The promise of virtual reality has excited us for decades. VR provides the ultimate level of immersion, creating a sense of physical presence in real or imagined worlds. VR accomplishes this by placing high emphasis on the 3 pillars of immersion—visual quality, sound quality, and intuitive interaction—to stimulate our human senses with realistic feedback. Making this happen seamlessly in a mobile wearable device is not easy, but Qualcomm Technologies is making it possible today through leading mobile technologies.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • The unprecedented experiences and unlimited possibilities that VR will offer
  • Why the time is right for VR and how the ecosystem is aligning to make it happen
  • The extreme requirements for creating truly immersive VR experiences on mobile devices
  • Why Qualcomm Technologies is uniquely positioned to lead in VR, and how Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor will meet the extreme VR requirements

Who should attend?

OEMs, developers, independent software vendors, independent hardware vendors, engineers, product managers, industry analysts, and bloggers that are interested in VR.
