Installation of VR equipment
Because installing VR equipment can be a rather technical process, we are happy to help you with that. If you choose our installation service, our VR specialists will do the following for you:
- Delivery and unpacking of the hardware;
- Install necessary software, such as Steam and SteamVR (note: we do not install third-party software);
- Checking all VR hardware;
- Hanging the base stations in the right corner (s);
- Testing and optimizing the playing field;
- Sign up for HTC Vive business warranty (if applicable).
For small VR installations (<3 set-ups) we usually send 1 VR specialist to carry out the installation. For set-ups with more than 3 VR glasses, or complex set-ups *, we send 2 VR specialists. The rate for 1 VR specialist is € 95 per hour. For 1 set-up we usually expect to take 1.5-2 hours, but this can vary greatly per location and environment.
The transport costs that we charge are € 40 per hour traveled.
* This can be a setup in a special room or with high-end hardware, such as a backpack computer. Are you unsure about the set-up or how many VR specialists we should come up with? Then contact us.
For a smooth finish, it is important to prepare the VR room in advance for installation. There are a number of points that the space must meet in order to be compatible with virtual reality:
- Make sure you have a working internet connection (wired is recommended *);
- Provide sufficient power points on site. Please note that (among others) the following devices require power: computer, television screen, VR headset and base stations;
- Take into account the hanging of the base stations. We take a few tripod stands with us as standard to test the base stations, but eventually the base stations themselves have to be mounted;
- Television screens must be hung / placed by / in-house;
- Creating Steam accounts must be done in-house. For more Information see the instruction page of Steam. It is advisable to do this before installation, so that this does not have to be done during installation;
- Someone must be present during installation for any questions or comments.
* Does the location not have a wired internet connection? Please report this to us in time! Then we will ensure that the computers are compatible with WiFi.

Yes, you can! However, we recommend that as much as possible is installed by experts, so that you can be sure that everything is in order and works optimally.
How much does a VR installation cost?
We do not use a fixed price for installation, but calculate the price based on the number of hours we work. Depending on the space and whether the preconditions are met, we average 1,5 are installing, updating and optimizing 1 VR setup. The hourly rate that we use is € 95 excluding VAT per hour.
