HTC launched its Vive VR headset in April, but the company has now unveiled a new version of the device aimed directly at commercial customers.
HTC says it will "lead [the] virtual reality enterprise sector" with the Vive Business Edition (BE), adding that its launch is a response to "the huge demand from industries worldwide to employ virtual reality technology in commercial applications".
While the consumer version of the headset is priced at $799, Vive BE will cost $1200 when it goes on sale later this month. That price includes:
- Complete Vive BE System
- Vive BE Headset
- Vive BE Controllers x2
- Vive BE Base Stations x2
- Vive BE 3-in-1 Cable
- Vive BE Face Cushions x4
- Dedicated Vive Business Edition customer support line
- 12-month limited warranty (certain exclusions and limitations apply)
The headset will launch initially in the US, UK, Canada, Germany and France, with a global rollout planned "in the coming weeks".
