Continuing the discussion on the production schedule…
This is a tipycal production schedule
July 2018 First industrial prototype
November 2018 Second industrial prototype (i.e. near final product)
December 2018 Tooling, molding and assembly lines
January 2019 Pre productions
March 2019 Mass production starts
May 2019 Delivery
I think we are at july 2018
Because this is another product every step after M1 (here is July) could go faster
But a lot depends on the target Pimax has. Who Knows!!!
“m1/m2 is just a name, the plan is always to start shipping when the team members are satisfied internally and testers give the greenlight as well.”
I try to explain now what i mean:
After V5 at CES Pimax strategy is changed for the better. I count 5 months Gen,feb,mar,apr,may to make M1
Pimax told us they have spent much money for new lens and this sounds promising.
The only issue in the speech is that M1 is a prototype. It’s not the final product
Question. After M1, has Pimax the budget to make a 90hz headset ?
xunshu listen carefully:
- if Pimax cut 90 hz all reviewers worsen the judgments of Pimax 8K.
YOU HAVE SEEN WHAT MEANS TO HAVE A BAD REVIEW. Do not make this error again.
- If Pimax announce the shipment of the headset without having gamepads, lighthouses and other accessories you are a Chinese company. This is very bad to tell for a company.
- The right time to make a roadshow is when you have pre-production
- For myself if you hurry up and you send to backers a Pimax 8k 80HZ VR headset and then at CES 2019 you have a Pimax 8K 90 Hz i am not glad with Pimax. I will think that my Pimax 8K is a pre-production. You must understand that pimax backers are hi-end gamers.
After M1 I think a PIMAX Production schedule with targets is a good idea
Every backer Could see if there is a delay or not in the project
But a production schedule give substance to the project
so please give a name and targets to " when the team members are satisfied internally and testers give the greenlight as well."
Good Work Pimax Team
