Vrgineers and IMRNext collaboration bring to life a high-fidelity wireless virtual reality headset for high-end customers
- The wireless XTAL targets high-end customers, who require fully performing computers to calculate VR content, making it the best choice for use cases such as machine and aircraft maintenance, rescue or firefighting operations, and special forces training.
- Vrgineers XTAL natively runs 4K resolution per eye, which requires a very substantial bitrate. For a smooth wireless experience, Vrgineers developed a special mode running a compressed resolution of 2560×1440 at 70 Hz per eye, which IMRNext proprietary technology transmits using Wi-Fi 6E.
- The on-belt module, including a powerful battery pack, with adjustable power capacity and wireless antennas, makes wireless usage very convenient, while the computer connects one USB and Display Port from the GPU into a proprietary IMRNext Wi-Fi Access Point, which streams it directly to the on-belt module.
Vrgineers and IMRNext have unveiled the XTAL wireless virtual reality headset at CES 2023. The high-fidelity headset targets high-end customers who require a fully performing computer to run demanding applications. The wireless XTAL natively runs 4K resolution per eye and includes an on-belt module for wireless use. The headset is aimed at use cases such as machine and aircraft maintenance, rescue or firefighting operations, and special forces training. Pre-orders are available, with an expected delivery in Q3 2023.
