The Samsung HMD Odyssey+ deploys its cutting-edge display technology to fight irritating fixed-pattern noise, creating a perceived PPI of 1,233 PPI2 for an enhanced mixed reality experience.

Samsung's HMD Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality headset was already among the highest-end of its type, and the company is refining that head-mounted device with the Odyssey+.

The fine lines that separate pixels are easier to spot when your eyes are in close proximity to a display, such as when using a mixed reality or VR headset. Once you lose the feeling of actually being there, the whole illusion is compromised.

Samsung's Anti-SDE technology involves applying a grid to diffuse light coming from each pixel to replicate the picture to areas around each pixel. "This makes the spaces between pixels near impossible to see".

Samsung is starting the work week by announcing something of a refresh for its HMD Odyssey headset. Also, it will be available soon in countries such as South Korea, Hong Kong, China, and Brazil.

The Samsung HMD Odyssey+ integrates AKG's premium audio technology for full 3D sound and adds precision 6 Degrees Of Freedom (DOF) tracking via its bundled controllers.

Changes have been made to the design of the headset too with a wider nose guard now included (40mm up from 32mm) and an eye box that's now wider at 146mm compared to 138mm on the original.

"Samsung strives to develop meaningful innovations that deliver unique experiences to all consumers", said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

The new Samsung Odyssey+ features a number of improvements on the previous version, including an improved display and technology to reduce simulation sickness symptoms.
