Virtual reality is coming to the corporate sector as HTC reveals it is releasing a Business Edition of its Vive headset.
This special edition is available from this month in the US, Canada, UK, Germany and France only. The headset will then be released worldwide in the coming weeks”, HTC stated.
The Vive Business Edition is priced at 849 – which is over 200 more than the standard edition.
It includes the full Vive System (the headset, two controllers, two base stations), a dedicated support line and a 12-month warranty.
VP of VR Daniel O'Brien commented: With Vive BE, we are answering the overwhelming demand from global industries for a complete VR experience, to provide innovative solutions for their business needs.
Expediting the growth of partner organisations through application of Vive technology is an incredibly important part of our ongoing VR strategy, and will ensure Vive continues to be at the forefront of the enterprise sector.”
Let's hope the Vive Business Edition will not experience the same shipment problems than the standard version.
