HTC announces Vive Pro with better specs for enterprise

HTC Vive comes to India

Remember when last week, HTC did a major tease featuring a new headset with better resolution than the previous models? The headset itself looks far less clunky than the original, and HTC has added a blue color to the key elements and the front display.

No release date or price has been given for the HTC Vive Pro, but we do know that the Vive Wireless Adaptor will arrive towards the latter half of 2018.

Pricing and availability of the Vive Pro price wasn't detailed. With the advent of 4K content and gaming hardware manufacturers beefing up their CPU and GPU line-ups for 4K gaming, there's a good chance that we might be looking at a 4K capable version of the HTC Vive.

Jordan Sirani is a freelance writer for IGN. It offers two OLED displays with a combined resolution of 2880x1600, which is a 78% increase over the 2160x1200 resolution of the standard Vive.

HTC did not mention if or whether the company would begin manufacturing improved HTC Vive controllers, nor whether they would work off of Valve's "Knuckles" spec for a new SteamVR controller.

In a blog post the company wrote: "The Vive Wireless Adaptor features Intel's WiGig technology and offers a premium VR wireless experience that operates in the interference-free 60Ghz band, which means lower latency and better performance". Other improvements are "integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier", dual microphones, and dual front facing cameras "designed to empower developer creativity", presumably with augmented reality applications.

In the new Vive Video experience, a curated selection of Vimeo content will be made available to browse and view in a highly optimized native VR experiences within Vive Video-compatible headsets.

HTC announced today at a press event ahead of this week's Consumer Electronics Show that it's launching a new browsing experience for its Viveport VR storefront.

VR enthusiasts are still the only people likely to buy their own headset, even after HTC and Facebook's Oculus dropped prices on their flagship models.

This afternoon HTC revealed the HTC Vive Pro, a next-level experience for virtual reality gamers. It's an upgrade over the original Vive that increases resolution, includes integrated audio, and more.
