  • HTC announces Vive Pro headset, wireless Vive adaptor

The Vive Wireless Adaptor features Intel's WiGig technology and offers a VR wireless experience that operates in the interference-free 60Ghz band, which means lower latency and better performance.

HTC is teasing a Vive-related announcement for January 8, the day of its CES press conference. The key to VR is immersion, and better resolution makes that possible.

The Pro's total resolution will be 2880x1600, almost a 78 percent increase over the current Vive's 2160×1200.

HTC began hinting at the Vive Pro last week by posting "new year, new resolution" messages on social media and within the company's SteamVR "Home" hub. That's a lot more work for the GPU. Where before there was one, now there are two front-facing cameras. The full Vive Pro bundle, which will ship with "2.0" versions of the base tracking stations, will launch at a later date. In mid-2017, Valve announced that the second generation of its Steam VR Tracking system was in development and would debut at the end of the year. Unlike any other platform, you'll be able to demo VR games in the VR world through the Vive headset prior to purchasing a title. The device also comes with dual microphones, also accessible to developers. One of the complaints of the original Vive was that it was hard to adjust and heavy, and you had to plug in headphones, creating another cable dangling to potentially upset your VR experience. HTC redesigned the shape of the strap to offer more adjustment range for the headphones, and it reworked the rear section of the headstrap to provide additional support.

There's no talk about pricing right now, but HTC promises there will be a head-mounted display (HMD) replacement plan for current Vive owners later this quarter.

HTC seems to have concentrated on sound as much as sight with the Vive Pro, as the headset features "integrated, high-performance headphones" complete with a built-in amplifier. Obviously, the main advantage of this is a larger room-scale environment to explore, but you can also use it to host more Vive headsets (or Steam VR-enabled headsets) in the same space.
