** zSpace Laptop will support USB-C monitor and HDMI monitor and will support up to two functioning displays at a time, including the integrated laptop display. To switch monitors, please see Managing multiple displays.

*** zSpace displays run at 1920x1080 resolution. The zSpace Laptop does have HDMI out on the side of the zSpace display, for connecting an external display, which supports HDMI specifications 1.4. HDMI specifications 1.4 limits HDMI to 1920x1080 at 60hz when using stereoscopic. For this reason, display devices which support 4K resolutions will not display correctly if the external display is set to anything above 1920x1080 or 60hz resolutions when using stereoscopic. For assistance in changing your display resolution, please see managing multiple display configurations.

Eye wear

For reference:

  • SKU: 460-00029-01

zSpace requires the use of polarized eye wear with tracking markers. The Eye wear is available as wearable glasses with five (5) tracking markers. Missing tracking markers will lead to head tracking not working correctly. zSpace Laptop eye wear is not the same as eye wear used with previous zSpace models.
