HTC announces the new improved HTC Vive Pro, 3D Audio and more

HTC Vive Pro revealed

HTC is sharpening its view of virtual reality. "Vive Pro offers an immediate upgrade for both VR enthusiasts and enterprises that want to utilise the best VR experience".

HTC said Vive Pro will be available to existing customers in Q1 2018, and a developer version will be available after.

Viveport is also coming as a VR experience to the Vive, letting users browse and purchase products from the store from within their Vive headset. The Wireless Adapter will work with the original Vive and Vive Pro and will be available this summer. While VR, which transports you to a digital world through a special headset, has attracted heavy hitters like Facebook, Google and Samsung, consumers have been slow to embrace the technology. The headset is compatible with exiting SteamVR base stations.

HTC also announced a wireless component to this equation for both the HTC Vive and HTC Vive Pro.

"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. The adapter uses Intel's WiGig technology in the 60 GHz spectrum for low-latency connectivity. It didn't disclose the pricing.

The original HTC Vive stays on sale. This device is the premium experience missing from the VR market today - up to the next level in every way.

The Pro headset also features built-in high-performance headphones with an in-line amplifier, a new head strap with a sizing dial, dual microphones with active noise cancellation, and dual front-facing cameras created to empower developer creativity.

HTC's update to its VR platform comes at an important time for the VR landscape.

Details on Vive Pro availability and price will be made available soon.

Indeed, HTC says it is a 78 per cent increase in clarity - users will be able to easily read text when experiencing virtual reality. The new portal features sample VR previews that give quick interactive glimpses into a game.

HTC have announced a big new revision to their VR display. Beyond improvements to the user interface, HTC is adding Vimeo videos to the platform. Where before there was one, now there are two front-facing cameras.
