Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta)

We will help you set up tracking for your headset.

Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta) is available for the Varjo XR-3 headset. 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 (Beta) uses the front-facing cameras on the Varjo XR-3 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) and controllers, you will need to set up SteamVR™ Tracking for your headset.



Set up Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta)

Follow these steps to set up Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta) 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.

2.  Put on and adjust your headset

You can now put on the headset. We will show you instructions on how to adjust the headset to fit you.

To view the instructions again at any time, navigate to the Support tab in Varjo Base and select How to wear your headset.



3.  Calibrate foveated rendering

Foveated rendering is calibrated whenever you put on the headset. Follow the instructions for calibration.



4.  Calibrate Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta)

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.

Varjo inside-out tracking (Beta) is now successfully set up and your headset is ready for use.
