Date Announced: 16 Jun 2020
Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of automated visual inspection solutions for light and display measurement, announced today that its ProMetric® Y43 (43-megapixel) Imaging Photometer was recognized among the best in machine vision by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2020 Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies. The ProMetric Y43 Imaging Photometer received a Bronze award in the “Cameras – Specialty (High-speed, scientific)” category, announced during an online webcast presentation today, June 16, by editors at Vision Systems Design.
“The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate Radiant Vision Systems for its score in the 2020 Innovators Awards program,” said John Lewis, Editor in Chief. “Each year this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision. The Radiant team should be very proud.”
Emerging display technologies (such as OLED, quantum dot, miniLED, and microLED) rely on increasingly small light-emitting elements for greater visual detail and control of display brightness, color, and contrast. As devices from televisions to smartphones to virtual reality displays increase dramatically in resolution and pixel density, measurement systems designed to provide display qualification must offer more sensor pixels to measure these displays accurately. Engineered to replicate the human eye’s sensitivity to light, imaging photometers are specialty visual inspection systems that provide highly accurate light source metrology for design and production of light sources, illuminated components, and display devices.
Released in May 2019, the ProMetric Y43 Imaging Photometer offers the highest-resolution scientific-grade CCD imaging sensor available in imaging photometers at 43 megapixels (8040 x 5360). The sensor is interline cooled to limit image noise for highly accurate, repeatable imaging. The high resolution of the ProMetric Y43 allows the camera to measure precise pixel and subpixel luminance output and calculate variations across display bright states, applying several CCD pixels per display pixel to enable measurement and pixel uniformity correction for today’s increasingly pixel-dense displays. The ProMetric Y43 system identifies and quantifies display qualities not discernable to human visual inspection or competitive measurement systems. The system completes measurements containing over 43 million data points in less than 1.5 seconds, providing the fastest photometric imaging solution for production-level applications such as in-line quality control and correction.
