Head Mounted Displays for Entertainment and Gaming to Witness Higher Demand

Growing affordability of components such as micro displays, and increased applications of head mounted displays for fields such as medicine, military, gaming, and augmented reality among others are anticipated to boost the prospects of the head mounted display market for the years ahead.

What are some key demand-driving factors translating into effective adoption of helmet mounted/eye wear display devices?

With easy access to lightweight materials for helmet mounted displays (HMD), and increased adoption by military and healthcare professionals, these devices are anticipated to witness a strong rate of growth.

Military applications of security, training, monitoring, and simulations are increasing adoption of HMD devices in the field. Moreover, manufacturers are developing awareness programs about health hazards for prolonged use of wearable displays, or stereoscopic display, are anticipated to help users to utilize helmet mounted display devices in the long run.

On the other hand, the higher portability, smaller size, and lower weight of eye wear devices are anticipated to increase the demand for such wearable devices in the near future.

Throw some light on the technological advancements being made for efficient Head Mounted Displays.

Offering significant advantages to surgical, industrial, and military devices, the Ultra high pixel density display (UHPD) platform makes use of a proprietary red/green/blue organic light-emitting diode, which provides an active matrix that are ideal for virtual reality and augmented reality compatible headsets. Similarly, smart pixel IC (SPIC) has been developed by INT Tech as a board scale solution that allows the integrated functioning of multiple sensors on the rear pane of the display, which is based on thin film transistors. The technology allows for sensing fingerprints, proximity, eye tracking, and light generation, making it ideal for bio-sensory devices and integration through internet of things (IoT).

Moreover, the rising use of head mounted projection displays (HMPD), provide easier display corrections and improved depth perception owing the use of retro reflective material, occlusion optics, and side-mounted optics.

What is the future of head mounted displays in entertainment and gaming?

 The applications of head mounted display devices are anticipated to grow at a relatively faster rate in comparison to other fields in the near future owing to recent enhancements to high resolution displays, improvements to video capabilities, and 3D video display functionality, which is considered as the next stage in entertainment by the vast majority of end users.

On the other hand, such devices are still plagued by a number of disadvantages such as wide bezels, lack of compatibility for vertical integration, and side effects such as headaches and fatigue after prolonged use are keeping manufacturers from reaching their peak. When such problems are surmounted in the future, head mounted display devices are anticipated to make all conventional computer and console monitors completely obsolete.
