HTC announces new Vive Pro VR headset with 3K resolution

This was also part of the HTC Vive Pro presentation which will make use of this new feature when four base stations are connected.

All things considered, the HTC Vive is probably the highest-end VR solution out there.

Also worth noting are the dual front-facing cameras, one more than the current Vive, which HTC says are to "empower developer creativity". There's no word on when the wireless adapter is going to be available, or how much it will cost.

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

Remember when last week, HTC did a major tease featuring a new headset with better resolution than the previous models?

Support the protesters in Iran
Public discontent is increasing. people are losing their faith in the establishment system", a third Iranian official said. A gunshot and muzzle flash could be seen in the footage taken in Isfahan province, where there have been days of protests.

Resolution: The Vive Pro packs a 2880 x 1600 resolution display, offering 615ppi to eliminate Screen Door Effect. Featuring Intel's WiGig technology, the unit operates in what HTC calls an "interference-free" 60Ghz band for better performance.

While HTC hasn't released pricing or availability information, the Vive Pro is positioned as a more premium product, and will likely be more expensive than the original Vive, which retails for $600 after a big price cut. Viveport is embracing a VR first approach by including VR enabled "VR Previews", which 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. "Until now, there has not been a shopping and browsing experience that takes advantage of the full functionality of VR".

HTC has stated that Viveport VR will be like going to an airport where you can preview VR games. It's finding an early niche in immersive attractions, where you can strap on a rented headset and wander around, dodge stormtroopers and even work up a sweat.

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. Both are available immediately.
