A VR headset company from Shanghai, DPVR, unveiled the DPVR Starlink solution built to enable teachers to facilitate guided training with VR headsets in classrooms. The technology synchronizes spectator headsets with the instructor’s view to ensure that they do not turn their focus away from the lesson.
The company built the Starlink solution to cut down on the cost of implementing VR training systems in schools. The system allows the teachers to run a classroom lecture in VR with a PC VR system while the students can attend the class from a standalone headset.
The students’ all-in-one VR headset, DPVR’s P1, is a Snapdragon XR2-based standalone device with a 4K display. In addition, the Starlink system allows casting the view of the PC headset wirelessly to up to 40 P1 headsets.
With the system in place, schools won’t just save money on hardware costs but also software costs because the teacher’s system is the only one that needs a software license. The rest of the students’ headsets are just viewers who don’t need the application to be installed locally.
“The biggest benefit, of course, is the cost savings, there’s no need for lots of computers in a room, and software licensing is cheaper too,” said Derek Liu, DPVR Vice President Worldwide Sales, and Marketing. “Starlink from DPVR is a great solution.”
DPVR headsets are mainly for sale in China, but the company sells its hardware worldwide to customers in over 100 countries.
