And if someone prefers a new headset, HTC's Vive Pro will improve what now exists in the HTC Vive by upgrading the pixel density and resolution of the two OLED screens in the headset, offering two 2880×1600 OLED screens and a density of 615ppi, more pixel clarity than what can be found on both the Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream with the latest phones. This device is the premium experience missing from the VR market today - up to the next level in every way. We would have thought the higher resolution display would call for a new lens design. 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. "Not only does the integration with Vive Video showcase some of Vimeo's highest quality, human-curated content within the VR experience, but it also gives those creators an exciting new way to expose their work and engage with audiences". The new headset boasts 4,608,000 pixels to fill, which is a 78% increase.
The Vive Pro also features updated tracking sensors. The new system also supports two extra base stations (for a total of four) and play areas as large as 10m x 10m. Consumer Technology Association forecasted Monday the VR market will see record growth in 2018 with AR/VR headsets and eyewear selling 4.9 million units in the U.S. in 2018 (a more than 25 percent increase from 2017). The headset itself looks far less clunky than the original, and HTC has added a blue color to the key elements and the front display. It also comes with a new head strap, which looks nearly identical to the Vive Deluxe Audio strap.
Additionally, HTC announced an update for Viveport that will replace the existing 2D catalog the service provides.
