Virtual reality made a big splash in 2016 and will continue to grow as consumers become more familiar with the technology. With VR head-mount displays now available for use with home entertainment systems and PCs, consumers are experiencing VR in their own living rooms. Not just for gaming — major movies, live 360-degree music, sports and travel, educational programs, teleconferencing and real estate shopping are all a part of the experience. VR technology has caught up to the expectations of consumers and the arms race will only continue, with top-tier tech companies, domestically and internationally, investing in VR hardware.
Spectra7 has already played a major role in developing the first round of HMD technology, designing the interconnects between the displays, and their respective devices. These displays require high speeds, low latency, and massive resolutions. Only cables embedded with Spectra7 semiconductors can achieve these standards over a thin, light, long cable necessary for a comfortable hindrance-free VR experience. And as VR hardware shrinks, evolves, and requires even greater speeds and resolutions over the next decade, patented Spectra7 technology will be essential for next-gen HMDs.
