SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SPEX (https://spex-ar.com/), a new division of eSight Corporation,
The SPEX™ HMD, on display at this week's Augmented World Expo (May 30 – June 1 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, booth #526), is a hardware and software platform combining the best of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) features into an all-day wearable, head-mounted display.
The lightweight and comfortable mixed reality headset features a patented and adjustable Bioptic Tilt™ design, allowing for hands-free use and full access to native vision while supplementing that vision with panned and zoomed real-world images and video, imported images and additional external mission critical information. SPEX accomplishes this without overwriting or obstructing natural vision, allowing full situational awareness, higher work accuracy and greater safety.
"Our new SPEX HMD represents the evolution of our healthcare technology platform to now make it applicable to a broad range of commercial, medical and industrial applications," said Dr. Brian Mech, President and Chief Executive Officer, eSight Corporation. "SPEX is a proven hardware and software platform that enables application developers to rapidly deliver high-quality, mobile, mission critical applications."
The SPEX high acuity HD camera, combined with high-quality optics and rapid automatic focus, produces super vision that is better than the human eye is capable of on its own. High-resolution, fast OLED screens and custom display optics provide images at much higher contrast than AR systems with much better (3x) angular resolution than that found in VR headsets. Mixed reality objects created for the SPEX platform maintain contrast and are viewable under any lighting conditions. All of this is driven by an open Android® architecture running on a high-performance Snapdragon® processor.
"The value proposition presented by our headset and platform technology is second to none for several applications," said R. Bruce Ridley, Vice President, Business and Market Development for SPEX. "We are seeking application and development partners to provide their market expertise to collaborate with us in any number of ways."
Some of the applications envisioned for the SPEX HMD include:
