AjnaLens unveils ‘AjnaHPSC’ solution for XR streaming

AjnaLens an Indian company, known for its groundbreaking work in extended reality technology (XR), showcased its latest XR advancement at the 2024 Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2024. The company unveiled ‘AjnaHPSC’ (High Performance Spatial Computing), an XR streaming solution that they claim is a profound leap forward in XR technology, the biggest in a decade.

AjnaHPSC, as stated by AjnaLens, is a groundbreaking advancement in XR technology. It enables developers to design detailed XR content for headsets that do not possess the necessary computational capabilities to showcase such content. Consequently, users can immerse themselves in incredibly lifelike XR experiences without being physically connected to any device.

There are various challenges associated with delivering high-quality content through XR devices to provide a smooth and immersive experience.

  • Bandwidth Requirements: Streaming high-quality XR content requires significant bandwidth. There is a need to create an adaptive streaming and advanced compression and decompression algorithm;
  • Latency: Even minor delays in content can cause motion sickness. Achieving low latency is challenging when content needs to be rendered, encoded, transmitted and decoded before being displayed, all within a second;
  • Quality of Experience: Balancing the trade-off between video quality and bandwidth consumption is crucial in creating high-quality XR content using Ray Tracing and Path Tracing. It is essential to optimize streaming experiences to prevent pixelation.
  • Interactivity and Real-Time Rendering: XR content involves real-time interactions and dynamic rendering based on user inputs. Streaming high-end VR content requires the delivery of pre-rendered scenes, and the synchronization of interactive elements in real-time.

AjnaLens is focused on directly addressing several major challenges in order to enable high-quality content streaming on XR devices with limited computational capabilities.

Users can experience real time ray tracing and path tracing with AjnaHPSC on the AjnaVidya ecosystem of devices, such as the AjnaXR SE headset (pictured above). Developers can publish content on AjnaVidya and stream directly to AjnaXR headsets.

For instance, for bandwidth requirements, the company stated that its advanced streaming algorithm and techniques help to mitigate bandwidth constraints, enabling a more seamless delivery of XR content. AjnaHPSC is also capable of achieving ultra-low latency, according to the company, minimizing the delay between user actions and visual feedback.

For enhanced realism, AjnaHPSC allows XR developers to deliver highly immersive experiences by simulating spatial interactions, with dynamic lighting effects on standalone devices. For large-scale simulations XR developers can incorporate advanced features such as accurate physics-based scenarios, which open new avenues for applications in fields like healthcare training.

Furthermore, AjnaHPSC provides developers with the capability to generate streamable content on independent devices, aiding in monetizing their creations and enhancing accessibility. When it comes to scalability, the company ensures that its AjnaHPSC architectures are specifically designed to efficiently scale, allowing the depiction of intricate scenes with high-resolution textures, even on devices with limited resources.

AjnaLens added that as AjnaHPSC technologies continue to evolve, it expects even more advancements, including improved graphics rendering, enhanced spatial audio and more. The company stated in an announcement: “AjnaHPSC marks a watershed moment in XR technology, poised to unleash a wave of innovation and redefine the possibilities of virtual reality. As AjnaLens continues to push the boundaries of spatial computing, the future of XR has never looked brighter.”
