New virtual reality headset Infinitus PRIME tVR has launched, with its creators targeting the event industry.

Billed as “the world’s most advanced and visually striking virtual reality headset”, the purpose built high-specification device has been designed with the tourism, marketing and event sectors in mind.

Howard Thompson, CEO of Infinitus Global, said: “Infinitus Global has launched more than a VR headset, we have launched an enterprise offering which has been designed to provide our customers with industry leading return on investment, low total cost of ownership, high durability, a versatile engagement model and a deep understanding of the VR marketplace and its technical breadth.

“In the event industry, production companies will purchase them and lease them out with support from us and deploy them in a commercial environment.”

Thompson, who is also the MD of UK events agency Delion, launched Infinitus PRIME tVR with business partner Marek Polcak at an event at the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge. 

The product is the result of a three-year development process with real-world testing by more than 30,000 unique users from across 60 countries.

The Infinitus Prime tVR has a higher resolution than any other commercially available VR headset, such as the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. It also has a 140 degree field of view - compared to the 90 degree field of view offered by its rivals. The device is multi-platform, working across Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, as well as providing the opportunity to run multiple headsets through one computer.

Polcak, chief technology officer at Infinitus Global, said: “An uncompromising approach to developing the ultimate VR solution drove us to create bespoke hardware and software components, coupled with the very best in commercially available technology.”
