UL 2802 Standard for Performance Testing of Camera Image Quality

We are pioneering the development of new Standards for video products, such as UL 2802, the 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
  • Gray level
  • Dynamic range
  • Maximum frame rate
  • Relative illumination
  • Sensitivity
  • Distortion
  • Veiling glare
  • Bad pixel count


With our technical expertise and testing capabilities, we can develop custom solutions to assist you during your design and development processes to help improve the quality of your video cameras.

Why UL
