DCS and Pimax


Wags

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

While it's too early to know exactly what will come from it, we are in touch with Pimax regarding their 8K system and how we can best cooperate for an amazing DCS VR experience.

 

Thanks,

Matt

This is great news!!! Might be a game changer for me. I got rid of the CV1 because the resolution wasn't good enough. 4K VR is going to be the way to go!

only 8 days left in their kickstarter....

 

not wanting to pledge $500 to get a 8K horizontal Unit if nothing comes from it.

 

And there's little to no specs about the 5K

Love it, but with what hardware?! Lol

 

At $500 I doubt they licensed Dual HDMI MiPI boards for rendering a 7680x2160 image,

 

It'll likely be half that, and simply upscaled.

 

The Issue w/ Current VR Headsets isnt the Game's Input Resolution, but the resolution / PPI of the Screens themselves.

The fact that Eagle Dynamics is reaching out Pimax is an excellent news.

 

There is no better way to improve VR experience than these two companies working together to optimize both products. I'll wait and see for the release of the Pimax and the firts reviews by Matt))

Hm, ok. Still very impressive. Maybe a little OT, but - in principle the delivered input for that device might be roughly the same as when you crank up resolution (scaling) for DCS, with the difference being that currently the image is downscaled on the headset´s displays?

I´m all pro VR headsets with better resolution. OCR is great, but a lot of the beautiful detail gets lost in there.

The Difference is the Aspect Ratio, it will be a significantly wider FoV and Rendered Image.

 

PiMAX 8K

7680x2160 = 3.3

 

Rift/Vive

2160x1200 = 1.8

 

3 Screen 1080p

5760x1080 = 5.3

What about working with the Windows VR partners? They are better established and have more mature, better backed products. My experience with the Pimax was poor at best. The screens are up scaled from a lower resolution, the lenses and LCDs are of poor quality, the software is amateurish and quite buggy. I don’t understand your decision to pick them as a partner.

I don't know how much faith I put in the Pimax product line, but I hope that the meeting will lead to broad improvements/efficiency gains for all VR HMD's used in DCS.
