RealWear unveils next generation assisted reality headset with new HyperDisplay

To kick off 2023, RealWear has unveiled its latest development the RealWear Navigator 520 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Here, RealWear builds on the industry-proven platform of the Navigator 500, but significantly expands and optimizes the screen functionality. The so-called "HyperDisplay" provides a larger, sharper and clearer image for industrial users.

What are the new features of the HyperDisplay?

The introduced HyperDisplay replaces the current Core Display and offers a 20% larger display with twice the number of pixels (HD - 720p). Furthermore, the adjustability to the eye has been optimized so that the display can now be further away, but the content can still be recognized without problems.

Thanks to further design improvements on the support arm as well as on the display, time-consuming adjustment and set-up work has been reduced to a minimum or even eliminated, so that the onboarding process for new users has been simplified. This means that even employees who do not have day-to-day contact with the device can now start working immediately.

Optimizing usability is a big aspect for RealWear, so developers can also take advantage of the larger screen area to present information in a better and easier-to-understand way. This allows solutions like ADTANCE Workflow to make content even clearer and easier to view.

Despite larger display - hardly any changes to the housing

The housing as well as the support arm have only been minimally enlarged, but provide a significantly better screen with HD resolution. Thanks to the four built-in optical lenses, it doesn't impair the user's view of the situation and surroundings, allowing him to perceive everything without restrictions.

The possibility to increase the eye relief makes it even easier for the user to use e.g. glasses in combination with the device without the display having to fit tightly. In combination with the larger display, content can now be perceived and read sharply from a much greater distance. This also means that content does not disappear from the field of vision during movements and less readjustment is required when the device moves or vibrates during work.

The RealWear Navigator 520 incorporates a revolutionary modular platform that is capable of being adapted to any use case. For example, the camera module can be changed, allowing the user to choose between a thermal imaging camera and a 48-megapixel camera. The battery is hot-swappable and connectivity is possible almost everywhere thanks to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an optional 4G modem. Meanwhile, the user interface includes 23 languages and dialects, as well as a patented noise reduction feature.
