DISPLAYLINK WIRELESS VR

VR has come of age, but current solutions require a long cable tether between the head mounted display (HMD) and the gaming PC or console. Wireless display connections enabled by DisplayLink XR technology allow VR and AR users much greater freedom of movement and will unlock a whole new range of applications in gaming, simulation, education and commerce. The design challenge needed to carefully balance the requirements for thermal management, ergonomic, aesthetic, manufacturability, functionality and performance. The distinctive design showcases the industry’s first multi-platform, high resolution, low latency wireless display solution specifically targeted at the VR head mounted display market and takes the VR user experience to a whole new level. Users can run, jump, duck and dive in a fully immersive, cable-free environment for further product details contact DisplayLink.

“DisplayLink is a chip and software company whose technology is used in products from the world’s leading PC and peripheral brands. Our DisplayLink XR technology enables a wireless VR experience, freeing the user from a long cable tether while delivering uncompromising video quality and latency indistinguishable from a wired solution. DisplayLink was looking to build a wireless VR adapter to demonstrate the technology and employed the services of DesignEdge who share our passion for creating beautiful products. The distinctive design is a careful balance of the requirements for thermal management, ergonomic, aesthetic, manufacturability, functionality and performance. DesignEdge presented a number of initial concepts that demonstrated their understanding of our needs. The considerable knowledge and experience of the team at DesignEdge allowed the concept to quickly evolved into a fully functional reference design fit for small volume production. The product has gone on to be the centre stage attraction at our stand at CES 2018 and helped promote wireless VR.”
