TrackIR and Big Screen TV's

by Metabo » Wed Feb 17, 2016 12:28 pm

I like many others, am using a 60 inch 4K TV as my gaming monitor. The problem this poses for TrackIR is the positioning of the camera. On top of the TV is to high and your movements are not interpreted correctly. Setting the camera below the TV poses the same problem. I found that mounting the camera behind me eliminates this problem. The camera can be mounted head height and center of the clip or pro-clip. While using the clip the camera does pick up some feed back from the TV screen, but this does not appear to cause a problem. The use of the Pro-clip has no feed back light from the TV screen at all. I hope this information helps other 'Big Screen' users.

This is the exact suggestion I give when people call in about this, it is also really helpful when dealing with projectors or other custom set ups.
