Virtalis has updated its Visionary Render software. Visionary Render v1.3, creates a plug-and-play interface that is standard in the software, featuring just one button in the GUI, for the new generation of consumer HMDs, including Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, the company states. In addition, other desktop devices, such as the zSpace and stereo displays are supported easily.
For the first time too, eye-tracking data can be harvested from subjects exposed to VR models via the Arrington Eye Tracker. Virtalis has delivered head-mounted display systems with built-in Arrington systems for many years, but this is the first time the data has been integrated into Virtalis software.
“You don’t need to buy any separate modules to use all these new devices in the VR armory now, significantly decreasing the cost of desktop immersion. We have striven to pack in all this functionality, so our customers have access to it all without leaving their desks. At Virtalis, we have always developed software to link best-in-class VR hardware with users’ 3D data to create integrated VR systems that both make technology accessible and maximize benefits. Visionary Render v1.3 does just that by making everything so much more convenient,” says Andrew Connell, technical director at Virtalis.
