The Microsoft Hololens 2 is available for in-house use to the VCU Community. If you need assistance beyond this guide, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 804.827.3594 to set up an appointment.
Required for checkout: Users must have attended an XRAM (+VR) orientation to become an authorized user.
In the Hololens 2 box you will find: One Hololens 2 headset (nosepiece falls off sometimes, watch for it), one wall charger, one USB cord.
The Hololens 2 does not need to be tethered, running independently of any computer because it is driven by Windows 10 internally. However, if you wish for viewers to see what you are seeing you will need to run the Hololens app, installed on the Alienware PC in the XRAM Studio, the App Development PC or the large display monitor in the workstation area.
Power on and adjust headset
Connecting to WiFi
Two ways to cast what you see in the Hololens 2 to the display for others to see are MiraCast and LiveStream. Miracast is far easier.
