HTC rolls out Viveport VR and Vive Video user interface updates


HTC teases new Vive VR headset with improved display ahead of CES 2018

This is described as a head-mounted display (HMD) upgrade "built for VR enthusiasts and enterprise users who want the best display and audio for their VR experiences". The Vive Pro will go on sale later this year, most likely at a premium but we're yet to find out an actual price.

In addition to the improved screens the HTC Vive Pro will also feature integrated speakers for the first time. We will update as we get more details.

This we do have a rough release date for, with worldwide release to customers in Q3 of this year.

It features dual OLED displays for a wider field of view, and a crisp picture resolution of 2880x1600 - a 37 percent increase over the current Vive display.

Have a look at the best VR games on PC. Featuring Intel's WiGig technology, the unit operates in what HTC calls an "interference-free" 60Ghz band for better performance. This is a big jump for users, helping to make VR content richer and more immersive, by making it sharper and clearer than ever before. 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. These VR previews are "interactive glimpses of content that give customers a room-scale preview of an experience and the opportunity to interact with content before purchasing or subscribing". Consumer Technology Association forecasted Monday the VR market will see record growth in 2018 with AR/VR headsets and eyewear selling 4.9 million units in the U.S. in 2018 (a more than 25 percent increase from 2017).

Perhaps as a result of that cooperation, HTC also released a version of its Vive Video app for Daydream Monday, allowing users of Google's Daydream VR headset to browse Vimeo videos in VR as well.

The Viveport shop now has more than 2,000 apps now, more than 40% being free of charge. HTC isn't saying when exactly the new Vive will be available for purchase, or how much it will cost as of yet, though. Both are available immediately.
