Even for a combination of a low-resolution projector and high-performance optics, the dynamic aberration correction technique can improve visual image quality. On the contrary, sharpening techniques result in artifacts and visually corrupted picture.
The virtual corrective optical system compensates for the deficiencies in optical performance and ensures the high resolution image is not corrupted while being transferred through the lens.
The geometry-deforming effect inherent to head-mounted display optics is removed using advanced computational imaging along with custom optical profiling tools.

“Render it Real. Computational imaging to enable a breakthrough in achieving better visual experience in VR displays”. CEO Almalence is giving a speech at AWE Asia 2021 (Sep 27-28).
The image quality of endoscopy cameras is fundamentally limited by the constrained camera size and the lighting is limited by the heat emission at the distal tip. This leads to the tradeoff between very low resolution with acceptably low noise and higher (but still low) resolution with a stronger noise level. Almalence Super-Resolution is a […]

The Digital Lens overcomes the limits of optical hardware, making the user indeed see the high resolution projected by the display.
Our first testing of Google’s super-resolution zoom recently announced in Pixel 3 shows that it indeed can restore some image details, but is still behind the best in class solutions. Compared to the “normal” digital zoom, which is basically an upscaling plus edge enhancement, Google’s zoom reveals some details that are indistinguishable in the “normal” image: ex1-digital.png,ex1-google-right.png […]
When it comes to VR/AR HMD objective testing, you need an “eye” which is much more than simply a digital camera.
