How to calibrate/synchronize your seat with content

D-BOX’s unique and patented HaptiSync technology should always accurately synchronize a haptic experience with your movie better than human perception. If this isn't the case, please follow the steps below.

Your D-BOX HaptiSync Hub and D-BOX VIBE are carefully calibrated at the factory for optimal performance in most common situations. This includes using the sound sensor (microphone) within a range of 3 meters (10 ft.) from your viewing location. However, it's important to note that external factors can sometimes cause synchronization delays:

  • Using an Audio Line-in signal with audio processors.
  • Distance and sound transmission delays through the air.
  • Mixing wireless and wired sound paths.

To adjust (or verify) the optimal calibration delay between your sound system and your HaptiSync Hub or D-BOX VIBE, please :

Step 1: Play the HaptiSync Delay Calibration (see below) and follow the on-screen instructions.
Step 2: Note a value where a haptic pulse is perceived slightly before a sound pulse.
Step 3: Note a value where a haptic pulse is perceived slightly after a sound pulse.
Step 4: Use the value in between (the average) for final calibration.
Step 5: If you do not perceive any difference, leave the calibration value at 0.
