Technology that Replicates Human Vision for Accurate Evaluation of AR/VR Display Quality: Webinar

Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of test and measurement solutions for lighting and displays, announces that it will host a webinar to introduce display measurement technology that evaluates augmented and virtual reality displays under the same conditions as they are viewed by human users. The webinar, titled “Replicating Human Vision for Accurate Testing of AR/VR Displays,” will be broadcast live on Thursday, February 22, 2018, from 9-9:30 AM PST (12-12:30 PM EST). The broadcast includes a technical presentation by Radiant Applications Engineering Manager, Eric Eisenberg, followed by a live audience question and answer session.

Near-eye displays–like those used in augmented (AR), virtual (VR), and mixed (MR) reality devices—project visual objects and information in close proximity to the human eye, often encompassing the user’s entire angular field of view. This proximity not only magnifies display projections, but also enhances defects like non-uniformity, line and pixel defects, poor image clarity, and inaccurate image positioning. To accurately test the quality of displays that are viewed near to the eye, the measurement solution must take into account the position, limitations, and characteristics of the human eye, especially within the viewing environment of an AR/VR headset.

Radiant Vision Systems develops photometric imaging solutions that incorporate specially-designed optics and software to test high-resolution microdisplays viewed near to eye, such as those integrated into AR/VR devices. Radiant’s AR/VR solutions capture data to accurately characterize display quality as perceived by the user, such as replicating the size, position, and field of view (FOV) of the human eye. Radiant’s new AR/VR lens enables visualization of the complete display FOV within headsets, while Radiant TrueTest™ Software offers tests for modulation transfer function (MTF), image distortion, characterizing device FOV, and reporting spatial positions in degrees, among other capabilities.

At the upcoming webinar, Radiant Applications Engineering Manager, Eric Eisenberg, will present technologies for near-eye AR/VR display testing that replicate human vision for accurate evaluation of the user experience. With extensive hands-on experience incorporating imaging technology in factories worldwide, Eric has a deep understanding of the technical considerations required for successful implementation of display test systems.
