Just like for any other display device, the resolution of a VR headset refers to the number of pixels that can be displayed at one time. As an example, the Varjo XR-3 offers a resolution of 1920 x 1920 pixels per eye for the focus area and 2880 x 2720 px per eye for the peripheral area. This is the highest spec offered by a VR / XR device on the market today.
Resolution is best measured as pixels per degree (or PPD) in a user’s field of view.
Varjo XR-3 and VR-3 are the only devices in the world to achieve human-eye resolution (over 60 PPD), allowing users to see and read the smallest of details in virtual reality in perfect clarity. Varjo Aero features the highest resolution of any consumer device today (over 35 PPD), allowing users to see and experience VR environments in a crystal-clear way. With dual mini-LED displays, crystal-clear aspheric lenses, and a 115° field of view for stunning edge-to-edge clarity, the device offers a massive step up in visual fidelity over consumer-grade virtual reality headsets.
