Pimax Interview: Discussing 8K, 5K Plus And The Year Ahead

January 17, 2019 / Peter Graham

Earlier this week VRFocus wrote a full hands-on of Pimax’s offerings at CES 2019, detailing what we thought of the 8K and 5K Plus headsets, as well as the eye-tracking and hand-tracking modules. The company was certainly at the show to impress, with a much larger stand than the previous year, plus there was the new US Head of Operations to talk to, Kevin Henderson.With so much on display at CES 2019 Henderson had quite a bit to discuss, mainly focusing on an area both Pimax and consumers feel is important, logistics. Having originally started as a highly successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign, the company has a lot of backers to satisfy (just under 6,000 in total), concentrating on upping production to get those orders fulfilled. He notes several figures, claiming producing is at 200 units per day and climbing, while 135 units are being shipped per day, so Henderson expects most backers to get their headsets ‘pretty quick’.
