There are more and more enterprises that are joining to virtual reality, either adopting this technology in their work process, or like Facebook, HTC, HP… daring to sell their own virtual reality glasses.
In only a few years, the number of providers have increased significatively, enough, to form a long list of virtual reality brands.
There are many brands and each of them has launch to the market new versions of their glasses, that’s why we find a big number that compete to reach the big market, both, business to consumer and business to business markets.
It is true that not every brand has manage to positionate as main competitors in the market.
It highlights Oculus (by Facebook), HTC or Microsoft.
In VT-Lab we have several years of experience and there are many vr devices that we have used over time. These are the main HMD that we want to mention.
HTC VIVE has a good resolution of 2600x1200px offering a nice level of detail. We have used this HMD in many VR projects. Principally in industry.
HTC VIVE PRO reach a more realistic level of immersion that previous models and a better level of detail, furthermore they are comfortable (especially to those who wear graduate glasses)
On the other hand, HTC Focus is a good HMD too and is standalone.
In order to Oculus, we want to mention:
Oculus Go offers a standalone Virtual Reality experience that’s wireless and doesn’t require a smartphone in order to work (apart from for initial setup).
Oculus Quest is also a standalone Virtual Reality headset that doesn’t require a PC to run, instead, it runs on the power of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile chip set.
Oculus Rift CV1: we have used this HMD also in several projects and we are pretty satisfy with the results and the quality. It has a good resolution of 2160x1200px.
Microsoft, for its part, offers their mixed reality platform: Windows Mixed Reality, through different devices:
HP: We have told in previous post about this HMD. Is a headset with which we have worked in many occasions with good results (like events as Construtec 2018).
Samsung Odyssey HMD also works with Windows Mixed Reality. The resolution of this glasses is 1440 x 1600 px per eye.
Lenovo Explorer have a resolution of 2880×1440 px. We emphasize their lightness and comfortability.
Acer is a device with good features and an economic price. The configuration is very simple and fast, and offers 6 degrees of freedom.
What we want to highlight of Dell device is its weightless comfort.
Asus VR HC102 has a very modern design and works with a maximum resolution of 2880 x 1440 px.
The VR market is experiencing an exponential growth, and there are even more brands joining to virtual reality technology. There is still a long way to go and develop but what we know until now counts already with more than acceptable levels of quality. We wait with illusion everything what is yet to come and we’ll manage to benefit the most of it.
We will tell you all the news.
Here you have a list with some post that we have written previously and the main characteristics of some of this devices.
