VR headset remotely

290 Views
Last Modified: 2017-11-15
Is there an option to connect a VR headset (e.g HTC VIVE or Oculus) remotely.

there will be a server that will have the program and will connect via RDP or something else, but the headset will be connected to the local client.

I think I saw VMware CEO do it. with their own program/ infrastructure.

I wonder how can I accomplish it.

Most VR headsets are connected via HDMI.

It is possible to transmit HDMI data over a wireless HDMI data link we do this, but the GPU output will need to be connected to the server, transmitted to a portable remote VR headset.
