With a resolution of 4,320 x 2,160 pixels at 90 Hz, an enlarged field of view of 114 degrees and a significantly larger “Seet Spot”, by making the VR content appear pin sharp, HP wants to set new standards. The cooperation with VALVE should not only contribute to this, but also and above all to the spatial sound.

The HP Reverb G2 has four tracking cameras instead of two, so it can keep an even better eye on the surroundings. The "Flashlight" function in the Mixed Reality Portal allows headsets to look through the cameras into the surroundings without having to take them off (this is also possible with the current headsets). The new overall package is to be rounded off by optimized comfort.

With the first generation of the Reverb, HP was aimed almost exclusively at business customers, the G2 is to be marketed to both business and private customers. Of course, one or the other fresh content should also be available for the latter.
