The OSVR Server is the most important element of the whole system. It’s the driving force behind the Runtime Software. It initiates and manages crucial functions such as loading of various plug-ins, communications between the software and hardware, and rendering the pipeline. To use any of the applications, users are supposed to start the OSVR Server first.
Through the control panel of the OSVR Server, a user can perform many functions including enabling the HMD, checking and upgrading the firmware, and adjust various other settings. Additionally, a user can also choose either the direct or extended mode, re-center the HDK2 headset, enter the [[
interpapillary distance]], and toggle side by side. When the direct mode is chosen, the software will communicate only with the virtual reality headset, whereas, in the case of the extended mode the VR headset acts as the supplementary display option.
