Should Pimax release an 4KX?


#21

But wouldn’t that be something the PC can do? Upscaling in the headset is only necessary when cable bandwith can’t handle native 4K


#22

The upscaler would be good to increase gpu compatibility.

More Gpus that can run it the more market.

Plus the new bridge chips have the scaler built in.


#23

I’m not sure anymore what a bridge chip does now. It splits the signal to drive two panels, right?


#24

Look up Analogix anx7538/39. They have scaler built in.

The bridge chip allows mipi displays to be connected to other inputs. But yes it does in dual display setup bridge 2 displays.

Could be just as easy as adding a 100-110 degree mode in the Pimax, turning the borders black, like watching a 4:3 video on a 16:9 screen… :slight_smile:

A good QHD phone fitted in a cheap chinese VR cardboard headset would be a cheap way to watch hq movies, why spend 399 for a 4K full headset ?..


#26

But then it’s still gonna cost 600 - 700$
Why not offer an cheaper option 300 - 400$ with full 4k support ?

Maybe they already have a vive and just want a higher fidelity picture but don’t want to spend more than 500$ ?
