Helsinki, Finland – March 4, 2021 – Varjo™, the leader in industrial-grade VR/XR hardware and software, today began shipping its next-generation professional-grade virtual reality and mixed reality headsets – the VR-3 and XR-3. Suitable for any professional immersive workflow, both headsets boast universal PC compatibility and the cutting-edge technology needed to develop VR/AR/XR experiences where virtual, augmented, and physical realities become one.

“Varjo’s XR-3 and VR-3 headsets are not only making photorealistic immersive applications more widely accessible than ever, they are also accelerating the spatial computing revolution in the workplace overall,” said Urho Konttori, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Varjo. “Thanks to a lower price point, coupled with the absolute best technology available, such as human-eye resolution at over 70 pixels per degree and LiDAR for seamless depth awareness, these headsets unlock an entirely new set of experiences where users can no longer tell the difference between what is real and what is not. This is an essential factor for driving broader professional adoption and seamlessly integrating XR technologies into users’ daily workflows.”

Since the initial product launch in December 2020, Varjo has seen tremendous traction for these new headsets from professional users across industries, including existing customers in training and simulation, automotive and medical, as well as requests from new verticals such as higher education and remote collaboration.

For instance, the Finnish Air Force has developed a pioneering Live-Virtual-Constructive pilot training solution, combining live Hawk aircraft in the air with mixed reality simulators on the ground as part of the same training environment. In addition, Laerdal, a global leader in patient simulation, is working with Varjo with the goal of developing the next generation of immersive, effective mixed reality training for medical scenarios using the Varjo XR-3. With the help of immersive technology, teams of healthcare professionals from across the world can work together in any medical scenario, seamlessly collaborating and sharing their knowledge.

Varjo recently joined Unity’s Verified Solutions Partner program as the first extended reality hardware provider, ensuring that the latest Varjo headsets are now fully verified to work with Unity. In addition, Varjo headsets are now compatible with Unreal Engine, Lockheed Martin Prepar3d™, VBS BlueIG™, and FlightSafety Vital™, among dozens of other applications, allowing users to utilize the software they are already familiar with to create their mixed reality applications.

Companies can purchase the Varjo VR-3 and XR-3 on Varjo’s website or through one of their 35 certified reseller partners for $3,395 (USD and Euros) and $5,995 (USD and Euros), respectively.
