OSVR Device Compatibility

This information is necessarily incomplete: there are always new devices being supported by OSVR, and not all development happens in a centralized location or is brought to the attention of the broader OSVR community. If you notice an omission, you can submit a pull request for the file/repo that fetches the data to generate this page.

If you notice an error, let us know via the support portal, or by clicking the "Help" button in the lower-right corner of the page.

Operating System Compatibility

OSVR has been officially ported to run on the following operating systems:

See more details at the list of projects

Game Engine Support

OSVR has plugins that bring its wealth of devices and peripherals into many engines:

Display Compatibility

This table only lists those displays whose display descriptor JSON ships with OSVR-Core or is otherwise known to the wider OSVR community. Creating such a descriptor for an arbitrary display is straightforward, meaning this list is nowhere near all-encompassing.

Note that due to a temporary technical limitation, displays with multiple modes of operation are listed multiple times in the table, once for each mode.
