HTC unveils higher-resolution Vive Pro VR headset with built-in headphones
09 January, 2018, 00:39
HTC has announced a new version of the HTC Vive, dubbed the HTC Vive Pro, during CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The ecosystem HTC has built through partnerships with Steam and its own Viveport app store, combined with being able to boast the most accurate roomscale tracking system, has kept the Vive at the top of the heap so far.
Are you hoping the arrival of the Pro will signal a much-needed Vive price cut?
While the rival Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR headsets have both been trimmed significantly at various points over the last six months, the Vive has largely remained at its significantly higher RRP. However, the new headset was revealed on HTC's Chinese website, and there's no word on a western release at this time.
Jordan Sirani is a freelance writer for IGN. That's essentially the same as the resolution of the display used by the original HTC Vive, which delivers 2160×1200 for both eyes.
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. We know that it will default as a wired VR system, however, and we can nearly certainly confirm that it will not offer an improved field-of-view (FOV), thanks to the new resolution conforming to the original Vive's resolution ratio.
This week at the Consumer Electronics Show, the company announced the Vive Pro, a lighter-weight unit with integrated audio and a resolution increase to 2880 x 1600.
The HTC Vive Pro also comes equipped with a new head strap that's not too dissimilar from the revamped strap for the HTC Vive.
Along with potential inside-out tracking and augmented reality applications, HTC has also decided to make their device a bit freer by announcing their own wireless adapter for the HTC Vive, similar to the TPCast product.
This offers a quick way for users to check out games and other VR experiences without having to commit to purchasing or downloading it. In addition, the company debuted new improvements in how VR users discover, experience and acquire VR content through a radical redesign of Viveport VR and Vive Video. It offers wireless VR thanks to the implementation of Intel's WiGig technology, and it will ship in Q3 2018.
