HTC Vive offers four headsets that are focused on business solutions.
Consumer virtual reality (VR) may have restarted the industry as a whole, but business solutions have become a key part of the strategy of many immersive companies. Today, HTC Vive announced a new business unit, which seeks to develop this area, Vive Enterprise Solutions.
By launching the HTC Vive Pro Eye and Vive Focus Plus headsets aimed at the corporate market, the new business unit will help companies integrate hardware, software, and XR services for their professional needs.
Vive Enterprise Solutions will consider four key areas in which enterprises invest today: training and modeling, design and visualization; virtual location and location based entertainment.
“In enterprises, VR is quickly becoming the killer application of the industry. We provide solutions for small and large commercial creators to help them be successful and to meet business needs, ”says Daniel O’Brien, head of Vive Enterprise Solutions, HTC Vive in a statement.
“We are in a unique position to offer enterprises a comprehensive business solution, partly due to our own equipment innovations and joint industry relations. We are pleased to continue working with professional users to provide the best hardware, software and services to help them succeed. ”
When developing integrated software solutions and professional services necessary for servicing and supporting corporate customers, HTC Vive business solutions are based on headsets, of course. Companies have four devices to choose from depending on requirements. For a high-end PC-based VR, there is the HTC Vive Pro starting at £ 1,082.50 GBP or the HTC Vive Pro Eyefrom £ 1,250 (great for analytics). Or, when mobility is a priority, there is always the HTC Vive Focus, starting at £ 532.50 or the HTC Vive Focus Plus, which is selling from £ 639.00 (all prices exclude VAT).
Companies that want to deploy more VR solutions are spoiled for choice when it comes to new hardware. Learning is a big part of why many companies invest in XR solutions and with this comes manual interaction. Manus VR is one of the companies at the forefront of this development, recently announcing a new Manus Prime tactile glove. A slightly different approach is offered by Dexta Robotics with the Dexmo Enterprise Edition feedback glove.
As you develop XR business solutions, VRcue will keep you updated.
