Virtual reality streaming company Visbit is teaming up with HTC to bring 8K resolution VR videos to viewers in China. The Visbit 8K VR Player will enable folks to stream and download high-resolution videos to the Vive Focus headset. It’s rolling out today to HTC’s Viveport marketplace, and will be free to download for a limited time. Though it’s launching as a Viveport exclusive, Visbit plans on rolling it out to other headsets in the future.
A few companies in the VR space have been chasing the dream of 8K, such as Pimax’s crowdfunded headset which was recently delayed until later this year. Other headsets, such as the Pico Neo, is in the same camp as the Vive Focus and Vive Pro with its 3K display. But the headsets are only part of the puzzle — downloading or streaming high-resolution videos is also necessary for higher fidelity VR experiences with crisper, clearer images.
