The Ultraleap camera module should be at least 10cm away from the highest point where the hand enters.
The camera tilt should be between 15° to 85° from the horizontal.
Below (or DESKTOP)
The Ultraleap camera module should be at least 10cm below the lowest point on the screen that users will interact with.
The camera tilt should be no more than 20° from the horizontal.
Ensure that the camera is a minimum of 1cm away from the screen.

The Camera Position Visualizer
The Ultraleap Camera Position Visualizer (CPV) tool is designed to help to find the ideal position for an Ultraleap camera module.
Try different camera positions to see a 3D representation of the hand tracking field so you can optimize position and angle for your physical setup.
You don’t need to have an Ultraleap camera module to use the CPV. You can even try different camera modules within the CPV to help decide which will best meets your requirements.
How it works:
Customize the virtual kiosk screen to different screen sizes and orientations
The CPV tool generates a visualization of the 3D zone where the Ultraleap camera is able to track hands and maps to button locations in the kiosk interface
You can also upload a sample screenshot of your kiosk interface. This is projected onto the virtual kiosk screen within the tool
