- RTX 3090 or equivalent (Note: graphics card must support 2x DisplayPort and output 7680 x 4320 resolution)
When setting up your Looking Glass 32" display alongside your secondary monitor (recommended) to use at the UI screen, ensure the following:
- The Looking Glass 32" and secondary monitor should be extended, not mirrored.
- The Looking Glass 32" should be scaled at 100%
- The secondary monitor should be set as your "primary display"
This setup will allow for you to seamlessly control your applications and content from the secondary display with the holographic content running on your Looking Glass 32".
Looking Glass Bridge facilitates communication between your computer and any connected Looking Glass devices. Required for Looking Glass applications and development tools. Download Looking Glass Bridge here.
This simple test can be run to ensure that hardware is connected, and that the proper software is installed and configured.
If successful, you display should show a test image of the Looking Glass logo on your portrait. To close this image, move your mouse over and click anywhere on the image. The image should appear 3D.
If the image doesn't appear, or you get an error, ensure that the latest version of Looking Glass Bridge is installed and that your HDMI cable and USB-C cables are properly plugged in.
Looking Glass Studio is the hologram companion app for your Looking Glass 32". With it, you can import holograms from a variety of sources, make minor edits to any hologram you create.

Some applications are controllable via the Leap Motion hand tracking hardware (included in the PC bundle). To use these features, download and install the V5 (Gemini) version of the Desktop SDK.

If your PC is not switching on when connected to the Looking Glass 32" Display
Note that when you setup + switch on the PC, avoid having all peripherals connected at once. Only have the secondary screen connected. Then, after setup, you can connect all the other accessories. This is to prevent the PC from drawing too much power at once.
If you notice that your demos seem to be running to the left side of the display and there is something wrong with how they look
Reset the Looking Glass display with the on & off with the side power button.
If you notice that some media in Looking Glass Studio is running at a slower frame rate
This could be for one of two reasons. The first is to ensure that you have Vertical Sync enabled ->
Second, ensure that the graphics card is targeting all the applications that you've installed including the web browser you're using (we recommend Chrome). For a detailed breakdown of how to set this for your PC, follow this guide here.
If USB-C ports on the back of the 32" PC aren't functioning properly.
Install the latest chipset drivers for the intel compute element. This only applies to the 32" PC purchased from Looking Glass Factory.
If the Azure Kinect is not switching on
Re-connect all the cables and make sure that the Azure Kinect USB-C cable is connected to a USB 3.0 port (these are usually blue).
If that doesn't work, right click the icon after downloading and run Depth Recorder as System Administrator
