VR UniBlock Develops Low Latency Wireless Technology Without Compression

VR Uniblock, a company that aims to create a universal hardware platform, has revealed its low latency wireless video transmission technology that works without ever compressing or decompressing the data.

High-end wireless head-mounted displays (HMDs) will be one of the next key breakthroughs for the virtual reality (VR) industry, and companies like TPCast and VR UniBlock are creating solutions to the issue. VR UniBlock’s system uses off the shelf components (nothing custom made), alongside an algorithm that enables the swift transmission of any data without impacting resolution or latency.

Using 60 GHz WiHD/WiGig protocols, the system has a reported latency of 3 ms which can then be lowered to 1 ms with ASIC hardware. It has a range of up to 50 feet (15 meters) and can support multiplayer functionality with multiple (4K/120Hz/36 Gygabytes per 1 second) users, again using ASIC hardware.

“We’re excited to introduce the prototype of our wireless video transmission system in the U.S. and worldwide markets,” said VR UniBlock founder Askar Khamidov in a statement. “We’re introducing our ground-breaking technology just as the market for head-mounted displays and virtual reality is heating up. As we take steps toward finding a universal wireless transmission solution, our technology—that doesn’t require data compression—is now a viable solution.”

VRFocus has reported on a number of wireless systems and ideas this year, not only do you have the aforementioned TPCast, there’s also the Nefes Data kitQuark VR’s HTC Vive prototype, and DisplayLink’s own wireless add-on.

As VR UniBlock continues development of its wireless platform VRFocus will bring you the latest updates.
