Samsung today announced the launch of a new HMD Odyssey+ VR Headset that allows you to experience immersive experiences through the Windows Mixed Reality Platform.
It comes with Anti-Screen Door Effect (Anti-SDE) Display technology that “solves SDE by applying a grid that diffuses the light coming from each pixel and replicating the picture to areas around each pixel,” the company said.
“Samsung strives to develop meaningful innovations that deliver unique experiences to all consumers,” said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “With industry-leading display technology and an enhanced, premium design, the new Samsung HMD Odyssey+ offers new levels of immersion, improving upon its already brilliant display resolution for a consumer immersive headset”
