HTC Announces VIVE Pro And VIVE Wireless Adapter, Redesigns VIVEPORT VR And VIVE Video

The Vive Pro and Vive Wireless Adapter from HTC are improving the VR experience with higher resolution and the removal of wires.

Announced today during CES, the Vive Pro has a combined resolution of 2880 x 1600 using dual OLED screens, a "78% increase in resolution" over the current generation HTC Vive headset.

The Vive Wireless Adapter works with both the Vive and the Vive Pro, and uses Intel's WiGig wireless technology. It promises low "latency and better performance" using the 60Ghz wireless band.

Other improvements to the headset include "dual microphones with active noise cancellation," as well as a set of front-facing cameras "designed to empower developer creativity." The new headset also has a redesigned strap built around "enhanced ergonomics."

Last week HTC hinted at the announcement of an improved HTC Vive design. HTC also announced Viveport VR, a new platform for VR content discovery, as well as a VR movie partnership with Vimeo.

The Vive Wireless Adapter will be available in the third quarter of this year, while no release window was given for the Vive Pro headset.
