For HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners that want to go wireless, TPCAST offers one of the most well known options to do so. With the growing number of businesses using virtual reality (VR) headsets in multi user scenarios, TPCAST has unveiled a new enterprise focused edition for the North American market.
The first edition of the TPCAST Business Edition (BE) Wireless Adapter will support HTC Vive, simultaneously supporting two to four players whilst maintaining a sub 2ms latency claims the company. Targeting multiuser VR activities across a variety of verticals including medical, automotive, real estate, training and other multi user VR applications, TPCAST will be selling the business edition directly via its website and through various retail partners in Q2 2018.
“We’re excited about the Virtual Reality market and technology, and happy to introduce the wireless TPCAST Business Edition to the North American market,” stated Udi Yuhjtman, TPCAST’s North America General Manger. “The wireless adapter enables Virtual Reality customers to experience an extraordinary, immersive experience, where there is high demand for multi-user VR applications. TPCAST is committed to the VR market and has been showing its commitment by enhancing the VR experience and continuously delivering new wireless solutions.”
Easily attaching to the HTC Vive, the TPCAST Wireless BE Adapter kit consists of four parts: the PC transmitter modules (TX), the helmet receiver modules (RX), battery power box and a business class router.
“The TPCAST Business Edition enables us to create and provide an all-new product-line that was previously unavailable. By combining the HTC Vive Business Edition, TPCAST Business Edition, the VRcade Attraction Management Platform (AMP), and our VRcade content, we can offer a new set of wireless, multi-player solutions to entertainment business operators that increases throughput, decreases operational complexity and keeps them ahead of consumer offerings,” stated Dave Ruddel, Chief Architect of VRStudios.
While HTC Vive will be the first headset to be supported additional headset support will be introduced in Q3 2018. Pricing for the BE version hasn’t been released. Interested US customers will have to contact TPCAST directly. For any further updates from TPCAST, keep reading VRFocus.
