Setting up the base stations
Here's how to set up the base stations in your virtual production area.
Mount the base stations diagonally at opposite corners of the production area near power outlets.
If you're not able to mount the base stations using the mounting kit, you can attach them to tripods or place them on a stable surface, as long as it's high enough.
For details on using the mounting kit, visit VIVE Support.
Adjust the base stations so that the front panel of each base station is facing toward the center of the production area.
Important: Remember to peel the protective film off the front panel of each base station after setting them up.
Attach the power cables to the base stations.
Important: Only use the power cables and adapters included with the base stations.Depending on the hardware version of your base stations, the LED indicators will be white or green.
Connect the base stations to power one at a time, making sure to check the connection status on
Mars before plugging in the next one.
