How Can We Help?

Synthesis VR is a software platform for location-based virtual reality (LBVR) device management and content licensing. Our platform achieves this goal with a “Synthesis” of multiple pieces of software.

Synthesis VR Software Stack

  • Local Manager (Desktop Application) – A launcher/manager/operator app to control your VR location effortlessly.
  • Synthesis VR Proxy (Invisible Application)– A Windows service that runs in the background of a single computer, synchronizing all of your hardware with our cloud.
  • Synthesis VR Access Point (Desktop Application/Android Application) – An app for your VR Gaming PCs & Android headsets to communicate with the Synthesis VR Proxy.

Step 1: Requirements

  1. A Synthesis VR Account
    • Don’t have an account?

Step 2: Log in to the Synthesis VR Web Terminal

Step 3: Download and Install the Local Manager Application On Your Master Computer

Step 4: Download the Synthesis VR Installer

Step 5: Install The Synthesis VR Proxy On The Master Computer

Important Notes

  • Only install the proxy ONCE. Only 1 proxy per location, no more, no less
  • The proxy can be installed on any windows computer.
  • The proxy is typically installed on the chosen “master computer”
  • This computer must be on the same network as your VR devices and other computers.

Step 6: Choose your VR Platform – Standalone Headsets or PCVR?

If you are using Standalone Headsets (Meta Quest / HTC VIVE Focus 3 / Pico)

Please Go To Step 7 and Disregard Step 8

If you will be using PCVR with a Windows Gaming PC OR Setting up a Dedicated Game Server for “Game Server Automation

Please Disregard Step 7 and go to step 8

Step 7: Install Synthesis VR on a Standalone Headset (Meta Quest, HTC VIVE Focus, PICO)
