Lenovo virtual reality headset for the enterprise metaverse

Lenovo

Lenovo has launched a new all-in-one virtual reality headset for use in the enterprise that offers a range of VRX features.

Lenovo ThinkReality VRX works with six- or three-degrees-of-freedom content and operates as a standalone device or tethered to a PC or workstation for streaming experiences. The ThinkReality VRX is also capable of utilizing cloud-based rendering solutions, such as NVIDIA CloudXR for graphics-intensive XR experiences requiring high-end, GPU-based performance.

The comfortable fitting, slim profile six-degrees-of-freedom ThinkReality VRX features pancake optics and full colour, high-resolution pass-through capabilities for mixed reality (MR) applications. The ThinkReality VRX is also supported by a full suite of end-to-end services to help businesses achieve speed-to-solution and realise return on investment faster.

The Lenovo ThinkReality VRX is built to be the VR solution for workers everywhere. The immediacy and fidelity of new digital tools experienced through extended reality (XR) devices means workforces are becoming nearly unconstrained by time and space. From improving efficiency in employee training and virtual collaboration to expanding design and engineering tasks in 3D, XR technologies are becoming more important than ever for businesses enabling hybrid workers to do more.

VR, in particular, is delivering impressive results in training applications. Businesses are experiencing up to 4X faster training on soft skills compared to classroom training and more confidence in applying skills learned in VR. In addition, VR training can reduce the risk of injury at the workplace.

The built-in ThinkReality software platform empowers IT and operations with the ability to deploy, configure and manage XR devices at scale. Enterprise customers can support workers with updates and analytics to optimise worker performance.

The Lenovo ThinkReality VRX headset incorporates several key design advancements to make it more comfortable for extended VR sessions in the office, at home, or anywhere the hybrid workforce is getting things done. Innovative pancake optics and the slim form factor reduce the overall profile of the headset while optimal battery position for better weight distribution and balance provides a better fit and feel. The all-in-one VR headset also features materials that are easy to keep clean between uses.

Four front mounted cameras provide 6DoF tracking, as well as two full colour, high-resolution pass-through cameras to provide workers with a better, uninterrupted user experience as they perform tasks. Pass-through technology also offers MR application capabilities, allowing users to superimpose 3D graphics on the real-world so workers can get more done with a single XR device.

 “Our customers are looking for reliable, flexible and scalable gateways into the growing Enterprise Metaverse. They need business-class solutions for the new realities of working in hybrid scenarios and virtual environments” said Vishal Shah, GM of XR and Metaverse, Lenovo. “We engineered the Lenovo ThinkReality VRX to be the VR solution of choice for training and collaborating in immersive 3D.”
