurement feature for waveform on display frequency. The waveform measurement feature helps, for example, researchers who strive to reduce the flicker phenomenon that human eyes can feel under low electricity consumption conditions by visualizing the emission fluctuation of the displays.
