Prism Award Finalists in Vision Technology; NED-LMD Waveguide Tester for Complete Augmented/Mixed Reality Display Metrology

Gamma Scientific announced today that its innovative new offering, NED-LMD Waveguide Tester, was chosen to be a 2021 SPIE Prism Awards Finalist in the category of Vision Technology. The NED-LMD Waveguide Tester is the world’s first near-eye display measurement system that mimics human visual perception to accurately and completely characterize next-generation optical waveguide-based Augmented/Mixed Reality headsets.

The award-winning product line features a unique robotic eye that helps XR device manufacturers quantify true user experience in AR/VR/MR and Heads-Up Displays, through meaningful, high resolution, zero distortion, and wide field of view 3D spatial and spectral measurements mapping the entire display field of view. The product line features a fully automated software test suite and complies with the latest international NED metrology standards being developed by the IEC and SID.

Sonika Obheroi, Product Manager of the NED-LMD systems at Gamma Scientific states, “This is a very exciting moment for us as we earnestly follow our vision to facilitate high-quality XR tech to the consumer market by leveraging our expertise and providing device makers with reliable, complete metrology tools for R&D design validation and production quality assurance. With our wide range of NED-LMD solutions, we will have every RealityVerified®!”
