HTC has just announced that they’ll be partnering up with Intel to bring their WiGig Wireless VR Solution to the Vive. This is another set of announcement on top of the good news with the Vive Deluxe Audio Strap. HTC has stated that they’ll be manufacturing the WiGig wireless VR accessory to continue in providing users with the “best VR experiences available.”
To create this high-end VR experience for the Vive ecosystem, Intel and HTC recognized the need to better integrate the HMD with high-computing capabilities. The WiGig technology, based on 802.11ad standard, works solely in the interference- free 60GHz band, and enables high throughput and low latency in both directions, from the PC to HMD and from HMD to PC. This means pristine video quality with <7ms latency in any environment, supporting multiple users sharing the same space. All of this results in the seamless wireless VR with the Vive!
This is great news in further developing a seamless solution and VR experience. Intel will be showcasing their proof of concept at this year’s E3 Conference in Los Angeles from June 13 – 15. Stay tuned as we deliver more news around the product.
