A unique system for measuring HMD performance
OptoFidelity BUDDY is a comprehensive solution for virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR, AR, MR) head-mounted display (HMD) performance testing and calibration in both R&D and manufacturing lines.
BUDDY comes with an integrated vision module and 3 degrees of freedom, which ensures the best HMD performance, including motion-to-photon latency, content stability and pose-drifting.
The system is based on non-intrusive measurement comparing the changes in the virtual world to the robotics. Measurement performance is produced by OptoFidelity’s proprietary vision module and robotics platform, which enable unbeatable repeatability, time synchronization and position-based triggering.
With BUDDY you can even measure audio-to-video synchronization and so-called motion-to-audio-latency for spatial audio. All the frames from the HMD can be saved for later analysis up to 120Hz (or higher with smaller resolution/FOV)
OptoFidelity BUDDY provides future-proof results based on characterized measurement technology. When using its novel synchronization technology, consistent measurements are possible from both present and future display technologies. We have provided test systems and support for technologies like OLED and projector-based, holographic and light field displays.
