VR Hardware

Last updated 3 months ago

The hardware that Ovation requires to run properly can be split into two major components: a computer and a head mounted display (HMD), also known as a VR headset.


Most virtual reality software pushes up against the limits of computer processing power. Ovation is no exception with its demanding Recording and Audience systems. As such, you will need a powerful computer to run Ovation properly. Whether you decide to purchase a desktop or laptop computer, or already own one you intend to use, it should have the following recommended specifications:

  • Operating System: Windows 10

  • CPU: Intel i7 (7th Gen.) / AMD Ryzen 7 or greater

  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 1070 / AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 or greater

  • Memory: 16GB+ RAM

  • Hard Drive Available Space: 5GB

  • USB Ports: 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0

Head Mounted Display

Ovation is designed for — and has only been tested with — the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. We make no guarantees that it will run on any alternative virtual reality hardware. Ovation is not available for standalone or mobile VR, such as the Samsung Gear, Oculus Go, or Google Cardboard.
