VARJO XR-3 headset - breathtaking image quality
After proving to us that pixel density was the major development axis for photorealistic visualization and that a passthrough video camera solution was an optimal solution for occluding real and virtual spaces, here comes their latest product, the Varjo XR-3 headset.
VARJO is once again pushing the boundaries of visualisation in XR headsets. Take augmented reality to a whole new level.
New on-board cameras: Inside-out, LiDAR, UltraLeap
It has a camera with consistently ultra-low latency with a new, wider lens and greater light and clarity adaptation capability.
>This new XR version retains its compatibility with SteamVR V2 tracking systems but also adds Inside-out Varjo technology for even greater usage autonomy.
It still allows for Chromakey uses but now it also embeds the latest Ultraleap ™Gemini (v5) built-in for natural interactions with your hands and 3D content.
Visual quality comparison with other headsets
A LiDAR + RGB DEPTH FUSION camera
Better management of the environment and interaction with it thanks to a LiDAR RGB camera that improves knowledge of the environment and allows for more precise interaction.
New VR-3 and XR-3 display version
With a refresh rate of 90 Hz, the XR-3 also features the world's fastest and most accurate eye tracking in VR headsets up to 200 Hz, providing users with enhanced visual fidelity through foveal rendering.
Now available this headset also has built-in Ultraleap ™Gemini (v5) hand tracking for natural interactions with your hands and 3D content.
Improved comfort and ease of use with a 3-point precision fit headband, 40% lighter weight, active cooling and an ultra-wide optical design eliminating eye strain often a pain in simulations.
