VIVE Business Streaming - 1.08.8

Released August 4 th 2022

Release Highlights

Dynamic Bitrate

The new dynamic bitrate feature helps keep the wireless streaming experience stable when the wireless connection is not optimal. Dynamic bitrate automatically adjusts the streaming bitrate based on your network’s bandwidth and the bitrate set in the VIVE Business Streaming console to give you the best wireless streaming experience.

Visual Sharpening

By leveraging Wave FSE (Frame Sharpness Enhancement) for sharpening, visual quality is greatly improved. We’ve also added more sharpening levels to better cater to your needs.

Audio Latency

VIVE Virtual Audio Driver has been rewritten to shorten the audio capture path. This helps with audio latency especially when playing VR apps with demanding audio needs like Beat Saber.

More Input Combinations

With the latest VIVE Focus 3 software ( v. 5.0.999.558 ) and VIVE Business Streaming ( v. 1.08 ), more input combinations are available for interacting in VR. You can now use one hand and one controller or one controller and one VIVE Wrist Tracker at the same time.

Install the VIVE Business Streaming app via the VIVE Business Streaming console

Install the VIVE Business Streaming app and app updates on the headset via the VIVE Business Streaming console. Connect your VIVE Focus 3 to your computer using a USB Type-C cable so you can install the latest VIVE Business Streaming app.  We’ve also provided an in-VR notification when an update is available, so you don’t miss out on the latest updates.
