  4. Navigate through the Demo Reel

By golly! You've just stepped through the Looking Glass.

Can you tell us a bit about your setup?

Not all adapters are created equal! If you’re using a display adapter to connect your Looking Glass to your PC or Mac it needs to support 4K video output.

If you’re unsure of which adapter to get, we recommend the following from Anker.

Anker USB-C to HDMI

Anker 7-1 USB-C Hub

Configure your display settings

  1. To configure your Looking Glass display settings on a PC, select the Start menu > Settings > System > Display. Your PC should automatically detect your monitors and show your desktop. If you don't see the monitors, select Detect.

  2. In the Multiple displays section, make sure Extend these displays is selected.

  3. Select your Looking Glass Portrait display, which should be numbered 2 on the screen. Ensure Scale and layout is set to 100%.

  4. Once you've selected what you see on your displays, select Keep changes.

Install Looking Glass Bridge

Looking Glass Bridge (formerly HoloPlay Service) facilitates communication between your computer and any connected Looking Glass devices.

It is required for Looking Glass applications and development tools. It is also required software to get your computer to communicate with your Looking Glass display.

Test Looking Glass Bridge Connection

This simple test can be run to ensure that hardware is connected, and software is installed and configured properly.

Note that the web test is not currently working in safari, please use Firefox, Chrome or Edge instead.

Note: If the image appears with diagonal lines, HoloPlay Service is not detected, or there is no Looking Glass detected, try troubleshooting your setup .
