The overall process is as follows:
We gather information about market trends and new products. Due to a limited budget, the board needs to select which devices to test.
The product will be purchased directly from a shop in the same way as an ordinary user would. (Please note that this course may change for timing and marketing reasons later.)
VCX requests a test from one of the “Trusted Laboratories”. This includes the three different test methods mentioned above as well as shooting and analysing a certain number of images captured under five different lightning and capture conditions.
The analysis is computational and automated. The resulting measurement results are converted into actual scores after review.
Test data, device information, and extracted images are stored in the database. The used product is also kept for a certain period of time.
Finally, the score will be made available to members and the public via the Internet website.
