The 140-Degree Field of View of the Infinitus Prime tVR
Compared to hybrid tablets or smartphones, the adoption of Virtual reality as a comparatively new field of technology is rising globally at the moment. Even though it is still at its development stages, VR headset technology is advancing with the speed of light.
As much as the HTC Vive or Samsung’s Gear VR offer content and experience that nobody would have thought about few years ago, to get a real measure of the level of advancement in virtual reality, the Infinitus Prime tVR is the best option to be tried out as it is a VR headset that surpasses all others in terms of purpose, viewing angles and resolution. Firstly, the 140-degree field view which the Infinitus Prime tVR offers can only be matched by the LG V10 smartphone featuring two front cameras working together.
Other VR headsets have barely touched the 100-degree field of vision mark talk more of reaching 140-degree anytime soon. The Infinitus Prime tVR comes with a 5,120 x 1,440 pixel resolution compared to HTC Vive VR‘s 2,160 x 1,200 pixel resolution. This broadens the limits of the capabilities of VR headsets by a significant margin. However, the headset works with a Display Port and a USB port. It also has Bluetooth connectivity, a sound card and a microphone. It is being widely speculated that future versions of the Infinitus Prime tVR will feature a wider field of vision, 4K add-on cameras and a generally user-friendly headset design.
Unfortunately, the Infinitus Prime tVR is presently meant to be used by large businesses and organizations, not regular customers. It carries a price tag of $3,000 and it needs the support of a powerful PC for its superior graphics requirements and high-resolution content. The Infinitus Prime won’t come with pre-loaded content unlike the Samsung Gear VR or HTC Vive. It also will no give access to online stores where you can purchase high-resolution content or VR games. Instead the company that builds it, Infinitus Global will let the businesses and organizations that want it select the content they want in it.
Its open source characteristic makes it possible to use the headset to play theme park rides, offer simulation experiences to pilots, drivers of high-speed vehicles and astronauts and can even help engineers and surgeons perform detailed and critical procedures.
The makers of the headset, Infinitus Global is in presently discussing with an online TV service in the U.S. as well as a Japanese school which offers VR courses for its students. They have also had the device tested by thousands of people and companies. The capabilities of the device will be known once it is officially launched, and may get to use one if businesses wish to pass on the technology to their customers in the near future.
