HTC announces beefed up VR headset for enterprises


The VR headset you see in the image at the top of this post is the Vive Pro - an upgraded head-mounted display from HTC featuring dual-OLED displays with a combined resolution of 2880 x 1600, a redesigned headstrap and integrated headphones with a built-in amplifier. Hence the desire HTC to actively develop this direction, eliminating the revealed shortcomings and gradually improving the technical part of a proprietary VR headset. If you ask me, there's merit to the immersive experience of VR in certain situations, but the wider and easier adoption will be for AR when it's commoditized.

Viveport's president, Rikard Steiber told his CES audience that he expected the number of experiences available on the platform to rise from 2,000 to 3,000 by the end of 2018.

The timing of release and cost of the virtual reality helmet HTC Vive Pro remained without publicity by officials. "Vive Pro offers an immediate upgrade for both VR enthusiasts and enterprises that want to utilize the best VR experience".

Joe Martin, founder and CEO of tech firm Snatch, said the company's decision to launch a higher-resolution Vive headset "places the weight on user experience first". Despite not being as graphically pleasing as gaming on a standard monitor, the higher resolutions of the Vive Pro VR should close the gap in graphics. The Vive Wireless Adaptor is HTC's first attempt at embracing a cord-less future for VR and is ready to ship to customers worldwide in sometime in Q3 this year. At CES 2018, the company updated their VIVE VR headset by announcing a Pro version. This is no flawless 2nd generation solution to the lingering problem that plagues current generation VR known as the screen door effect, but this is most likely the best we can expect while still keeping VR runnable on modern systems. You can even get a TPCast Wireless Adapter for the Oculus Rift now.

Mr Blau told the that much of the hype around virtual reality devices had meant that the technology sometimes failed to live up to people's expectations - something he believes has impacted of VR hardware. Those who worry that going wireless may introduce some connection issues need not fret too much as the Wireless Adaptor has been advertised to reduce the latency for the VR headset since it uses WiGig technology that runs on a 60 gigahertz (GHz) band.

This will be called the Vive Wireless Adaptor and will provide a better movement range for the owners since it will no longer be attached.
