We recommend a space of approximately 3x3 meters. The stereo camera’s optimal tracking distance is between 1-2 meters from the stereo camera itself but is capable of tracking up to 3 meters.
It is recommended that the space is free from any furniture so that you don’t bump or trip into any objects while in VR.
Simply stand about 1 meter from the stereo camera and hit the reset button on the motion controllers while facing the stereo camera. That will reset the play area instantly.
Both seated and standing experiences are supported. However, the key for this set up is for users/players to experience VR in a small space. That means you can peer forward, backward, or even take a step front or back, all within the play area. It is not recommended for experiences that require a lot of walking around. It is also best if the experience requires you to perform interactions while facing the stereo camera.
As long as the headset and controllers are tracked within the play area, apps designed for seated/standing-only experiences will work with the Ximmerse kit.
To accurately track people of different height, simply adjust the height of the stereo camera before use. The correct position is to have the stereo camera just slightly above the position of the users head so that it is “looking towards” and can see the user.
