Assisted reality headset by RealWear has bigger, sharper display

Designed for frontline professionals, the RealWear Navigator 520 includes a new HyperDisplay which has a big, sharp display for fully hands-free, rugged, head-mounted wearable computer use.

The rugged assisted reality headset builds upon the features in RealWear Navigator 500, but adds a redesigned viewing system, the HyperDisplay, offering a bigger, sharper and bolder image for enhanced “viewability” for the user who wishes to use the device for expanded use cases.

The HyperDisplay swaps out the Core Display in standard definition (SD) found in RealWear Navigator 500, offering a 20 per cent larger high definition (HD) screen in 720p with twice the pixels. There is also an eye box that is five times larger and improved eye relief (the maximum distance your eye can be from the display to view the content easily), said RealWear.

RealWear said the Navigator 520 is “a compelling offering for these moments where every minute of productivity and efficiency must count toward the bottom line.”

It improves individual and team productivity, allowing each frontline professional to do more with less time or support.

The modular platform has an upgradeable 48Mpixel camera system, a hot-swappable battery, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an optional 4G modem. The user interface includes patented noise-cancellation, with support in 23 languages and dialects. 

RealWear has more than 200 optimised partner apps for remote collaboration, workflow and computer vision.

RealWear Navigator 520 is available and ships today through all authorised local RealWear resellers.
