Using Vahana VR, you can output your 360 stream directly to an HTC Vive plugged to the same computer used with Vahana VR.

We explain below how to set up this output.

Prerequisites : 

  • Steam and Steam VR are already installed on your computer.
  • Your Vahana VR output is already calibrated and ready to send to the HTC Vive
