HTC Launches Viveport VR

At CES 2018, the firm announced the HTC Vive Pro, a premium headset with a greatly improved display resolution and a pixel density.

HTC also announced the Vive Wireless Adaptor, which uses Intel's WiGig wireless docking tech, as well as improvements to Viveport VR. Compared to the original Vive, the Pro model adds sharper resolution with 2880x1600 dual-OLED displays, built-in headphones, a redesigned headstrap, and dual front-facing cameras. The Vive Wireless Adaptor will allow both the HTC Vive and the HTC Vive Pro to go wireless. The original Vive debuted almost two years ago, and the new Vive Pro is clearly created to address some of the complaints of that earlier headset.

"There's a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset", said HTC's Daniel O'Brien.

He said instructions have been given to Deputy Commissioner Kupwara to release the relief immediately. Mir also issued directions to provide better medical facilities to the injured, the spokesman said.

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

"Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wishlist since the technology was unveiled", said Intel GM Frank Soqui.

HTC is refreshing its Vive headset with a new Pro model today. Vive Video solves the discovery and acquisition problem for VR video content by delivering a large catalog of high quality streaming video directly to VR headsets. For those already using a standard HTC Vive, that's a 78% increase in resolution over the same panel space. Timing and pricing wasn't divulged yet, but hopefully we'll see a price drop for the original Vive once the Pro is on the market. This will make it easier to decide if you want to download, whether it's one of 1,000 standalone titles or the 325 available for subscription.

Police checked in and around the subway station after the blast to make sure there were no other explosive devices. A 45-year-old woman was also injured in the blast. "This is totally unacceptable", Alvarsjo said.

HTC's upgraded Vive headset is a much-needed update for the line.

The company also partnered with Vimeo to integrate more video content into a revamped version of its Vive Video app, and now lets users choose the next video while they still watch the current clip - perhaps laying the foundation for binge-watching in VR.
