Varjo – The leading VR professionals.
Solving the hard AR problem.
“We were thinking of who could help us with the prototype of the headset. We had a tight schedule, and Treon was up for taking the challenge. We could tell that they share the same passion that we have for the job. Their efficiency was also important to us”, Juha Pänkälä, Electronic Engineer at Varjo explains.
According to Treon’s Chief Engineer Jari Toivanen, designing a circuit board for such an advanced product is an immense challenge. Everything starts from mutual trust between the partners. Varjo’s and Treon’s similar working cultures and backgrounds have been a significant benefit in enabling the companies to share the workload in a very efficient way during these years of co-operation.

Implementation of the multiple display and camera interfaces was really a challenge both from schematics and layout implementation point of view. In addition, the development of USB-C alternate mode systems including power delivery is something new the team at Treon has learnt during the project.
”Working with Varjo has been very pleasant. It’s always a dynamic process when we are working on something new. Changes happen along the way, and everything happens fast. Good communication is the key to our success.”

Award winning technology.
Varjo XR-1 Developer Edition also won the 2019 Lumiere Award, which recognizes distinguished international achievements in the creation of immersive storytelling using advanced visual technologies such as VR, AR, and real-time rendering.
The latest feat of the collaboration between Varjo and Treon is the recently launched third generation of the headset, XR-3, which sets a new industry standard for visual fidelity across realities. During these past years, Varjo has grown to be the leading expert of virtual and mixed reality devices. The product development co-operation between Treon and Varjo goes on, particularly in the circuit board and electronic design.
"What started as a collaboration to build the prototype for XR-1 has now developed to a long partnership that has made already the third generation of the headset, XR-3, possible."
