What exactly is “simulated reality” (SR)?

According to Dimenco, this is a new technology that falls between augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) and allows for a great deal of content discovery. Other wearable gadgets, such as 3D glasses, can be used.

When seen outside the “hitbox” of the huge 32-inch display, content intended for the SR is presented as it would be on any other conventional display of comparable size. However, once you are seated in the proper posture and distance from the screen, the built-in multi-camera system will begin tracking your eyes and location (including your hands) and will begin producing a 3D image from which a sled will fall.

The SR Pro display features a QUHD resolution of 7680 4320 (8K), a refresh rate of 60 Hz, and a brightness of 400 nits, which is sufficient for this type of resolution and refresh rate. According to the business, it supports 100 percent Adobe RGB, 100 percent sRGB, 100 percent Rec709, and 98 percent DCI-P3.

Dimenco’s asking price of $ 11,225 for this 8K display with exceptional color accuracy and 3D functionality without glasses is not overly overstated. Furthermore, because it is a completely new technology, its price is likely to plummet once it is ready for the typical customer.

Because the display can weigh up to 18 kg, it is not easily portable. For eye-tracking, the system employs an Intel RealSense D455 sensor and a Leap Motion Controller to engage the SR and display controls. To fully utilize this monitor and associated SR tools, your computer must have a 10th generation Intel i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or GeForce RTX 30 GPU.

When you activate SR, the display will present an entangled and connected left and right view, which will be displayed on the left or right eye by tracking the 3D location of the eyes using the D455 sensor. This technology enables you to genuinely “look” at the graphics on the screen and actively interact with them as they respond to your actions. This is made possible by sensors at the bottom of the 32-inch display, which track your hand movements. You may receive a spectacular 3D view by adjusting the viewing angle from left to right, up and down.

Dimenco is also collaborating with Acer to develop a line of laptops that can use SR technology on a lesser scale. The Concept D SpatialLabs Edition notebook, which was newly released, is the first of these. However, it should be noted that the higher the range of motion available, the larger the display with which the technology operates. As a result, when utilizing a 32-inch monitor, you can move and change viewpoints considerably more freely than when using a laptop.

Architects, automotive designers and urban planners, doctors, and VFX artists (3D / AR / VR) can all benefit from the technology. Dimenco’s image technology, in particular, is reported to function particularly well with stereoscopic lenses, such as the recently launched Canon RF 5.2 mm f / 2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens.
