HTC VIVE announced new hardware upgrades that deliver premium VR experiences to consumers and enterprises with the introduction of Vive Pro and Vive Wireless.
That's certainly the case with most of the virtual reality headsets we've seen for the past couple of years, with only mobile VR - the Gear VR and Google Daydream headsets - really escaping the wired fate. "Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wish list since the technology was unveiled", Frank Soqui, GM of the virtual reality group at Intel, said in a statement.
In addition to the display improvements, there are also some design changes in the Vive Pro that aim to allow users to quickly put on the headset and adjust it for maximum comfortability.
The headphones that for the HTC Vive were a separate purchase are now included as a standard with HTC Vive Pro. The new portal features sample VR previews that give quick interactive glimpses into a game. Still, if we're looking at 1,440 x 1,600 per eye just two years on from the initial HTC Vive announcement, it won't take too long for 4K to come along. Beyond improvements to the user interface, HTC is adding Vimeo videos to the platform.
The Vive Pro will be backwards compatible with existing Vive applications as well as the company's room-scale trackers.
