Consumers often use the megapixel count as a way to evaluate the camera and image quality of their mobile devices. However, there are many other factors that indicate image performance such as clarity under low light conditions, vibrancy of colors, and stabilization when images are in motion. In order to provide consumers with comprehensive and accurate evaluations, mobile device industry stakeholders are seeking ways to differentiate their products from their competitors.
As a result, the ICAP Camera Phone Image Quality (CPIQ) conformity assessment steering committee, based on IEEE P1858™, specifies tools and test methods to facilitate standards-based communication and comparisons among mobile operators, handset manufacturers, and component vendors regarding mobile device image quality™. The output of this program will enable an industry supported and easily understood consumer rating system, which can provide a visible indication of the image quality for multiple mobile devices that includes mobile phones and tablets.
