If there’s one thing the virtual reality (VR) industry and its fans aren’t short of it’s new headsets. HP Reverb arrived yesterday while Oculus Rift S and Oculus Quest hit the shelves later this month. And let’s not forget Valve Index of course. Today, Chinese headset manufacturer Pico has released its new device, the Pico G2 4K, for North American and European enterprise use.
Solely designed for business use, the new Pico G2 4K features an LDC display boasting a 3840 x 2160 resolution, with a refresh rate of 75Hz and a PPI of 818, all powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Weighing in at 278g, the headset has 32GB of storage (upgradable with MicroSD cards up to 256GB), 3 degree’s of freedom (3DoF) tracking, plus compatibility with the Pico Store and Viveport for content.
In addition to the launch announcement, Pico has also begun a new partnership with Headjack which develops apps and business solutions for the VR market. “As we introduce our new G2 4K headset into North America and Europe, we also continue to align ourselves with leading business services within the VR and AR industry. With Headjack, we felt that both our current and future business partners could easily create and control white-label VR apps through their intuitive tools,” said Leland Hedges, Commercial Director, Pico Interactive, EMEA in a statement.
“Upon hearing about Pico’s VR headsets from our clients and their desire to build out content in an enclosed, branded environment, we did some research into Pico Interactive and saw a perfect fit between our tools and the Pico hardware. We were particularly interested in their native Kiosk Mode found in every headset and were wowed by their latest G2 4K VR headset,” adds Coen Kraaijvanger, Commercial Director at Headjack.
