Case 4: Driving the Sensis high ef HMD

Return to index

The Sensis head mounted display consists of 8 displays, 4 per eye and independent displays in order to support stereoscopic propjection. As such the controller that comes with the device expects 8 VGA signals as input. This was achieved with two dual port graphics cards, each card drives one display from one port and three displays with the other port by employing a Matrox triple-head-2-go box. The result is a stereoscopic display with a wide peripheral vision at a resolution of 3200x600 pixels per eye (each display on the HMD is 800x600)..
