“Ovrvision Pro” Development Report on June 2015

We sincerely thank you for your support of Ovrvision Pro.
This is a development report as of June 2015 of Ovrvision Pro now under development for shipping of product in November 2015.

Currently the development is moving along quite smoothly. The behavior is almost complete in a hardware prototype, and the process of hardware design will move on to the product design. The development of firmware and the SDK will be started from July 2015, and the completion of all the product development process by the end of September 2015 is scheduled.

The price will be raised from the funding price USD 314.00 to a general selling price of USD 415.00 from the beginning of July 2015. If you are planning to purchase one, please apply as early as possible.

– The Requirement Specifications on Hardware –

1. The resolution and the frame rate of camera used for HMD
Resolution: 5184 x 1444 at 15 fps, 3840 x 1080 at 30 fps, 2560 x 720 at 60 fps, 1280 x 480 at 120 fps

2. Low latency (low delay)
The transmitting time between camera and PC will be set to 60 msec or shorter.

3. Synchronization of both eyes
Acquire two images at the same time for prevention of any lag between both eyes.

4. Compliance with the dynamic range test (Better performance for darkness and the improved whiteout)
The visibility at a dark place will be secured.

5. General purpose interface
An interface (GPIO) directly connected with a USB controller will be loaded.

– Development Status –

1, The resolution and frame rate of the camera compatible with HMD (The resolution is indicated as the total of both eyes.)
Test completion status: 5120 x 1460 at 15 fps, 3840 x 1080 at 30 fps, 2560 x 800 at 60 fps, 1280 x 480 at 90 fps

Movie (2560 x 800 at 60 fps, Latency 50 msec):

2. Low Latency (low delay)
Recorded the time around 50 msec for transmission between camera and PC (at 60 fps), but it may be delayed depending on the type of process.

3. Synchronization of both eyes
It was planned to load the FPGA or ASIC, but it could be brought to realization with CPU firmware in the USB controller and is contributing to the low latency and energy saving.
Thanks to the exclusion of FPGA and ASIC, a separate power source such as an AC adapter is not required.
In addition, the slight strain between the upper and lower part of camera due to the rolling shutter specification will be eliminated by the rate of 60 fps and by correction at the SDK side.

4. Dynamic range test (Better performance for darkness and the improved whiteout)
The camera exposure test in comparison with Ovrvision1.
The use of a wider range camera chip has provided a much better visibility in a dark place.

5. General purpose interface
The loaded is a GPIO that can directly access the CPU inside the USB controller. A camera control interlocked with the strobe light such as the shooting of an image at the timing of signal input from GPIO will be available. A provision of user data area is scheduled and it allows the storage of programming data and setup data inside the controller.

– Purchasing –

The price will be a general selling price of USD 415.00 from the beginning of July 2015.
Currently purchasable online from the website of OvrvisionPro at the funding price.
Please contact us for issuing of a quotation/invoice, and we accept payment by bank transfer for company/college customers.

The next report will be around the middle of September 2015, and the final stage of the product may appear.
Thank you for your continuous support in advance.
