About This Webinar
From automotive panels and avionics to LED-illuminated controls and accents — backlit components must be inspected to ensure the accuracy and visual quality of icons, shapes, and text. These elements are difficult to inspect not only because of their variety but also because quality is determined by a combination of factors. Achieving accurate brightness, color, and uniformity of illuminated areas requires measurement of photometric properties. Inspecting for defects, size, shape, and position requires an understanding of specific dimensions. Photometric systems such as colorimeters, photometers, and spectrometers excel at light and color measurement. However, these systems have historically lacked common machine vision registration functions that enable measurement and defect detection within uniquely shaped regions. For this reason, evaluating backlit components has required either multiple pieces of equipment or a complex, customized vision solution to ensure all inspection requirements are met.

Radiant Vision Systems introduces the first automated visual inspection solution that combines photometric measurement with machine vision image analysis and registration. VIP™ (Vision Inspection Pack) Software provides complete backlit component inspection in a single vision system and offers advantages over current systems — for fast, hassle-free evaluation of components in R&D and during production.
