The cinemizer OLED from ZEISS now has headtracker support from the CryENGINE gaming platform

CryENGINE supports an additional third axis of rotation and ultra low latency feedback

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Oct. 1, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Total 3D Solutions, the North American Business Partner for ZEISS Multimedia, makers of the cinemizer OLED, announced the optional headtracker attachment from ZEISS is now supported by Crytek in version 3.5 of CryENGINE, which is available now. This support offers an improved experience for first person gaming, plus full three-axis rotation, where previously only two were possible.


The ground-breaking CryENGINE 3 will utilize data from the headtracker to pan the view up, down, left and right, as is possible with mouse controlled games. In addition, users will be able to tilt their head and the horizon will remain level, adding a great degree of realism, and will give a far better feeling of being there while gaming. The immersive experience can be further enhanced by using the cinemizer OLED in 3D mode.

CryENGINE is the basis for a number of highly acclaimed games on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Both the commercial and non-commercial version of CryENGINE will include support for the headtracker SDK. The addition of headtracker support will see many future games working with the cinemizer OLED and headtracker on all platforms, including the forthcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The inclusion of the SDK enables developers to directly access the raw data and quaternions of the headtracker, which then can be used for programming. The benefits of the SDK include access to an additional axis of rotation (viewing axis - roll), lower latency times and the availability of absolute rotational data. The low latency times are critical to match the viewed scene with the head movement without noticeable lag. This delivers a more believable, immersive and realistic experience.

Franz Troppenhagen, Product Manager for ZEISS Multimedia's cinemizer OLED said, "It is a great benefit to have full driver support. The combination of the CryENGINE's incredible graphics performance, ultra-low latency headtracker data and the cinemizer OLED head-mounted display offers an immersive 3D gaming experience at a level that has not been possible anywhere until now."
