What is VCX


VCX is a non-profit organisation, it does not primarily pursue its own economic ends


A numeric indicator of the camera value of smart-phones and products. It is based on an objective assessment of equipment


Getting the experts together to improve the user experience


The association of Vision and Trust



Due to the fast-evolving technologies and the ever-increasing importance of imaging in social media, the camera is one of the most important components of today’s smart-phones. Smartphones have essentially replaced low-to-mid end compact cameras, thanks to better imaging apparatus, convenience, and connectivity.

With the vast choice of devices and great promises of manufacturers, there is a demand to characterize image quality and performance in very simple terms in order to provide information that helps users choose the best-suited device. With a plethora of choices, exaggerated marketing claims, competing technologies, and techno mumbo-jumbo have created a confusing situation for customer planning for device acquisition; A market devoid of a transparent, open, and objective scoring system has exacerbated the situation.

For this reason, VCX(Valued Camera eXperience) was established to address the challenges.

The mission of the association is the creation and dissemination of a standard for objectively assessing the image quality of cameras in mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers, notebooks, drones, etc. The objective is to provide independent and credible information to consumers and industry alike; For experts who are in the know, an open and transparent system to build, comment, and improve upon.

The VCX Forum has been working with its members on the system and infrastructure as a nonprofit organization. Now, we will strive to improve our technology to develop and exchange accurate and objective quality and performance indicators that are our ultimate goal. We will also serve as a compass for the smart-phone camera industry. This requires constant attention and encouragement from you. We appreciate your interest in VCX-Forum.
