DisplayLink Launches New Wireless Virtual Reality Branding and Reference Designs for Wireless 60GHz VR Headsets

DisplayLink®, the leading provider of USB graphics technology, today launched their new DisplayLink XR branding and reference designs for 60GHz ultra low-latency wireless virtual reality headset solutions at Mobile World Barcelona, 2017.

Following the huge interest and resounding success of a wireless VR concept showcased last month at CES 2017, DisplayLink is proud to announce new branding for their virtual reality solutions and the launch of comprehensive reference designs for both wireless VR PCB and Headset Adaptors. These solutions leverage silicon with performance to scale over the next two VR headset resolution nodes with immediate availability.

“It felt like the world came to see us at CES and the feedback was electric,” said John Cummins, SVP Sales and Marketing. “Shortly after our first public demo a month ago, we’re proud to now launch reference designs for wireless VR at Mobile World Congress. These implementations include DisplayLink silicon, software, and 60GHz wireless enabling VR Headset OEMs to deliver solutions that fulfill the promise of totally immersive cable-free VR for commercial and gaming applications.”

“Virtual Reality is taking the world by storm right now and DisplayLink is uniquely positioned to deliver solutions that can be fitted to exiting headsets or integrated into emerging designs,” said Graham O’Keeffe, CEO and Chairman of DisplayLink. “We’re leveraging proven and scalable technology already used by millions of users to drive retina resolution displays, and adding new techniques to further reduce latency. This is a very exciting time for us and the industry, and I’m confident the forthcoming solutions from DisplayLink can rapidly propel wireless VR adoption.”

The new branding spearheads the announcement of comprehensive reference designs for partners to directly integrate into headsets and wireless VR adaptors. From enclosure designs and PCBs, through to software/firmware, DisplayLink XR reference designs enable a complete end-to-end solution for OEMs.
