Vive VR unveils shiny new Pro headset, wireless adapter

This resolution increase should help with clearer text rendering and overall graphics, and the bump puts the Vive Pro beyond the Oculus Rift or Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

HTC's Vive Pro is also backwards compatible with both 1.0 and 2.0 SteamVR tracking, and you can use up to four base stations for room tracking on the Vive Pro.

HTC's new Vive Pro packs two OLED displays with a resolution of 2880×1600 pixels, which is apparently a 78% improvement in resolution over the regular Vive.

It also features sharper resolution, built-in headphones, a redesigned headstrap for a more comfortable fit and dual front-facing cameras. The Vive Pro brings built-in audio and wireless options, and, most importantly, an nearly 80 percent boost in screen resolution.

The new headset will also come with integrated headphones, and is created to be lighter and more comfortable than the existing Vive headset.

Flying Philander leads Proteas to first test victory over India
Buveneshwar Kumar starred for the Indians in the first innings, claiming impressive figures of 4/87 that had plenty of skill. Mohammed Shami and last man Jasprit Bumrah were undone in successive balls by typical Philander outswingers to seal victory.

Vive Pro customers won't have to purchase an audio kit like with the original Vive, and HTC also included dual microphones to the headset for noise cancellation.

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 wish list since the technology was unveiled", Frank Soqui, GM of the virtual reality group at Intel, said in a statement.

Beyond the blue colouring and a slightly tighter design, the Vive Pro also features a redesigned head strap, making it easier for users to resize to suit their unique noggins. "Available in early access today, Viveport VR increases interaction with content and offers developers a preview that showcases the quality of their titles and experiences".

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

HTC is teasing a Vive-related announcement for January 8, the day of its CES press conference. The new portal features sample VR previews that give quick interactive glimpses into a game. The native VR video player Vive Video is now pulling in content from one of the world's largest ad-free open video platforms.
