The global imaging photometers market is projected to be USD 38.06 Million in 2020 to reach USD 54.73 Million by 2030 at a CAGR of 3.7%.
Imaging photometer is an instrument used for measuring luminous intensity of the light source, by comparing it with the standard source. In photometry, visual photometer observer sees a field illuminated alternately from two sources which are compared. Once flicker sensation disappears, the intensity of the test source is concluded by comparing it with the standard source. In other terms, imaging photometer refers to an instrument used for the measurement of light intensity and understanding the optical properties of surface and solutions. Imaging photometers interpret brightness at spatial and angular distribution just the way humans do and are adaptable to applications requiring human visual interpretation of light at variable distances and angles. Imaging photometers are fast, reliable and accurate, particularly for large production lines. In addition, imaging photometry technique provides objective information that can be evaluated, compared and shared.
Increased investments in R&D for advanced visualization systems by government and private authorities are providing significant growth to the imaging photometers market. In addition to this, growing demand for innovative, advanced and high-performance products is the most dominant factor to drive imaging photometer market.

Patent Number: US7394540B2
Methods and apparatuses for applying different color calibrations at different locations in an imaging photometer measurement
Systems and methods for applying different color calibrations at different locations in an imaging photometer measurement are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a method for measuring a light source having a first area with a first spectral distribution and a second area having a second spectral power distribution can include selecting one or more data points in the first area for measurement. The method then includes applying a calibration to the selected data points in the first area such that a desired colorimetric result is displayed for each data point in a single colorimetric measurement of the first area. In several embodiments, the method can further include selecting one or more data points in the second area, and applying a different calibration to the selected portions of the second area such that a desired colorimetric result is also displayed for each data point in the second area.

High accuracy imaging colorimeter by special designed pattern closed-loop calibration assisted by spectrograph
This specification describes various embodiments that relate to methods for providing a wideband colorimeter that can include more accurate outputs. In one embodiment, a narrowband instrument, such as a spectrometer or spectrograph, can be used for calibration of a wideband colorimeter, so that more accurate outputs can be provided. In one embodiment, an optical test equipment, which consists of both a wideband colorimeter and a narrowband spectrograph, can be used for providing a more accurately calibrated wideband colorimeter. As an example, a spectra-camera, which is a hybrid system consisting of both a wideband colorimeter and a narrowband spectrograph, can be used for simultaneous testing by both the wideband colorimeter and the narrowband spectrograph. By doing simultaneous testing, accurate calibration of the wideband colorimeter can be achieved. This specification further describes a mathematical model to characterize a wideband three channel colorimeter with a narrowband multiple channel spectrometer.

Patent Number: US6982744B2
Multi-point calibration method for imaging light and color measurement device
A multi-point calibration method is provided for an imaging light and color measurement device. A light emitting surface with a plurality of light emitting areas is provided. The luminance or color of each light emitting area of the light emitting surface at a specific angle is measured using a spot measurement instrument. By aligning the spot measurement instrument with one of the light emitting areas at a time, the luminance or color of the light emitting areas of the light emitting surface is measured. A measurement of the light emitting surface is made with the imaging light and color measurement device. A matrix of correction factors is calculated to correct the areas as measured by the imaging light and color measurement device to be equivalent to those measured by the spot photometer. While a display device is measured by the imaging light and color measurement device, the measured luminance or color values thereof are corrected by the screen gain correction matrix.

Below are the key development related to Imaging Photometer Market in 2020 and 2021.
May 2021 : Imaging Metrology Solutions offer 61 Megapixels Resolution. Radiant Vision Systems, a provider of image-based light and color measurement solutions, has announced three new high-resolution models in its line of ProMetric Imaging Colorimeters and Photometers. New ProMetric systems extend the resolution range of Radiant’s imaging solutions up to 61 megapixels (61MP), adding the ProMetric Y45 and Y61 Imaging Photometers for high-resolution photopic and radiometric imaging, and the ProMetric I61 Imaging Colorimeter for high-resolution colorimetric imaging.ProMetric imaging metrology solutions are used to measure properties of light that influence the visual quality of devices such as LEDs, displays, augmented and virtual reality (AR, VR) projections, and head-up displays (HUD). The benefits of imaging enable ProMetric systems to capture millions of data points simultaneously across a single field of view for extremely rapid measurement cycles. Imaging also enables spatial comparison of data points across the field of view, necessary for evaluating brightness or color uniformity, gradient, contrast, pixel-level variation, random defects, and dimensional accuracy of light source distributions and displays.
