"Varjo is now providing the only solution for good quality mixed reality training."

Watch the interview with Otakar Nieder from BI Simulations to hear about their groundbreaking work with the Varjo XR-1.

Bohemia Interactive Simulations has developed a cost-effective way to train helicopter pilots

Combat pilots traditionally train in simulators that use large domes where projectors display a simulated external world. These simulators can cost between $10 and $20 million dollars. But despite the high price tag, the resolution and field of view are often limited.

The emergence of virtual and mixed reality technology has raised high hopes for major cost savings and portability with the swap of dome-based visual systems with head-mounted displays (HMDs).

Bohemia Interactive Simulations has evaluated all major HMDs available on the market. Everything changed when they tried out Varjo’s headsets, as the difference between Varjo and other devices is like night and day in terms of clarity, the ability to read text, and to see objects at real-world visibility ranges. And with Varjo’s XR-1 Developer Edition, Bohemia Interactive Simulations are able to achieve a quality level in mixed reality training that is impossible with any other product.

“Varjo currently provides the best resolution inside a headset.”
