looking at the Pimax 8K I see an on/off button, does that mean it has no auto on/off sensor that the major VR headsets have, so in a ways its a bit like the Oculus Rift DK2.
It has both sensor and button. The button is for standby
thank christ for that, they should clarify that somewhere.
The 4k has both as well. Though with any headset best to have off/unplugged when not in use.
my vive has been plugged in since launch day. woops
Just more of a precaution. If the sensor is blocked one could end up with a screen burn in; if a static image remains on for long periods of time.
@SweViver did you just broke NDA ?!?!?!?!??!!? Kidding Mate
If the 8k uses lcd panels, shouldn't burn-in be very unlikely/impossibel? Same for the 4k right?
We did have a user potenially get burn in on the 4k with sensor blocked.
How? I've read that lcds can't get burn in. Only persistence, but that's not always permanent.
I thought the same
Oled apparrently can get it as well. Probably one of the reasons dell cancelled their oled computer monitor.
My guess really long period of time & appears to be fixable to sime degree to completely on lcd.
Here is the oled BE model
Here is the 4k lcd model
Oled burnin Article.
There’s a power button on the 4K but it’s inactive. And that’s a good thing because it’s next to the volume buttons and I regularly miss
Press & hold it powers off. Not just a quick press. Lol
Lol, that’s more technical sophistication than I gave Pimax credit for I guess
You can't get burn in on a Pimax 8K the screens aren't OLED.
But it still sounds nice to have a dedicated button for standby mode.
Edit: oh wow didn't see later comments. I never knew that was even possible.
I don't have personal experience with this, but I don't believe that LCD burn-in is permanent (unlike OLED). I've read that you can get rid of it by cycling through white and black images, leaving each one up for a while.
Here's the first article I found on it...https://www.techhive.com/article/3147408/displays/how-to-get-rid-of-image-burn-in-on-an-lcd-display.html
Here's a YouTube video that might fix it... "This video is a basic but effective way to help get rid of screen burn in or a stuck pixels on your screen."
I left my 8K on and running for more than 8 hours a few weeks ago with SteamVR dashboard on-screen. I have no power-savings enabled in SteamVR or my PC, so it was projecting the same image all the time.
No burn in at all, as far as I can see
is there no end to the depth of your testing
