You can hide, pin, and unpin the Resources pane to ensure you use the available screen space as efficiently as possible (see Customize the Vicon Nexus user interface in the Vicon Nexus User Guide).

System connection buttons

Nexus has two operating modes: Live Mode and Offline Mode. The system status indicators at the top of the Resources pane make it easy for you to immediately identify the current operating mode and the hardware connection status.

  • Live mode connects the system and starts real-time streaming.
  • Offline mode disconnects the system and stops real-time data streaming. Previously captured and saved data can be played back offline.
