VR Headset G2 4K Enterprise from Pico Interactive now available in Europe

Barcelona / Munich, January 22nd, 2021 - Pico Interactive, one of the world's leading developers of innovative VR solutions for B2B use, has announced the immediate availability of the self-sufficient virtual reality (VR) headset Pico G2 4K Enterprise. The Pico G2 4K Enterprise is based on Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 835 Mobile VR Platform and is aimed at companies looking for a 3 DoF (Degrees of Freedom) solution with high resolution, balanced weight distribution and flexible architecture. The new headsets have 128 GB of storage space and a 25% increase in battery life compared to the previous model. In addition to the longer battery life of around two to five hours - which enables longer meetings and back-to-back training sessions - the battery can also be replaced in order to significantly extend the service life of the product in B2B use. In order to meet hygienic requirements, especially in medical applications, the replaceable pillow is made of PU and the straps are made of silicone so that the VR headset can be cleaned and disinfected with alcohol. The headset is also equipped with a 16 MP RGB front camera, with which, for example, QR codes can be recorded. The Pico G2 4K Enterprise is now available at Pico Interactive and among others at Schenker Technologies and VREXPERT available.

Brilliant 4K display and easy handling for 3 DoF scenarios

As Oculus recently announced that it would be discontinuing the Oculus Go, Pico is currently the only company in the world to offer a 3 DoF solution for businesses. The 3 DoF headsets from Pico are especially suitable for applications in which no movements in the room are required, so that only about one square meter of space is required per device. Likewise, fewer staff are required for technical support and user training. Typical application scenarios for 3 DoF headsets are interactive video conferences, interactive 360-degree inspections, training courses and numerous medical therapy applications.

The Pico G2 4K Enterprise can play content in 4K, making the virtual experience more realistic than most other headsets. The LCD display offers an unusually high resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels per eye and 818 PPI at a refresh rate of 75 Hz. The field of view is 101 °. For "Look and Chose" applications, the Pico G2 4K Enterprise can also be used without a controller in order to optimize the ease of use, e.g. for test subjects.

Thanks to the large 128 GB memory, which can be expanded by 256 GB using a microSD card, the Pico G2 4K Enterprise can also be used in stand-alone kiosk mode for simple and focused scenarios. This enables a larger number of content and applications to be stored in the company, making it ideal for applications with high storage requirements. The Pico G2 4K Enterprise has the largest memory of any 3 DoF model on the market.

"At Pico we are constantly looking for innovations, developments and feedback to improve our products," said Henry Zhou, CEO of Pico Interactive. "As other companies decided to stop selling their 3 DoF products, which companies still value, we have listened to their needs and are proud to continue to offer 3 DoF solutions - along with our 6 DoF Neo 2- Line. Businesses of all sizes looking for an immersive 4K experience have relied on our G2 4K headset since its inception. "

The COVID-19 pandemic also created a need for increased hygiene of the products. Hence Pico updated the headset with an easy-to-clean PU material. The silicone headrest and the front panel can also be disinfected without any problems. The G2 4K Enterprise is now the most advanced 3 DoF Head Mounted Display (HMD) from Pico ever developed and offers the highest standards of hygiene for training and use of the device by multiple users.

The Pico HMD's 16 MP front camera allows users to view their external surroundings without removing the headset. This is particularly useful in applications for users with visual impairments. The NuEyes team, which specializes in the development of VR applications for people with visual impairments, also played a key role in the development of the new VR HMD.

“At NuEyes, we are passionate about making everyday life easier for visually impaired people through the use of smart glass technology. When we looked at various hardware partnerships for our next iteration of the product lines in 2017, we were most impressed by Pico Interactive, "said Mark Greget, Founder and CEO of NuEyes. “With thousands of consumers wearing our device for hours, we have been able to collect valuable consumer feedback. Based on this input and the renewed collaboration with the great team at Pico Interactive, we are delighted to be able to bring a new product for the visually impaired to the market. "
