Having to achieve high resolution, wide field of view, and large eye-box, the VR/AR head-mounted display makers face the challenges impossible to overcome by hardware design alone. Even the latest and greatest head-mounted displays retain the common flaws spoiling user experience: blur and color fringing outside of the small “sweet spot,” picture quality degradation and geometry distortion at wide gaze angles, and a tiny eye box.
To achieve realistic picture quality, optical fidelity, and natural visual experience, it becomes necessary to use advanced image pre-processing techniques beyond the standard geometry warp and channel scaling.
Almalence Digital Lens is a computational solution allowing to correct optical aberrations and distortions in head-mounted displays by utilizing a precise characterization of HMD optical properties along with a patented dynamic aberrations correction algorithm, adjusting on-the-fly to the eye-tracking data.
A one-minute demo with HP Reverb G2 Omnicept:
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.
Almalence announces a line of its Human Eye Simulators with a variety of camera designs to make an ideal fit for specific optical measurement requirements.
Meet us (it’s time to go spatial – so, in person!) at AWE USA on June 1-3, 2022. See our newest demos on some latest and greatest VR devices and hear a speech by Almalence CEO covering the latest advances in computational methods for achieving picture quality beyond the optical design limitations in head-mounted displays.
