  • Is HTC Going To Unveil A 4K Vive VR Headset At CES 2018

But some other companies have started to ship VR headsets with a higher resolution.

Built for the VR fan that wants the best, the new model will have a 2800 x 1600 OLED display (615ppi). This should help with crisper text and graphics within VR experiences. Vive Pro also features integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier to offer a heightened sense of presence and an overall richer sound. "Vive Pro offers an immediate upgrade for both VR enthusiasts and enterprises that want to utilize the best VR experience". HTC says the current Vive will remain on sale throughout 2018, and HTC will sell the Vive Pro headset standalone to existing customers this quarter.

Along with the new Vive Pro, HTC is launching the new Vive Wireless Adapter today. It runs in the 60GHz band to cut down on potential interference and uses Intel's WiGig specifications.

And lastly, HTC is bringing a new feature called VR Previews to its Viveport platform. "Until now, there has not been a shopping and browsing experience that takes advantage of the full functionality of VR".

Perhaps as a result of that cooperation, HTC also released a version of its Vive Video app for Daydream Monday, allowing users of Google's Daydream VR headset to browse Vimeo videos in VR as well.

That's particularly the case for high-end VR systems like the Vive or rival Oculus Rift, a headset from Facebook's Oculus unit.

It's CES 2018, the largest consumer electronic convention in the world, and naturally virtual reality (VR) has an ever growing part to play.
