GoerTek has announced its third generation of the virtual reality (VR) reference platform in partnership with Qualcomm.
The head-mounted display (HMD) allows a user to experience vivid and immersive VR in a standalone form factor thanks to the design based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will be able to take advantage of GoerTek’s vast product experience to allow them to quickly bring the highest performing VR products to market. The latest generation of these VR HMD, GoerTek have been able to integrate the various subsystems including the display, advanced optics and lens, mechanical design, audio, chipset, and software. This ensures that OEMs will benefit from a lower engineering investment and an increase focus on user experience and content implementation.
Dr. Pen C. Li, Vice President, Product Marketing, GoerTek stated: “This is a pivotal moment for our industry, the launch of Snapdragon 845, together with GoerTek’s successful integration of cutting edge VR technologies, opens the opportunity to bring our users the most complete standalone VR experience ever seen. GoerTek’s extensive experience in design, engineering and manufacturing, in both components and systems, has propelled it to become a global ODM leader.”
Having already designed a number of successful VR products Goertek has proven that they are a capable partner who are able to deliver on their promises. By investing in ergonomics, thermal management and system integrations, GoerTek have successful made continuous steps forward to push their products and the VR sector forward.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform features updated architecture and subsystems that power the delivery of unprecedented VR experiences, making it a robust solution for GoerTek’s VR HMD. Additionally, the use of Qualcomm Adreno 630 visual processing subsystem allows for 20 percent faster graphics performance and 2.5x increased display while using 30 percent less power.
Hugo Swart, Head of Virtual and Augmented Reality (AR) Business Group, Qualcomm Technologies, said: “With the Snapdragon 845 Mobile VR Platform, we are paving the way for customers and developers to create the immersive and life-like experiences that our users are asking for, we are pushing forward and delivering leading technologies to support the growing product segment of standalone and smartphone VR products.”
