Rochester, NY -- FORTE Technologies, Inc., an international leader in the development of virtual reality products for the entertainment, educational and professional markets, announced today that its entire line of headgear peripherals will be compatible with NEC and VideoLogic's PowerVR graphics architecture. FORTE will take advantage of the PowerVR technology to provide its VFX family of fully immersive, virtual reality Head Mounted Displays with enhanced graphics, imaging and performance capabilities. Jointly developed by NEC and VideoLogic, the PowerVR architecture is a scalable 3-D graphics solution that brings an extremely high level of performance to graphics intensive applications.

"The NEC and VideoLogic PowerVR architecture represents a huge step forward in the development of integrated virtual reality solutions," said Marty Strayer, president and COO of FORTE Technologies. "Now that we are offering headgear products that are compatible with this technology, end-users will experience the most immersive, virtual reality available."

"The PowerVR 3D graphics architecture is uniquely positioned to drive a new standard for realism in head mounted display technology," said Robin Seaver, Director of Strategic Business Development/Multimedia Applications, of NEC Electronics Inc. "Head mounted display technologies ultimately require higher resolutions and frame rates than traditional displays, and PowerVR overcomes the memory bandwidth barriers to providing this type of 3D display quality in the consumer market."
