instantreality 1.0


supported on WIN32LinuxDarwin

Driver for trackers using the Polhemus Fastrak protocol.

Please check out the tutorial on input/output streams for further information on how to use devices. Due to technical reasons the input and output fields of a device can only be determined at runtime and therefore do not appear in this interface description. Use the "Web Interface Device Management" entry in the "Help" menu of a running InstantPlayer to determine available input and output fields of a device.
