Oculus Quest 2:
Manufacturer's Setup Guide: Oculus Quest Setup
Oculus Quest Software: Oculus Quest Software
The Oculus Quest is unique in that it uses Inside-Out Tracking (tracking performed in the headset) which does not require the use of base stations like the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. This innovation makes setup quicker and more portable. Due to high compute demands, processing in SummitVR™ must still be performed on a computer so using the Quest Data Link Cable is necessary to operate SummitVR™ on the Quest headset. You will need access to one USB-C or USB-A port depending on the Data Cable Link you purchase.
Manufacturer's Setup Guide: Oculus Rift & Oculus Rift S
Oculus Rift Software: Oculus Software
The Oculus Rift consists of a head set, two controllers, and two tracking sensors. To use the Rift you will need a computer with three USB ports and one HDMI port. In addition to this setup, you will need to download the Oculus Quest software from the link listed above.
