The Varjo XR-4 virtual reality headset will be released in the coming weeks. Previously announced earlier this month, the “Varjo XR-4” series is a cutting-edge next-generation VR/MR head-mounted display that boasts the highest level of fidelity. Combining the highest resolution displays, foveated capture streams, advanced LiDAR depth sensing, and camera sensors, these elements combine to mimic the functionality of the human eye, making it nearly indistinguishable from natural vision.
Varjo XR-4 GPU
Optimized to run on NVIDIA GPUs and integrated into NVIDIA Omniverse, the XR-4 series enables developers and enterprise users to render photorealistic scenes and raytracing in mixed reality.
The combination of these technologies overwhelms the computing power achievable with mobile SoCs, which are more commonly used in head-mounted displays made by other companies, and is a game-changer for developers. A Varjo-produced software ecosystem of over 100 third-party PC applications and 3D engines, including Unreal Engine and Unity, powers the XR-4 for the world’s most demanding workflows across training and simulation, design and engineering, healthcare, and more.
The Varjo XR-4 Focal Edition includes all the features of the XR-4, plus a line-of-sight autofocus camera and camera resolution further optimized for pilot training and other cockpit use cases. is provided.
