Varjo Bringing Human-Eye Resolution VR/XR Cloud Streaming To Its Platform

Cloud delivery likely to accelerate widespread XR accessibility and adoption rate.

Varjo, a VR/XR hardware and software manufacturer, is bringing cloud streaming to the Varjo Reality Cloud Platform. The new service will allow users to utilize virtual and mixed reality applications and experiences via the cloud. Additionally, the service allows users to stream content at human eye resolution directly to the brand’s headsets.

VR/XR cloud streaming unlocks deeper levels of productivity and scalability for developers. This marks a step toward Varjo’s goal of creating a photorealistic metaverse. Urho Konttori, founder, and CTO of Varjo, stated in a press release, “Being able to achieve the same quality experience through Varjo Reality Cloud with less powerful local PCs is a game-changer for companies looking to scale their use of virtual and mixed reality.”

Varjo: Paving The Way For Immersive Workflows

 According to Varjo, the service will allow professionals to move into immersive workflows easily and quickly. Likewise, streaming directly from Varjo Reality Cloud reduces necessary computing specifications considerably. Additionally, the service lessens the need for supported software to be installed on users’ PCs.

“Now, with our new cloud streaming service, users can join photorealistic virtual experiences with almost any laptop with a dedicated NVIDIA GPU and a Varjo headset and start collaborating in an immersive environment,” Konttori continued. Using any of the brand’s headsets users can now join cloud sessions across the globe via a simple click.

In addition, the new cloud streaming service lets users stream immersive content with a bandwidth of just 35 megabits per second.

Among those receiving early access is electric car manufacturer, Rivian. Currently, Rivian uses the service in conjunction with Autodesk VRED to conduct vehicle design reviews. Furthermore, the two companies are working to turn Rivian’s design review process into a cloud-streaming immersive workflow. “With Varjo Reality Cloud, we are able to make high-fidelity immersion a key part of our design development and scale it effectively across locations,” said Trevor Greene, Rivian’s Head of Visualization and Design, “This is a turn-key solution that allows users with very different skill levels to be brought into an immersive environment to collaborate – something that hasn’t been possible before.”
