HTC says the Vive Pro also offers dual microphones with active noise cancellation and dual front-facing cameras. The Vive Pro's resolution is 2880x1600 (combined), a 78% increase from the standard 2160×1200 resolution shared by the original Vive and the Oculus Rift. 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. The new portal features sample VR previews that give quick interactive glimpses into a game.
HTC's upgraded Vive headset is a much-needed update for the line.
In addition, the company debuted new improvements in how VR users discover, experience and acquire VR content through a radical redesign of Viveport VR and Vive Video.
HTC did not mention if or whether the company would begin manufacturing improved HTC Vive controllers, nor whether they would work off of Valve's "Knuckles" spec for a new SteamVR controller.
Additionally, HTC announced plans to release its own Vive Wireless Adapter, which, like the TPCast, will plug into a Vive-equipped computer to broadcast its video signal wirelessly. This piece of equipment will operat in the interference-free 60Ghz band, says HTC, and will be up to "the most discerning quality bar for home users and business VR customers", so says Frank Soqui, General Manager Virtual Reality Group at Intel Corporation.
