The story

Premium enterprise headset maker Varjo is launching its portfolio in key markets in the Asia Pacific region.

Sales and direct shipping of headsets including XR-1 Developer Edition, VR-2 Pro and VR-2 are now available in Singapore, Israel, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand for enterprise users.

Varjo president and chief operating officer Timo Toikkanen said the current “extraordinary global circumstances” is accelerating the movement of industrial workflows into immersive environments.

“Our continued expansion into new territories allows us to accelerate adoption and deliver an exceptional, localised experience to customers around the world.”

“We’re seeing tremendous interest from leading enterprises who are looking to leverage VR/XR technologies for applications such as aviation training, design reviews and research, to name a few. Our continued expansion into new territories allows us to accelerate adoption and deliver an exceptional, localised experience to customers around the world.”

Varjo has also expanded its reseller programme, which now provides local, on-the-ground support in 40 countries.

Three new resellers—INNOSIMULATION (South Korea), StormFX (Australia and New Zealand), and Synergy (Israel)—have joined the network.

Varjo revealed that enterprise customers already using its devices include Volvo, FlightSafety and Siemens. They are using its tech to conduct virtual workforce training, collaborate remotely on the design and prototyping processes, and run academic, clinical and commercial research.

The Finnish headset maker introduced real-time chroma keying and marker tracking as early access features for its XR-1 Developer Edition headset last month.

Varjo said it’s the first company to deliver chroma keying—an industry-standard technique known as ‘green-screening’ and used in broadcasting and film—in real-time for MR devices. 

With marker tracking, professional users can instantly anchor any virtual objects to the real world using printable visual markers.

Together, these two features will allow Varjo’s enterprise customers to integrate the virtual and real, interact with photorealistic virtual content as they would in real life, and achieve accuracy and occlusion inside MR.
