Near Eye Display Measurement System
The Gamma Scientific Near Eye Display (GS‐1290 NED) measurement system is designed to accurately capture spectral measurements of Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality and Helmet mounted displays as viewed by the human eye.
It is unmatched by any other instrument available in measuring the essential NED performance requirements by combining:
- Telescope optics compact enough to fit inside a helmet and designed to point in different directions to emulate the movement of the human eye
- Gamma Scientific’s GS-1290 detector-based grating spectroradiometer with high sensitivity design using single or double stage TE cooled multi-element back-thinned CCD
The NED Measurement System leverages decades of experience developing Display and HUD test systems for military aircraft programs including the F-16, F-18, B-1B, F-117, C-17 and F-35.
- Luminance and color uniformity
- Symbology luminance and color
- Spectral transmittance
- Left/right eye parallax
- Image contrast with different background Spatial Power Distributions (SPD)
- Transmittance modulation contrast (IDMS 7.2) for Augmented Reality
- Virtual image modulation contrast (IDMS 7.2) for Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality
- Display response time/Flicker
Near Eye Display Measurement System Requirements
The Entrance Pupil of the measurement telescope must be positioned in the rotational area of the human eye (Design Eye Box). The pupil diameter is 5mm for Near Eye Display applications. Relative to most display testers with Entrance Pupils of 20-40mm, 5mm reduces light by 16-64 times highlighting the critical requirement for the spectrometer to accurately measure extremely low light levels, an industry-proven strength of Gamma Scientific’s GS-1290 spectroradiometer.
The NED measurement system must be able to point in different directions to different areas in the Virtual Image Field of View. The axis of rotation for the measurement optics must be within the Design Eye Box to emulate the perspective of the human eye.
