DUBLIN, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Head Mounted Display (HMD) Market by Products, Components, Applications & Geography - Global Analysis and Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.


Head mounted displays (HMD's) are display systems which help the end user view texts, maps, images, schematics and other information that can be generated by a computer or any other electronic system. The main advantage of these head mounted displays compared to computer systems are that these are portable displays unlike a computer which cannot be carried from one place to the other.

Head Mounted Display (HMD) or wearable display can be a pair of goggles or a full helmet. In a head mounted display, the output peripheral places a small microdisplay in front of the eyes of the user for the user to perceive the image that is generated from a computer or any other electronic source. Most HMDs include a head tracker so that the system can respond to head movements. HMDs are available with day and night vision mode. Augmented reality can be incorporated in HMD.

Head mounted displays improve the overall display experience of the user because they offer both immersive and non-immersive displays. Various navigation and communication technologies like Global Positioning System (GPS) and Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) are used in HMD to improve the guidance and monitoring system.
