Reading Time: 2 minutes

Today, we are proud to share that the VIVE Pro 2 was named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Virtual & Augmented Reality category.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic, and design.

“We’re thrilled that the VIVE Pro 2 was named a top-scoring product in the CES Innovation Awards. VIVE Pro 2 pushes the boundaries of PC VR, advancing how we experience and create immersive worlds. Whether you are creating the impossible or a high-end gamer, the VIVE Pro 2 takes precision and clarity to the next level to deliver the ultimate VR experience,” said Daniel O’Brien, General Manager, HTC Americas.

VIVE Pro 2 delivers crystal clear, smooth animations that transport you to virtual worlds in a stunning 5K resolution display and fluid 120 Hz refresh rate – which is significantly higher than the standard 90 Hz found on most VR headsets. VIVE Pro 2’s fast-switching panel has real RGB sub-pixels, and a custom-made, dual stacked-lens design that increases the field of view from 110-degrees to 120-degrees over the original VIVE Pro. These advances effectively eliminate both motion blur and the screen door effect, providing users with a more natural and immersive experience, which is critical in design and training scenarios.

HTC VIVE worked closely with NVIDIA and AMD to implement Display Stream Compression on VIVE Pro 2, marking the first use of this technology in a VR headset. Display Stream Compression ensures maximum visual quality and backwards compatibility with DisplayPort 1.2, so graphics cards that supported the original VIVE Pro can also be used with VIVE Pro 2.

VIVE Pro 2 has a fine-adjustable inter-pupillary distance (IPD) range, meaning users can adjust the distance between the lenses of the headset to their personal “sweet spot” for clearer viewing and reduced eye strain. The headset also offers an evenly distributed weight balance, an adjustable head strap, and a quick-adjusting sizing dial – perfect for fine-tuning your personal preferences for a better, more comfortable experience, particularly handy for those using the headset for long periods of time. VIVE Pro 2 also boasts 3D spatial sound with Hi-Res Audio Certified headphones, while also supporting third-party headphones, for a truly immersive experience.

The winners of the CES® 2022 Innovation Awards will be revealed at CES 2022, the world’s most influential technology event taking place January 5-8, 2022 in Las Vegas, NV and digitally.
