Here, we have compiled a list of the extensive range of Virtual Reality solutions ITR have to offer:

Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, a division of Facebook Inc.

The Rift has a Pentile OLED display, 1080×1200 resolution per eye, a 90 Hz refresh rate, and 110° field of view.

It boasts integrated headphones which provide a 3D audio effect, rotational and positional tracking. The positional tracking system, called Constellation, is performed by a USB stationary infrared sensor that is picking up light that is emitted by IR LEDs that are integrated into the head-mounted display.

It is completely wireless, so users can be fully engaged in virtual worlds without being tethered to a computer.

Samsung Gear

Experience the wonders of virtual reality with the Samsung Gear headset.

This particular headset works seamlessly with your choice of Samsung mobile device. Compatible devices include the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, A5 S7, S7 edge, Note5, S6 edge+, S6, S6 edge.

When in use, a compatible Samsung Galaxy device acts as the headset's display and processor, while the Gear VR unit itself acts as the controller, which contains the field of view, as well as a custom inertial measurement unit, or IMU, for rotational tracking, which connects to the smartphone via micro-USB.

The Gear VR headset also includes a touchpad and back button on the side, as well as a proximity sensor to detect when the headset is on.

These design features along with a dazzling interface, easily-accessible guides and tutorials makes the Gear VR easily one of the most accessible VR systems that is available today.

HTC Vive

The HTC Vive uses room scale tracking technology, allowing the user to move in 3D space and use motion-tracked handheld controllers to interact with the environment.

There are over 1000 games to play on SteamVR, with stunning graphics and a 110 degree field of view - and the immersion is second to none.

The Vive has a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The device uses two screens, one per eye, each having a display resolution of 1080x1200. The device uses more than 70 infrared sensors.

In addition, it also uses a MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems) gyroscope and accelerometer. It is said to operate in a 15-by-15-foot (4.6 by 4.6 m) tracking space if used with both Lighthouse base stations that track the user's movement with sub-millimeter precision.

The front-facing camera allows the software to identify any moving or static objects in a room; this functionality can be used as part of a Chaperone safety system, which will automatically display a feed from the camera to the user to safely guide users from obstacles.

Fove

Fove is the first virtual reality headset that utilizes eye tracking.

Fove's technology uses infrared to track eye movements with accuracy and low latency. There are two arrays of six IR sensors plus one infrared camera in each eye to make this a reality. The sensors within the device tracks the user's pupils. It allows the user to target and interact with objects by making eye contact with them - just like in your wildest sci-fi dreams.

This works by utilising foveated rendering - in which the user's gaze is tracked and calculated so the graphical resources are allocated to where he or she is looking. The different areas of VR world sharpens and blurs depending on where your eyes are focusing.

Microsoft Hololens Development Edition

The Microsoft Hololens Development Editions is a good choice for individual developers who are ready to get started.

The optical system that works in lock-step with advanced sensors. The HPU that makes light work of processing a large amount of data per second. All those components and more enable you to move freely and interact with holograms.

The headband is designed like a performance car with great weight distribution for a comfortable fit. Weight is distributed around the crown of your head, saving your ears or nose from undue pressure.

Advanced sensors capture information about what you're doing and the environment you’re in. Microsoft HoloLens can see, map, and understand the physical places, spaces, and things around you.

Microsoft Hololens Commercial Suite

Microsoft Hololens Commercial Suite is ideal for organizations.

The Commercial Suite includes the Development Edition hardware, plus a warranty and enterprise features for added security and device management.

Similar to the Development editor, Commercial Suite also boasts a comfortable and adjustable headband as well as advanced sensors and a HPU that can process a large amount of data per second.
