HTC Vive has today announced the Vive Pro 2.0 Kit specifically built for commercial users to develop and deliver VR experiences to grow their business. In addition, the ‘Enterprise Advantage’ service will offer dedicated support, onsite customer pick up and return and a two-year commercial warranty covering the head-mounted display (HMD) and accessories.
The Vive Pro 2.0 Kit retails for £1,299 GBP and includes the Vive Pro HMD, SteamVR tracking 2.0, two base stations and two controllers. Created for business-use, the out of the box roomscale range is 6 x 6 meters and will support up to 10 x 10 meters with multiple base stations. Individual base stations will be available for purchase separately at a later date.
“Enterprise VR is developing rapidly, with a broad portfolio of use cases from architecture and design to simulation training. Vive’s VR technology is creating new ways for companies to interact and collaborate with customers and employees,” said Hervé Fontaine, VP Business Development and Enterprise, Vive Europe. “We are bringing the market a premium VR experience with a high-resolution display, integrated high quality audio, premium ergonomics and an extended tracking space. Vive Pro offers the ideal solution for companies that need a high quality VR solution which can be easily deployed within their business”.
Enabling small to large companies to leverage the VR solution and protect their investment, Vive Enterprise Advantage professional services offers commercial licensing, dedicated support, and service utilities for HTC Vive Pro. Each program offers purchase protection with tailored hardware warranties, limited down time, dedicated support and advanced device management utilities. HTC Vive Pro’s new enterprise management tool gives businesses the flexibility and control to manage Vive deployments and updates easily and securely. The Enterprise Advantage service is available for £165 (excluding VAT).
The HTC Vive Pro launched earlier this month, celebrating the two-year anniversary of the original HTC Vive model. For consumers, an upgrade option to replace the original HMD is available as the HTC Vive Pro is compatible with all existing base stations and controllers.
At present, a palette swap on the controllers and the upgraded base stations are the only changes outside of the Vive Pro HMD itself, however and new controllers, codenamed ‘knuckles’, are also on the HTC Vive roadmap. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on the HTC Vive and HTC Vive Pro.
