At the Windows Mixed Reality event, Microsoft unlocked the next era of Mixed reality to empower every person and every organization on the planet. Alex Kipman had the privilege of sharing more about Microsoft’s mixed reality vision and announced a new Windows Mixed Reality headset from Samsung – the Samsung HMD Odyssey.
The Samsung HMD Odyssey is built to take you into the virtual worlds and battlegrounds where you can interact with your friends while vivid graphics and 360° spatial sound envelop you.
Powering the headset is a high-resolution dual AMOLED display (which Samsung is known for) bringing clearer graphics for a more immersive environment. It is also the only headset to offer a broader 110-degree field of vision.
Since it is Mixed Reality, Samsung has put built-in premium AKG headphones that deliver rich 360° spatial sound coming from every direction – detect every sound.
And, of course, the Samsung HMD Odyssey is the only MR headset to feature an integrated microphone array, so you can chat with friends and foes in the middle of the battleground. These noise-reducing microphones are built directly into the headset and even let you interact with Cortana using voice.
