HTC unveils Vive Pro at CES 2018

HTC unveils Vive Pro at CES 2018”

A day later on from the above and the we're back with the latter for yet another announcement about wireless support, as TPCAST announces support for Windows Mixed Reality HMDs thanks to the Universal Wireless VR Module.

The design will allegedly be a lot more comfortable than the current hardware as well with a brand new weight support system; so potentially get ready to say goodbye to feeling like you're the one holding the headset up straight.

TPCast Plus devices are going to be rolling out in the first half of the year.

It is proving to be a busy International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 for virtual reality (VR), particularly when it comes to wireless, standalone or "untethered" VR. It took most of the year to fulfill that promise, but TPCast began shipping units to European and North American customers in the fall. The Vive Wireless Adapter is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2018. This will be licensed to headset manufacturers themselves, so expect some to be announced later on down the line. It will work with both the Vive Pro and original Vive. Furthermore, the TPCast Wireless adapter requires a dedicated router (included in the box) that makes setup complicated and cumbersome, and it can interfere with your existing home network.

The TPCast Plus features the same wireless transmission technology as the original model, which can handle 2K @ 90Hz per eye while introducing less than 2ms of latency. The availability of the wireless adapter will help address cable dangling issue now plagued head-mounted display (HMD) VR devices. What do you think these new devices will cost?

Additionally, TPCast created a head plate, which provides a location to mount the battery pack.

But perhaps most significantly, the Vive Wireless Adaptor allows for cable-free ducking, diving, peeking and roaming through the headset's room-scale games and experiences.

"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", Daniel O'Brien, general manager of HTC's VIVE in the us market, said in a statement.
