As more virtual reality headsets are introduced into the market, it can be confusing to decide which one will best suit your organization’s needs. We talked with our sales and customer success teams to find out which headsets our customers are using and why. Here’s what they had to say:
Our Customers’ Top Picks
Pico Neo 3 – According to our sales and customer success team, the Pico Neo 3 is the headset that is most popular across all of the industries we serve. When it comes to comfortability, the balanced front and rear weight with its ergonomic design, makes for a comfortable experience even when wearing it for long periods of time. Currently on the market, this is one of the easiest headsets to set up and access your training content. PIXO’s app pairs perfectly with the Pico headsets which removes the need to sideload your content. You are able to wirelessly distribute your training modules to any headset in the world, saving you time, resources, and money.
Casting with the Pico 3 is as easy as clicking a few buttons and you are able to share what you are seeing real-time in the headset to any TV, Laptop, or Smartphone. Pairing a Pico headset with an MDM enhances your experience. It is very simple to pair with an MDM and makes our customers’ lives a whole lot easier.
Why add an MDM? The benefits include: device inventory and tracking, application distribution and updates, password enforcement, application whitelisting and blacklisting, and virtual in-headset support.
Pico Neo 4 – Note, this product is currently not available in the U.S., but PIXO has a close relationship with Pico so here is what we have been able to learn and experience firsthand about the headset.
When we first opened the box we fell in love with the look and feel of the headset. The Pico 3 was easy to setup to begin with, but the 4 has taken the simplicity of setup to another level. Compared to the 3, the weight on the front end of the Pico 4 has been reduced by 26.2% and the thickness by 38.3%. There are many new and improved features of the Pico 4 compared to the 3 including Pancake optical lenses which makes the headset lighter while giving you a wider field of view and clearer images. A brand new technology advancement to the Pico lineup is color see through. You are now able to see the real world through the headset with one click of a button. Just like with the Pico 3, the same PIXO append MDM pros also apply to the Pico 4.
HTC Vive Focus 3 – HTC really focus on the controller-free VR and high fidelity hand tracking. You are able to set your controllers down at any point to activate hand tracking which allows you to interact with virtual surroundings in a new way. You are also able to navigate menus with a simple pinch of your fingers, click, drag, type, and scroll with your bare hands, and customize your boundaries without the need of a controller. Some of the top technical aspects of the headset include: 5K resolution, 120 degree field of view, and an active cooling mechanism which maintains the device temperature at an ideal level.
Casting with the Vive Focus 3, is an easy experience and allows you to share what you are seeing in the headset in real time with anyone else. The PIXO app works in the MENA region with the vive in the and allows for quick, easy, distribution of your VR training. Pairing an MDM with the HTC Vive Focus 3 enhances the experience of the headset by improving: device inventory and tracking, application distribution and updates, password enforcement, application whitelisting and blacklisting, and virtual in-headset support.
New Headsets Our Customers are Most Excited About
Lenovo ThinkReality VRX – Note, this product is currently not available but will be debuting later this month, PIXO has been working closely with the Lenovo team and this is what we know so far about their new VR headset.
The Lenovo ThinkReality VRX headset is made for enterprise. It has been engineered to meet the needs of enterprise organizations and is built for long life and reliable operation. It also supports enterprise-grade security practices with a secure supply chain and manufacturing process.
The VRX will come equipped with 6DoF experiences and full-color, high resolution passthrough capabilities. From a comfortability factor, the VRX is different from Pico or Quest where it does not have the over the head strap, and the battery is positioned in a way that it leads to better weight distribution.
Overall, no matter what your organization’s needs are, there is a headset out there for you. Ranging from the seamless integration of PIXO’s app with the Pico 3 and 4, the new 6DoF experiences with the Lenovo VRX, or the controller free hand tracking with the HTC Vive, you are bound to find the perfect headset for your organization’s training needs. There are other headsets currently on the market, but these are our customers’ top picks.
