Automatic Eye Position (AEP) allows any user to use the HoloLens 2 right away. The headset calibrates the users eye position automatically. The pervious method required a multistep manual process to calibrate. Now users can use the HoloLens right away. This is perfect for demonstrations, trainings, and one-off cases with several users. Companies will improve efficiency when they train employees without this tedious manual process. While AEP is prefect for example like training and one-off demonstrations. Microsoft recommends running the full calibration process for the most accurate tracking.

Microsoft has addressed this issue and “the result will be more color accuracy across the brightness spectrum”.

The third new feature will be a new reading mode for the HoloLens 2. The new reading mode will also improve the image quality. This will create an improved reading experience for users.
