Is there an option to connect a VR headset (e.g HTC VIVE or Oculus) remotely.

there will be a server that will have the program and will connect via RDP or something else, but the headset will be connected to the local client.

I think I saw VMware CEO do it. with their own program/ infrastructure.

I wonder how can I accomplish it.

Most VR headsets are connected via HDMI.

It is possible to transmit HDMI data over a wireless HDMI data link we do this, but the GPU output will need to be connected to the server, transmitted to a portable remote VR headset.

HTC Vive or Oculus Rifts VR Headsets in our testing - have performance issues and tearing when running on a single workstation computer with a dedicated 1080GTX Ti to use them.

You can do it, VMware and nVidia have been working on this...with ESXi, depends on how complex your environment is.

Developmental... and sometimes these are just showcase items... that do not reach production.

Citrix are doing some work in this area.
