Vicon Datastream SDK 1.8 adds support for a new API for obtaining data in applications where low latency is of prime importance. Although Vicon Tracker produces data with the lowest possible latency, game engines add latency before the image gets to the eyes in an HMD and this can impact the sense of immersion. Vicon Datastream SDK 1.8 provides a new API for obtaining data in applications where reducing apparent latency is key, in particular location-based VR and VR-gaming experiences, by correcting for the delays introduced when the engine renders the image to the VR headset.
