The JVC headset doesn't have quite as wide of a viewing angle as the Pimax 5K+, but it's still more expansive than most VR headsets at 120-degrees. Keep in mind, JVC is making a mixed reality device, not a VR device. 120-degrees is more than twice as wide as you get in the Magic Leap One or Hololens 2.
JVC Kenwood is developing a new display method for the upcoming headset. JVC's new method uses mirrors instead of lenses, which the company said reduces distortions such as chromatic aberration and allows for clear peripheral vision.
Samsung Is Going All In. Samsung is one of the leading companies in the virtual reality space. Years of research into virtual reality are finally paying off for the company. At virtual reality conventions, Samsung's products are often regarded as one of the most popular, based on feedback from attendees. Currently, the Samsung Gear VR is the most popular virtual reality headset on the market. Things in the market might change in a few years, but for now Samsung is in the lead.
The upcoming JVC headset is a mixed reality device, which means your view of the real-world doesn't get cut off. Mogura VR describes the feature as a half-mirror for the image projection, which allows you to see beyond the mirror.
JVC intends to deploy these headsets in training simulations, such as pilot training. The idea is that users would see the augmented experience while interacting with physical props, such as the dials and switches in a cockpit.
The new headset also features SteamVR tracking, and it should be compatible with Vive wands and Index controllers. No word on when it would be available, nor how much it would cost. Suffice to say, the fact that it's for enterprise means it's going to be expensive.
