HTC also annoucned a number of new Vive Business software offerings including Vive Business App Store, Vive Business Training, Vive Business Streaming, & Vive Business Device Management.
I had a chance to talk with Alvin Wang Graylin, the China President at HTC about HTC’s two new VR headsets, the launch of Vive Business, and more context on their Vive XR Ecosystem, new Vive Trackers, Facial tracker, and trends of virtual idols & VTubers including their new virtual spokeperson named VEE.
