UL’s testing and certification services to assess the performance of video cameras provides manufacturers a way to further differentiate their products in the market and stand out from the competition. By leveraging the trust in the UL brand, manufacturers can highlight the unique features and functionality of their video products and give end users and integrators confidence when making purchase decisions amongst the myriad of choices in the market. UL is pioneering the development of new standards for video products, such as UL 2802, Standard for Performance Testing of Camera Image Quality. UL 2802 provides a superior level of reliability and repeatability with a highly objective method of measuring camera performance. Traditional methods offer low repeatability and are highly subjective. UL 2802 provides quantitative ratings based on the measurements of the following performance parameters:

  • Resolution
  • Grey level
  • Dynamic range
  • Maximum frame rate
  • Relative illumination
  • Sensitivity
  • Distortion
  • Veiling glare
  • Bad pixel count

With UL’s technical expertise and testing capabilities, we can develop custom solutions to assist video camera manufacturers during their design and development process and help improve their products.
