This article highlights the two key differences between Varjo XR-3 vs Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition, so you can quickly distinguish between the two high-performance mixed reality headsets from Varjo.
The Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition is purpose-built for advanced mixed reality simulation training where superior visual quality is paramount. The new Focal Edition mixed reality headset features everything the Varjo XR-3 has but with improved stereo pass-through calibrated for better clarity between 30 cm to 80 cm (12” to 31”) from the headset.
Opposite from the Varjo XR-3, the new Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition is certified for security and classified operations in America, as the new headset is TAA/BAA-compliant (the Trade Agreements Act and the Buy America Act). In other words, where the XR-3 is not authorized, the Varjo XR-3 Focal Edition can be used by the US military and other militaries, as it is custom-built in Helsinki, Finland.
