VRgineers has been named a finalist in two categories for the upcoming 2018 VR Awards by VR Bound: VR Headset of the Year and Rising VR Company of the Year.
The VR Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in the Virtual Reality industry. The judging panel includes some of the most respected experts in the Virtual Reality field. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in October.
VR Headset of the Year
VR Headset of the Year is awarded to companies producing outstanding Virtual Reality headsets year on year. Emphasis is placed on a headset’s design, feel, functions and features.
“VRgineers competes with two of the most notable companies in VR － HTC and Oculus － for the Headset of the Year award, further highlighting its standing among the leaders in the field,” says Marek Polcak, VRgineers CEO, and co-founder. “A razor-focused engineering team can become a force to be reckoned with and compete today with any global player.”
VRgineers was nominated for the VRHero 5K Plus, designed for professional use. It features double high-density Quad HD OLED displays, uncompromising 5K resolution, and full 24bit RGB colors, together with unique custom-built optics and 170º FOV, providing the highest level of image quality and realism available on the market. VRgineers latest headset XTAL was recently introduced, building upon the VRHero 5K with further improved image and additional technology including AutoEye, which automatically aligns lens positions with the user’s eyes, embedded Leap Motion hand-tracking sensor, and voice-activated commands.
Rising VR Company of the Year
Rising VR Company of the Year is given to startups with proven business models who are creating innovative solutions and driving forward ambition within the industry.
“We are passionate about moving the VR industry forward and are continually working on making the technology a real working companion in enterprise VR,” adds Polcak. “To be recognized for our efforts in a worldwide competition is truly an honor.”
