BOSTON, Dec. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rendever, the leading provider of virtual reality (VR) for seniors, today announces that Pico Interactive’s G2 4K Enterprise headset is now its hardware of choice. Pico’s VR headsets are designed with the enterprise in mind, allowing the G2 4K Enterprise to fit Rendever’s current needs and allow for further developments.

From senior living communities to healthcare and hospice organizations, the Rendever platform is being used to reduce depression and loneliness by fostering personal connections amongst populations where life has become limited. VR headsets in each Rendever system are networked, so participants can share synchronous immersive experiences together. Physical limitations are no longer a barrier, as seniors can check off bucket list items together, travel or revisit meaningful places and share stories, stay engaged with family members, and more.

“We are thrilled to work with Pico to provide high quality hardware for our senior living partners. The G2 4K Enterprise headset will not only support our current resident engagement platform, but also allow us to expand our offerings,” said Tom Neumann, Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer at Rendever. “The transition to Pico hardware has been seamless due to the unmatched flexibility of their enterprise offering, and will empower our engineering team to continuously improve our software and add to our suite of custom interactive applications.”

Pico’s G2 4K Enterprise headset features best-in-class 4K resolution, 101° field of view, a 16 MP single RGB camera and 128 GB storage. The all-PU facial interface and counterbalanced design allows for easy cleaning, bringing safety and comfort to seniors utilizing Rendever’s platform.

“We are excited to help Rendever best serve its clients, giving seniors a way to explore the world with their family and friends. Rendever’s mission to overcome social isolation is top of mind as we support their transition to the G2 4K Enterprise,” said Ennin Huang, Vice President of Design at Pico Interactive.

Rendever is already rolling out Pico’s headsets to senior living communities, such as Evergreen Home for Special Care and Go Ye Village.
