HTC Drops Price Of Vive Pro Eye, Announces New Vive Pro Eye Bundles
New HTC Pro Eye solutions make VR more accessible to businesses of all sizes.
HTC has had a busy first quarter. The company recently unveiled a fleet of new Vive Cosmos headsets for every level of VR users and new faceplates that will expand the functionality of your Cosmos.
Up next for HTC is a full suite of enterprise Vive Pro Eye solutions that will give businesses of all sizes the tools to explore or expand in areas such as training and simulation, consumer feedback and analytics, gaze-oriented navigation, and many other enterprise solutions.
To do this, HTC is rolling out new additions to the Vive Pro Eye family. The Vive Pro Eye Office and the Vive Pro Eye Office Arena Bundle offer organizations everything from extended business and warranty services for dedicated and expedited customer service support with their VR Pro Eye headsets to additional base stations for larger VR spaces.
Vive Pro Eye Office ($1,599) includes all of the features that come with Vive Pro Eye plus the added bonus of Vive Enterprise Business Warranty and Services, offering an expedited customer service experience and an extended warranty in a single package in case your company runs into any issues with hardware.
Vive Pro Eye Office Arena Bundle ($2,350) offers businesses everything included in the Vive Pro Eye Office package along with the ability to set up a larger 33’ x 33’ operating space for destination entertainment via two additional SteamVR 2.0 base stations and a 20m fiber cable.
Along with HTC’s Pro Eye bundles, Vive has simplified its business warranty and support program. The new Business Warranty and Services (formally called Advantage) will help businesses protect their VR investment and are included as standard in any “Office” bundle. The package includes a two-year limited commercial-use warranty, support, and services. Features like next-business-day email response and expedited product repair minimize downtime.
As if that weren’t enough, HTC is dropping the price of their Vive Pro Eye to $1,399 (originally $1,599) making it easier for companies to bring VR into the fold of their organization.
Built for business and professional users who are utilizing VR for everything from workforce training, research, or entertainment, HTC’s Vive Pro Eye offers native eye-tracking, high-resolution visuals, increased comfort, and the precision of external tracking in VR environments. HTC’s new offerings for their Vive Pro Eye series delivers three levels of enterprise VR solutions and support, giving companies the ability to select the best option based on their various needs and use cases.
In an official press release, Yves Maitre, CEO of HTC said, “Companies today need access to a diverse set of hardware and VR solutions built for their specific needs, and we developed these offerings to provide our enterprise customers with increased choice and the important tools and services to make VR an integrated tool within their business.“ Maitre adds, “As business use cases for extended reality become more prominent and diverse, the new Vive Pro Eye series delivers multiple ways to address the majority of VR use cases today.”
Since the introduction of VR and AR, companies of all sizes across various industries have turned to immersive tech to train thousands of people safely and efficiently. Whether it be the fields of manufacturing, medicine, transportation, consumer research, real estate, and everything in-between, companies are realizing the value of VR. By incorporating the Vive Pro Eye into their daily operations, companies can experience a new level of immersive training, conduct deeper product research, and deliver more intuitive and engaging experiences to both their customers and employees.
The new Vive Pro Eye Office and Pro Eye Office Arena Bundle Enterprise solution will be available in Q2. For more on Vive Pro Eye, please visit enterprise.vive.com.
