Lenovo Announces Standalone 4K Headset Designed For Enterprise VR
4K visuals, hands-free control, and a removable face plate ready for mass use.
Developed in partnership with Pico interactive, the Lenovo Mirage VR S3 is an upcoming all-in-one VR headset designed specifically for enterprise use. Unveiled earlier today during a keynote speech by Nathan Pettyjohn, Commercial AR/VR Lead, Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo, at the VR/AR Global Summit Online Conference, the VR S3 includes a variety of enterprise-focused capabilities aimed at pleasing professionals across various fields.
This includes a crisp 4K display, support for either hands-free or single controller interaction, built-in audio, a rugged, lightweight design, and a removable, easy-to-clean face plate; resulting in a convenient standalone experience aimed specifically at workforce training. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip, the 3DoF headset features a 101-degree field-of-view and a battery life of approximately 3 hours. Enterprise-focused applications can be accessed via ThinkReality, Lenovo’s device-and-cloud agnostic AR/VR platform. Running on the VR S3, this software allows employers to manage applications on a global scale with the support of a professional IT support team.
“VR helps achieve better, faster training at lower cost,” said Nathan Pettyjohn in an official release. “Our enterprise customers are looking for solutions to build and enable more skilled and efficient global workforces. They are increasingly looking for cutting-edge solutions like VR and AR supported by ThinkReality’s flexible platform to scale applications enterprise-wide.”
The easy-to-clean face plate and standalone functionality makes the Lenovo Mirage VR S3 an attractive training solution for healthcare workers working on the front line of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Safe, repeatable training solutions are in high demand among hospitals and healthcare facilities across the globe, whether it be retraining retired healthcare professionals looking to lend support during the pandemic or educating new personnel working in post-acute care and long-term care facilities.
“Lenovo is placing a significant amount of resources into developing emerging business solutions to support our customers’ sophisticated needs and endeavors,” added Ganesh Raghu, Director of Lenovo’s Emerging Technology Solutions & Services. “These solutions require an elevated support model, like Lenovo Integrated Solutions Support, that goes beyond individual products and instead focuses on managing complex issues across the entire solution to limit downtime and create a better customer experience.”
The Lenovo Mirage VR S3 will be available for purchase Q3 2020 in North America, China, Japan, United Kingdom, France, and Spain for under $450 (North America price). The VR S3 is also included as part of the Lenovo VR Classroom 2 education solution. Companies interested in learning more can contact a Lenovo representative or visit here.
