The Wrap™ 1200VR supports standard 2D video out of the box plus 3D video for a broad assortment of games, simulators and other types of applications. A new generation head tracker, the Wrap Tracker 6TC with compass, is a
3-degree of freedom tracker with automatic drift compensation that offers the best ever, “Where you look is what you see.” experience.
With support for the latest side-by-side 3D video format, display resolution support of up to 1280 x 720, calibration software and legacy games support provided by the Vuzix VR Manager software, the Wrap 1200VR sets a new standard in virtual reality eyewear.
The Wrap 1200VR features 16:9 widescreen displays offering a 75-inch virtual display as seen from 10 feet (3m). Its twin WVGA LCD monitors support display resolutions of up to 1280 x 720 and provide a 35-degree diagonal field of view, allowing you to see more of your virtual worlds than ever before.
Wrap 1200VR virtual reality eyewear can be worn over many styles of prescription eyeglasses and left and right eye focal adjustment allows most eyeglass wearers to shed their spectacles. The Wrap 1200 series of video eyewear now includes IPD adjustment for varied eye separation requirements and the patented Vuzix AccuTilt® for achieving the optimum viewing angle and crystal clarity.
The world of technology can be complex and change often leaves prior technologies and software investments behind –not so with the Wrap 1200VR. The Wrap 1200VR supports the latest side-by-side 3D video format and a new generation head tracker that offers improved performance and accuracy. The included Vuzix VR Manager software, its Vuzix Extensions and Vuzix 3D video drivers all support these new technologies. Virtually all programs work with the Wrap 1200VR using 2D video and more than 100 existing applications already support its new 3D video and/or head tracking systems. A Vuzix Software Developer Kit (SDK) is available free of charge to assist software developers in quickly and easily adding native support for the Wrap 1200VR to their applications.
The Wrap 1200VR connects to virtually any Windows based video card, regardless of make or model. Windows 7, Vista and XP (32 and 64-bit versions) are all supported. If you wish to look beyond a Windows platform, optional interfaces will enable the Wrap 1200VR to connected to component video devices (i.e.: Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) and component media devices (i.e.: iPod touch, iPhone, DVD players and cable boxes) for video playback.
Each of us is different and those differences affect the visual quality and comfort of virtual reality systems lacking the unique customization options of the Wrap 1200VR. Even a millimeter difference in eye separation can affect display quality and different nose bridge shapes affect both comfort and display quality. The Wrap 1200VR is the only virtual reality system that addresses all of these factors, allowing you to experience the best video quality possible. IPD adjustment allows you to tune your video eyewear for your personal eye separation, an adjustable nose bridge adapts to your facial structure and Vuzix patented AccuTilt® enables the optimum viewing angle.
Never before has a virtual reality display system been this adaptable!
VR Manager 4 is a powerful resource for enabling and managing the virtual reality capabilities of your Vuzix VR eyewear. It ensures accurate head tracking, enables VR capabilities in games, and even empowers you to add VR features to your existing games library.
Virtual reality is a term that describes computer-simulated environments where you are able to step inside your game or simulation. Stereoscopic 3D, or 3D video, allows you to see your virtual world with depth and separation, just like objects in the real world. Head tracking enables your Vuzix eyewear to display your virtual world corresponding to your current direction of view – the ability to see where you are looking. Together these capabilities transform flat screen game playing into simulated worlds and your Vuzix VR eyewear provides The Way In®, allowing you to step into your virtual worlds.
VR Manager is divided into four components: Calibrator, Monitor, Creator, and Misc. Tools
Calibrator is a resource that enables you to calibrate the head tracker sensors to its location and surrounds magnetic influences that might affect its accuracy.
The calibration process is as simple as moving your eyewear through each of
its 3-axis of movement and pressing a couple of buttons.
Monitor is a resource that enables you to apply Extensions to games that did not originally come enabled with VR support. Many games and simulation programs do not come with built-in VR support. Vuzix has resolved this dilemma by developing Vuzix Extensions, a method of enabling head tracker and/or 3D video support to existing game titles.
Monitor provides a listing of these Extensions and allows you to link them to and enable them for the corresponding titles installed on your computer. VR Manager searches your computer for matching Extension and game sets making enabling VR support as simple as selecting the “Enable” command.
Creator, new to VR Manager 4, provides you with the ability to make your own Extensions so you control which of your games support head tracking and/or stereoscopic 3D video. This unique capability, the first of its kind, empowers you to select from a library of options and controls to enable VR support in virtually any game, DirectX or OpenGL based game or simulator application.
Once you have created an Extension, you can save it to make it available in Monitor or export it and share it with friends and fellow gamers through the Vuzix "VR Extension Exchange". Of course, you can also import Extensions downloaded from the VRB Extension Exchange and even modify them to suit your personal preference.
Misc. Tools is a section of VR Manager that you may never need to use, but it's nice to know it’s there, just in case.
Misc. Tools provides access to a number of troubleshooting tools including a stereoscopic 3D video test application, extensive technical documentation and a log file that can greatly assist Vuzix Customer Service, if their help and intervention is required.
