Socionext and Varjo collaborate on human-eye resolution VR/XR headset

Socionext and Varjo announced the company’s ongoing co-operation around Varjo’s next-generation VR/XR solutions. Varjo’s upcoming next-gen VR/XR headset is based on a combination of the company’s patented human-eye resolution technology with Socionext’s Milbeaut image signal processing solutions.

Varjo has developed a VR/XR headset display that can visualize images at 70MP with a 100° field-of-view, which is far beyond what is supported by current first-generation VR headsets. Varjo takes advantage of the fact that the human eye doesn’t actually see the world in high resolution across its entire field of view. Rather, the eye only sees full-resolution images at 2° in the center field of vision. Varjo uses this same approach for its Mixed Reality and video-see-through (VST) headset, which enables users to see the real world with augmented content in human-eye resolution through the device.

The camera processing required for both XR and VST is incredibly complex, so Varjo selected Socionext’s Milbeaut high-performance image signal processor technology. Milbeaut is able to provide the necessary high imaging resolution and quality due to its high-definition image pipelines, fast processing speeds and low power consumption. Socionext has been providing optimized solutions for a wide range of acclaimed imaging applications in the area of DSLR cameras, smartphones and video equipment for nearly 2 decades.
