Although virtual reality headsets (VR) are fairly strong parts of the kit, they are usually intended for home use and not for the public, which can lead to excessive wear. To combat this, Pimax announced a new, robust version of its three main virtual reality glasses (HMD), 8K, 5K Plus and 5K OLED.
The new headset series is the Pimax 8K RE, 5K Plus RE and 5K OLED RE, all focused on business and entertainment based on location (LBE). While the outside has a stronger and more durable design, with improvements such as water resistance, a hard belt and thicker cables, the hardware is still the same with a 200-degree diagonal field of view (FoV) and high-resolution screens that are known company.
Currently, Pimax has not yet confirmed when the new versions will be available to business customers or how much each will cost compared to standard models.
In addition to new rugged headsets, Pimax also announced a new partnership with Ecoplants, a company that specializes in 3D scanning of PBR material (physically based rendering). The couple will be present at the GTC 2019 to present a new VR application, which aims to be used in various industries.
Kevin Henderson, head of US operations and a spokesman for Pimax VR, said:
“With the announcement of our new RE series, our goal is to redefine the value proposition for fortified B2B VR headsets to encourage and promote powerful commercial use cases with our current and future customers. We believe that in partnership with more innovative companies, such as Ecoplants, we will be able to achieve the goal of delivering VR 2.0 to the business market. ”
As Pimax continues to expand, VRcue will continue to tell you the latest news about the company’s activities.
