The presentation will take place as part of the upcoming DSCC (Display Supply Chain Consultants) AR/VR Display Forum, a two-day virtual conference dedicated to XR devices.
Radiant’s presentation will be led by optics development manager, Eric Eisenberg, who will introduce “A Flexible Solution for XR Display Testing: Replicating the Human Eye in More Headsets and Smart Glasses” beginning with a live broadcast on Tuesday, September 20, from 4.30 to 5.30pm US Pacific Time (PDT).
The conference itself takes place September 20-21 and features speakers from industry leaders who will share their insights on the latest innovations in display manufacture and commercialization.
During his presentation Eisenberg will introduce a new XR display test system from Radiant—the XRE Lens—which the company says leverages a patent-pending modular design to meet more diverse measurement needs.
The presentation will describe measurement challenges and how they are addressed by features of the lens’s optical design, including electronic focus control, a range of imaging resolution and field-of-view (FOV) options, and folded ("periscope") optical geometries to measure the visual performance of XR devices with various focus ranges, display specifications, and form factors.
“As a prerequisite, an instrument used to test the visual quality of an XR display should capture the field of view of an immersive display as seen from the user’s eye position in the headset,” said Eisenberg. “But display types, projection methods, headset hardware, and other variables of XR design continue to evolve. Increasingly, XR manufacturers are investing in custom equipment to meet specific measurement needs, creating a huge time and cost burden.
“There simply isn’t room for lengthy and expensive development cycles in an industry as competitive and rapidly changing as XR. Manufacturers need to remain nimble and be quick-to-market. What’s needed is a more flexible measurement solution that allows manufacturers to deploy XR display testing more easily and cost-effectively for unique devices.”
