Khronos Announces VR Standards Initiative

The Khronos Group today announced a call for participation in a new initiative to define a cross-vendor, royalty-free, open standard for access to modern virtual reality (VR) devices.

The rapid growth of the virtual reality market has led to platform fragmentation, forcing VR applications and engines to be ported and customized to run on multiple VR runtimes, and requiring VR sensors and displays to be integrated with multiple driver interfaces. This fragmentation slows the widespread availability of compelling VR experiences, creating added expense for developers wishing to support multiple VR devices, and hindering the adoption of innovative user interface technologies.

Any company interested to participate is strongly encouraged to join Khronos for a voice and a vote in the development process. Design contributions from any member are welcome. Some of the Khronos member companies helping to get this initiative underway include AMD, ARM, Epic Games, Google, Intel, LunarG, NVIDIA, Oculus, Razer, Tobii, Valve and VeriSilicon. More information on this initiative and and how to join the Khronos Group is available at:
