HTC Unveils New Higher-Resolution Vive Pro VR Headset, Wireless Adapter

HTC Vive comes to India HTC ViveHTC

Apart from that, the new HTC Vive Pro will bare two OLED displays, which makes it similar to the Vive Focus from the same company.

A sharper display makes the VR experience run a lot smoother, with low-resolution imagery often the cause for people getting sick or disoriented.

HTC say details on the Vive Pro's price and release "will be made available soon".

"Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wishlist since the technology was unveiled", said Frank Soqui, General Manager Virtual Reality Group at Intel Corporation.

In addition, HTC showed off the Vive Wireless Adaptor, which can hook onto either the original or Vive Pro and wirelessly connect to a nearby PC.

The headset also interestingly now features dual-front-facing cameras accessible to developers, who can presumably use them for inside-out tracking and mixed reality applications.

The company is unveiling the new Vive Pro, a new premium VR headset for gamers and enterprise customers. Vive Pro also features integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier to offer a heightened sense of presence and an overall richer sound. "This is a product for these most discerning customers", said Dan O'Brien, US GM of HTC Vive. It's a separate accessory to enable fully wireless VR, with interference-free 60GHz communication. The new portal features sample VR previews that give quick interactive glimpses into a game. It will be a part of the now existing Viveport Subscription model. Vive Video solves the discovery and acquisition problem for VR video content by delivering a large catalog of high quality streaming video directly to VR headsets.

It's CES 2018, the largest consumer electronic convention in the world, and naturally virtual reality (VR) has an ever growing part to play. On the current model, the headphones were only available as an add on. Timing and pricing wasn't divulged yet, but hopefully we'll see a price drop for the original Vive once the Pro is on the market. Both are available immediately.
