Pimax introduces Reality, a third generation standalone headset with 5.7K per eye and a 200° field of view.
Pimax has just introduced Reality 12K QLED, a $2399 standalone VR headset with 5.7K per eye resolution and an incredible 200 degree horizontal field of view.

Dual 56202720 200Hz HDR LCD panels with Mini LED illumination and a quantum dot layer will be used in reality. While standard small LCD panels employ a single back light behind the entire display, Mini LED uses thousands of tiny LED bits to achieve contrast levels comparable to OLED - albeit with some blooming. The quantum dots layer should provide a very wide color gamut, surpassing even OLED, according to Pimax.

According to Pimax, Reality will use a compound lens design that combines a fresnel and an aspheric element to gain the benefits of both. The geometric distortion seen in the peripheral view of the business's current products, according to the company, will no longer be clear in reality. The field of view is specified as 200 degrees horizontal and 135 degrees vertical, which covers the vast majority of human eyesight.

Four cameras on the headgear's front borders are used for inside-out tracking of the headset and its Oculus Touch-like controls–or your hands free.

It will have integrated eye tracking cameras thanks to a collaboration with Tobii, which will power automatic lens separation change and dynamic foveate rendering.

Pimax says an array of cameras on the bottom and sides of the headset also enable facial expression tracking and full body tracking. Fully standalone body tracking would be a first for the industry–this is seen only in research papers so far.

Reality will have two distinct PC VR modes. The typical technique delivers frames over an existing Wi-Fi network, much like Oculus Air Link or Virtual Desktop, though it's uncertain how well that will function at this resolution. For a much greater capacity connection, the high fidelity mode employs a fiber optic cable or a dedicated WiGig 2 (802.11ay) transmitter, which is probably sold separately.

If you don't already have a high-end gaming PC, Pimax wants to sell a console-style "VR Station," which is a pre-built PC with an embedded WiGig 2 adaptor that only works with Pimax Reality headsets.

Reality will employ the same Snapdragon XR2 CPU as Oculus Quest 2. With an additional cooling fan and dynamic foveate rendering, it should surpass Quest 2, although generating 4K frames while processing 11 cameras appears problematic.

In totally standalone mode, Pimax claims Reality's resolution is limited to less than 4K per eye, the range of view is limited to 150 degrees horizontal, and the refresh rate is limited to 120Hz. Pimax launched two independent games, Ragnarok and Hyperstacks, while asking additional interested developers to contact them.

According to Pimax, the Reality 12K QLED will begin delivering in the fourth quarter of 2022, with preorders beginning in the summer. Existing Pimax owners will trade in their current headset for a preorder discount equal to the original purchase price.
