HTC Vive Pro Eye Guide

This guide is intended to get you up and running quickly with your emteqPRO Mask for HTC Vive. Simply follow the 3 simple steps below; Attaching the emteqPRO Mask your computer, run a demo application to save raw sensor data, and using out SuperVision monitoring application to view data in real-time. If at any point you need assistance consult the more detailed manuals and our FAQ or contact our support team.

The EmteqPRO mask for Vive Pro is also the emteqPRO Open-Face Mask and can be used in either configuration.

Warning

Do not expose the optical lenses to direct sunlight or other strong light sources. Exposure to direct sunlight may cause permanent yellow spot damage on the screen. Screen damage caused by sunlight exposure or other strong sources of light is not covered by the warranty.

Tip

There are several ways to setup the mask and its associated software, in this first instance it is recommended to use the device in Open Face Mode, i.e. not attached to a HTC Vive Pro. Using one of our provided EmteqVR SDK Demo applications, rather than integrating straight into your own Unity Project.

1. Setting up the emteqPRO Mask for HTC Vive Pro

  • Once you receive you emteqPRO Mask you can begin by selecting either the narrow or wide side pieces and insert them into the slots on the mask.
  • You can take the Vive Pro and make it ready to install the emteqPRO Mask. Start by peeling out the foam insert from the inside of the HMD, it is attached with Velcro. This Vive Pro guide for installing a USB device should describe this in detail, including some of the steps below.
  • Next remove the USB cover located by the main cable, attached above the left eye piece.
  • Insert the short USB-C to Micro-USB provided and reattach the cover.
  • Next remove the Velcro head strap from the rear of the Vive Pro but not the front.
  • Now you can insert the emteqPRO Mask into place aligning the notch at the top with it's corresponding slot on the Vive Pro.
  • Attach the USB cable to the mask and slide the head strap through the provided slot on the emteqPRO Mask before reattaching it at the rear of the Vive Pro.
  • Once done you can use the provided USB cable to attach the emteqPRO Mask to your Vive Pro. After a few seconds you should see a pop-up like this:

EmteqDAB Connected Message

Currently it is not required to pair the device via device.emteqlabs.com as the message suggests.
This will be a requirement as the beta program progresses.
Note

A step by step guide for the above with illustrations can be found here.


2. Get our EmteqVR SDK Demo for Windows 10

To process and save DAB data from the emteqPRO Mask you will need an application containing Core Services. In this example we will use the emteqvr-demos-vr-X.Y.Z.zip.

Once you have downloaded the ZIP you can unpack it somewhere and run the EmteqDemosVR.exe to load the application. You may receive a warning confirming that you want to run the app under Windows 10.

Desktop Demo App First Open

Example shown is Desktop Version, though is functionally similar to VR app.
Note

You will see a mask indicator in the top right of the window with values rapidly updating, this means the mask is fully connected. However if these values are on 0 you may need to plug in the mask again or restart the application.


3. Viewing Real-Time Data via SuperVision

Lastly to view real time data as the mask is being used you can use our SuperVision app. Also found under the downloads page, or directly linked here.

Unpack this ZIP file and install the app, once installed it will run automatically. It will be kept updated whenever a new version becomes available.

When running both EmteqVR SDK and SuperVision on the same computer the default settings will allow a connection.

If you are using the applications on different computers on the same network you will need to update the IP settings in the SuperVision app. More detailed instructions can be found here.
