Solutions for Test and Calibration of Display Projectors

Measurement instruments for luminance, illuminance and colour to ensure quality of light projection display

Ensure Quality of Projection Display

Measurement for projection display applications in cinema, training simulators, art installation and home theatre

Projection display technology is designed to wow the observer with scale and impact. Whether delivering a visual cinematic experience that lives up to the vision of the director or delivering an immersive experience such as commercial flight simulation, the observer perception of quality requires calibration and control of brightness, contrast, colour and uniformity of the image that is projected onto the screen.

Konica Minolta supply accurate and traceable light measurement instrumentation to manufacturers, installers and maintenance professionals to characterise:
  • Uniformity of brightness ANSI brightness across the display,
  • Contrast between the dark and light
  • Calibration of colour

Projection systems are tested not only through development and production but also throughout their life through ongoing calibrations.
  • Test and characterisation of internal LCD or DLP element
  • Quality Control and Calibration of projected image in test and in-situ
Konica Minolta Sensing supply a range of systems to meet these measurement requirements,
  • from simple illuminance meters for measurement and calibration of illuminance at the screen,
  • luminance meters for luminance and colour,
  • spectroradiometers for point inspection of luminance and spectral power distribution data of the internal LCD or DLP unit,
  • or an imaging colorimiter for uniformity analysis of the overall projected image. 

The renowned optical technology of Konica Minolta measurement instruments is supported by a global network of experienced sales and support in order to maintain ongoing traceability and accuracy of your measurement solution over its lifetime.


  • Develop and validate quality performance and optimum customer experience with test and calibration systems for development, manufacture and ongoing calibration of projection technology.
  • Traceable measurement solutions for all pricepoints from spot illuminance to imaging colorimeter.
  • Ensure quality in-situ using versatile and portable technology
  • Save time and simplify processes through integration to systems through software development kit



T-10A Illuminance Meter

Traceable spot iIluminance meter that can be configured into a multi point measurement matrix to characterise brightness uniformity over a large area.

LS-150 Luminance Meter

Traceable spot luminance meter that can be used to measure luminance values of large in situ screens to quickly and conveniently test the uniformity of brightness or contrast patterns.

CL-200A Chroma Meter

Traceable illuminance and chromaticity meter that can be configured either for a single point or multi point measurement of brightness and colour uniformity across a projection screen.

CS-3000 Spectroradiometer

Spectroradiometer that can be used to make traceable and accurate measurement both of LCD and DLP components during development and assembly or to provide the highest quality in-situ testing for calibration of projected image. Successor to the CS-2000 and CS-2000A.

Prometric I-Series

Imaging Colorimiter that can provide integrated and automated measurements of an entire screen in-situ allowing control and evaluation of uniformity of Colour and Brightness.



Test and measurement of LCD and DLP

To ensure that their devices leave production delivering peak performance, our customer is using a CS-2000A spectroradiometer to measure spot luminance and colour at the component level directly on the DLP. In this instance the device is interfaced with local systems and software for calibration and adjustment. The CS-2000 can also be connected to Excel or its own software when used in a development environment.

The CS-2000 and CS-2000A have now been succeeded by the CS-3000 Spectroradiometer. The CS-3000 delivers improved accuracy and reduced measurement times, capable of measuring in as little as a quarter of the time of its predecessor for some lengthy low light tasks. The new instrument is also designed for improved system integration and automation.

Spectroradiometer CS-2000A for analyzing ultra-low luminance: 1,000,000:1 contrast measurement

Basic testing of projection technology in-situ

The T-10A can be used in a combination of upto 30 measurement heads to measure illuminance over a large area, it can also be used with a single receptor for in-situ maintenanace and installation applications where the operator repositions between measurements. This can provide before and after validation of repairs or service.

The CL-200A can be used in the same manner, providing additional value by measuring both colour and illuminance. This allows the operator to perform test and calibration of colour for in-situ projection technology.
