LG Display develops AI to reduce VR latency

LG Display has developed an artificial intelligence-based high-resolution content generating technology for virtual reality that reduces latency and blurs.


LG Display, together with Sogang University, has developed artificial intelligence (AI) technology that reduces latency and blur in virtual reality (VR) content.

Head-mounted displays for VR are conventionally highly immersive, but latency and motion blur can cause dizziness. The problem is especially pronounced for higher-resolution displays that require more calculations.

LG's technology brings an algorithm that converts low-resolution videos to higher tones in real time. It has deep learning that allows use of only internal memory of the device to do so, instead of requiring additional external ones.

The company said it will reduce latency and blur delays by more than five times for VR devices while reducing energy consumption. Devices won't need expensive GPUs to realise VR as well, LG said.

LG and Sogang additionally developed a motor-powered device that measures latency and blur in VR headsets that mimics a human's optic view and neck movements.

Earlier this month, LG and Google also announced a new OLED display for VR.

Last week, LG Display also showed off a 77-inch transparent flexible OLED display to the public for the first time.
