Almalence Digital Lens technology enables high resolution wide FoV VR HMDs

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.
