Professional VR Headsets

High performance VR kits designed for commercial applications

VR for the Graphics Professional

Virtual Reality (VR) provides an added dimension when used in conjunction with professional graphics such as architecture and building development, component design or interactive training. The immersive experience allows the most realistic representation of the product or environment your projects and organisations are concerned with.

When using a high performance GPU-accelerated graphics workstation it is imperative that the VR headset you choose delivers the resolution and scale required to effectively view your virtual world, and that the software application(s) you are using supports the VR experience you require.

Types of Professional VR

There are two main types of VR headset, that differ in specification as determined by their intended uses - PC-powered or standalone. The PC-powered VR experience is mostly determined by the graphics card (GPU) with higher-spec models delivering smoother frame rates and better visual quality. There will also be likely much greater processor power and storage within a PC, to make more complicated VR environments function well, and access to many more VR-ready software applications rather than an app store. The down side is that this enhanced experience needs to be tethered (using an HDMI cable) to the PC to provide the higher quality experience, so overall costs will be higher. It is worth mentioning that multiple VR headsets can be supported by a particularly powerful PC - either in the same environment or using virtual machine (VM) software to create multiple concurrent user experiences.

Display Quality Very High High
Flexibility Cables required No cables required
Applications Supported PC and Apps Apps (PC optional)
Proposed Usage Prosumer / Professional Professional

Standalone VR offers great flexibility as the headset is wirelessly connected directly to the Internet and an app store or similar where VR applications can be accessed. No external device is required to create the VR environment (although a smartphone or tablet is needed to initially set-up the headset on first use), so costs can be reduced. There are however some limitations - as all the compute power resides in the headset, there can only be limited processing power, storage capacity and quality of image may suffer if the wireless connection isn’t consistent or fast enough - that said the VR headsets designed for professional use do have optional PC connection when rendering more complex imagery is required. You can learn more about the two types of VR by reading our VR buyer’s guide.
