LG Display has developed an artificial intelligence-based high-resolution content generating technology for virtual reality that reduces latency and blurs.
Workng together with the Sogang University, LG Display's solution quickly converts low-resolution content into higher resolution images, significantly cutting the delay between a user's motion and that motion being reflected in the display. Generally, the latency and motion blur in head-mounted displays can cause dizziness. The problem is especially pronounced for higher-resolution displays that require more calculations.
The company said the solution is made possible through deep-learning technology using internal memory chips, instead of requiring additional external ones.
The company said it will reduce latency and blur delays by more than five times for VR devices while reducing energy consumption. Devices won't need expensive GPUs to realise VR as well, LG said.
LG and Sogang additionally developed a motor-powered device that measures latency and blur in VR headsets that mimics a human's optic view and neck movements.
Earlier this month, LG and Google also announced a new OLED display for VR.
