Taipei, Taiwan & San Francisco, CA – March 19, 2018 – HTC Vive™ today announced that the HTC Vive Pro™ Head Mounted Display (HMD) will be available for €879 from April 5th. The company also announced a €100 price reduction for the current Vive full kit, bringing it down to €599 across Europe. All Vive Pro HMDs purchased by June 3rd, which will begin shipping on April 5th, will come with a free six-month trial to Viveport Subscription, where consumers can choose up to 5 titles per month from the more than 400 titles available.
“Vive Pro delivers the best premium VR experience available on the market today and improves resolution, audio and comfort for VR enthusiasts and enterprise customers. We are empowering developers to imagine bigger and better than ever before,” said Paul Brown, GM, HTC Vive Europe. “Today, we’re making VR even more accessible by lowering the price of the current Vive. There has never been a better time for VR fans to unleash their imagination with the most complete VR platform available.”
Vive Pro HMD units will begin shipping globally on April 5th, on the second anniversary of Vive’s first commercial ship date. Current Vive owners can upgrade their headset to Vive Pro for the best display, audio, and comfort in the industry. The Vive Pro comes with dual-OLED displays, making for a crisper image resolution of 2880 x 1600 combined, a 78% increase in resolution over the current Vive HMD. In addition to visuals, Vive Pro also features integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier that creates a heightened sense of presence and sound through noise cancellation capabilities. These improved graphics and audio allow for users to experience VR with enhanced clarity, making it the most realistic and immersive VR experience on the market today.
In addition, the Vive Pro has been rebuilt to maximize comfort for the most demanding VR users. The Vive Pro features a redesigned head-strap that balances the weight of the headset more evenly and features easy simple adjustment buttons for Vive users with glasses.
The Vive Pro works with both SteamVR Tracking 1.0 and 2.0, meaning existing Vive customers can upgrade the headset only and continue to use current generation controllers and base stations.
