StarVR's latest enterprise headset features built-in eye tracking

Furthermore, the StarVR One features game developer Valve and hardware maker HTC's updated device tracking solution known as SteamVR 2.0.

"StarVR continues its legacy of innovation that pushes past the barriers standing in the way of enterprise-grade VR experiences", said Emmanuel Marquez, CTO of StarVR Corporation.

While full details have not yet been released, StarVR has confirmed the headset will include a custom AMOLED display and Fresnel lens system which offer 210-degree horizontal and 130-degree vertical fields of view - covering almost all of a person's natural field of vision, the company claims.


StarVR has introduced what it says is the world's most advanced virtual reality headset. According to the company, this comes close to covering normal human peripheral vision. This provides almost 100 percent of natural human vision, with additional features including advanced optics, a VR-optimized AMOLED display serving up 16 million sub-pixels at a refresh rate of 90 frames per second (FPS), and integrated eye tracking. The company explains that these are proprietary displays made for virtual reality, presenting full RGB and real-life colors. It's something Tobii bragged about in January when we took one of its eye-tracking-enabled headsets for a test drive at CES this year. The displays are coupled with Fresnel lenses, which are said to provide clear optics across the entire FOV. With eye-tracking it will also be possible to apply dynamic foveated rendering, so the location your eyes are looking is also where the most detail will be. 'The StarVR One headset represents an important proof point for the many ways that eye tracking fundamentally leads to enhanced experiences.

The StarVR One XT shares all of these same components inside, but offers up a completely integrated device tracking system, with the headset embedded with active optical markers. The headset weighs only 450g and the headband evenly distributes the weight to ensure comfort even during extended sessions and longer use.

"Unreal Engine is renowned for its ability to render visuals that are unparalleled in quality for immersive VR experiences, many of which are mission-critical and business-priority use cases", said Simon Jones, director of Unreal Engine Enterprise at Epic Games.
