VR Maker Pimax launches its first production-grade 8K all-in-one VR headset
One of the strengths of this all-in-one VR headset is the use of interchangeable lenses to provide better clarity.
Pimax (Chinese: 小派科技) recently held its first launch event of 2022: the Pimax Crystal Launch Event and unveiled the first Reality Series product, the Pimax Crystal QLED.
Founded in 2015, Pimax is a VR hardware manufacturer that integrates product R&D, production and sales, with a series of products such as Xiaopai 8K and Xiaopai 5K, focusing on high-performance PC VR headsets.
The most important feature of this product (Pimax Crystal QLED) is that it is the first dual-mode all-in-one to achieve 8K pixel equivalents. In terms of display, the Crystal screen can achieve a horizontal subscale of 5760 pixels and a vertical resolution of 2880 pixels. It has the same pixel total as the Pimax 8K X, but weighing pixel density against field of view, it achieves a higher pixel density than the 8K range.
In addition, this all-in-one VR headset also allows the diopter adjustment of the glasses, perhaps allowing myopic users up to 700° to use the VR headset without having to wear glasses.
Optically, Crystal uses an aspherical glass lens to achieve higher light transmission, further reducing stray light and achieving low distortion.
The lenses are covered with three coating processes: anti-blue light, anti-dust and anti-reflective. This improves the durability, scratch resistance and visual protection of this product.
In terms of chip, Crystal is equipped with Qualcomm XR2 and Pimax’s custom PCVR engine dual-processor chip.
In terms of cameras, Crystal has four cameras and is capable of tracking 6DOF in wireless mode. It also has built-in eye tracking and automatic pupil distance adjustment.
In pursuit of market penetration, Pimax’s main sales position is overseas, adopting a dual-channel model of To C + To B. To C focuses on high-end game and content players , while To B targets retail, industrial, education and other industries.
