Continuing the large wave of announcements and highlights from the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 conference in Barcelona, Spain, HTC VIVE also introduced new enterprise immersive services for its XR Elite Bussiness Edition product.

The new business features from HTC VIVE include a revamped VIVERSE platform ready for productivity and remote collaboration use cases, with new AI assistant features.

Every year, the XR industry is delivering more innovation to support humanity. In 2023 we helped older people to have new experiences while also optimising medical diagnostic tools. We put a VR headset onto the International Space Station for mental and physical health. And VIVE Arts helped to create a beautiful look at Vincent van Gogh’s final works, in a way never seen before. XR is inspiring people around the world, and the possibilities are endless.

The new features for the business-optimized XR device include location-based software suite support to support multi-user location-based experiences such as those at arcades, museums, galleries, and cultural institutions. Moreover, the new features include a VIVE Business+ system that optimizes fleet hardware and software deployment.

Combined, HTC VIVE claims that the new features can boost operations across longer multi-user sessions. Additionally, the firm confirmed that new hardware accessories, such as a face gasket, over-the-top head strap, and security clips, to support “more versatile use cases.”

Leveraging the VIVERSE and AI for Emerging XR Use Cases

In the VIVERSE immersive collaboration platform, businesses can create bespoke meeting and event spaces to suit a range of remote collaboration use cases.

The start pack includes promotions such as three months of VIVERSE for Business, 10x free VIVE XR Elite Business Edition units, and free access to VIVE Business+ to entice new users to its platform – perhaps aiming to join the mainstream wave of XR production tools brought on Apple Vision Pro.

Moreover, the VIVERSE platform has deep AI integration to enhance the platform.

The new AI features introduce an AI Personal Assistant to assist with everyday productivity tasks – such as updating a calendar, voice-to-text translation, and real-time translation (eight languages).

The AI features also enhance the performance of avatars on the service, with AI improving the movement of user avatars. HTC VIVE is also adding support for its VIVE Ultimate Tracking product for VIVERSE users, allowing for more precious avatar movements.
