eMagin

I tried to use eMagin's Z800 HMD with a 6 DOF head tracker and had an error which says "** ERROR: Failed to create Emagin IC3DVisor object". I'm using 3DVisor Utility Rev C (635) and my script is as follows. I'd apreciate your help. Thanks!
---
import viz
viz.go()
visor = viz.add('emagin.dls')
def mytimer (num):
data = visor.get()
print data
viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,mytimer)
viz.starttimer(0, 0.1, viz.FOREVER)

The eMagin is a somewhat temperamental device as it only allows one program to connect to it at a time. The Vizard driver works most consistently when the eMagin Utility program is not installed on the computer. Uninstall that and give it a try.

Can't connect error

I followed the install instructions for the driver you posted (including uninstalling the z800 utility program), but when I call emagin.dls I get error:80000016, can't connecto to device. Do you have any idea what I might be able to do to fix this?

Not sure but here are some possible problems:
--One can't move the headset when connecting
--No other programs can be connected to headset
--Need to turn headset on with button

It seems that sometimes Vizard cannot connect to the eMagin after its USB cable has been unpluged and pluged back in. To fix this re-run the setup2k.exe in the install stuff folder of the zip when the eMagin is pluged in.

New eMagin sensor driver release. This .dls file keeps the display from turning off after 5 minutes.

I have attached the latest Vizard eMagin driver and modified the installation instructions.

Installing Emagin for Vizard:
1. Install the Emagin SDK by downloading the SetupWizard from here:
http://www.3dvisor.com/support.php
2. Run the Setup Wizard and install the software.
3. Plug in the eMagin USB cable.
4. Install the eMagin USB drivers by pointing the Windows hardware installer to
C:\Program Files\eMagin\drivers
5. You can now access the orientation data of the eMagin in Vizard:
import viz
viz.go()
viz.add('gallery.ive')
sensor = viz.add('emagin.dls')
viz.link(sensor, viz.MainView)

By the by, the latest eMagin.dls driver is included in the latest Vizard release. So all you need to do is install the SetupWizard.

You can also directly control the eMagin's display via the "Lab Tool" utility available on the eMagin support download page.

The latest eMagin driver is included in the Vizard installer. No need to use the one attached to this thread.
