Tips for setting up SteamVR Base Station 2.0
- Mount your base stations diagonally, at opposite corners of your space.
Each base station has a 150-degree horizontal field of view and a 110-degree vertical field of view. To maximize your play area, set up at above head height (ideally more than 2 m or 6.5 ft from the floor), with the angle of each base station adjusted between 30 and 45 degrees.
If your space doesn’t allow for this kind of setup, you can also mount the base stations on tripods and light stands, or place them on stable surfaces such as a table.
For proper tracking, set each base station at a lowest height of 0.5 m (1.6 ft) to a highest height of 6 m (19.7 ft). Depending on how high you set them up, you need to adjust the angle of the base stations upward or downward to fully cover the play area.
- Secure the base stations in a location where they can't be easily jostled or moved.
- For best performance, trackable objects should be at least 0.5 m (1.6 ft) away from a base station.
- Avoid setting up in an area with bright light, which may negatively affect the performance of the base stations.
