Varjo launched its next generation human-eye resolution XR/VR headsets – the XR-3 and VR-3. These two new professional-grade headsets continue Varjo’s ‘Resolution Revolution’ as the latest devices in a product line committed to delivering visual fidelity across industries where absolute precision is necessary, including training and simulation, design, engineering, medical and research.
As demand for virtual and mixed reality use cases continues to rise, particularly as much of the world continues to work remotely, the latest offerings from Varjo deliver the tools needed to scale XR/VR adoption within every industry. Featuring human-eye resolution, a 115-degree field of view, integrated eye and hand tracking, XR-3 inside-out tracking and pixel-perfect mixed reality depth awareness, professional users can perform at their highest level in a fully immersive environment.
“Our team has been working non-stop throughout 2020 to further push the envelope of what is possible in XR and VR. The new XR-3 and VR-3 are the most advanced, zero-compromise devices on the market and suitable for any professional workflow,” said Urho Konttori, co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Varjo. “We are especially excited by the introduction of depth awareness in the XR-3 through combined LiDAR and RGB video, enabling the most realistic mixed reality experiences ever seen. With our highest-performance XR, Varjo is setting the new standard for professional immersive computing and paving the way for a collaborative, cloud-enabled mixed reality workplace.”
The XR-3 and VR-3 unlock new professional applications and make photorealistic virtual and mixed reality more accessible. For example, the new headsets provide pilots and flight crews with high level of realism that replicates the feeling and conditions needed for rigorous training and simulation. Designers and creatives can experience 3D visualizations – meaning textures, reflections, colors, text, curvature and angles in shapes can be seen in clarity with a wide color gamut. Lastly, first responders or surgical teams can train together in an immersive reality, improving ways of working, communication and readiness for any medical scenario.
