March 24, 2019

The headset offers a staggering resolution for a more immersive experience.

HP today has just announced a new VR headset that would join its current VR portfolio. Called the Reverb, the new VR headset that offers a new staggering 2160-by-2160 pixel per yet and a wide 114-degree field of view. The Reverb weighs only half a kilogram, meaning that the device won’t be a pain to wear even for long periods.

HP said that they’ve worked with various customers to address the three specific pain points for VR headsets. This include visual quality, fit and comfort and lastly deployment and support. HP mentioned that these three details were the reasons why they’ve made the HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset.

Additional features of the Reverb include integrated Bluetooth that includes pre-paired motion controllers straight out of the box along with support for Windows Mixed Reality and even Steam VR. There are integrated headphones that support spatial audio along with support for the latest smart assistants.

“With more than 2,500 VR experiences available and counting, Windows Mixed Reality continues to serve as the home for cutting-edge innovations that are fundamentally changing the way we work and play,” said Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow, Microsoft. “The HP Reverb headset is an amazing example of the type of innovation we are seeing take place as we push forward and bring the next era of computing – the era of mixed reality – to the masses.”

HP’s Reverb Virtual Reality Headset – Pro Edition will retail for 2,380 AED while the HP Reverb Consumer Edition will arrive in May for 2,000 AE. Both headsets will carry a one-year limited commercial warranty.
