GLOBAL LEADER ZERO LATENCY LAUNCHES ITS NEXT GENERATION IMMERSIVE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM IN THE U.S.
Zero Latency partners with HTC to bring wireless VR streaming to their award-winning platform, unveiling
a 6E wireless remote rendering solution and removing backpacks in Las Vegas, Seattle, Houston, Dallas,
Cincinnati, Orlando, and over 20 other locations worldwide
LAS VEGAS (August 8, 2022) - Zero Latency, a global leader in immersive entertainment, is announcing
the expansion of its next generation technology to the U.S., beginning with Las Vegas and brand new
locations in Seattle, Houston, Dallas, Cincinnati, and Orlando opening this summer. Since Zero Latency
first introduced the concept of free-roam virtual reality to the world in Melbourne, Australia in 2015, the
company has continued to push the progression of the industry forward. Today, its next generation virtual
reality entertainment platform release allows Zero Latency to once again provide customers with the most
effortless, immersive experience available anywhere.
In partnership with HTC, Zero Latency is now able to bring up to eight players together to experience the
same amazing content game library, but now with more freedom of movement and agency than ever
before. Now, with the ability to remove backpacks and extra wires, Zero Latency customers will
experience the most distraction-free, immersive experience available to them in the world. The new
platform uses an exclusive remote rendering stack, the latest 6E wireless technology to seamlessly
stream 5K VR to all players simultaneously, and the HTC VIVE Focus 3 to deliver an increased
performance that is up to 16 times greater than that of traditional all-in-one headsets.
“The new Zero Latency platform offers the closest experience yet to simply stepping inside another world.
We intentionally provide effortlessly immersive experiences that we think people will enjoy, and we can’t
wait to share that with more customers around the world,” said Tim Ruse, Chief Executive Officer at Zero
Latency. “By removing unnecessary equipment, like backpacks, we’re actually able to provide a
heightened player experience to our customers in the United States and across the world. Our existing
titles feel better than ever, and we can’t wait to blow people away with what we have coming next.”
Customers can now discover Zero Latency’s award-winning library of game titles without wires through its
premium game environments, including Ubisoft-exclusive “Far Cry VR,” “Sol Raiders,” “Undead Arena,”
“Singularity,” “Engineerium,” and “Zombie Survival.” The fully customized HTC VIVE Focus 3 offers
awe-inspiring 5K visual fidelity with a 90Hz refresh rate and 120 degree field of view, immersing players
and up to seven of their friends in mind-bending worlds that sound just as real as they look. Its range of
hardware and software features are game changing for location based entertainment, improving player
experience and operational efficiency.
“Our customers often tell us Zero Latency is the best VR experience they’ve ever had,” said Scott
Vandonkelaar, Chief Technology Officer at Zero Latency. “Delivering experiences as deep and interactive
as ours has never been possible with an all-in-one headset, so we built our own solution. Remote
rendering and 6E wireless streaming means we can deliver our experiences at previously impossible
performance levels, with less technology and fewer player distractions than ever. We’re thrilled by the
results and can’t wait for customers to experience it for themselves.”
Zero Latency’s latest platform doesn’t just improve the experience for customers; it changes the game for
owners and operators globally too. With a decrease in entry costs for new owners, hardware
management, equipment maintenance, and a simplified player onboarding experience, it’s the most
affordable and easy-to-use iteration of the Zero Latency platform yet.
Customers can experience the new Zero Latency platform now in the United States at Zero Latency Las
Vegas located in the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino or in one of over 20 additional venues launching
worldwide in the coming months.
