View angle performance of Displays is very important as it is not always possible to view a display directly from the exact middle. Viewers should see the same picture quality regardless of their viewing angle. Displays with poor viewing angle performance can show dramatic color shifts and loss of contrast. As such it is important to characterize view angle performance of displays both in R&D and in production.
Although it may not seem like a lack of contrast is a big deal, a poor viewing angle can greatly alter different display applications. For example, military pilots must be able to clearly see the displays in their cockpits to ensure mission completion. A skewed viewing angle can cause individuals to get into an accident, potentially injuring people. Watching the game with your friends changes the experience if people stuck on the sides don’t know what’s happening. End-users are looking for optimal performance especially with improving technologies and are less likely to buy or use the devices if the different viewing angles of a display are not showing the colors and images clearly.
With display multi-view angle testing available, R&D and production can take these important multi-angle measurements simultaneously creating greater insight into display quality and performance, while creating display testing efficiencies.
