Varjo, provider of professional-grade VR/XR solutions, makes available its Varjo Reality Cloud platform, which allows the most complex metaverse to stream in real time to supported devices for professional and prosumer users.
Commercial availability of the Varjo Reality Cloud platform is a milestone on the company’s journey to build a hardware/software stack for scaling high-performance immersive computing across all headsets, regardless of manufacturer.
Varjo Reality Cloud is powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) in addition to NVIDIA GPUs and is future-proofed for running graphically-intensive virtual- and mixed-reality applications across any device. With Varjo’s foveated transport algorithm, users can stream immersive content from Varjo Reality Cloud to devices with a lossless visual fidelity via a compression rate of 1000:1, and a bandwidth of 35 megabits-per-second via highly secure, enterprise-grade data encryption.
Professional customers can securely stream their most complex immersive VR/MR applications and models (as well as human-eye resolution VR/XR content) from the Reality Cloud directly to Varjo’s headsets. This use case unlocks scalability and productivity for virtual and mixed reality workflows in a demanding industry for VR/MR—automotive design using Autodesk VRED.
Users will also be able to use the platform with other supported applications incorporating the leading 3D engines—Unity and Unreal Engine. Varjo intends to expand device support beyond its own portfolio of headsets to enable any user to join collaborative immersive sessions from various iOS and Windows devices including phones, tablets, and PCs in the second half of this year.
The launch of Reality Cloud is a major milestone towards Varjo’s vision of allowing real-world workflows and applications to move into photoreal-immersive environments that can be experienced across the Web in real time, the company reports. Varjo Reality Cloud with cloud streaming support for Autodesk VRED is available for up to five concurrent users per company at $1,495 per month.
