Third-party tracking methods

Third-party tracking solutions can be integrated with Varjo headsets. Please contact your tracking technology provider for more details. Technical information on tracking plugins can be found on our Developer Portal.

 

Installing a third-party tracking plugin

Please follow the instructions below to install your tracking plugin:

  1.  Download and install the software required to run your Varjo headset.
  2.  Download and install your tracking software and plugin. Please refer to your tracking technology provider for detailed instructions.
  3.  Follow the setup instructions for your headset under Getting started:
    • For the VR-2 Pro, VR-2, or VR-1 headset:  Follow setup steps 1–3, then skip steps 4–7.
    • For the XR-1 Developer Edition headset:  Follow setup steps 1–4, then skip steps 5–8.

Important:  some OpenVR applications (such as SteamVR apps) may require the use of SteamVR™ room setup or SteamVR™ controllers. As a result, these applications may not work with third-party tracking methods. Please refer to your tracking technology provider for details.
