Radiant Announces New AR/VR Lens for Near-to-Eye

1/30/2018 10:16 AM 

Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of visual test and inspection systems for lighting and display devices, has announced the release of a new AR/VR lens for Radiant Vision Systems’ ProMetric imaging photometers and colorimeters. The AR/VR lens features a unique optical design specially engineered for measuring the visual quality of near-to-eye displays inside-virtual (VR), mixed-reality (MR), and augmented-reality (AR) headsets. The lens design simulates the size, position, and field of view of the human eye, featuring an aperture at the front of the lens to position the imaging system’s entrance pupil within near-to-eye headsets at the same location as the human eye.

By mounting the AR/VR lens directly to a ProMetric imaging photometer or colorimeter, Radiant Vision Systems is offering what it claims is the first solution for in-headset near-eye microdisplay measurement, including display technologies based on LED, LCD, OLED, and projection. The AR/VR lens can easily be removed and replaced with standard lenses for additional display measurement applications, such as testing displays outside of headset equipment or on the production line.
