Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of test and measurement solutions for lighting and displays, announces that it will host a webinar to present the background, principles, and applications of light and color measurement methods that match human visual perception. The webinar, titled “Principles of Light and Color Measurement,” will be broadcast live on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, from 9 AM PDT (12 PM EDT). The broadcast includes a technical presentation by Radiant Product Manager, Shannon Roberts, followed by a live audience question and answer session.
“When designing a product—like a light source or a display—the target audience and ultimate judge of quality is the same: human vision,” says Roberts. “It follows then that manufacturers would use optical measurement systems that replicate the human visual experience as close as possible to achieve the optimal design and quality of their products. A method of optical metrology known as photometry describes light and color measurement in the context of human vision. Technology for photometric measurement uses various methods to capture and weigh wavelengths of light the way the cones in our eyes do. Based on these methods, we can capture values of light in a mathematical context in order to set design parameters, and targets for quality. Photometric technology allows us to determine what a human would say is a good or bad quality product, and more precisely measure a range of acceptable tolerances.”
At Radiant’s upcoming webinar, Roberts will explain how human vision has guided the development of principles of mathematical photometry. She will present the properties of light, how they stimulate the human eye, and automated technology used in design and quality control of lighted devices. She will also provide an example of how to quantify color values based on standard CIE tristimulus curves, which can be used in photometric applications. Roberts has a thorough knowledge of light and color measurement using imaging colorimeters, and her understanding of light theory has guided customers in defining technical parameters for display and illuminated component inspection in industries from consumer electronics to automotive.
