CES 2018: HTC Hints at New Vive Announcement Next Week

HTC's Vive Pro will add more pixels to an otherwise familiar-looking VR system

We know that it will default as a wired VR system, however, and we can nearly certainly confirm that it will not offer an improved field-of-view (FOV), thanks to the new resolution conforming to the original Vive's resolution ratio. This offers a quick way for users to check out games and other VR experiences without having to commit to purchasing or downloading it.

HTC has interestingly integrated two cameras in front of the headset that developers will be able to use to power augmented reality experiences, although details on that will be revealed closer to the release.

The Vive Pro is a new head mounted display built for enthusiasts and enterprise users.

11 killed in avalanche in Kashmir
The survivor was identified as Ghulam Nabi Bhat, son of Ali Mohammed Bhat, a resident of Kalmona, Kralpora, Kupwara. The Chief Minister expressed sympathies with the bereaved families and prayed for solace to the departed souls.

The Vive Pro and the wireless adaptor are two features that may help foster more interest from mainstream consumers. The new displays on the Vive Pro will be a 78 percent increase in resolution over the original Vive, HTC explained at press conference on Monday. Available in the second half of 2018, the adaptor features Intel's WiGig technology and operates in the interference-free 60Ghz band.

Considered the largest upgrade to the Viveport platform since launch, Viveport VR will take the traditional 2D catalog and show it off will immersive and interactive previews.

GM Daniel O'Briend said, "There's a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset".

Nick Kyrgios comes back to make semi-finals in Brisbane International

We'll be trying the HTC Vive Pro at CES, so look out for our impressions soon. This will make it easier to decide if you want to download, whether it's one of 1,000 standalone titles or the 325 available for subscription. There's also new 3D audio which will work with the new and original Vive base stations.

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. It improves the UI and adds new features, and content from Vimeo can also now be accessed right through the app.

Twitter explains why it hasn't banned President Trump
But according to Twitter's ever-evolving and sometimes seemingly contradictory rules , Trump's threat was too vague. We are working to make Twitter the best place to see and freely discuss everything that matters.
