Sony teased a brief demonstration of its Head Mounted Display, or HMD for Virtual Reality (VR) this week, which is capable of projecting a high definition 3D environment reaching a high resolution of 4K with one eye and if both Isa an impressive 8K resolution combined. Unfortunately, the VR headset is only in the prototype stage of development but could be a stepping stone for the next PlayStation VR 2 headset currently being developed at Sony.
OLED micro display and VR headset mount display with low latency
VR headset technology was demonstrated and showcased during Sony Technology Day, where the company highlighted new technologies from its various business areas.
“This is a Virtual Reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) that projects a high-resolution 3D space and achieves a high resolution of 4K with one eye and 8K with both eyes. High image quality is achieved through multi-pixel and miniaturization with fine processing and advanced packaging technology that has been cultivated through the development and manufacture of CMOS image sensors and organic light emitting diode (OLED) micro displays using device and circuit technology that was developed through the development of Displays were cultivated. ”
“Processing time is reduced by reducing latency across the system thanks to the integration of data from multiple sensors. The person watching in VR can experience high-resolution images in real time according to their head movement. In addition to industrial applications, the OLED microdisplay will also be used in the entertainment sector, as it can reproduce the texture of materials and human expression in real time based on the viewer’s head movements in high definition. “
Full specs for the VR headset and built-in technology have not yet been released by Sony, but as always we will keep you posted as more information becomes available on the rumored PSVR 2 hardware.
