Taking further steps in the world of VR, HTC has unveiled the upgraded version of the Vive VR headset, dubbed the HTC Vive Pro and the Vive Wireless Adaptor during the ongoing CES 2018.
Starting with the HTC Vive Pro, the new upgraded VR headset comes with two OLED displays with a combined screen resolution of 2,880 x 1,600 pixels, for improved and better display of VR content. The VR headset also comes with incorporated headphones with inbuilt microphone producing enhanced audio output. With a user-friendly design, the Vive Pro also comes with dual microphones with active noise cancellation and dual front-facing cameras.
The Vive Wireless Adaptor with Intel WiGig technology is touted to be the “first in the market with a truly wireless VR headset integration for both Vive and Vive Pro.” The wireless adaptor works on the interference-free 60GHz band for the better performance.
Frank Soqui, General Manager Virtual Reality Group at Intel Corporation said, “Wireless VR has been on nearly every VR user’s wishlist since the technology was unveiled. By collaborating with HTC to commercialize Intel’s WiGig technology, we will guarantee that wireless VR meets the most discerning quality bar for home users and business VR customers.”
Additionally, the HTC Viveport VR has also been improved for enhanced user experience with the interactive display of content (called the VR Previews) instead of the traditional 2D catalog.
