Product information - Pro Eye VR Headset (Kit) + Wireless Adapter + Attachment KitThis set consists of an HTC Vive Pro Eye, Wireless adapter and clip to enable users to take their enjoyment of wireless Virtual Reality fun to the next level.
The Vive Pro Eye from HTC is an updated version of the Vive Pro and includes a new eye-tracking fature that enables control over your games using eye movement. This enables the HTC Vive Pro Eye to use Foveated Rendering technology, whereby only the areas being looked at directly are rendered at their full resolution. This is possible due to it tracking pupil movement. The audio system has been upgraded once again in comparison to its predecessor.

Total Immersion with the HTC Vive Pro Eye Virtual Reality Headset:The use of AMOLED displays in the headset enables the picture of the Vive Pro to be exceptionally sharp, meaning that users benefit from a significantly more realistic VR experience. To enable smooth video output, something that is vital for preventing the effects of motion sickness, the display outputs a refresh rate of 90 Hertz and a Motion-to-Photon latency of below 20ms. What is new here is the presence of the small sensors within the headset that enable the precise tracking of the user's pupils. If the content has been adapted accordingly, a glance at a switch is all it takes to trigger it. Or avatars can look each other directly in the eye, which increases the power of the social component within virtual worlds.
The eye-tracking is also used for the Foveated Rendering technology. The image areas that are currently in the user's field of vision are rendered in front of the graphics card. The areas outside remain blurred until the user's gaze is focused on them. Because this reduces the load on the graphics card and CPU, the areas displayed in the field of view can be rendered in higher quality. At the same time, the required computing power decreases.
SteamVR 2.0 for Maximum Freedom of MovementThe Vive Pro Eye supports the advanced version of SteamVR, the motion tracking technology developed in cooperation with the game developer Valve, and the large playing surface of 6 x 6 meters. All movements carried out within this area are transmitted to the game world by highly sensitive laser sensors.
Maximum Safety with the HTC Chaperone System32 sensors, which are embedded in the front area of the headset, are used to record the movements. These sensors transmit every movement of the player, such as a head twist or a quick duck, thus enabling natural movements in virtual reality. Motion tracking is also performed via the laser sensors known as "Lighthouse Stations 2.0". These "lighthouses" are the unique selling point of the Vive ecosystem and make the Vive Pro the perfect VR system.
This 360-degree motion tracking allows the player to move like on the holodeck known from Star Trek. When you reach the edge of the playing surface, a barrier in the form of a grid is displayed on the OLED displays. This technology is called Chaperone System and can be adapted to individual specifications via software settings.
The Chaperone system is automatically activated if the player moves too close to an obstacle, but can also be manually displayed via the VR controllers. The obstacles defined by the Chaperone system are then displayed similarly to the matrix in "Matrix" or the virtual reality in the film "Tron". Two cameras Vive Pro integrated in the Vive Pro allow to fade in physical elements into virtual reality.
Including Hi-Res headphones with 3D Spatial SoundTo make the VR experience as immersive as possible not only visually but also acoustically, the Vive Pro Eye-Headset offers integrated headphones with a powerful digital amplifier and Hi-Res certification. Thanks to the wide frequency spectrum, high-resolution audio signals can be fully appreciated. Two integrated microphones enable active noise suppression to reliably suppress disturbing ambient noise.
You can also communicate with your environment or smartphone via the vigilance or communication mode. For example, phone calls can be made or text messages read without having to remove the headset. For maximum comfort, the Vive Pro is equipped with a redesigned headset strap, while the newly developed face mask in combination with the nose pad allows even spectacle wearers a high level of comfort and adapts to any face shape. Thanks to the special foam used and the shape of the nose pad, ingress of light is reliably prevented and disturbing reflections are effectively minimised.
In addition, the two included VR controllers can be integrated into the system as an input interface with the help of which virtual reality interactions take place. Depending on the game or program, these can act as paintbrushes, a ray-gun or to mount the perfect bumper to your newly designed car. Since the VR controllers also have motion tracking sensors, the current position of the VR controllers is always displayed when playing.
Set with Wireless Adapter and MountThe HTC Vive Wireless Adapter included in this set cuts the wired connection for VR experiences and takes VR technology to the next level, because the wireless connection enables a much closer and more vivid interaction between the virtual world and the player. The cables from the VR headset no longer run to the PC, but over an extremely short distance directly into the Vive Wireless adapter, which is mounted on the upper headband of the VR headset. The wireless adapter works on a playing surface of 6 x 6 meters and can be used with up to three receivers simultaneously.
The HDMI 2.0 signal makes it possible to wirelessly transmit the full Vive Pro resolution of twice 1,440 x 1,600 pixels, completely without compression and at 90 Hertz fluidity. The included rechargeable battery should also provide gaming fun for up to two and a half hours and can easily disappear into the player's trouser pocket or be attached to the practical belt holder, which is of course much more convenient. The clip for the wireless adapter needed for attachment, including a clamping device, a foam pad and a short connection cable is also included.
