Varjo (Shadow in Finnish) Technologies, a leader in industrial-grade VR/XR headsets, announced it has doubled its product line offerings with two new state-of-the-art VR headsets – the VR-2 and the VR-2 Pro. In addition to the VR-1 and XR-1, these introductions are part of Varjo’s ‘Resolution Revolution’, a product line committed to delivering human eye-resolution (over 60 PPD) and fidelity to the most demanding sectors of the professional market.
Both the VR-2 and the higher-end VR-2 Pro include support for SteamVR content as well as support for the OpenVR development platform from Valve at resolutions up to 40 PPD/4K rendering per eye, so professional users can quickly and easily access a full range of applications for research, analytics, training and simulation, industrial design, and more. Through Varjo’s visual fidelity, these software tools are suitable for the rigors of the professional market, delivering pixel-perfect clarity of 3D models and simulations. The VR-2 Pro also comes with integrated Ultraleap hand tracking technology, which enables more intuitive interactions with high-fidelity VR content. This is especially impactful for simulation professionals who interact with physical controllers and switches as part of their VR training.
Building on Varjo’s advanced 20/20 Eye Tracker technology, the new products offer faster and more accurate calibration performance, giving professionals access to precise eye data for applications such as consumer research or safety-critical training. Additionally, the next-generation Bionic Display in both the VR-2 and the VR-2 Pro feature better peripheral vision and color consistency, delivering a natural visual experience needed when designing cars, architectural projects, advanced simulations or research scenarios.
