RDKs demonstrating advanced Visual Engines & extended FoV architectures

The leading visual engines for VR/MR today are based on pancake optics concept and classified according to the display used inside the visual engine. The fast LCD based visual engines of 2.1K resolution (and announced 3K and 4K) are having better FoV, eyebox, edge-to-edge sharpness and much cheaper. The micro OLED based 1.3" / 1.4" of 4K resolution visual engines are having more PPD and could be much more compact. Therefore, based on the use-case there is a place for both types of pancake optics based visual engines.

micro OLED vs fast LCD based visual engines pros and cons by Hypervision

To follow the VR/MR glasses market demand for visual engines, Hypervision is providing both types:

1. PanoVR1.RDK and later PanoVR1.X.RDK is based on HO140.Rev2 pancake optics by Hyprevision and 2.56" fast LCD with current resolution of 2.16K resulting 21PPD and could support up to 6K/60PPD resolution. The patented optics differentiating the PPD in central and peripheral FoV and Betta-Tilt architecture, results in FoV of up to 180x130 degrees for PanoVR1.RDK and up to 240x120 degrees for PanoVR1.X.RDK 


2. uDVR1.RDK is 

Following Apple Vision Pro (AVP) buzz, there is a growing interest to make similar and better headset requiring visual engine working with micro OLED displays. Hypervision designed HOuDpro visual engine supporting uOLED displays up to 6K resolution and 1.3" to 1.6" size. The uDVR1.RDK demonstrate superiority of HOuDpro visual engine over the visual engine used in AVP.

RDKs designed in 2023 with small size fast LCDs of 2.1" and low resolution of 1.6K, are obsolete, however, available for demonstration of technology capability : HO140.Rev1 pancake lens capabilities and VRDom architecture

1. HO140.Rev1.RDK demonstrates standard architecture VR headset with 112°x95° FoV (130° diagonal) , 18ppd and supports up to 140° FoV and 40ppd for appropriate display size and resolution.

2. VR240.GEN2.RDK is a proprietary VRDom architecture where for each eye there is a central and peripheral visual unit with software for seamless stitching. The RDK covers complete horizontal human FoV of 240°. The VR240.GEN2.RDK will be replaced by PanoVR1.X.RDK in 2025
