cables used, and special procedures that must be done, for example, changing settings on the playback device. This is no guarantee that all
applications and devices will have 100% compatibility with Avegant headsets due toSW and FW updates on devices out of Avegant's control.
General requirements: the smartphone must support wired HDMI display out (Lightning, MHL, SlimPort, DisplayPort Alt
Mode) with or without an adapter.
Smartphones
Phones like Pixel, Pixel XL, Samsung Galaxy S6, S7, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 5 and Motorola Nexus 6/6P do not
have HDMI out so they will not will connect directly to the headset.

If using Win10 (Bootcamp) on a Macbook Pro with non-Intel graphics and playing video on Edge,
there may be HDMI sync issues using the HDMI output. This happens on monitors as well; It is
not a headset issue. The workaround is to use a DP to HDMI adapter connected to the
Thunderbolt port.

Notes and tips
3D video
3D videos must be side-by-side in 720p format. You can test videos by searching “3D SBS 720” or 3D side by side 720” on
YouTube.
3D games
Certain games have settings for 3D modes. If the game supports side-by-side 3D, you should be able to play that game in 3D
with the headset.
and
headtracking
There are games on PC and Playstation 4 that support 3D. A web search for “Playstation 4 3D games” will return websites with
lists.
The Avegant device’s 3D function will work with Nvidia 3D Vision games when played on a PC with specific Nvidia GPUs. A full
list of games is available at nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-games.html
Headtracking will work with certain PC games in which a mouse can be used to look right and left or up and down. Avegant has
tested Overwatch, Tomb Raider and Doom.
