It is suitable for most setups and it is a standard 1/4-20 mount works with most tripods. Since the Oculus Rift originally came with one sensor but the final touch came with a second sensor. That means for a perfectly tracked room-scaling you need at least another one sensor. It requires an extra USB 2.0 or higher port if you want to use it as a third sensor. Note from Oculus: Two-sensor 360° tracking is an experimental feature, not all experiences may work as expected. Three-sensor 360° is fully supported.
