Predicting the appearance of all types of objects, including screens, necessarily implies physical simulation.
Physico-realistic rendering of displays is especially useful for validation of the human machine interfaces (HMI) embedded in a car. Indeed the great panel of using conditions in this case can lead to very severe degradation of the image quality compare to less demanding applications.
Simulation is based on precise measurements of the emissive and reflective properties of the display. Reflective properties are measured versus wavelength and angles using a multispectral Fourier optics viewing angle instrument.
Our EZConstrast MS is the equipment use for all this measurement. The aspect of any RGB images is predicted and the reflective properties are taken into account in addition software allows to simulate any kind of display for an observer anywhere in front of it, taking into accounts most of the display imperfections.
