TPCast began selling the Oculus Rift version of its wireless adapter in December 2017, enabling users to finally free themselves of cables for a more immersive virtual reality (VR) experience. This came at some cost however, so today TPCast has announced a reduction in the list price for the Oculus Rift version.
In order to make the TPCast Wireless Adapter attractive to even more customers, the list price (including tax) has been reduced from €389 EUR/£349 GBP to €359/£324 GBP this week. Currently, the TPCast Wireless Adapter for Oculus Rift offers the only wireless solution for the headset on the market.
“With the price decrease, even more consumers will enjoy wireless Virtual Reality and additionally the new software version for the Oculus Rift CE adapter will give consumers a flawless Virtual Reality experience and enhance the wireless Virtual Reality experience,” said Reiner Pes, General Manager, TPCast B.V. in a statement.
The new software version (V3.0.2) for the TPCast Wireless Adapter for the Oculus Rift is available via TPCast’s support page.
It’s worth noting that while the list price may have dropped retailers were already selling the adapter for less. Over on the Overclockers UK website for example the TPCast Wireless Adapter for Oculus Rift retails for £299.99. And for those of you who happen to live in North America the adapter is currently discounted on the TPCast website, reduced from $349.00 USD to $319.00.
The consumer edition of TPCast wireless adapter is a special accessory designed for Oculus Rift. The kit consists of four parts: PC TX Module (TX), RX Module (RX), a router and a battery with a charger. It supports 2K video transmission at 90Fps with sub 2ms latency. The adapter comes with a battery to power the headset and the wireless module and can last for up to five hours of operation.
