VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SIGGRAPH 2018 – StarVR®, the leader in premium virtual reality (VR) for the enterprise, and Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, today announced the companies are collaborating to bring break-through VR to the automotive design and engineering sector with VRED Professional, optimized for the new StarVR One head mounted display. The Autodesk VRED Professional solution is being demonstrated at the StarVR Booth #421 at the SIGGRAPH 2018 show today through Thursday, Aug. 16.
VRED 3D product visualization and virtual prototyping software supports automotive designers and engineers in the creation of product presentations, design reviews, and virtual prototypes in real-time. The new VRED Professional for StarVR solution leverages the high resolution of the StarVR headset, presenting 16 million sub-pixels, with the high fidelity of VRED's rendering capabilities. The result is a high-quality VR experience that meets the demands of the automotive design and engineering sector in supporting business-critical styling, material and quality decisions.
StarVR’s next-generation VR headset, StarVR One – unveiled today at SIGGRAPH 2018 – features the most advanced optics, nearly 100-percent field-of-view, professional-grade color spectrum, and custom full RGB AMOLED displays for a stunning life-like and immersive VR experience ideal for enterprise use. Featuring integrated eye tracking, StarVR One enables dynamic foveated rendering, which concentrates high-quality rendering directly where the eyes are focused. This is especially beneficial when loading demanding data sets at 90 frames per second under its wide field-of-view. To further optimize visual quality, StarVR One supports dual-input VR SLI, maximizing rendering performance.
“Virtual reality adds significant value to engineering and design, however to date, the ability to visualize models with enough realism to be used for virtual prototyping, design review, and change management systems, has been lacking. With the launch of VRED Professional optimized for StarVR One, this significant constraint to innovation has now been lifted,” said Emmanuel Marquez, CTO of StarVR Corporation. “We are proud to collaborate with Autodesk, a pioneer in the design and engineering visualization space to unleash an unparalleled immersive VR experience that promises to play a significant role in defining the next-generation of automotive design.”
Detlev Reicheneder, director of Design & Manufacturing Marketing, Autodesk said, “A critical barrier for VR technology adoption is the limited availability of visual quality and range of headsets. StarVR One enables our joint customers to explore new evaluation methods, make good decisions early, and reduce time overall.”
StarVR Corporation is dedicated to the innovation of professional virtual reality solutions, with a focus on high-end enterprise applications and location-based entertainment. At the core of its commercial solutions sits the StarVR head-mounted-display (HMD). The next-generation StarVR® One headset features an industry-leading 210-degree field-of-view and integrated eye tracking, proprietary full RGB AMOLED displays with 16 million sub-pixels and custom designed lenses.
