It Looks Like Vive Pro Already Has FCC Approval

TPCAST Announces Support for Windows MR HMD with Universal Wireless VR Module TPCAST Unveils the “TPCAST Plus,” a Comprehensive Upgrade of its Commercial Wireless VR Technology
Frank Williams | 11 January, 2018, 21:46

To begin with, the Vive Pro comes with dual OLED displays that combined offer a "78% increase in resolution over the current Vive HMD".

This news was also confirmed by HTC and it will continue to be compatible with HTV Vive boxes and wands.

Other improvements include headphones and an amplifier built into the headset, dual microphones for active noise cancellation, and dual front-facing cameras.

It remains unclear whether HTC will manufacture improved controllers or a new SteamVR one will be released.

On Tuesday, shares of HTC outperformed the broader market, up 0.42 percent to close at NT$72.30 (US$2.45) after the debut of the Vive Pro, while the weighted index on the main board ended down 0.01 percent at 10,914.89 points.

The Vive Pro is an upgraded version of the Vive, while the Vive Wireless Adaptor accessory finally gets rid of the dragging cables that have annoyed me since I first put on an Oculus Rift DK1. But I digress. We've been keeping an eye on HTC's VIVE and Oculus for a while, even though they're not technically related to Android, but for the sake of information here are the two companies' CES 2018 news.

Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST — Sharper Edge
Inside, the facelifted 2019 Edge features a redesigned center console featuring a new rotary gearshift dial. Ford sold over 142,000 Edges in 2017, with Edge Sports accounting for about 10 percent of that total.

"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 USA market, said in a statement. According to HTC, this will reduce latency and improve performance. It uses Intel's WiGig technology, connecting to a PC in the 60GHz band instead of the more common 2.4 and 5GHz bands.

He continued: "Like many people in the industry, we see VR complementing AR [augmented reality] in terms of being part of an expanded immersive technological revolution; innovations in VR complement AR in terms of development and reach".

HTC also announced the Vive Wireless Adaptor, which, very much like TPCast, will be plugged into a Vive-equipped computer to broadcast video signal wirelessly. The Vive Wireless Adaptor is HTC's first attempt at embracing a cord-less future for VR and is ready to ship to customers worldwide in sometime in Q3 this year.

This will be called the Vive Wireless Adaptor and will provide a better movement range for the owners since it will no longer be attached. The Vive Pro impressed me with its sharpness, and now stands as the most crisp VR experience I've tried.
