Digital Lens addresses the smear and aberrations inherent to thin and lightweight VR HMD optics.
First objective quality measurements performed with a demo based on HTC Vive showed up to 2.7 times effective resolution improvement and suppression of chromatic aberrations even at the edges of field of view.
The technology opens the door for high resolution displays, solving the problem of optical performance which does not allow to harness the full advantage of extra display resolution. It also enables wide field of view HMDs where any acceptable picture quality at wide angles cannot be achieved with an optical design alone.
Aberration and MTF charts from the report on quality measurement, comparing HTC Vive built-in lens correction to Almalence Digital Lens:

This year we will bring to MWC:
- A live demo of our breakthrough VR quality improvement technology. An enabler for next generation high resolution HMDs, Almalence DLVR technology solves the problem of thin and lightweight optics quality without adding extra size or weight to VR/AR HMDs
- Latest generation of mobile image and video improvement solutions. High resolution, lossless zoom, better low light performance and higher dynamic range plus image stabilization altogether in a single solution, available for both still image capturing and video/preview!
- Next generation image and video improvement technologies to be brought to the market in 2018
Demo by invitation only. Please contact us to schedule a meeting.
