Installing Virtualitics Explore on Meta Quest / Meta Quest 2
Virtualitics Explore can be installed on Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 headsets, providing a standalone (wireless) VR experience.
There are two (2) primary steps to install Virtualitics Explore on Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 headsets:
Generate a Meta Quest Code - allows you to download Virtualitics Explore from the Meta Quest Store; generated from within the Virtualitics Account Portal.
Redeem a Store Code - allows you to input your Meta Quest Code to install Virtualitics Explore from the Meta Quest app or manually within the headset.

Due to the wireless nature of standalone devices, all of the processing and rendering is done locally on the headset itself. This means that there are some performance trade-offs for the freedom of being a standalone device. You will only be able to load datasets with fewer than 130,000 rows; if a Meta Quest user is in an SVO session with another user who attempts to load in a dataset with more than 130,000 rows, the Oculus Quest user will be removed from the SVO.
Meta Quest settings include a ‘sleep mode’. When running standalone, if the Quest headset is taken off and set down, it will go into sleep mode with default settings and disconnect from SVO. If you would like to share the headset with multiple users or take on/off you can increase the time in the Settings > Auto Sleep Headset setting in Meta Quest. This should allow you to set up to 4 hours prior to Auto Sleep mode.
