HTC Vive Pro revealed at CES 2018, higher resolution and integrated headphones

HTC Will Be Sharing Important Resolution Updates For The Vive Display At CES 2018

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. O'Brien said that the Vive Pro will be available as an upgrade version to existing Vive users this quarter, with a full commercial launch planned for later this year. We have yet to get hands-on experience with either the Vive Pro or the Vive Wireless adapter, but we have a demo appointment tomorrow, so keep checking PC Perspective for our updated impressions of the next generation of VR!

HTC's Vive Pro is also backwards compatible with both 1.0 and 2.0 SteamVR tracking, and you can use up to four base stations for room tracking on the Vive Pro.

The original HTC Vive stays on sale. The Vive Pro's headstrap includes a sizing dial so the headset is a lot more balanced, and it hopefully won't feel too top heavy at the front.

HTC has unveiled what's next for its PC virtual reality platform, Vive. Designed for VR enthusiasts, the HTC Vive Pro utilises dual OLED displays to ensure high contrast and pin-sharp images with text that's actually readable.

HTC has interestingly integrated two cameras in front of the headset that developers will be able to use to power augmented reality experiences, although details on that will be revealed closer to the release.


The new headset will also come with integrated headphones, and is created to be lighter and more comfortable than the existing Vive headset.

Finally, HTC has released a new update for the Vive Video app. The new portal features sample VR previews that give quick interactive glimpses into a game. To make choosing for new experiences easier, Viveport is offering consumers a VR preview mode - a bit like a trailer for virtual reality, if you will.

While it keeps the same shape as the basic Vive, the Pro comes in a new blue shell and, more importantly, has built-in headphones, dual mics and an amplifier, promising to offer some nice 3D spatial audio. Available in the second half of 2018, the adaptor features Intel's WiGig technology and operates in the interference-free 60Ghz band. The system even works in environments with multiple Vive users in the same space.

The new adapter will be shipping in Q3, with no price announced.
