Sony Corporation has recently announced the development of an innovative spatial content creation system. This cutting-edge technology is set to redefine the realm of 3D content creation, equipped with a high-quality XR head-mounted display and controllers specifically designed for interacting with 3D objects.
Key Specifications and Features
The system features a state-of-the-art XR head-mounted display, boasting large-size, high-definition 1.3-type OLED Microdisplays with 4K resolution. This display covers up to 96% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, ensuring detailed and realistic rendering of textures and human facial expressions. The device is powered by the Snapdragon® XR2+ Gen 2 Platform from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., enhancing image quality and providing seamless XR experiences.
In addition to the head-mounted display, the system includes a unique set of controllers. A ring controller allows for intuitive manipulation of objects in virtual space, while a pointing controller enables stable and accurate pointing. These controllers are designed for efficient operation, facilitating the creation and modification of 3D models in an Extended Reality (XR) environment.
Compatibility and Integration
Sony’s spatial content creation system is compatible with various 3D production software in the entertainment and industrial design fields. At launch, Sony is partnering with Siemens to integrate the system with Siemens Xcelerator open digital business platform, specifically the NX™ Immersive Designer software. This collaboration aims to bring immersive engineering capabilities to the manufacturing industry.
Design and Comfort
The head-mounted display is designed for comfort and stability, essential for extended creative use. It features a balanced center of gravity and comfortable pads that come into direct contact with the user’s head. Additionally, the flip-up mechanism of the display part allows for easy transition between physical and virtual spaces.
Sony’s spatial content creation system is not just a technological advancement; it’s a tool that empowers creators to transcend boundaries between the physical and virtual realms. It offers an intuitive and immersive tool for the entire process of spatial content creation, from modeling to review.
The system will be available later in 2024, with further details on specs, launch date, regions, pricing, sales channels, and software compatibility to be announced by Sony and its partners.
