Samsung’s 4K Exynos VR Headset Has Eye Tracking
The Samsung Exynos 3 VR headset will include Visual Camp’s VR eye-tracking technology that allows foveated rendering for a better graphics performance.
Samsung’s Secret VR Headset Prototype Features Eye Tracking
Visual Camp’s VR eye-tracking technology will be mounted on the next-generation of Exynos Virtual Reality headsets. Eye tracking is essential to both virtual reality and augmented reality technologies. When applied to one or the other, the resolution on the area where the player is looking at sharpens while the rest of the display reduce its resolution. This process is called “foveated rendering”.
Other interesting technologies will also be used besides eye-tracking, such as voice recognition, hand tracking, and facial expression recognition. The Samsung’s Exynos 8890 chip CPU power consumption is relatively low and provides an outstanding performance.
Visual Camp CEO Suk Yunchan said, “By collaborating with Samsung Electronics, our technology was internationally recognized at MWCS 2017, enabling us to secure a bridgehead for future global marketing efforts. Now, we will continue promoting the high quality of Korean startup technologies and products overseas.”
Chief Executive Director Kim Jong-kap of the Born2Global Centre said, “The recent buyouts by Apple, Google, and Facebook of companies that possess eye-tracking technology show that this technology is receiving a great deal of interest within the VR industry. We therefore have high expectations for the future of Visual Camp, which has demonstrated its highly promising VR-related technology.”
