Developed in collaboration with Valve and Microsoft, the Omnicept Edition of the HP Reverb G2 VR Headset provides developers with the same consumer level headset technology found in the Reverb G2, with additional features to help in the creation of VR content. In addition to the two front-facing and two side-facing cameras for positional head tracking, the Omnicept Edition incorporates sensors to monitor the wearer. This can give creators the ability to learn user responses to their environments, tweaking them as needed for an optimized experience.
As with the consumer version, the Omnicept Edition headset is compatible with Windows Mixed Reality and SteamVR, and sports dual 2.89" LCD screens featuring a 2160 x 2160 resolution per eye, for a total resolution of 4320 x 2160. The headset also has a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 114° field of view. There is interpupillary distance (IPD) adjustment, allowing you to adapt with the width of the lenses for a more comfortable viewing experience. The displays also feature full RGB subpixel stripe technology. The included motion controllers connect to the headset via Bluetooth and provide six DoF (degrees of freedom). The controllers also feature a smaller, more ergonomic design compared to the previous Reverb.
