Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition: Visual Precision for Advanced Mixed Reality Training

Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition offers superior visual quality for advanced mixed reality simulation use cases where seeing small text and illustrations on physical instruments close-up is mission-critical.

Ultimate visual precision in mixed reality.

Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition

  • Optimized mixed reality camera components for seeing crucial dials and knobs close to the user in proper focus.
  • Enhanced security measures, with the ability to access the device offline and with full invisibility to radio frequency communications.
  • Fully TAA/BAA-compliant (the Trade Agreements Act and the Buy America Act), for deployments with special requirements.
  • All features of the standard Varjo XR-3, delivering the most immersive mixed reality experience ever with photorealistic visual fidelity.

Visual precision in mixed reality close up.

Seeing crucial dials and knobs in proper focus with content close to the user requires a closer focusing point.

The mixed reality camera system in the Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition is calibrated to provide improved image clarity in the 30 cm to 80 cm range (12” to 31”) from the headset, in comparison to a standard XR-3.

Highest-level security and privacy.

The XR-3 Focal Edition is built with the most demanding security environments in mind, across defense, intelligence, and critical infrastructure.

The headset is sold with a perpetual, offline license that enables operations in non-internet connected environments and does not require users to create accounts.

Furthermore, it can be delivered with radio frequency capability removed as required to operate in some classified environments.

Varjo is a true-to-life professional mixed reality headset. You can use hands naturally and intuitively with Ultraleap, the world’s most advanced hand tracking. It captures all the complexities of your natural hand movements to precisely replicate real-life interactions with either virtual or real contents. And with Varjo’s built-in eye tracking at 200 Hz powering foveated rendering, the headset shows what the user is directly looking at in full resolution. Similar to how the human eye works. You can also utilize the eye tracking data for sophisticated training analysis or research purposes.
XR Pilot Training

Specialized compliance needs covered.

The XR-3 Focal Edition is fully TAA/BAA-compliant (the Trade Agreements Act and the Buy America Act), with the devices being built custom-made at Varjo’s HQ in Helsinki, Finland.

TAA compliance is becoming an ever-increasing requirement enabling HMD-based solutions to be used for secure and classified operations.

All the industry-leading features of the standard model.

Offering photorealistic, true-to-life mixed reality combined with industry-leading capabilities and components found in a headset, the Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition includes everything available in the standard Varjo XR-3.

It is also compatible with all the same software applications and hardware devices—no extra customization is required.
