Oculus Quest Development

All Oculus Quest developers MUST PASS the concept review prior to gaining publishing access to the Quest Store and additional resources. Submit a concept document for review as early in your Quest application development cycle as possible. For additional information and context, please see Submitting Your App to the Oculus Quest Store.

Device and System Configuration

Mixed reality capture requires a more performant system than is required by regular VR. This page contains suggestions for mixed reality capture PC performance and system configurations.

General Performance Recommendations

There isn’t a system or collection of components that is required to capture mixed reality content. However, using a system with a high-performance PC with at least 16 GB of RAM, SSDs for storage space, and a GTX 1080 or higher, is a good starting point.

Hardware Requirements

You’ll need the following hardware for Mixed Reality Capture on Oculus Quest. Examples provided are hardware that has been previously used by Oculus in developing this feature. Your results may vary.

  • Performant PC - a Streaming PC works well
  • USB or HDMI Camera (like a Logitech C920 or a GoPro)
  • Capture card (like the Elgato HD60S or HD60Pro) if you’re using a non USB camera
  • Oculus Quest

Your Oculus Quest and capture PC need to be on the same local network. You’ll want to make sure you’re on a 5Ghz network for best performance.

HMD Setup

To prepare your devices for mixed reality, you’ll need to cover the proximity sensor on the HMD. The proximity sensor is located above and between the lenses of your headset.

If you’re using your Oculus Quest in a location for the first time, complete the Guardian setup now. Be sure to find a location that allows you to create a sufficiently large Guardian to not interrupt your mixed reality recording.

Once you’ve finished with your hardware setup, you can proceed to the Camera Calibration process.
