For many users, the wires that connect the VR headset to the PC are a nuisance. In multi-user environments, they can create dangerous and traumatic situations. Although many VR centres and arcades use backpack PCs to get around this obstacle, it’s still not an ideal solution.
After the successful introduction last year of wireless solutions for individual use ( for Vive and Windows MR headsets ), TPCAST promised to create a multi-user solution. And now the company is going to demonstrate at the Digility Expo in Cologne, Germany, a completely new level of wireless virtual reality.
At the event, you can consider directly in action a wireless solution for VR headsets based on the business version of the wireless adapter TPCAST.
The multifunctional wireless TPCAST VR solution allows simultaneous connection of up to 16 people. It supports video quality of 2K and a delay of less than 2 ms for HTC Vive headsets. The business version of the adapter, in addition to video games, is focused on multi-user experience for the needs of a wide range of areas, including medical and educational institutions, the automotive industry, real estate and others.
“Our multi-user wireless solution offers a real experience of VR for a group of people up to 16 people. Wireless multiplayer games will bring a lot of benefit to arcades, as they provide players with a real immersive VR experience. But this is not the only application. Enterprises can get rid of cables or laptops in a backpack when working together on projects in virtual reality, “commented Rainer Pes, CEO of TPCAST EMEA.
The kit with adapter consists of four parts: transmitter modules for PCs, receiver modules for helmets, power supply unit and business class router.
The equipment will be demonstrated in Cologne at the Digility Expo, which will be held on September 26 and 27, 2018. The TPCAST team will be at the Hall 5.1 Stand A4 stand, where it will conduct live demonstrations of product functionality in various multi-user settings.
