DVC150 Visual Characterisation of Displays

  • Digital display characterisation system
  • Colorimetric calibration measurement set-up

Based on a compact double monochromator with photomultiplier detection and integrated picoammeter, the DVC150 offers an impressive six decades of dynamic range. Supplied with a direct view telescope with fibre bundle, the DVC150 is easy and convenient to use.

Core benefits


  • Double monochromator for superlative stray light performance
  • Photomultiplier detector (S20 photocathode)
  • Integrated picoammeter and high voltage supply
  • Direct or fibre coupled direct-view telescope
  • Fully automated operation via BenWin+ Windows control software
