With various tech companies introducing new VR headsets and VR-compatible games to the market, this is definitely a product that will change the way we use technology. So obviously CES isn’t going to pass this up, especially when there’s very strong candidates this year. Tech company HTC VIVE released a major upgrade to their Virtual Reality (VR) gadgets with the Vive Pro VR headset. There are also some additional newly released functions that brings VR content to the next level.

Specs for the Vive Pro VR Headset

Since this is coming from one of the giants of the VR industry, expect nothing less than the best display and audio from the Vive Pro VR headset. It comes with dual-OLED displays with a combined resolution of 2880×1600, which is a whooping 78% increase in resolution compared with the previous model. This improved clarity makes everything a lot sharper, giving way for better immersion experiences. To make everything even more immersive, the headset comes with high-quality noise-canceling headphones with built-in amplifiers for better sense of presence and audio quality.

Audio and visual quality is not the only important things going into a good VR headset. Comfort is also very important in making the experience legit. The Vive Pro VR headset offers unparalleled comfort with its ergonomic design. It offers users a sizing dial for a more balanced device which decreases weight from the front of the headset. There’s even a pair of front-facing cameras that allow game creators to get a little creative with their work.

New Functions

As I’ve said before, HTC VIVE is adding new VR-specific functions to spice things up. The most groundbreaking one is their fully immersive interactive VR previews. Instead of a regular photo or video, you can actually experience the game in 3D VR before you make any decisions. And they don’t skimp on this either, because you really are getting the best of room-scale VR from the previews. Tieing in rather closely to this is the Viveport VR subscription service. With over 1,000 titles and 325 open for subscription, this is where the VR world will move to next. HTC VIVE created the new VR video player Vive Video to convert a wide range of quality streaming video to the Vive Pro VR headset. Currently, they’ve teamed up with Vimeo, with a selected collection made VR-compatible.

Updates and Pricing

Since this product was just announced, its not out for the consumer market yet. So not even the price has been named. But with all the technology that went into making the Vive Pro VR headset, I would say to expect a pretty hefty sum.
