Product information HTC Vive XR Elite HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition
The HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition is a lightweight standalone 6DOF Business focussed VR headset with depth-sensing mixed reality capabilities and a high-resolution display. The headset is designed for a variety of use cases ranging from PC-VR and Standalone Gaming to Productivity and developer functions.
HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition has the following key advantages:
High-resolution XR Passthrough including Spatial Awareness
First, the HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition provides one of the best mixed-reality experiences found on a standalone VR headset. The headset has advanced depth perception and physical object-tracking features. In combination with its full-colour RGB cameras and multiple tracking cameras, the headset is able to provide a high-resolution mixed-reality experience. This makes the VIVE XR Elite ideal for any experiences requiring realistic MR Interactions such as for training, demonstrations or visual learning.
Second, the Headset comes with a 3840 x 1920 Pixel 4K LCD Display using pancake optics. In combination with a 90Hz Refresh rate the HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition provides a very smooth visual experience allowing you to display high-quality, high FPS content with no lag getting the most out of your viewing experience. One major advantage of the VIVE XR Elite over its competitors is its 110 degrees of FOV which increases immersion in your experience.
Lightweight and balanced design with a convertible form factor
Third, the HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition like most other next-generation standalone VR headsets uses innovative pancake optics. Pancake optics enable a much smaller headset front to be created, allowing the headset to be more compact saving weight alongside improving weight distribution and increasing comfort and usability in long VR Sessions. One major distinction between the XR Elite, the Pico 4 and Meta Quest Pro is that it is the only headset with a convertible form factor. The XR Elite is capable of detaching its battery cradle making it more portable but increasing the headset’s ease of use in Developer or Demonstration Functions where the headset needs to be frequently removed.
Works as a PC VR headset
Fourth, the HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition is capable of being used as a PC VR headset. The XR Elite can be connected to your PC with a cable or wirelessly using Wi-Fi 6E. Although less reliable than wired connections the Vive XR Elite can still provide a more capable low-latency and high-resolution PC VR experience.
More enhanced tracking experience
Fifth, the HTC VIVE XR Elite Business Edition is capable of providing users with a multitude of ways to interact with the headset. As standard, the VIVE XR Elite comes with 2 controllers allowing for navigation, interaction and usage of the device to its potential. However, the XR Elite features built-in hand tracking for users who prefer or would like a more natural interaction and experience. Finally, the VIVE XR Elite also can be bought with the VIVE Wrist Tracker, which allows for enhanced hand tracking and real-world objects to be brought into the experience more easily. This makes the VIVE XR Elite one of the better headsets for creators and developers creating applications.
VIVE Business+, Warranty & Services

VIVE Business+ provides access to, device management, easier remote monitoring allowing you to control & manage your devices better, user management, Batch configuration streamlining device customisation and finally access to Kiosk Mode & VO Mode allowing users to skip initial environmental setups & have limited access to certain features and buttons when using headsets increasing ease of use, especially in demos & similar scenarios.
