Below are the mounting guidelines for the VX launch monitor. Using these guidelines, position the ceiling mount plate correctly before continuing.
The VX does not require a specific distance from the impact screen to the hitting area. The VX will read the ball and club in the space between the hitting matt and the VX itself.
Following the guidelines in step 1, use the 4 screws (and 4 plugs if needed) to attach the mount to the ceiling. Make sure the arrow on the mount is pointing towards the impact screen with the mount parallel with your impact screen.
Make sure the mount is horizontally and vertically aligned perfectly straight.

Allign the VX Launch Monitor with the openings in the ceiling mount. Lift the system into the openings and slide the system to the left into the ceiling mount until the index plunger clicks into place.

The ProTee VX is equipped with 2 high speed cameras, which needs to be calibrated when used for the first time. Run the ProTee Labs program from your desktop to start the calibration process.
Step 1: Goto the settings of ProTee Labs.
Step 2: Select the ProTeeVX from the list of devices and click CONNECT. Wait for the status on the top right to say "CONNECTED".
Step 3: When "CONNECTED" click CALIBRATE SYSTEM.
Step 4: Place the calibration board in the center of your play area.
Make sure the calibration board is pointed towards the screen and aligned straight with your HITTING MAT and SCREEN.
The alignment of the calibration board will show the cameras what is straight forward.
If you find later that the results are slightly off due to misalignment, you can recalibrate the VX at any time.
Step 5: Click CALIBRATE WORLD.
Step 6: Manually adjust your play area.
The play area defines the limits in which the VX will find your golf ball and detects shots.
Step 7: Click DONE.
You will be returned to the settings screen. The VX will now try to find a golfball in the hitting area you just defined.
ProTee Labs will show the status of the unit in the top right corner. When the VX finds a ball in the hitting area, the status will change to "Ready for shot".
