SAN JOSE, California, April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Pimax, a leading innovator in the Virtual Reality sector, has announced two new high-end VR headsets at its Frontier 2024 event, held this Monday on YouTube .

The Crystal Super is an ultra-high-end headset, with 29.5 million pixels and the world's first switchable optical engine, allowing users to switch between QLED and micro-OLED panels. The Crystal Light offers the same 16.6 million pixels as the Pimax Crystal, but is much more affordable, starting at $699. Additionally, Pimax introduced the 60G Airlink module, which leverages WiGig technology to enable true high-fidelity wireless PCVR.

The Crystal Super represents a substantial leap over the highly successful Crystal, thanks to its higher pixel count, allowing for a much larger field of view (FOV) and higher pixels per degree (PPD) simultaneously.

In addition to FOV and PPD, the choice of displays plays a vital role in the user experience. Both QLED and micro-OLED offer different benefits, and Crystal Super allows users to choose between the two or opt for both. This flexibility is due to the world's first replaceable optical engine system invented by Pimax, which combines the screens and lenses into a single removable module.

Pimax Crystal Super starts at US$1,799 (excluding VAT) and will be available in the fourth quarter.

The Crystal Light is a streamlined iteration of the Pimax Crystal, maintaining the core specs that underpinned the Crystal's success and removing less essential features for PCVR. These adjustments have significantly reduced costs and weight by 30%. This allows Pimax to position the Crystal Light at a starting price of $699, offering unmatched value in its category.

The Crystal Light is available for pre-order now and will ship in May.

Pimax has also clarified that it will continue developing the Pimax Crystal, designed from the beginning as a high-end wireless PCVR headset. This requires extremely wide bandwidth and highly efficient utilization, necessitating the XR2 chip and battery, which have been integral parts of the Crystal.

To complete the wireless solution, an additional set of hardware is introduced, the 60G Airlink from Pimax. Thanks to Wigig technology, Pimax's 60G Airlink offers significantly greater bandwidth than conventional WiFi.

The Airlink 60G is priced at US$299 and will be ready to ship later this year.
