PATCH 1.1 - 1.1.X
The next time you turn on your Vortx unit you will automatically get Patch 1.01. Since launch we have spent a lot of time reading other’s thoughts on Vortx, listening to feedback from our users, and playing as many games as time allows. Our goal remains to create the best possible product, so that you can really feel the action in your games and media. To that end we are pleased to announce some upgrades going live this November, free to all Vortx owners.
ALGORITHM IMPROVEMENTS (HEAT)
Improved accuracy for tracking and triggering fire and heat source via:
--> Computer Vision - We’ve integrated improved heat recognition and source tracking algorithms, using complex computer vision techniques.
--> Machine Learning - We’ve also added an initial machine learning core. (More on that in future updates)
Currently the EX Algorithm uses probabilistic equations to determine whether a hot zone is present on-screen. Using computer vision and machine learning, we now further refine these hot zones, and follow them around the screen. This improves triggering and mis-triggering immediately - the addition serves as a framework for future development by providing a significant path to improved accuracy across all media and inputs. Greater immersion, improved presence - more heat when it makes sense, and less when it doesn’t.
Triggering in menus has also been reduced, as well as triggering in already warm environments - preserving scene dynamics and utilizing Vortx in a way that prevents us from overwhelming the user with heat.
