Varjo inside-out tracking
We will help you set up tracking for your headset.
Varjo inside-out tracking is available for XR-4, and Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta) is available for XR-3. For other options, see the list of available tracking methods.
Positional tracking for your headset
Your Varjo headset uses a tracking system to know its exact position. Tracking allows applications to synchronize your movements in the real world with those in the virtual environment.
Varjo inside-out tracking uses the positional tracking cameras on the headset to continuously scan the room and keep track of your position. No additional accessories are required.
Note that to use OpenVR applications (such as SteamVR apps) with XR-4, you need to install SteamVR software.
With XR-3, OpenVR applications can only be used with SteamVR™ Tracking.
Set up Varjo inside-out tracking
Follow these steps to set up Varjo inside-out tracking for your headset. Before you set up tracking, you will need to start setup in Varjo Base and connect your headset.
|1. Prepare your environment to use the headset safely
Before using the headset, clear the room of obstacles and hazards, people, furniture, and any other items to ensure that you have enough space both above and around you.
If possible, cover all reflective surfaces since they may interfere with tracking. Make sure that you have good lighting in the room when you set up and use the headset.

Foveated rendering is calibrated whenever you put on the headset. Follow the instructions for calibration.
|4 A. Adjust floor level and forward direction for XR-4
Adjust the floor level and forward direction of your tracking setup. This can be done with or without controllers.
The headset can remember where it was last used. Whenever you use the headset in a new environment, you will need to set up the room again
|4 B. Calibrate Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta) for XR-3
Your headset scans the physical features of your room to calibrate Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta). Follow the instructions inside the headset to scan the room.
After calibration, you can adjust the floor level and forward direction of your tracking setup if needed.
The headset can remember where it was last used. Whenever you use the headset in a new environment, calibration will automatically start again.
