What’s new in Varjo Base 3.0?

We are excited to release the new and improved Varjo Base 3.0, which is the latest VR headset software needed to run and manage Varjo headsets on your PC. The 3.0 release allows you to use our next-generation headsets, Varjo XR-3 and VR-3, which have recently started shipping.

In addition to all previously released features, the latest Varjo Base 3.0 release includes:

  • Support for Varjo XR-3 and VR-3  
  • Redesigned menu  
  • 200 Hz Eye Tracking support with single-dot calibration 
  • Inside-out tracking Beta
  • Preview of GeminiUltraleap’s fifth-generation hand tracking  
  • Many other performance improvements 


Let’s take a closer look at the new features.

Redesign of the Varjo Base menu

  • The redesigned menu offers an easier way to use the most important functions of Varjo Base while wearing the headset.
  • When using the menu with the Varjo XR-3 or VR-3 on, you can operate the menu simply with your hands.
  • Furthermore, you can now easily access Varjo Workspace, initiate eye tracking and toggle many other functions – such as the virtual display setup.

Single-dot eye calibration with 200 Hz eye tracking support

  • With Varjo Base 3.0, we have enabled single-dot eye calibration that supports the 200 Hz eye-tracking speeds of Varjo XR-3 and VR-3.
  • The user is asked to perform the one-dot calibration when mounting the headset, and it is extremely fast and easy to complete.
  • Varjo’s integrated eye tracking is used to optimize the video pass-through image in Varjo XR-3. It is also utilized by applications that support foveated rendering or other functions requiring eye tracking.
