Microsoft Selling TPCast for HTC Vive in NA, Pre-Orders Now Available
Microsoft is selling the HTC Vive wireless transmitter into North America.
The TPCast Wireless Adapter for HTC Vive opened European pre-orders last month, and today the pre-order campaign for North American has begun. The unlikeliest of partners, Microsoft, has kicked-off pre-orders through its online store.
The TPCast Wireless Adapter is an easy-to-install wireless solution for HTC Vive virtual reality (VR) experiences. The head-mounted display (HMD) receiver mounts directly to the HTC Vive and wirelessly communicates with the included PC transmitter, while a long life battery allows for up to six hours of gameplay between charges.
The TPCast Wireless Adapter will retail for $299 USD, and comes bundled with the following content:
- PC transmitter
- HMD receiver
- Power box (with a 20000Am.h power bank)
- USB long type connection line
- HDMI short type connection line
- User guide
It’s somewhat of a shock that Microsoft are leading the field as an online retailer for the TPCast Wireless Adapter, given the recent announcement of the consumer launch for the Windows 10 Mixed Reality HMDs. However, one can assume that the retail team act independently, and thus have chosen to partner for the launch of the TPCast Wireless Adapter as an isolated agreement.
The device will officially launch on 25th September 2017, with pre-orders are available now at the Microsoft Store. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on the TPCast Wireless Adapter.
