Recently in CES, we were introduced to HTC Vive Pro and HTC Vive Wireless Adapter. Many of the users were waiting for the Wireless Adapter to be used with the higher resolution Vive Pro. This event was thus evidenced at MWC 2018 where both of these devices were demonstrated together.
I got to step into the hot air balloon experience to try out the Vive Pro with the Vive Wireless Adapter. Very similar to my time with the Adapter and the original Vive at CES, I did seem to notice some added latency, but it was minimal enough that typical users may not spot it. The hot air balloon experience didn’t require any quick motions (and thus wasn’t an ideal stress test for the wireless connection by any means), and I didn’t spot any noticeable reduction in visual quality or framerate, so it seems the Vive Wireless adapter doesn’t have any obvious issues pushing the 1,600 × 1,440 per-eye resolution of the Vive Pro – Comment by a spokesperson
This user shared the happening experience as he was introduced to unique VR adventure where the user was put in a hot air balloon basket and was sent soaring through a canyon. Further revealing more about Vive Pro, found that it needs only two cables to be plugged into the Vive Wireless Adapter which is a short HDMI cable from the headset, and a USB cable for power.
When this adapter was used in original Vive, it required four cables three running from the headset, and USB from the power pack. Still, where many things are in a closed box we hope the company to come out with more valuable information soon.
