Starbreeze AB and Acer Inc. have announced a new partnership for the StarVR Virtual Reality Head-Mounted Display.
The partnership will see the two companies cooperate on the design, manufacturing, promotion, marketing, and sales of the StarVR HMD.
“Since our launch in June 2015, we have had an amazing start with StarVR. By partnering with Acer we shift gears yet again to firmly position us as the leader in top-end VR experiences. Acer is an excellent, experienced and prominent hardware partner that will accelerate us in realizing and producing a high-definition, high-fidelity VR headset,” Bo Andersson Klint, Starbreeze CEO, said. “We?ve been working with a clear roadmap for our VR strategy from day one, and are now about to realize one of the first major collaborations we set out to achieve. The future for StarVR is now set and extremely exciting.”
“Acer is thrilled to join forces with Starbreeze in bringing the StarVR head-mounted display to the market,? added Jason Chen, Acer Corporate President and CEO. “We are devoting R&D resources across multiple aspects of the VR ecosystem for a coherent and high-quality experience, while just last month Acer announced powerful desktops and notebooks fully-ready for StarVR. Starbreeze and Acer share the same goal of delivering best-in-class VR applications, and we look forward to unlocking new VR possibilities together with this partnership.”
Starbreeze announced StarVR at E3 2015, following the acquisition of French company Infinite Eye. The StarVR is a high-end enthusiast virtual reality headset that will offer a higher resolution and a bigger field-of-view than its competitors.
