A simulated scene comparing the Crystal to a headset like the Meta Quest 2

The Pimax Crystal is the highest resolution headset we've ever had, featuring a 2880 x 2880 per eye resolution for an incredibly detailed image. This is especially ideal for racing simulators and flight simulators. Along with the headset and accessories, for tracking we've included two SteamVR 2.0 Base Stations, and for controllers we've included two of the popular Valve Index controllers.

Some of the games to play, please Contact Us for a full list.

To compare the resolution to other headsets, the Pimax Crystal offers approx. 8.3 megapixels per eye, a touch higher than the Varjo Aero, but much higher than the HP Reverb G2 which features 4.7 megapixels per eye. To get the most out of the headset, a powerful gaming PC is needed, but with the built-in 120hz eye tracking you're able to just render the parts you're looking at in the highest quality, keeping the hardware requirements reasonable. Pimax recommends an RTX 2070 or above.

With NZ Post's courier service, we can send the Varjo Aero to you anywhere in New Zealand to arrive in time for your rental start date. The time in transit isn't counted as part of your rental. Then on the date you've chosen to send it back, our included return label can be used and the parcel taken to any NZ Post Shop. More detailed information can also be seen in our how VR Rentals Work page.

The minimum system requirements for the headset include:

GPU: Pimax recommends a RTX RTX 2070 and above. For AMD, that would roughly be a radeon 5700 XT. The 3090Ti however is not compatible.

CPU: Intel i5-12500, AMD R7-3700X equivalent or greater

RAM: 16 GB or more

Video Output: Display Port 1.4 Output (Note: It doesn't work with HDMI)

USB Ports: 1x USB 3.0 or better, plus 1 x USB A 2.0 and above

Operating System: Windows 10 (64-bit) or Windows 11

Extra Requirements: You will need administrator access rights on your PC to use the VR headset. If you're using a work supplied PC, please check with your IT department that you have administrator rights.

Note: The Pimax Crystal is recommended for indoor use, and we cannot guarantee the tracking will work outdoors.

You need a minimum of 1 x 1 meter of free space to use the Aero, however some content will work best with a minimum play area of 2 x 1.5 meters. The two sensors need:

  • Higher than anyone who will be standing or sitting in the area
  • In opposite corners from each other, with clear light of sight to each other
  • No more than 7 meters apart
  • Each sensor has a 2.2 meter power cable which needs plugging in

We include clamps, which attach to the sensor, and clamp onto a flat surface up to about 5cm thick. If there's nowhere to attach those however, we also rent 1.8 meter tall light stands, but they do take up more floor space.

The minimum technical requirements for your PC are listed in the tab above, but also don't hesitate to Contact Us if you have any questions.
