The Vive XR Suite is the latest entrant into the remote working and collaboration market
HTC has launched its latest phones today (June 16, 2020). Furthermore, its extended-reality (XR) tech arm, Vive, also has a new product to introduce to the world. This company is best known for delivering entertainment and gaming content through these media; however, XR Suite seeks to move the brand's hardware into a new panel of use-cases, cloud-based professional collaboration and conferencing included.
Vive Campus, on the other hand, may offer the opportunity to pursue one's education using devices such as VR/AR headsets. Vive Social and Museum may be able to deliver events, exhibitions included, via the same kind of hardware.
HTC has also announced that a number of partners have signed up to deliver such content using this XR Suite. They include VRChat, Immersive VR Education, VirBELA, and Museum of Other Realities, companies that offer software that might fit in with the capabilities of the various new apps.
For example, VirBELA may enable users to set up virtual office environments, whereas Museum of Other Realities may help with art shows and similar events - this software will even help make the Cannes Film Festival 2020 virtual in 2020.
In addition, HP has also revealed that it will pre-load the Vive XR Suite on a selection of its enterprise-grade PCs and notebooks. HTC will officially launch it in the third quarter of 2020 (3Q2020) in the Chinese market, on which occasion an additional tie-in with the search platform Baidu will also be unveiled. This event will be followed with more global releases.
