Making the Case with Accuracy and Reliability for Ultra HD Testing
Interface is a leader in ultra-accurate and high-reliability force measurement solutions and services for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)
We recently published a case study on a unique and complex project for a customer specializing in designing and building automated systems to observe and test for color and light performance in Ultra HD displays. It was a great opportunity for Interface to showcase our innovative design expertise. Working with OEMs in partnership allow our team members to collaborate closely to on the project’s specific and delicate nature.

Qualifying Ultra HD Resolution
With the rising popularity of Ultra HD and 4K format video monitors, testing for video output quality is critical. These screens have a resolution of 3840×2160. This is four times the number of pixels in full-high-definition (HD) and eight times as many as standard definition. To put it in perspective, Ultra HD (UHD) is only a slightly lower resolution than the picture displayed on theater movie screens.
Evaluating the Application Requirements
Interface’s customer needed a solution to monitor and control forces during testing. With this technology, inspecting the color and light performance of the screen is much more critical than ever before due to the intensity of perception. Because the hype of this technology is centered around its stellar resolution, testing for output quality is one of the most important steps in the manufacturing process. The solution had to easily allow for the mounting of sensors into the large glass array handling tool.
The Clear Results
Interface’s solution provided direct force and weight feedback around the periphery on the monitor array panel to allow for precise handling control without fracturing the glass. Because of Interface, the customer was able to test the video output quality long before the completion of the end product.
For more than 51 years, Interface has worked with manufacturers to provide industrial automation solutions for test and measurement that improve products, reduce risks and ultimately foster continuous innovation to do more, better and faster.
