One of the highlights of this all-in-one VR headset is the use of interchangeable lenses in order to provide better clarity.


Pimax (Chinese:小派科技) recently held its first launch event of 2022: the Pimax Crystal Launch Event and unveiled the first product of the Reality series, the Pimax Crystal QLED.

Founded in 2015, Pimax is a VR hardware manufacturer that integrates product R&D, production and sales, with a series of products such as Xiaopai 8K and Xiaopai 5K, focusing on high-performance PC VR headsets.

The most significant feature of this product (Pimax Crystal QLED) is that it is the first dual-mode all-in-one to achieve 8K pixel equivalents. In terms of display, the Crystal screen can reach a horizontal subscale of 5760 pixels and a vertical resolution of 2880 pixels. It has the same pixel total as the Pimax 8K X, but by weighing the pixel density against the field of view, it achieves a higher pixel density than the 8K range.

In addition, this all-in-one VR headset also enables adjustable glasses diopter, perhaps allowing nearsighted users up to 700° to use the VR headset without the need to wear glasses.

Optically, Crystal uses a glass aspherical lens to achieve higher light transmission, further reducing stray light and achieving low distortion.

The lenses are coated with three coating processes: anti-blue light, dust proof and anti-reflective. This improves the durability, scratch resistance and vision protection of this product.

In terms of chip, Crystal is equipped with Qualcomm XR2 and Pimax's custom PCVR engine dual processor chip.

In terms of cameras, Crystal has four cameras and is capable of 6DOF tracking in wireless mode. It also has integrated eye tracking and automatic pupil distance adjustment.

For the sake of market penetration, the main sales position of Pimax is overseas, adopting a dual-channel model of To C + To B. To C focuses on high-end gaming and content players, while To B targets retail, industrial, education and other industries.
