Varjo announced the official launch of its local reseller network for the first human-eye resolution virtual reality (VR) device, the Varjo VR-1. The company has chosen Immersion to equip the French market. Varjo’s local resellers will play a key role in introducing the product – designed solely for professionals in industrial design and architecture, training and simulation, as well as research – to companies and research institutions that want to build immersive experiences in human-eye resolution.

Previously only available directly through Varjo, the resellers have been handpicked and certified with the goal of providing companies with the best possible local support for acquiring, setting up and implementing the Varjo VR-1. With their deep industry knowledge, Varjo’s local resellers are well equipped to help companies start utilizing VR to shorten design life cycles and make training and research more effective, resulting in time and cost savings.

“Varjo has chosen Immersion as the first reseller in France because of their strong background and expertise in the virtual and mixed reality space. As an established player in the industry, Immersion is able to help Varjo to gain a strong foothold in the French market,” said Miika Jokinen, Sales & Channel Development at Varjo.

VR-1 comes with integrated eye tracking and full compatibility with 3D engines and software tools, including Unity, Unreal Engine, Autodesk VRED, and Prepar3d.
