HTC has unveiled its all-new VR headset known as Vive Pro at CES 2018. The Vive Pro includes built-in headphones. HTC’s latest upgrade during the Vive virtual reality platform contains superior resolution and pixel density. HTC also revealed the Vive Adaptor, that permits Vive and Vive Pro users to touch base their VR headsets towards a PC without resorting to a cord. The business has never revealed any details in connection with the price and alternative of the HTC Vive Pro.
The Vive Pro sports dual-OLED displays inside of a resolution of 2880×1600 pixels combined, which is a 78 percent development of resolution in the current Vive, HTC claims. The head-mounted display also gets upgraded ergonomics, built-in audio support, and 2 front-facing cameras which will open avenues for augmented reality applications. The built-in headphones during the Vive Pro are operated by an integrated amplifier. HTC claims that the modern set up is more comfortable, due to the latest strap and low front weight.
Daniel O’Brian, Vive’s US General Manager, said inside a statement, “There’s an apparent need inside the VR industry for a premium VR experience with high-resolution display, integrated audio as well as best components you can get today in the headset.”
The Vive Wireless Adaptor has also been launched by HTC and claims it will end up being the first to promote by using a ‘truly wireless’ VR headset integration for Vive and Vive Pro. The Vive Wireless Adaptor comes with Intel’s WiGig technology. The adapter operates in the interference-free 60GHz band causing lower latency and performance. Frank Soqui, General Manager Virtual Reality Group at Intel Corporation, said inside of a release, “By collaborating with HTC to commercialise Intel’s WiGig technology, we are going to be certain that wireless VR meets probably the most discerning quality bar for home users and business VR customers.” HTC said the Vive Wireless Adaptor is going to be available globally inside third quarter this holiday season.
